Product description & features
The Riken Road tyre features a symmetric tread pattern to enhance grip and handling in all driving conditions. There is also a reduction in the risk to aquaplaning thanks to the tread pattern design, while stability has increased when cornering.
Engineered with the new silica compound technology, the Riken Road tyre reduces rolling resistance, which in turn leads to lower fuel consumption. It also features shorter breaking distances in wet conditions.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
