Apollo Tyres has announced the launch of a brand-new winter tyre, the Apollo Aspire XP Winter, in response to sustained demand from the market.

The new addition brings the tyre brand´s winter assortment up to 60 products, ensuring an optimal coverage of most popular sizes. The tyre will soon be available in 23 sizes.

The Apollo Aspire XP Winter is designed to provide snow handling and performance on wet surfaces, ensuring safety during the cold seasons.

The performance of the Apollo Aspire XP Winter on wet surfaces is optimised by water evacuation, which results in  aquaplaning performance, as well as open grooves in the shoulder that maximise water dispersion when cornering.

The tyre has a carefully-tuned compound designed especially for low temperatures, lateral sipes in the shoulder that improve traction when accelerating or slowing down, and multidirectional sipes and grooves in the centre which make manoeuvring easy.

Apollo Vredestein UK’s country manager Karl Naylor said: “In line with Apollo Tyres’ overall pledge for optimum safety and performance, the brand is, once again, offering an increased range of options for the colder months with its newest dedicated winter tyre.”

“We may not see much snow in the UK, but weather conditions can be quite demanding in some parts of the country, and the Aspire XP Winter is the answer for the safety-conscious fleet and private consumers alike,” said Naylor.
