Falken showing tyres at Automässan in Sweden
Falken is set to show its range of car, SUV, light truck and truck tyres at the Automässan industry trade show, which will take place in Gothenburg from 18 to 21 January 2023 in Hall A02, Stand 62.
Tyres specially developed for the Nordic winter will take centre stage, specifically the Winterpeak F-ICE1 and the Winterpeak F-Snow 1. According to the company, the Winterpeak F-ICE 1 studless tyre delivers “excellent handling and braking in wet, snowy and icy conditions, as well as excellent dry handling, secure stud grip and low noise.”
Meanwhile, the studless Winterpeak F-Snow 1 is also designed to take on extreme winter conditions. With those conditions in mind, Falken developed a new ultra-soft compound technology. The patented 4D-Nano Design technology was used by engineers to develop an innovative, silica-rich compound that achieves excellent durability and grip levels even at extremely low temperatures.
Another highlight of the Falken stand is the e.ZIEX summer tyre, Falken’s first developed specifically for electric vehicles, which made its debut at Tire Cologne in 2022. Falken reports that the e.ZIEX is “one of the best tyres in terms of energy efficiency ever developed” and is manufactured by the Sumitomo Rubber Group. In 2023, the e.ZIEX will be launched as Falken’s first replacement business tyre for electric cars in Europe.
Among other popular summer and winter tyres, Falken is also showcasing tyres from the truck tyre segment: the popular RI151 and GI388 tyres, both for the steering and trailer axles respectively, and the high-traction BI856 for the drive axle.
The Wildpeak M/T MT01 and A/T AT3WA models will be present too, both tyres are designed for off-road use and can withstand the toughest weather and road conditions due to their sidewall design.
