Marangoni’s new Blackline tyre specially designed for extreme winter conditions

The Italian expert in cold retreading of truck and bus tyres, Marangoni Retreading Systems (Marangoni), has just introduced the new Ringtread Blackline ICE202: a premium tyre specially designed for use in severe winter conditions ?on long-distance vehicles. Apart from its ability to combine traction and mileage, the tyre is also 3PMSF drive-approved for winter service where a safe drive is essential.

The latest Blackline product in the RIngtread System hasa bi-directional pattern with a variable block arrangement, open shoulders, as well as deep 3D siping with interlocking technology, which provides excellent control on surfaces made slippery from ice and snow.

Specifically, the wide opening of the shoulders ensures the tread is constantly “clean” of any snow and ice buildup, to allow for greater traction. The innovative interlocking sipes assures maximum tread stability during service, which also minimises heat build-up. To pull it all together, the extensive reinforcing bridges on the ribs provide stability on softer ground (snow and mud), resistance on moreaggressive road surfaces (ice), and regular wear.

All tyres in the Blackline range, including the ICE2020, features a specially-developed compound that ensures better rebound at low temperatures and reduced rolling resistance, and longer tread life even on the most demanding surfaces.

Currently, the ICE202 is already available for tyre size 315/70R22.5, with 275/70R22.5 and 295/80R22.5 launches soon to follow.
