Tyre Pattern

  • Improved Handling in Winter Conditions
    : EV Contour Technology

    Tyre stiffness is essential to be improved to bear the weight of electric vehicles. Hankook's EV Contour Technology increases cornering stiffness by 7% to advance electric vehicle handling performance.

  • Advanced Handling in Winter Conditions
    : Diversified Sipes

    The tread pattern is designed for even rigidity by applying 2D sipes in the centre, and 3D sipes in the surrounding blocks. This allows the Winter i*cept iON (and X) to provide superior handling on all types of winter road surfaces.

  • Improved Wet Grip
    : Water Pipe Kerf

    Water pipe kerfs are placed inside the shoulder blocks for water drainage from the main groove, which maximises grip on wet roads.

  • Extended Range
    : Optimised Curing

    The Winter i*cept iON (and X) achieved a decent grade in LRR performance by applying an advanced compound and Hankook tyre’s optimised curing technology which improves all parts of the tyre equally.

  • Extended Range
    : Aerodynamic Profile

    The aerodynamic profile of the Winter i*cept iON (and X) reduces air/rolling resistance as well as noise.

  • Noise Proof Technology
    : Knurling Technology

    The knurled portion in the longitudinal groove reduces pipe resonance noise from the main groove of the tyre. The knurled portion is provided to reduce noise by a narrow air path formed when the groove portion and the ground come into contact.

  • Noise Proof Technology
    : Shifting V-shaped Pattern

    The Winter i*cept iON (and X)'s V-shaped pattern spreads the road noise by the alternatively shifting inner and outer blocks during contact with the road.

  • Noise Proof Technology
    : Noise Absorbing Material

    By applying a noise absorbing material inside, cavity noise is decreased up to 9dB.


Tyre Structure

EVolution Compound

Composed with high-concentration silica and eco-friendly materials, provides satisfactory mileage and further reduces rolling resistance without compromising performance on snow.

Reinforcement Belt

Reinforced belts are applied to improve endurance for high levels of initial power and acceleration.

High Strength Steel Belt

High strength steel belts are applied to absorb impact and to improve durability and comfort.

Mono Layer Structure of Fibre Stiffener

A mono layer of fibre stiffener with super turn up structure is applied to reduce rolling resistance and to improve sidewall stability.

Folded Edge Tape

Folded edge tapes are placed between belts for additional durability.

Jointless Bead Wire

Jointless bead wires help the tyre to remain safely attached to the wheel with increased binding force.
