Nexen N Blue 4Season car tyres are the result of many years of work of engineers of the famous Korean manufacturer. The tyres were presented to the general public in 2016, at the Reifen exhibition. The rubber is designed for use in medium or compact passenger cars. The main feature of rubber is its all-season specialization of the product, which gives the same high performance throughout almost the entyre year.
The tread pattern of Nexen N Blue 4Season
In order to provide the car with the highest adhesion and braking performance, an innovative tread was manufactured. In developing the tread, a unique computer simulation method was used, which made it possible to calculate even the smallest moments. The work surface has a symmetrical directional V-shaped design with many tubules and lamellas. Such a pattern grip the road with confidence, while self-locking three-dimensional lamellas perfectly perform the function of grip on the surface, especially it is noticeable on an icy road. Such feature makes Nexen-Roadstone N Blue 4Season rubber somewhat similar to the winter friction model.
The peculiarity of the tyre design is a central rib, located along the entyre length of the rubber and has a continuous structure. This rib has a higher stiffness, which makes straight-line movement more stable, and steering commands are much more sensitive. Besides that, it is worth mentioning a rather powerful shoulder area. Shoulder structure has an optimized look, which gives stability when performing various maneuvers, be it sharp turns or overtaking. Such arrangement of rubber elements guarantees safety and even wear. Nexen’s products are famous for their durability, and considering that this is a painful issue for any all-season tyre, this fact makes tyres an excellent solution for every car owner.
Drainage of excess water or snow is due to the many grooves, located at an optimal angle. These grooves go from the central rib to the shoulder area of the tyre, forming a well-known to many people pattern “herringbone”. This design contributes to the effective drainage and ensures that there is no hydroplaning or unwanted sliding on the snow.
Rubber composition of Nexen N Blue 4Season car tyre
The tyre composition is designed to ensure that all features necessary for safe movement are maintained throughout the life of the tyre. The composition contains high quality synthetic rubber, silicic acid and various oils. This composition guarantees resistance to a variety of temperature fluctuations, increases resistance to wear and makes rolling resistance minimal. Therefore, Nexen N Blue 4Season can be called quite economical.
