New ‘reduced odour natural rubber’ offers pioneering, ‘greener’ solution for tyre factories
Sumitomo Rubber Industries develops technique deemed “a major step toward” in solving long-standing odour issues surrounding natural rubber
After the Falken EUROWINTER HS01’s good performance in the winter tyre test run by the magazine auto motor sport, more positive results are pouring down on the Falken EUROWINTER HS01: “Good on wet roads”, “Good in terms of fuel consumption” and “Good on ice”, attested the independent tester of the Swiss Turing Club and the Austrian automobile, motorcycle and touring club of the Falken tyre in their 2019 winter tyre test.
In the criteria “wet road, fuel consumption and wear”, the testers awarded the title “highly recommended”, in the other tested categories, the Falken tyre achieved the title “recommended” and was therefore able to secure a place in the top ten out of 16 tested winter tyres.
“This result and those of other tests show again and again that we have made it as a serious competitor in the premium segment with our tyres,” Andreas Giese, Senior Manager of Corporate Planning/Product Planning at Falken Tyre Europe, comments on the test.
Winter tyres size 185/65R15 88T were tested.
