ALL ADVANTAGES AT A GLANCE

Benefits

  • Nothing is more treacherous than an icy winter road. That’s why YOKOHAMA developed iceGUARD, the tyre that sets a new standard for winter control and safety. Superior technology and advanced compounding deliver the grip you need to tame the most dangerous winter driving conditions. Contact your YOKOHAMA dealer today.

Feature

  • 1) There are three layers of multi-layer sipes, in a new configuration. These complex multilayer sipes support each other and prevent the blocks from bending in to each other. In addition, the high-density arrangement means that each multi-layer sipe is nearly 30% longer on tyre surface, which delivers an excellent edge-effect on snowy and icy roads.
  • 2) Deliver optimum performance even without a break-in period.
  • 3) The triple-belted blocks with a large, wide, centralized block design improve the braking stability as well as the performance on wet, dry and icy road surfaces.
  • 4) The newly-designed slush grooves deliver excellent drainage performance in slushy, snowy and wet road conditions due to their varied width groove design from the centre to the outer side.

YOKOHAMA´s water absorbing Technology - “Micro hydroplaning” on icy roads

YOKOHAMA´s water absorbing Technology - “Micro hydroplaning” on icy roads
The layer of water above the ice is the biggest contributor to loss of traction. It causes “micro hydroplaning“ on icy surfaces. A traditional rubber rides on the surface water because the thickness of the layer of water in the -6 to 0°C zone becomes more than the normal undulations of the tyre surface can manage to work effectively.

YOKOHAMA´s water absorbing Technology - Removing water with powerful absorbent compounds

YOKOHAMA´s water absorbing Technology - Removing water with powerful absorbent compounds
YOKOHAMA’s original compound technology incorporates water-absorbing
compounds, putting the tyre in contact with the actual ice.

YOKOHAMA´s water absorbing Technology - Triple Water Absorptive Materials

YOKOHAMA´s water absorbing Technology - Triple Water Absorptive Materials
* 1 = Absorptive Silica (carbon) is not the same as the silica (carbon) used for polymer reinforcement. The molecular type is (almost) the same but the size of the absortive silica particle is much larger than that of regular silica. This is included in order to absorb the film of water.
* 2 = The quantity of these materials within each tyre (215/60R16 95Q).

Climate Aadptive Rubber

Climate Aadptive Rubber
Ice is the most dangerous condition you’ll encounter in winter driving.
But it’s not the only hazard that awaits. Road surfaces change drastically
as temperatures rise and fall. That’s why YOKOHAMA developed CLIMATE ADAPTIVE RUBBER.

Removing water in the -6~0°C zone

Removing water in the -6~0°C zone
The “Power Absorptive Balloons“ and “Absorptive Carbon II“ remove water from icy surfaces.

Biting and sticking in the ~-6°C zone

Biting and sticking in the ~-6°C zone
The “Power Absorptive Balloon“ uses the hard shell to create a micro edge effect. The Flexible Polymer keeps the rubber soft, allowing it to stick to icy surfaces.

Stiffness in the 0°C ~ zone

Stiffness in the 0°C ~ zone
The hard shell of the “Power Absorptive Balloon“ keeps the tread block solid, for stable handling on dry surfaces.
