Speed-Grip 2 - The winter athlete. Winter sports – for sure!
For maximum performance in snowy and icy conditions. For powerful medium range and luxury vehicles and SUVs. The Semperit quality, provides maximum safety, even under tough conditions. Improved performance on snow. Rated as “good” by ADAC Motorwelt in their winter tyre test 2014 for the size 195/65 R 15 91 T.
A 3-phase high performance compound resistant against temperature variations provides a convincing performance on icy, wet and dry road surfaces.
Improved performance on snow
Very good braking on ice
Good dry handling
Improved performance on snow. Additional gripping edges ensure improved interlocking of the tyre on snowy road surfaces. Your advatage: increased grip when accelerating and braking.
Very good braking on ice. Optimal scraping edges through straight sipes design in the centre section. Your avantage: best braking performance on icy road surfaces.
Good dry handling. Interwoven block structure for strong supporting effect with longitudinal and lateral forces. Your advantage: sporty driving experience on dry road surfaces.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

Internal noise level
21.08.2014 from Johnny H Fitted set of 4 to the Jazz and was impressed during the last winter. Grip levels were very good, and no significant noise/consumption increase from the summer tyres I use. I need to use the car in winter for on-call purposes so depend on the tyres to do their job - and they did.
06.04.2013 from Darren Once again winter tyres were needed this winter. Was able to get around with ease, even on snow covered roads where others were obviously struggling. Probably the best winter tyre I have bought so far
