UltraGrip Ice+ Best tire for Nordic winter conditions* With the new stud-less Goodyear UltraGrip Ice+ tire, the most extreme winter conditions can be faced with more confidence. Innovative ActiveGrip technology ensures optimized contact with extremely slippery road surfaces, delivering leading performance on ice. UltraGrip Ice+ provides excellent performance in all Nordic circumstances, from compacted snow to slippery ice. From now on, drivers facing unexpected changes in weather or road conditions can rely on having more control with UltraGrip Ice+. Goodyear’s new UltraGrip Ice+ features ActiveGrip Technology; hybrid sipes functioning together with a dual cap compound to enable optimized contact with extremely slippery road surfaces, providing improved ice performance.

3% more control on ice* 3% shorter braking on snow*

Dual cap compound The dual cap compound is comprised of two layers; a soft ice compound top layer, designed to provide excellent grip and traction in extremely low temperatures. The base layer of a harder ice compound, provides good dry handling performance at higher temperatures.

Hybrid sipes These sipes being a combination of waffle and zigzag sipes, have been designed to maintain longitudinal tread stiffness over the entire tread depth. This provides optimal grip on snow and ice throughout the full tire life.

Compared to the average performance of 3 leading contemporary competitor winter tires; on snow and ice; in January 2010 by Test World, tire size: 205/55R16 94T; Car: Ford Focus 2.0 petrol engine, in Ivalo, Finland, Report no: TW20100032; on wet and dry, in January 2010 by Test World, tire size: 205/55R16 94T; Car: VW Golf 6 V2.0 TDI, in Mireval, France, Report no: TW20100032.

Base layer: harder ice compound Maintains longitudinal tread stiffness over the tread depths

Optimum grip on snow and ice over the tire life

V-shaped tread design with wide transversal grooves

Optimum evacuation of water and slush

Better aquaplaning and slushplaning resistance

Snow Grasper

Sharp tread design elements capture snow at footprint leading edge

Improved traction and braking in snow

Multi-radius cavity with small shoulder radius

Long and wide footprint Even pressure distribution between tire and road Reduces stiffness in longitudinal direction

Improved road contact on all surfaces Even wear and improved mileage Improved traction on ice & snow Improved aquaplaning resistance

Reduces noise frequency peaks
