Perfect alternative to snow chains: snow socks
Winter is coming and with it ice, snow and poor visibility. Now it's high time to prepare the car for the cold season. That means changing the tires, checking the coolant and battery, greasing the door rubbers and much more. But even the most thoroughly prepared vehicle can reach its limits on snow-slicked roads. That's when it's a good idea to have a set of snow socks with you.
What are snow socks?
Snow socks perform the same function as traditional snow chains. They give the tire an extra grip that keeps it moving on any surface. Where even the best winter tire has to give up, the snow sock can get the car moving again. In doing so, they have enormous advantages to offer over the heavy and cumbersome snow chains.
Advantages of snow socks over snow chains
Snow socks are much lighter and more compact than the heavy snow chains. They come in a convenient carrying case. This can be easily stored even in the smallest car. Thus, these approach aids can be carried all year round. So you always have them with you. Their assembly is very easy. The included gloves keep your hands warm and clean. These approach aids are lightweight and absolutely rustproof. Their plastic is very durable. Once purchased, they are ready for use for many winters. The robust textile fabric provides the optimal tire protection. Aluminum rims do not scratch and hubcaps remain intact. Snow chains can't offer that.
Limit of the snow sock
A snow sock is not a substitute for proper winter tires. It serves just like the snow chain, only as an approach aid or for short-term use on particularly heavily snow-covered or icy roads. However, these aids may be legally operated up to a speed of 30-40 km/h. This will allow you to make good progress even on the most difficult road.
Other features of the snow sock
With this total package of optimized product features, the snow sock is the ideal addition for the winter season:
- very easy mounting even for inexperienced drivers
- first-class handling on icy roads
- firm fit due to optimized lacing.
In addition, snow socks are washable. After use, they can be completely cleaned again in a standard washing machine and made fit for the next use.
For the warm season, snow socks are also suitable as practical car wheel bags. They protect the tire from dirt and damage during storage. We recommend washing the snow sock used as a car wheel bag after mounting the winter tires. This way they are perfectly prepared for the winter season.
