Hankook Kinergy Eco2 (K435)
The Hankook Kinergy Eco2 (K435) is the latest summer tyre in the company’s popular Kinergy Eco range.
Developed for small and mid-sized vehicles, the Kinergy Eco2 (K435) focuses on providing safety, increased comfort and fuel efficiency.
The Kinergy Eco2 (K435) is made of a state-of-the-art, high grip silica compound. It offers increased traction in the wet and dry, as well as improved wear life.
In addition to this, the tyre boasts a number of Hankook's key technological features, including a jointless full-cover reinforcement belt, lightweight rayon casing and high stiffness bead filler. These features create a better handling and steering response, strengthen the tread and enhance durability.
The Kinergy Eco2 (K435) performs well in wet conditions thanks to a number of clever characteristics. The tread design features wide lateral grooves in the inside blocks, as well as three wider-than-average circumferential grooves. The combination of these carefully designed grooves with Aqua Turbine Technology allows for maximum water evacuation. This consequently leads to better traction in the wet and a reduced risk of aquaplaning.
What's more, the asymmetric pattern design enhances outside stiffness for better dry handling and performance, and the pitch sequence has been optimised to reduce tyre noise.
