Falken Tyre to debut three new models at Tire Cologne
Falken Tyre will launch three new tyre models at Tire Cologne, held on 29 May to 1 June in Cologne, Germany. Debuting at the event will be Falken’s new EUROALL Season AS210 tyre for passenger cars, the EUROALL Season VAN11 for light trucks and vans, and the Wildpeak M/T01, a tyre designed for off-road use.
Falken’s new all-season tyre for passenger cars, the EUROALL Season AS210, succeeds the EUROALL SEASON AS200 and has been developed to deliver exceptional traction on wet and dry roads, maximum resistance to aquaplaning and improved mileage.
For light trucks and vans, the new EUROALL Season VAN11 has been designed to combine safety and excellent mileage, while the new mud-terrain Wildpeak M/T01 model is designed for off-road SUV use and is developed to cope with the toughest weather and road conditions.
Alongside its latest products, Falken will showcase its wide range of tyres for passenger cars, SUVs, light commercial vehicles and trucks. Amongst these will be its flagship ultra high performance tyre, the AZENIS FK510, which has been highly commended in recent tyre tests. Also on show will be the SINCERA SN832 summer tyre that achieved the highest performance on wet and dry roads in the most recent tyre test conducted by the General German Automobile Club (ADAC). Also receiving ‘exemplary’ acclaim from Autobild is the ZIEX ZE310 ECORUN, which launched in autumn 2017 and is aimed at the sporty driver who also wants comfort.
Falken will also present its latest technologies used in the development and manufacture of its highly praised products. These include Advanced 4D NANO Design technology, which allows engineers to simulate the complex interactions of tyre compounds at Nano level and make simultaneous improvements across grip, fuel efficiency and wear resistance. Falken’s Silent Core technology will also be shown, which utilises polyurethane foam applied to the inside of the tyre carcass to minimise noise inside the vehicle’s cabin.
Dr. Bernd Löwenhaupt, managing director of Sumitomo Rubber Europe, will deliver a presentation on future tyre manufacturing technologies developed by Falken’s parent company Sumitomo Rubber Industries, held at the Future Tire Conference taking place during Tire Cologne.
Falken’s booth will be located in Hall 7 in Area A at Tire Cologne. It will also feature products under the brand Sumitomo Tires, as well as having a Falken Motorsports race car on show. Outside the exhibition hall, the Falken Driftshow will feature demonstrations from Dutch drift legend Remmo Niezen, while a dedicated area in the Boulevard will host football activities, linking to Falken’s partnerships with the AUDI Sportpark stadium, home of Bundesliga club FC Ingolstadt 04, and Liverpool FC as the global tyre partner.
