FALKEN launches its first fog tyres – for safe, eco-friendly driving in foggy conditions

Offenbach, 1 April 2019 – Tyre specialist Falken has added a further new tyre model to its portfolio: Falken FOGGY SL321, a tyre especially tailored to foggy conditions. Falken FOGGY SL321 is primarily designed for drivers that are often on the road in areas where low-stratus fog, ground fog or morning fog are prevalent. Poor visibility and wet roads can turn driving in fog into a tricky challenge. Now Falken has the answer. The new Falken FOGGY SL321 is fitted with sensors that automatically slow the vehicle to a speed appropriate for the density and type of the fog as soon as they come into contact with it. These sensors simultaneously activate a suction intake system that helps clear the fog and restore visibility. As the fog passes through the intake system it is converted into harmless oxygen and carbon dioxide and returned to the atmosphere.
