CHECK­ING THE GRIP OF YOUR TYRES ON SNOW

Alpine News - - News -

When it is safe to do so, at a safe speed, and, make sure that no one is close be­hind you, ap­ply the brakes firmly un­til the wheels lock up and the ABS is ac­ti­vated. Keep the brake pedal pressed down un­til the ve­hi­cle stops com­pletely. This will give you a clear in­di­ca­tion of the grip avail­able at that par­tic­u­lar point in time. You can re­peat this test to con­tin­u­ally mon­i­tor grip in dif­fer­ent con­di­tions.
