Hankook Tire to equip Porsche Cayenne with its UHP (Ultra-High-Performance) flagship tire, the Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV. The tire will comes as original equipment in the 21-inch dimension, among others.
“Porsche stands for particularly powerful sports cars with a high utility value at the same time. However, this also makes tire development very complex,” says Han-Jun Kim, President of Hankook Tire Europe. “We are therefore very pleased with this original equipment as it impressively demonstrates the performance of our products.”
“Due to the vehicle load in combination with sporty drivability, low rolling resistance and high load capacity, it was very challenging to develop the tire design for the Porsche Cayenne,” explains Dipl.-Ing. Klaus Krause, Head of the European Research and Development Centre at Hankook Tire. “The new Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV meets these requirements very well in both wet and dry conditions.”
The latest edition of this high-end tire offers excellent drivability and steering precision in addition to high wet grip and low rolling resistance. In addition to the sporty drivability, the new Hankook tread also offers a number of new features that optimize its environmental properties (rolling resistance and durability). The Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV uses a new generation of innovative materials based on high-performance natural resins in the tread compound
