The studdable tyre fulfils the highest demands of winter and sets new standards with its perfected technology.
Tested under the toughest climates of Sweden, Gislaved offers superb grip and control in all conditions
Optimal snow traction
Fits perfectly for example to Renault Trafic, VW T5 and Mercedes Viano/Vito/Sprinter
Perfect ground contact and optimum traction are thus guaranteed even in icy conditions. Even in adverse weather conditions the NORD*FROST VAN still offers good steering and brake performance for Vans. Greater adjustment to different depths of snow through the patented ‘Salmon Stairs’ for optimum snow traction. Sipes in the shoulder and central areas with optimum positioning of multiple biting edges for excellent brake performance in snow.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
