2020 Cold Climate Compound Description from Heidenau USA:
"This coming January 2020 we will be introducing a new compound for the K60 Scout 150/70 B 17, the Cold Climate Compound. Gaining a reputation as the tire of choice among world travelers and weekend warriors, The K60 Scout is known for dependability and longevity; but some have not always been satisfied with the traction in cold, wet conditions. Specifically, the 150/70 B 17. To address this Heidenau has created a compound formulated to deliver similar performance in colder conditions. Warm weather riders might see a reduction in mileage compared to what they are used to with a Scout in return for an increase in street traction. Colder climates will find a great tire that preforms dependably wet or dry and delivers the value and performance they expect."
