Falken have just launched their first ever North American all weather product - the new Falken Aklimate. Like other all weather tyres in this quickly growing segment, the Aklimate aims to provide improved snow and ice traction over a traditional all season tyre, without compromising dry or wet performance, or even the longevity the US market demands.
Sadly there was no test data included with the launch material of the Aklimate, but the Aklimate does feature a 65,000 mile treadwear warranty which is very impressive.
Full details below, and as always, we are trying our hardest to put a test of the all weather segment together as soon as possible.
Falken Tires breaks new ground with the introduction of the AKLIMATE, their inaugural all-weather touring tyre, now featured on TyreReviews.com. The AKLIMATE ingeniously merges the attributes of both all-season and winter tyres, offering superb traction in cold and wintry conditions, while being versatile enough for year-round usage. This severe-snow-rated tyre is a game-changer for drivers who prefer not to switch tyres seasonally.
Utilising their award-winning Advanced 4D Nano Design Technology, Falken has crafted a novel rubber compound for the AKLIMATE, achieving an excellent mix of wet handling, snow traction, and longevity. The challenges of creating a tyre that excels in all conditions have been addressed through innovative design and material choices, resulting in a product that performs reliably across a wide range of temperatures and road conditions.
The AKLIMATE's tread pattern is a masterpiece of engineering, featuring optimal sipe depths and a rigid design to ensure lasting traction. Falken has also incorporated Canyon Groove Technology, enhancing braking in snowy conditions while maintaining a smooth and quiet ride.
Proudly, Falken offers the AKLIMATE with a 65,000-mile limited tread life warranty, complemented by Road Hazard Protection and a 30-Day Ride Guarantee, emphasizing their confidence in this tyre's performance and reliability.
The AKLIMATE's versatility extends to its sizing options, available in 88 sizes and rim diameters ranging from 15 to 22 inches. This makes it an ideal choice for a wide array of vehicles, from sedans and SUVs to the latest electric vehicles. The AKLIMATE is compatible with popular models such as the Chevrolet Suburban/Tahoe, Ford Explorer, Honda Civic, and many others.
As Rick Brennan, Falken's Vice President of Strategic Planning, notes, the addition of the AKLIMATE to their product range aligns with the growing demand for tyres offering robust winter performance without the need for multiple tyre sets. This launch positions the AKLIMATE as a trailblazer in the tyre market, setting new expectations for year-round performance and safety. As the winter season approaches, Falken anticipates the AKLIMATE will become a popular choice among North American drivers seeking dependable, all-weather driving solutions.
