The Falken Espia EPZ tire is an excellent winter performance tire that provides grip on ice and deep snow, as well as on dry cold roads.
The canyon sipes are specially designed and coupled with a micro-glass fiber rubber compound to allow this tire to grip the ice and handle snowy road conditions. This is a non-studded alternative to the traditional winter tire.
Channeling water away from the contact patch in wet conditions while increasing hydroplaning resistance is accomplished through the circumferential grooves while the dual purpose tread patter offers a wider center tread area to enhance performance of ice breaking while increasing the contact patch on the road.
Additional traction in snow and ice is optimized through the 3D canyon siping technology, which helps create additional biting edges. The shoulder tread area is designed with wide lateral grooves to grab snow in the harshest conditions while the shoulder wave sipe offers stronger resistance to wandering.
