Hankook’s flagship tyre, the Ventus S1 evo2 will be available in a newly developed SUV version as of spring 2014 in 30 sizes ranging from 17 to 22 inches for these increasingly popular vehicles.

The particularly sophisticated technology of the Ventus S1 evo2 SUV with its multiple tread radius and double-layer rayon carcass provides a maximum tyre contact area under all conditions. The tyre impresses not only with outstanding aquaplaning characteristics but also with optimum road contact for perfect balance under both wet and dry conditions. Driving control and safety at high speeds are also significantly improved. The innovative 3-layer block design with its special staircase arrangement of the outer rib blocks, provides an improved tyre contact area as tyre wear progresses thereby guaranteeing more effective traction performance across the entire life cycle of the tyre.

In order to make the driving experience even more comfortable the tyre is equipped with an aerodynamic shaped wing that further reduces noise and highlights the sports-look of the tyre.
