Uniroyal RainExpert 3
The Uniroyal RainExpert 3 is the successor to the very popular Uniroyal RainExpert. Compared with its predecessor, the tyre is noted for its improved performance on wet surfaces (specifically by 4%), excellent driveability on dry roads, increased driver comfort, reduced rolling resistance (by 5%) and more even wear (also improved by 5%). As many as 69% of users of the previous model would buy its successor*.
The Uniroyal RainExpert 3 is the successor to the popular Uniroyal RainExpert (in view of its excellent rating by experts and drivers and its great performance in tests). Compared with its predecessor, the tyre has been made using innovative, effective technology, such as the brand new tyre tread pattern - asymmetric with elements of a directional tread. The tread has a different construction on either side of the tyre. The inside of the tyre features two wide, circumferential grooves, which quickly and effectively disperse large volumes of water to the outside of the tyre. The water is transported to these grooves by smaller grooves located on the inside shoulders of the tyre. To increase protection against aquaplaning, the tyre also has considerable grooves on the outside. The tyre's resistance to skidding and thus its shorter braking distances on wet surfaces are possible thanks to its special Shark Skin technology, inspired by nature. This innovative approach can be seen on the tyre's surface, which has been reinforced using lots of different sipes. The shape of these elements and their arrangement is reminiscent of a shark's skin. This solution improves the tyre's performance when driving in rain.
This means that all of the tyre's elements guarantee a safe driving experience in the conditions that give drivers most cause for concern: rain. The model also offers other benefits. The Uniroyal RainExpert 3 is one of the best tyres in its category, which is why you can rest assured that it will also meet your expectations on dry surfaces. Looking for a high level of driver comfort? This is also a characteristic feature of this innovative tyre. The manufacturer has striven to attain the best distribution of stiffness in the tyre blocks in order to improve the tyre's performance on dry surfaces, reduce rolling resistance, limit noise levels and reduce wear. This solution gives visible effects for everyday driving.
Uniroyal aims to ensure driver safety for the entire lifetime of the tyre. The tyre surface is therefore fitted with atyre wear indicator. At the relevant moment it shows the driver that the tyre needs replacing as the tread has reached a level of wear that does not ensure appropriate safety on the road.
Uniroyal is a tyre manufacturer with an excellent reputation amongst drivers looking for a model that offers proven optimal grip on wet surfaces. The results of professional tests of the tyres and the opinion of drivers since the launch of Uniroyal's first rain tyre are proof that the brand's models are the best solution for driving in rainy conditions. Uniroyal's prestige as a brand is also down to the fact that the company belongs to one of the largest tyre groups in the world - the German group Continental.
