The OBSERVE GARIT KX is a high performance, winter, passenger vehicle tire designed for traction in harsh winter conditions. It is studless, which allows for driving on any surface. The KX is constructed from a high silica content compound with Microbit technology. It has high-density wavy sipes, saw-toothed blocks, and carries the Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.
Benefits include enhanced braking and grip on wet roads and improved traction in cold temperatures. The Microbit enhancements cut through layers of thin water on ice for greater performance and dig into ice for more traction improvement.

Each one has a multi-wave pattern, with a higher sipe density on the inside tread and a lower sipe density on the outside. The tread itself has a combination of snow claws and slush grooves. The CUV also carries the 3PMSF symbol, so it is rated for use in severe snow.
