Unexpected winter weather can produce driving circumstances demanding far more traction than traditional tires -- or even snow treads -- can produce. But tire chains are bulky to store and can be difficult to place on in cold, snowy weather. Now there is an simple and easy-to-use alternative to chains: Created in Norway, AutoSock is a new and innovative lightweight fabric-based, temporary traction aid for vehicles and trucks that is easy to mount and gets a grip on slippery surfaces as snow and ice. AutoSock, a high-technologies textile tire covering, utilizes specially patterned fibers that optimize grip on slick surfaces by managing the thin layer of water on top of ice and snow. By means of its weaving pattern and thousands of small fibers AutoSock clings to snow and ice, escalating car traction, enhancing safety and adding to driver self-confidence.
With AutoSock, you will not expertise the rattles and bumpy ride related with tire chains, and it is authorized for speeds up to 30 mph. AutoSock is quick to install following these simple methods: Stop the vehicle and apply the emergency brake, fit AutoSock to the drive wheels of the vehicle, beginning at the top of the tire and operating downwards. Then, stretch the elastic band over the top rated of the tire to the inside of the tire, tighten the crossing strap, and move the vehicle roughly three feet and pull the remainder of the AutoSock into position. AutoSock automatically self-centers when you start driving. When you’ re back on snow-cost-free roads, slip the AutoSock off and slip it back into the included storage bag.
After use, AutoSock will need to be put back in the storage bag till the destination is reached. Then they can be machine-washed and place back in the bag, ready to go for the next snow or ice storm. Note: AutoSock is not meant for severe snow conditions, and cannot be substituted for chains for travel via mountain passes. The High Efficiency AutoSock accommodates overall performance tire sizes (generally OEM sizes for sports automobiles, SUVs, luxury cars, or +1/+two wheel and tire aftermarket setups). It is also secure on aftermarket wheels and can be utilised with electronic traction manage systems and ABS. For common tires, attempt AutoSock Standard.
