Pirelli Scorpion Winter 2 is a premium high performance tyre dedicated to SUVs. It has been designed for winter driving, which demands uncompromising characteristics and top quality from tyres. Meeting these conditions translates into significant improvements in safety and travel comfort.
The model uses an innovative rubber compound that, compared to the previous model, enhances the tyre's performance in rain or snow, as well as at low temperatures. The tread has also been refined, including:
sculpture - to ensure long tyre life, high driving comfort, as well as low rolling resistance for improved fuel economy;
transverse grooves, running continuously between the shoulders and forming a V shape - translate into satisfactory performance when driving on snowy or wet surfaces;
snow edges - these are additional cuts that allow the tyre to "bite" into the snow better and consequently not lose grip;
the cross-section of the grooves adapted to efficient water drainage and their chamfering - these solutions minimise the risk of slipping as a result of aquaplaning.
Interestingly, as the kilometres travelled and the tread wears down, the Pirelli Scorpion Winter 2 tyre reveals further characteristics. Above all, the three-dimensional sipes change, so that the tyre's performance remains at a high level at all times, despite the natural abrasion of the rubber layer.
Pirelli is an Italian premium tyre manufacturer that has held a special place in the industry for more than 140 years. There are no compromises in tyres with the distinctive logo, especially as they are designed based on experience from motorsport.
