Kumho I`ZEN KW27 is a high performance winter tyre from our mid-price range and is designed for mid-class and executive cars with high engine power. It optimizes the tyre technology for its price point, and provides great value-for-money. It uses 3d siping to provide the best grip and traction on snow or ice. The sipes flex just before contact with the road is made, and they bite the underlying surface, and allow the tyre to lock onto the surface for a split-second. This helps the ride become more stable.
Kumho I`ZEN KW27 reduces low-rolling resistance by using a next-generation silica compound. This compound ensures that the tyre erodes more slowly, and maintains its spec and performance over the tyre’s lifespan. This improves the mileage from the tyre and even prevents excess emissions being released into the environment, making this an eco-friendly tyre.
Kumho I`ZEN KW27 uses an asymmetric tread profile which effectively removes excess snow and ice in the winter, and provides greater cornering stability on dry roads, by having a large contact area on the sides of the tyres.
Kumho I`ZEN KW27 is thus characterized not only by a favourable price, but also by fuel efficiency. The model is ideal for users who appreciate balanced performance at a reasonable price, and at the same time want to feel the pleasure of driving, regardless of weather conditions and type of surface.
