Notable Features

Fulda Kristall Control HP2 is a studless passenger-car winter tire with a directional tread pattern that will help your car to perform to its full potential even on winter roads completely covered with snow. This tire provides a confident handling response on wet pavement as well. A high-quality product from Goodyear in the mid-price segment.

The Fulda Kristall Control HP2 model was presented by the German manufacturer in 2016. It came to replace the Fulda Kristall Control HP model, which had been launched in mass production six years earlier. Fulda Kristall Control HP2 Over the time of its existence, the predecessor model was able to become a triple Guinness Book record holder. In 2013, the Fulda Kristall Control HP tire model scored the record for “Fastest figure eight track” on a passenger car, while in 2012 it set new benchmarks for “Shortest braking distance of a vehicle on ice” and “Fastest vehicle slalom on ice”. Considering such outstanding achievements of this comparatively inexpensive tire, one can safely say that the Kristall Control HP2 is in for as much success.

The patented Fulda Snow Catcher technology, which showed itself at its absolute best in the first-generation model, has been also successfully used in the new model Kristall Control HP2. “Snow Catcher Technology” works according to the principle that nothing sticks to snow better than snow itself. Profile grooves are arranged closely together to ensure that the snow stays within the tread profile and is heavily compressed. Overall, this leads to improved traction on snow.

Tire technologies The Fulda Kristall Control HP2 also comes with the “Bubble Blade” technology, already familiar to the fans of the German brand, which provides a good balance between grip and traction on snow and ice, and the necessary driving stability for excellent handling and braking performance.

Directional tread pattern is the best solution for the winter driving conditions. Due to efficient evacuation of water and melted snow from the contact area, it increases the tire’s hydroplaning and slushplaning resistance, which keeps the overall ground adhesion on a rather high level.

The Fulda Kristall Control HP2 tire model utilizes upgraded frost-resistant tread compound, which keeps the tire supple even at low temperatures, ensuring excellent braking and handling characteristics as well as accurate steering behavior. The inclusion of silica in the tread compound improves the tire’s grip on wet pavement.

This winter tire model can be driven at speeds up to 190 km/h.
