CS3 Tyre Tread Design

CS3 Tyre Tread Design


You wouldn’t wear hiking boots to the
office and you wouldn’t wear high heels to the beach. A tyre’s tread pattern
works in the same way so it makes sense understand whether a tyre will be safe,
stable, and represent value for money. Let’s take a closer look at the
technology in the CS3. Ever wonder what these tiny cuts are? They’re called “sipes” and they reduced slipping in the wet. As a tread contacts the bitumen, the sipes expand and pump the water out from under the tyre You get more grip and a firm contact between the tread and the road. Cooper’s latest generation sipes are
thinner and have an interlocking mechanism It’s called “Micro-Gauge 3D Sipe”. The benefit of the thinner sipe is that it
can be cut deeper into the tread block giving grip all the way through it’s life
not just the first twenty or thirty thousand kilometers. This locking
mechanism prevents a tread block from twisting and helps keep the sipe open
increasing stability and performance. The 3D Micro-Gauge Sipe Another Cooper SUV innovation is “Stabiledge”. With today’s SUV’s requiring high ride stability, Cooper strategically
placed these bumpers in the tread locks to keep the tread open and stable for
maximum traction and precise handling and that’s what makes Cooper, tyres worth owning.
