Falken Sincera SN832 Ecorun
The ideal choice for cost-conscious compact and midsize car drivers. Created using the pioneering 4D-Nano Design technology, the innovative SINCERA SN832 ECORUN features state-of-the-art casing design.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Outstandingly economical
- Improved handling in wet conditions
- Low rolling resistance
- 4D-Nano Design technology
- Optimum combination of low rolling resistance and safe, secure handling on wet roads
Wide straight and lateral grooves develop aquaplaning resistance
WET & DRY:
Narrow sipes, high-dispersion silica compound and newly formulated wet performance enhances overall wet grip
Optimized combination of low rolling resistance and wet performance
Stiffer outer shoulders enhance dry performance
More circular profile deflects more uniformly when load is applied
Rubber compound is optimized for lower internal friction, leading to less heat generation and thus advanced rolling resistance
4D-NANO DESIGN - FALKEN’S INNOVATIVE RESEARCH AND SIMULATION PROGRAM
Pioneering 4D-Nano Design technology enables our engineers to simulate the complex interactions of tyre compound components at the nano-level.
- High-end materials research technology.
- Shorter development times.
- Simulation of energy loss / heat generation.
- Development of groundbreaking tyre compounds with signifi cantly reduced rolling resistance.
- In-depth analysis of changes in tyre compound composition throughout tyre life.
Falken tyres with the ECORUN label feature reduced rolling resistance. By reducing energy loss through friction, they save on fuel consumption - good for the environment, and good for your budget.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
