New Amtel Products Launched in Russia
Meanwhile in Moscow, Amtel-Vredestein N.V. has introduced its latest Amtel-braded winter products at Moscow International Motor Show 2006 (30 August to 10 September). The new products are called the Amtel NordMaster ST-310 and the Amtel NordMaster CL winter tyres.
According to the company, the studded Amtel NordMaster ST-310 tyre is designed to ensure grip on fresh snow. It features a wide zigzag profile perpendicular to the driving direction and circumferential grooves with cutting edges for road grip and steering control. All treads feature concentrated zigzag patterns, which are said to substantially shorten the braking path and acceleration time, preventing slipping and skidding.
Amtel describes its second winter tyre (the NordMaster CL) as a quiet and soft tyre for comfortable and safe driving. “The tyre’s tread pattern incorporates the best qualities of previous models in the series,” company officials said in a press statement.
