Nankang Activa SV-55


Superior handling in cold weather is provided by the asymmetric pattern design and special compound. Three-dimensional sipe improves snow handling and ice traction performance. Multi-tiered shoulders enhance gripping and shovelling ability. Four circumferential groove tread pattern design with 36% void ratio has effective drainage performance to prevent hydroplaning or slipping on a wet surface.

  • The sipes enhance cornering manoeuvrability and strengthen lateral force
  • The 2-in-1 pitch design minimizes rolling noise by depressing resonance effect
  • The cylindrical sipes on the outside help to form icicles to enhance crawling and gripping ability on snowy or icy surfaces
  • The linkage between outside blocks strengthens block stiffness to enhance corning manoeuvrability
