Description

Show Description

Get a grip on slick ice and frosty pavement. The strong, flexible Winter K-Guard HS tire has about half the spikes of most other winter tires, for control without excess drag. A winter essential.

  • Kevlar Guard performance adds protection while lowering rolling resistance.
  • Reflective lines for visibility on long winter nights.
  • Spikes have a tungsten carbide core for durability.
  • To ensure that spikes are permanently fixed, tires should be run in for about 40km on asphalt while avoiding any fast acceleration or heavy braking.
