Rich Heritage in Tyre Manufacturing
Viking is a trustworthy brand with long tradition in tyre manufacturing. Founded in 1931 in Askim, Norway, the company quickly gained a prominent role of one of Scandinavia’s largest companies in the rubber industry. After the brand went international in the mid-1980s, it was acquired by the German tyre manufacturing giant Continental AG a decade later. Today, Viking is known for a number of highly sought-after tyre models, especially when it comes to winter tyres. However, the Norwegian company has relatively recently launched its first all-season tyre on the European market, applying cutting-edge technology in its design.
Buyers can now choose among several different Viking all-season tyres, depending on their needs and preferences. Switching to all-weather tyres seems like a sensible decision to an ever-growing number of drivers across Europe. That is particularly the case in countries with mild winter weather such as the UK. Their main advantage is the fact that they successfully replace both summer and winter tyres. In other words, it is a less costly option since having all-season tyres fitted to your vehicle saves you the trouble and expenses of changing tyre sets twice a year. Benefitting from unique tread patterns and rubber compounds, they provide a balanced compromise between the performance offered by summer and winter tyres respectively.
Viking’s All-Season Portfolio
Viking’s highly acclaimed FourTech is a prime example of the company’s expertise in producing all-weather tyres. The tyre’s solid shoulder blocks give it enhanced traction and short braking distances. The risk of aquaplaning is reduced to minimum thanks to an innovative tread pattern design that facilitates water drainage. The FourTech also provides outstanding grip and braking performance on snow due to its optimized sipe technology.
When it comes to economical and affordable Viking all-season tyres, the CityTech II is a very appealing option. The tyre’s strong points are primarily its high mileage and low rolling resistance. Expect also the CityTech II to provide enhanced protection against aquaplaning as well as superb handling on dry surfaces. Thanks to reduced noise levels, driving comfort offered by this tyre can hardly be matched by its competitors.
