MITA Snow Chains Excel in Official Product Testing
MITA snow chains are a revolutionary snow chain system set to overcome most of the common problems associated with traditional snow chains. MITA chains use a modular 'self assemble' tank-track system that attaches around the vehicle drive wheels.

The chains were tested against regular all season tires in a series of tests to measure acceleration, braking and cornering ability of a vehicle on ice.
Here's the testing: http://www.youtube.com/
TEST 1 ACCELERATION:
All Season Tyres - 14.5 secs | All Season Tyres with MITA Chains - 7.3 secs
TEST 2 EMERGENCY BRAKING:
All Season Tyres - 8.1m | All Season Tyres with MITA Chains - 4.1m
TEST 3 CHICANE CORNERING TEST:
All Season Tyres - Failed - hit two cones + skidded | All Season Tyres with MITA Chains - Pass - no cones hit - good traction/control
The test results show that the MITA chains greatly improve traction on slippery surfaces when compared to all season tyres. The chain system was tested at peak speeds of 10mph - slow compared to average road speeds. From the test results, it is safe to assume that the MITA chains improvement of grip will significantly increase a vehicles handling ability at even greater speeds and the results and benefits would be even more evident. The difference at higher speeds could be life saving especially when on the roads with stopping, acceleration and cornering being vital handling and safety factors when driving.
Overall the MITA chains perform outstandingly. They are simple to fit and remove and the unique design offers immediate benefits to users over traditional chains. The designers have thought about all of the problems caused by traditional chains and provided a world class solution. Well done!
