The Pirelli Cinturato All Season SF3 tire is born, the latest update of the four-season family for medium and compact cars and designed for motorists who move around the city and who need safe equipment all year round.

Control and security on all funds

The new product, perfected thanks to virtual development techniques, offers braking control in different climate situations. Starting from wet, so much so that all the sizes in the range have obtained the highest classification on the European label (class “A”) in wet grip; on snow, as guaranteed by the 3pmsf marking, which identifies tires that have passed a test course in severe winter conditions; in the dry, where it has levels of stability, acoustic comfort and rolling resistance closer to those of a summer tire than a winter one.

A versatility confirmed by the Dekra tests, which elect the Pirelli Cinturato All Season SF3 the best in its category for combined braking (the sum of performance on dry, wet and snow) and recognized by the TÜV SÜD body, which assigned it the Performance Mark thanks to high performance in different driving situations.

Adaptive tread: safety and on-board comfort

The Pirelli Cinturato All Season SF3 inherits the adaptive tread technology with 3D sipes from the previous product, further perfected to provide grip on snow throughout the life of the tyre. In fact, with the wear of the tread, the sipes change their shape and from straight lines they take on a zig-zag pattern, increasing the surface capable of capturing the snow despite the reduction in depth given by the consumption of the rubber.

The adaptive behavior of the design is also found in the mobility of the sipes: thanks to the ability to close and compact under the high forces exerted between the footprint and the asphalt, both dry and wet, they transform the tread, which from siped winter to summer, much more rigid and compact, enhancing braking performance, road holding and driving precision. Wider grooves and sharper angles in the directional pattern also contribute to aiding walking on snow compared to the tread of the previous generation. These features also help expel water, reducing the risk of aquaplaning. Furthermore, the optimization of the full-void ratio of the tread brings a benefit in terms of comfort: the entire Pirelli Cinturato All Season SF3 range boasts class “A” or “B” on the label with regards to noise level.
