Falken ESPIA EPZ II TIRE
Confident Winter Traction
The ESPIA EPZ II ensures driving confidence in the harshest winter conditions. Using the latest technology in tread design, compound and construction, the EPZ II is an excellent blend of winter performance and longer tread wear. The zigzag shape of the main groove is designed to provide resistance to hydroplaning while the tread notches create biting edges for traction on snow and ice. ESPIA EPZ II, designed for the most unforgiving winters.
“NEWLY ENHANCED” 3D CANYON SIPE TECHNOLOGY
with a much thinner sipe design increases sipe density by 25% (then its predecessor) which allows for more edges per tread block. This increases ice braking and enhances snow and wet traction.
WIDE LATERAL GROOVES
work together with wide pockets built into the tire to allow more snow to pack into the tread, clearing the road surface quicker for increased snow traction in slushy or deep snow conditions.
WIDE CIRCUMFERENTIAL GROOVES
channel water away from the tread for consistent contact with the road surface, increasing wet traction and driver confidence.
move water and snow away from the tread surface for continuous road connection with over 13,000 milimeters in edges added from its predecessor.
STRATEGICALLY DESIGNED RIB PLACEMENT
is ideal for excellent handling no matter the road surface condition. Larger outer-edge block-style ribs provide a comfortable and stable drive while maneuvering the vehicle.
SPECIALIZED RUBBER TREAD COMPOUND
provides pliability at low temperatures for excellent winter driving ability in snowy and icy conditions.
