In sudden slippery conditions, the sock is easy to mount on the wheel, providing increased friction on snow and ice. It takes up little storage space and can be reused.
The snow sock is made of a high-tech fibre material, the fibres of which are roughened during use in order to provide optimal grip. The material is both strong and resilient to further increase the wheel's contact area with hard snow and ice.
The snow sock is ordered in pairs and is used on the two driving wheels. It can be used on both summer and winter tyres, with or without studs. The sock is also suitable for cars with narrow wheel housings and it does not damage the wheel rims.
