Hankook Ventus S-1 Evo2 K-117 is a medium-class summer tyre intended for passenger cars. The model ensures excellent driving both on dry and wet surfaces, as well as good driver-tyre communication. The tyre features an asymmetrical tread pattern consisting of two independent sections. Each of them is responsible for a different type of performance, so the tyre ensures balanced parameters no matter the weather or type of road. The optimised circumferential grooves guarantee fast water drainage from under the tyre, resulting in the effective drying of the tread. This helps to reduce the risk of aquaplaning and ensures safe and smooth driving.
The engineers who designed Hankook Ventus S-1 Evo2 K-117 took care to give even distribution of pressures acting on the tyre structure. As a result, the tread wears out slowly and evenly which allows the use of the full spectrum of performance during the life of the tyre. Hankook Ventus S-1 Evo2 K-117 was created using a modern rubber compound featuring flexibility in a wide range of temperatures. This increases the tyre-surface contact area, which consequently improves the grip. Apart from its flexibility, the compound features a lower weight, which allowed to reduce rolling resistance. This translated into a decrease in fuel consumption and CO2emissions. Hankook Ventus S-1 Evo2 K-117 meets the expectations of all drivers who want their every-day tyres to perform excellently on any type of surface, to have a long, useful life and also to be reliable.
