The word "GRIP" refers to adherence to the road.
The surface interlocks with the ground and thus ensures driving stability. Decisive for the necessary grip are the already mentioned material properties, as well as the tread structure and the correct tyre pressure. Having the right profile is the key to a confident performance in winter sports. For skis and snowboards, a good cut of the edges is essential for good cornering adhesion. Depending on the cut, the driving behaviour of winter sports equipment changes. Ski or snowboard edges are sanded at an angle of 85-90°. The smaller the angle, the more aggressive the handling becomes. The edges cut like knife blades into the snow or ice surfaces and thus ensure a stable cornering position.
But that`s not enough for the winter tyres pattern. Here, well-designed snow hooks in the pattern grooves and grip edges ensure driving pleasure in alpine snow conditions. Perfectly arranged blocks have numerous sipes that provide sufficient grip on slippery roads. The tyre pressure of winter tyres also plays a decisive role in maintaining grip and not slipping.
