König XB-16 is the entry level snow chain for Commercial Vehicles and Vans.
König XB-16 features a ground-up fitting system: thanks to the flexible cable sliding on the ground behind the wheel, all the chain parts get connected without moving the vehicle.
Once the snow chain is mounted on the wheel, after some low speed driving, the XB-16 requires the user to stop to re-tighten the chain properly.
König XB-16 is certified according to O-Norm V5117, O-Norm V5119, UNI 11313 and EN 16662-1 thus fulfilling all Winter Equipment legal requirement.
