Because of the spectacular 'shark skin technology' and the fantastic developments that the Continental group is implementing with their UNIROYAL brand, in particular by marketing the RainSport 5 tire series, we have doubted whether we would put UNIROYAL with the premium brands or not. Formally speaking, it is still a "quality" brand. We put it in this category with great conviction in a marked first place.
Oscar Englebert opened a shop in rubber products in Liège (Belgium) in 1868. Oscar was way ahead of his time, he understood the potential of that water resistant product. Under the leadership of Oscar's son, the company grew and soon they would build a factory for the production of all kinds of water-resistant material. Swimming caps, gloves, raincoats, too many to mention. Oscar Englebert Junior was an innovative businessman. He started experimenting with tires for bicycles and horse carts. He was fascinated by the water-draining capabilities of rubber.
After the success of the bicycle tires, the factory expanded its production to car tires, creating the first tire factory in the Benelux, and one of the first in Europe. Oscar also produced racing tires and his "Englebert Tires were the first tires to complete the entire race of the Le Mans hour without being replaced. The victory in this renowned car race gave the factory a boost.
Just before the First World War, Englebert developed the zig-zag pattern. This helped prevent slipping and became very popular. Its production could no longer be kept up to date. In the years of the last century, the collaboration with US-Rubber created a new name: Uniroyal.
The water-repellent properties of rubber continued to inspire them. Uniroyal is known today as "the rain tire". Today Uniroyal is part of the Continental group. This reinforces technological development. Uniroyal developed the SST, the "Shark Skin Technology". A shark moves effortlessly through the water thanks to its specially formulated skin. A shark appears wet and slippery, but the tiny scales bite. That's what a Uniroyal car tire mimics on the road. They move like a shark. Quiet quickly and efficiently. This technology has won prestigious design awards, including the RedDot Award.
