Product description & features
Designed to give drivers confidence when driving through winter conditions, the Agilis Alpin has been designed by Michelin to deliver outstanding braking on snow covered roads – improving the safety of the tyre.
The Agilis Alpin provides superior handling due to a specially designed tread pattern that features open shoulder and broad blocks to improve grip. The tyre features Michelin designed ‘Durable Contact Patch’ so more of the tread stays in contact with the road. As well as this, the Agilis Alpin have been constructed with a wear-resistant compound to allow the tyre to have a longer life.
In order to deliver further confidence in winter conditions, the Michelin Agilis Alpin features the Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake badge - awarded to tyres that ensure exceptional performance in extremely difficult winter weathers.
What is an All Season tyre?
Designed to cope with all sorts of conditions - good performance delivered throughout the year. Moderate natural rubber content to stop the tyre hardening in temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius – enhancing grip. Designed with moderate tread depths that have been engineered to help deliver a longer tread life than many summer tyres
How can I tell an All Season tyre performs in winter weather?
This tyre features the EU sanctioned 3PMSF marking - Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake: This accolade was introduced to be an easily recognisable symbol which displays that the tyre has passed rigourous tests to prove it is suitable for driving in winter weather. It confirms the winter suitability of a tyre.
Are All Season tyres suitable for the UK?
Given that the UK suffers from moderate and interchangeable winter conditions - with severe ice and snow becoming uncommon for much of the country - this makes all season tyres a very good choice for our roads. As they are able to cope with these conditions very well.
Do I need to swap my tyres throughout the year?
Given the nature of all season tyres, which can perform equally well in the summer months and the winter months, the need to replace tyres depending on the seasons is not required when all season tyres are fitted.
