Winter i*cept RS2 (W452)

  • Winter

Optimized pattern design for an excellent snow performance.

The Winter i*cept RS2 was specially designed for road conditions in western and central Europe. Thanks to the optimized tyre contour and the three-dimensional block edges, the tyre impresses with a safe traction and braking performance on snow. In addition, the interaction of the longitudinal and lateral grooves ensures optimum displacement of water and slush, thus minimizing the risk of aquaplaning.

  • Performance

      Designed as a general guideline to compare among the internal Hankook products.

Driving Style

Snow Ice


Tire Pattern

  • Aqua slush edge grooves

    - Compared to the exisiting product a lateral groove focused design provides maximized lateral grip.
    - Prevents hydroplaning through effectively pushing out water in to the side direction on wet roads through an optimized profile and an effective lateral groove form.

  • Ice grip slits

    Provides improved cornering performance with the internal sub-grooves.

  • Grip claw technology

    Improves snow traction by applying sharp 3D edge.

  • 3D winter sipe

    Ensures optimal winter performance and enhanced driving stability by minimizing block movement on wet and snowy roads.
