A few hours ago Pirelli presented us his new all season tire. Under the name Cinturato All Season SF2, Pirelli presents us with a tire that complies with winter regulations and offers, depending on the brand, a safe driving experience in all weather conditions.
The Cinturato All Season SF2 will be marketed in 65 sizes for 15 and 20 inch rims, and its target cars will be modern utility cars, midsize saloons and SUVs. All of them will feature the double winter marking M + S and winter pictogram 3PMSF (illustrated by a mountain with three peaks and a snowflake).
The new member of the Cinturato family is the ideal choice for those who use their vehicle in urban environments, live far from mountainous areas – with temperate climates – and cover around 25,000 kilometers per year.
According to the brand itself, the Cinturato All Season SF2 is one of the products of the all-weather segment with the best performance in any typical situation of the four seasons, as guaranteed by the organism German certifier TÜV SÜD, which has recently distinguished this product with its’ Performance Mark. In the same way, another reference in the matter, the also German DEKRA, attests that the new Cinturato All Season SF2 gives the driver maximum control thanks to shorter braking distances on dry and better handling in snow compared to its direct competitors – as well as excellent braking on wet or covered surfaces. light snow.
A new adaptive compound also provides a lower rolling resistance which equates to lower fuel consumption and greater autonomy for electric car batteries. These characteristics make it possible to achieve label “B” classifications in rolling resistance for the vast majority of references in the range.
According to Pirelli, its new pattern automatically adapts to peak summer and winter temperatures to ensure safer mobility. In the dead of winter, at low temperatures, the tread grooves are left open to provide better grip on snow. On the contrary, in case of braking on dry or wet asphalt they close, increasing the stiffness of the blocks and generating greater grip against the road surface. This adaptive system is due to the 3D technology of the tread channels, which close completely when there is no snow, turning a winter cut cover into a summer one, allowing better control of the vehicle in typical ground conditions. dry and wet. In addition, the design of the lateral grooves in progressive sections, in line with the wide central channel, guarantee an efficient expulsion of water when it rains, improving safety and resistance to aquaplaning.
In order to offer greater safety, the Cinturato All Season SF2 equips, in some measures, technology Seal Inside, which allows you to keep going even in the event of tread perforations up to 4 mm in diameter. A mousse Specially attached to the inside of the cover, it automatically seals the perimeter of the piercing object, preventing the escape of air and consequently maintaining pressure.
Another anti-puncture option available is the system Run flat, which improves safety without compromising mobility. This technology maintains the stability of the vehicle in cases of abrupt drop in pressure, allowing it to continue for 80 kilometers at a maximum speed of 80 km / h. For this, special reinforcements are incorporated in the flanks capable of resisting vertical and horizontal loads even in the event of absolute absence of pressure.
The new Pirelli All Season SF2 includes warranty ‘TyreLife‘, which covers the replacement of one tire per set free of charge in the event of irreparable damage during the first year of purchase. The only cost to be covered by the owner in this case will be the environmental tax of the discarded wheel.
