Michelin has launched the new CrossClimate 2, an all-season tyre for the UK market.
The tyre combines the benefits of a summer product in terms of wet and dry braking performance; energy efficiency and longevity, with the traction and braking benefits of a winter tyre in terms of wet weather grip and driving on snow or in low temperature conditions. This makes it an ideal choice for many UK drivers, especially in areas prone to more extreme weather events.
Available in 105 sizes, a 40% increase compared to its processor, for vehicles with 15- to 20-inch wheels, the new Michelin CrossClimate 2 features an innovative combination of advanced technologies across all of its components, but particularly its compounds and tread, allowing it to deliver lasting high performance from the first mile to the last i.e. all the way down to the legal minimum tread depth.
Michelin CrossClimate 2’s compounds and stepped sipes also help it offers improved mileage by reducing rolling resistance (comparable to that of a standard tyre) and prolonging tyre life. That, in turn, reduces fuel/energy consumption, lowers CO2 emissions and maximises tyre-replacement intervals meaning fewer raw materials are consumed and less waste overall.
