The Pirelli Scorpion Winter is a performance winter tire for SUVs and light trucks.
- Sporty driving and good performance in winter conditions
- Scorpion Winter is built to help you stay in control on challenging winter roads
- They’re designed to latch onto snow and pack it deep into the tread grooves for the peak of winter traction provided by snow-on-snow grip
The Pirelli Scorpion Winter, specially designed for premium SUVs and crossovers, was developed closely with Porsche and Volkswagen and worked with the latest traction control and ABS systems. Tested under severe weather conditions, Pirelli's ScorpionWinter scored higher than other competitors in its class for braking distances, handling and traction on dry, wet and snowy roads, even at low temperatures. The result is a tire that provides safety, stability and maximum control in winter conditions, and a comfortable ride and low noise level.
Optimized tread compound for improved grip and handling
Featuring a tread compound that introduces a new polymer blend and higher silica content, the Pirelli Scorpion-Winter provides improved grip on wet, snowy and icy roads. In addition, this compound is molded into a directional and symmetrical tread design, which features rigid blocks with modular geometry for improved dry handling. The tire's new optimized footprint profile also contributes to greater stability and handling.
Scorpion Winter's deep, wide circumferential grooves provide effective water drainage for increased hydroplaning resistance, greater control and steering precision, excellent traction and safe braking on wet and slushy roads. The specific layout and many sipes allow the tire to bite into snow and ice and provide optimized and balanced braking performance.
Longer life and fuel economy
Thanks to its reduced casing weight and aerodynamic design, the Pirelli Scorpion Winter tire offers low rolling resistance, reduced noise, longer life and improved fuel economy. The Scorpion Winter also features Pirelli's ECOIMPACT icons that highlight the tire's contribution to the environment regarding fuel efficiency, clean air and low noise.
