In order to achieve our vision, “Contribute to Advancement in Driving,” we are constantly refining our designs to include future-oriented dynamism and refinement.
Hankook Tire's Project with University of Cincinnati
A Hankook Tire-University of Cincinnati joint project under the theme ‘new tires for the future’
Revolution of Sport tire
The tilting system which works through the partitioned tires with automatic control suspension maximizes the tread area of each partitioned tire. Also lowers car body by tilting the shaft when cornering. Delivers excellent grip and confident cornering.
High speed through maximum grip on straightaway.
Resilient polyurethane airless tire to prevent blowout .
Three discrete motors
Adjusts each tire’s speed when cornering.
Maximized contact ratio and dispersion of surface tension by tilting system provides dynamic but stable cornering.
Motiv is the most flexible tire to run in extreme conditions and blowouts are not a concern.
Flexible polyurethane blocks move separately according to surface shape.
Tilting Center Hub
Provides ultimate grip by flexible chamber and expanding tread.
The smartest hybrid tire
eMembrance provides not only fuel efficiency but also excellent grip for high speed.
Less road contact reduces rolling resistance and uses less energy.
Maximum road contact through shape memory alloy provides excellent grip and sport performance.
Intelligent future tire
MAG-TRAC is a smart tire that breaks the frame of a tire.
Empty space through magnetic fields allows cars to move comfortably and quietly.
Repulsive forces between same poles make it stand comfortably.
Opposite poles by instant current makes it roll.
