Renewal of the Ziex Ecorun range

A tyre “designed for versatile drivers who appreciate comfort”. This summarises Falken’s objective for its new Ziex ZE310 Ecorun range. Presented at an international trade show, the Japanese tyre manufacturer’s latest addition will replace the Ziex ZE914 Ecorun, winner of multiple awards from various independent testing organisations.

2 tread designs available

Available for 14- to 18-inch rim diameters, the Falken Ziex ZE310 Ecorun comes in two versions. Sizes up to 195 mm in width come with a 3-circumferential groove design, while models with widths over 205 mm have a 4 groove tread pattern. According to the tyre manufacturer, this variation in tread design ensures that the tyre performs consistently throughout the size range. As such, the 3-groove design improves tread rigidity and increases the tyre’s contact area with the road, whereas, the four-groove design improves water dispersal to reduce the risk of aquaplaning.

The Ziex ZE310 Ecorun also features Falken’s “Adaptive Constant Pressure“ technology designed to adapt to the road surface. With this innovation, the tread structure enables an even distribution of the vehicle’s weight. Directional stability is therefore enhanced and tyre wear is more even.

The Ziex ZE310 Ecorun also uses the “Nano 4D” rubber compound, developed by Falken engineers. This technology increases tyre life by 30% compared to its predecessor.

On the European tyre label, the Ziex ZE310 Ecorun boasts the top rating of A for wet braking in all sizes, as well as ratings between C and E for rolling resistance.

Availability

The Falken Ziex ZE310 Ecorun will be available from spring 2018 in 40 sizes for 14- to 18- inch rim diameters. A further 58 sizes will follow and will be released during 2018.
