Marangoni have announced the introduction of the RINGTREAD Blackline ICE202, a new 3PMSF drive pattern specially designed for use in severe winter conditions on vehicles operating mainly over long distances.
New Drive Pattern for Winter Segment
According to the manufacturer, the new, premium ring meets the demands of extremely competitive and selective markets, thanks to its ability to combine traction and mileage, even in the most extreme conditions typical of Nordic countries. ICE202 is 3PMSF approved for severe winter service, and the “Three Peak Mountain Snowflake” approval symbol is visible on the shoulders as well on the tread itself.
This new-generation RINGTREAD product features a bi-directional pattern featuring a variable block arrangement, open shoulders and deep 3D siping with interlock technology, providing excellent control on surfaces covered with ice and snow, even when compacted. The wide opening of the shoulders keeps the tread constantly “clean” of any snow and ice, offering optimum traction. Meanwhile, the innovative interlock sipes assure maximum tread stability during service, to maximise traction and minimise heat build-up. The extensive reinforcing bridges on the ribs provide stability on softer ground (snow, mud), resistance to very aggressive road surfaces (ice) and more regular wear.
ICE202 is already available for tyre size 315/70R22.5, while 275/70R22.5 and 295/80R22.5 sizes will be available soon.
