Falken uses 4D-Nano technology to develop winter van tyre

Falken Eurowinter VAN01

Falken has added the Eurowinter Van01 to its product range. It features significantly improved wear life as well as enhanced snow traction and handling.

The primary development objectives were extended wear life, improved fuel economy and outstanding wet and snow performance.

The tread design of the new tyre features ACP (Adaptive Constant Pressure), which noticeably improves wear life, directional stability and overall traction by evenly distributing pressure across the whole tread area.

Compared to its predecessor, snow handling has been improved by 20%, snow traction by 10% and wet braking by 5%.

For its new winter van tyre, Falken has used its cutting-edge 4D-Nano technology that utilises super computer simulation at the nano-scale to significantly improve molecular bonds between compound components.

The Eurowinter Van01 is available from July 2016 in 17 sizes, ranging from 14-16 inches, with an aspect ratio of 60-75 and will come with a speed index of ‘R’ or ‘T’.

Falken’s newest winter van tyre features a rolling resistance EU label of ‘C’-‘E’, a wet labelling grade of ‘A’ and a sound grade rating of ‘2’. All sizes are marked with the M+S Symbol and the snowflake symbol.
