Technology description: Michelin ALPIN 5 is a response to the needs of all drivers who expect their winter tyres to provide excellent performance regardless of the weather and driving safety in any conditions.
The model is equipped with a directional tread pattern which ensures the appropriate traction on snow and increased aquaplaning resistance. With its optimised structure, the tyre also offers improved driving precision. The sipes deployed at the extreme depths of the tread blocks provide maximum performance parameters for the whole of the tyre’s lifespan. This is also supported by the distribution of pressures acting against the surface of the ALPIN 5, so the tread wears uniformly and slowly.
The tyre was designed using an innovative rubber compound ensuring good performance parameters in low temperatures. With this, the ALPIN 5 provides better grip on snowy and wet surfaces and also reduces fuel consumption. The Helio Compound 4G rubber mixture contains sunflower oil and silica. Thanks to its flexibility, the tread adheres to the road with its maximum area no matter the weather. As a result, the grip and stability while driving always remains optimum.
The combination of high-quality components with the optimised tread pattern improves the acoustic comfort inside and outside of the vehicle. Noise generated during operation are effectively dampened so the driver and passengers may enjoy quiet inside the vehicle.
