Ecovision VI-682 uses a special tread compound that has low rolling resistance which reduces overall fuel consumption and hence minimises its carbon footprint.
Environmental Friendly Tread Pattern
VI-682 tread pattern has a design that reduces deformation when in contact with road giving more stable drive, lower energy loss and better fuel efficiency.
Special Tread Compound
Ecovision VI-682 uses a special tread compound that has low rolling resistance which reduces overall fuel consumption and hence minimises its carbon footprint. The silica compound also improves wet grip performance.
Quiet Ride Tyre's design reduces vibration and noise The New Groove profile is designed to distribute stress on groove wall evenly and prevent groove crack Diagonal grooves and lines provide better traction and braking performance.
Pattern blocks in variable sizes that are optimised using frequency spectrum analysis to provide a quiet ride.
VI-682 uses a Groove Design Four* circumferential grooves ensure quick water drainage to prevent aquaplaning.
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.
