Falken Espia EPZ II



Description

The ESPIA EPZ II ensures driving confidence in the harshest winter conditions. Using the latest technology in tread design, compound and construction, the EPZ II is an excellent blend of winter performance and longer tread wear. The zigzag shape of the main groove is designed to provide resistance to hydroplaning while the tread notches create biting edges for traction on snow and ice. ESPIA EPZ II, designed for the most unforgiving winters.

  • Dual-purpose tread pattern (Offering both an ice face and snow face, through a Falken-patented dual tread pattern, which provides for a wider center tread and expanded lateral shoulder area grooves, improving overall grip on snow and ice).
  • New canyon sipes technology (Siping inside the block is composed of complex zigzag bodies which are angled and deep to allow the tread to flex and grab additional traction in every winter condition).
  • Self-maintenance mechanism (An antiaging agent continues to seep from the base tread to fight ultra violet rays, as well as repeated bending. This enables the tire to work better, by controlling aging and maintaining the fundamental functions of a tire).
  • Improved performance (The new tire offers a longer life, better stability and stronger performance than previous studless tires).
  • Shoulder-edge wave sipe (Provides a stronger resistance to wandering which encourages a confident and consistent driving experience).

What is good?
Snow/Ice Performance
These tires are great for those who live in the snow area because their performance in snow and ice is excellent! And in the dry the traction is also good. My ride is comfortable and relatively quiet.
What is bad?
Wet Performance
The main shortcoming is in that the wet traction is dangerous.
Comments
I recommend them only for the snow riding.
