Fulda launches Kristall Control SUV, the High Performance SUV tire for tough winter conditions
Brussels, May 2017 – Fulda announces the launch of Kristall Control SUV, its new High Performance (HP) SUV tire for challenging winter conditions. The tire is developed specifically for modern SUVs. Due to their weight and high center of gravity, these vehicles require specific tires which offer more grip and better handling, especially in winter conditions. With its latest extension of the range, Fulda delivers a high-quality tire, harboring German technology at a competitive price point without compromising on performance.
High performance for tough winter conditions
The tire provides excellent control on snow, thanks to Fulda’s Snow Catcher Technology. The center grooves of the tire work together to form an interlocking network that catches the snow when driving. Thanks to its good adhesive qualities, snow itself can be used to improve grip.
The advanced tread design with SUV Block Stiffeners increases the stability of SUVs on dry roads. This feature uses humps between the center blocks to increase the tread’s rigidity.
Additionally, straight sipes on the top of the tread surface guarantee increased rubber volume. Combined with the 3D Bubble Blades feature, this provides stronger blocks for improved control on dry roads.
Great value for money
The tire’s tread design creates an optimized footprint shape with uniform pressure distribution, resulting in even wear and high mileage.
The tire’s low-weight construction and engineered compound technology are responsible for better control of energy loss, resulting in lower rolling resistance and reduced fuel consumption.
The Kristall Control SUV is currently available in six sizes.
