Apollo Vredestein has introduced a brand-new ultra-high-performance Vredestein winter tire. Unveiled in Cologne, Germany, the company’s newest product promises unrivaled winter performance.
The new winter tire has been developed for performance, offering maximum grip while cornering, and short stopping distances in the wet. The Wintrac Pro is available in speed rating Y, making it usable for speeds of up to 300km/h.
While this tire heralds a new evolution for Vredestein in terms of structure and construction, the biggest innovation lies in the use of materials. The unique use of resins with high silica in the tread compound ensures the best possible handling and braking on snow and wet surfaces.
The tread of the Wintrac Pro also features a new design of the sipes and grooves. Central grooves and shoulder sipes are positioned at sharp angles to ensure the best possible handling on snow, while the horizontal sipes in the central area guarantee outstanding braking and acceleration.
The long- and oval-shaped footprint enhances water evacuation from the tread, improving performance on wet surfaces. This results in a direct steering response and well-balanced cornering behavior.
