New summer UHP tire: The Fulda SportControl
Feel better about driving. The SportControl tire has great grip and handling on the road, shorter braking distances in wet conditions, and it reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
The newest generation of Fulda tires is designed around 3 key pilars: Control , Quality and Economy - allowing you to get the most out of your tires.
Fulda tires - for Smart Buyers!
Controlled sporty driving
As the only four points of contact between a vehicle and the road, tires play a crucial role in helping a driver stay in full control.
Our newest sports tire features a functional design with progressive humps throughout the width of the tread (ensuring an optimal stiffness throughout the tread), and maximized force distribution from tire to road.
Excellent control in wet conditions
Every driver knows that wet-weather driving can be extra challenging.
The SportControl full silica tread compound and new ‘Aqua Flow’ tread grooves provide enhanced grip in wet conditions, which means shorter breaking distances.
Reduced fuel consumption
A modern low weight carcass on our new tire reduces the rolling resistance, which means less fuel consumption, less heat generation and fewer CO2 emissions. That translates to value-for-money over the tire's entire lifetime.
Cruise with peace of mind
With its clever combination of tire construction and tread design, the Fulda SportControl wears evenly over time, resulting in a comfortable ride with low noise emission and higher mileage levels.
