Semperit Speed-Grip 3 SUV

Manufacturer's description

The Semperit Speed-Grip 3 SUV is a non-studded directional tire designed by Austrian brand engineers for the 2017/2018 winter season. They are designed to provide maximum safety on slippery winter roads to owners of cars with high ground clearance. Their characteristic features the manufacturer calls excellent grip on snow, fast and confident braking on ice, as well as excellent handling in dry road conditions.

Notable Features

Semperit Speed-Grip 3 SUV is a directional studless tire designed by the Austrian brand to ensure maximum driving safety for the owners of city SUVs on slippery winter surfaces.

According to the manufacturer, this model, launched into mass production back in 2017, is characterized by excellent snow traction, efficient ice braking, and crisp steering response on dry pavement.

Semperit Speed-Grip 3 SUV The Semperit Speed-Grip 3 SUV came to replace the Semperit Speed-Grip 2 tire model, manufactured since 2011, which, in spite of its affordable price, demonstrated very decent results in independent winter tire tests.

The six years’ difference between the two generations has not been in vain – the performance of the “3” model has been significantly improved. Among other things, the engineers were able to improve the ice braking performance, handling response, traction on loose and packed snow, as well as take the tire’s hydroplaning resistance on a whole new level. Blue: Speed-Grip 3 SUV / White: Speed-Grip 2 SUV To further optimize the Speed Grip 3 SUV winter performance, the engineers increased the number of the tread friction blocks that form numerous biting edges. Due to this feature, the water film that forms on the ice surface during the braking is dispersed faster, which leads to shorter stopping distances.

In addition, the transition area between the tire shoulders and sidewalls features small sipes that visually look like a mountain range. These provide still more biting edges and strengthen the Semperit Speed-Grip 3 SUV snow grip. High safety on snowy, bendy roads The efficiency of snow braking performance of this directional tire model is ensured by the numerous tread blocks, strewn with 3D winter sipes. The handling response and extra lateral stability during cornering and maneuvering is further improved by the special little “snow claws” hiding at the bottom of the traversal grooves. Short braking distances on snowy surfaces The deep circumferential grooves ensure quick evacuation of water and melting snow from the contact area, thus preventing the occurrence of hydroplaning and slushplaning effects. Short braking distances on icy surfaces For the drivers’ convenience, the Semperit Speed-Grip 3 surface features two tread wear indicators that provide information about the remaining tread depth.
