Hankook’s Futuristic Tires Win IDEA Award


SEOUL, Aug. 10 (Korea Bizwire)Hankook Tire has won a 2015 International Design Excellence Award for its futuristic tire designs. Three tires developed by Hankook in collaboration with Pforzheim University were designed to provide optimal performance under severe conditions caused by global climate change such as deforestation, heavy snow and rain.

According to Hankook Tire, the Boostrac tire with its flexible tread blocks is excellent for rough terrain, desert or steep mountain roads. The Alpike tire, which has a tire circumference expansion mode, can increase a vehicle’s ground clearance significantly to comfortably handle heavy snow and icy roads. In addition, the HyBlade tire is a perfect solution for heavy rains with waterwheel treads and spokes.
