The R601 is engineered with an all season compound that enhances grip in dry, wet, and even wintry settings. This compound, which maintains its elasticity in various settings, forms into a symmetric tread pattern with high density sipes that bolster wet traction. The sipes generate extra biting edges in order to improve grip and safety on wet roads. A set of circumferential grooves expel water and slush away from the footprint in order to combat hydroplaning risks and maintain steady rubber to road contact. This tire is equipped with an optimized contact patch that amplifies steering responsiveness as well as to encourage even wear. The R601 features an optimal pitch sequence with a curved sipe pattern that minimizes road and tread pattern noise for a comfortable, quiet ride.
