Hankook Tire & Technology-Tires-Winter I Cept-Winter I Cept IZ2-W616-Optimized directional pattern design for maximum studless safety even in the harshest winter conditions

Optimized pattern design
for improved ice and snow performance

Increased pitch numbers

Bites into the snow improving the traction performance of the tires.

  • Conventional
  • Winter I*Cept IZ²

Increased groove edge length

Maximizes the effect of the sipe edge.
· Lateral groove edge length: 15% increased
· Longitudinal groove edge length: 23% increased

Optimized pattern design for improved ice and snow performance

Ice and snow performance

Ice-grip slits

Angled sharp-edge slits improve braking grip in ice and snow.

'Z' Grip shoulder block

The ‘Z’ grip shoulder block disperses pressure equally on the shoulders edges.

3-Dimensional Sipe

The 3-Dimensional Sipe block provides superior control stability and minimizes block movement in all driving conditions.

Ice and snow performance

Snow and wet performance

Spiral boosters

Efficient structure drains snow and water, ensuring maximized ice braking and enhanced acceleration.

Grip in step

Prevents snow accumulating while braking or accelerating on ice.

Aqua edge grooves

Directional V-shape design prevents hydro-planning by pushing water out effectively.

Zigzag traction

Improves snow traction and provides excellent braking and handling performance on ice.

  • Dry handling performance

    Rainforced sidewall and bead section improves cornering grip and handling performance.

    Rainforced sidewall and bead section improves cornering grip and handling performance.

  • Footshape

    Footprint pressure is equally applied compared with conventional tires. This increases the braking and traction performance on icy roads.

    Footprint pressure is equally applied compared with conventional tires. This increases the braking and traction performance on icy roads.

Compound

Ice-philic technology

Better grip on icy and snowy roads. Optimized soft compound maximizes contact area.

Silica distribution

Silica particles are evenly distributed to prevent the rubber compound becoming stiff in cold conditions.

Lower Tg control

Tg compound improves braking performance and provides better grip in the snow by increasing the contact area.
