Fashioned after the pattern of a polar bear’s footprint, the Winter I*cept evo’s excellent grip function maximises snow, wet and dry performance. The use of an advanced new silica compound, 3D kerfs and asymmetrical patterning offers increased winter tyre performance suitable for luxury premium and sports sedans.
Three longitudinal grooves Improved braking and handling performance by adopting 3D sipes that prevent sliding on ice and snow.
Auxiliary internal sipes Maximises performance on ice and snow.
Inside-to-outside groove design Delivers a whole new level of stylistic perfection, with its optimised pitch design guaranteeing optimal driving experience.
HRS - Hankook Runflat System
The Run-flat tire allows a car to travel at a speed of up to 80 kmp/h, even after losing internal air pressure due to tire damage(i.e. flat tire). The installation of a TPMS(Tire Pressure Monitoring System) to sense changes in tire pressure is highly recommended to allow drivers to take appropriate measures in emergency situations.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
