The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
Hankook Winter i*cept RS2 W452 is an enhanced version of the popular model i* cept RS W442. This model is an excellent solution for navigating winter roads, as it provides good handling on snow, mud and wet roads. This model not only performs during typical urban driving, but also on longer and more demanding routes too.
Hankook Winter i*cept RS2 W452 uses wide, transverse grooves for traction on wet roads and for safe handling. The oblique grooves that disperse water from under the tread minimize the risk of aquaplaning. An optimized tread profile ensures stability and traction on wet roads, so you can enjoy a safe ride even in adverse weather conditions.
Hankook Winter i*cept RS2 W452 is constructed with a directional tread and this is equipped with an increased number of sipes that "bite" into the snow and provide optimal traction. As compared to its predecessor, the length and the area of the grooves have been increased. Furthermore, this ensures that traction is improved on snow and optimizes the road contact area.
The Hankook Winter i*cept RS2 W452 build material ensures better manoeuvrability and a quick response to commands from the steering wheel. The new mix also has an increased contact area with the road, is very functional at low temperatures, especially on wet, cold surfaces. Furthermore, this tyre performs very well on dry roads. The construction of the tyre and the strengthening of the side walls optimize torsional forces which ensures an immediate response to a given manoeuvre. The modern construction of the tread and the use of highest quality materials make the braking distance shortened as well.
