Dunlop launches Winter Response 2

By Connor ORourke

Dunlop is launching its new Winter Response 2, a winter tyre for small and compact cars. The tyre offers an impressive performance when braking and handling in winter conditions. Building on the European tyre label which has been mandatory since November 2012, the Winter Response 2 offers a B rating in wet grip on 16 of the 22 sizes to be launched on the market.

The Winter Response 2 is the next generation tyre to the successful Winter Response and the perfect complement to SP Winter Sport 4D, which covers the high-performance range of Dunlop winter tyres portfolios. The Winter Response 2 is available in 22 dimensions from 155/65 R14 to 195/65 R 15.

The Winter Response 2 is designed to tackle important safety issues such as braking performance, handling on snow and ice and in the wet winter conditions. Through its innovative technology, these needs have been improved on Winter Response 2, as compared to its predecessor. This includes the incorporation of 45 degree shoulder blades to improve grip on snow and ice when cornering. The new profile design with an innovative tread block geometry improves traction under acceleration and braking on snow covered roads.

The increased density of blades leads to more biting edges and provides a more stable performance in the wet and provides additional traction, shorter braking distances and more stable cornering on snow.
