2015 Hankook Tire Design Innovation in collaboration with Vibram
Hankook Tire and Vibram, the two brands which lead their respective markets, have created a uniquely enjoyable driving experience as a result of this collaboration. Vibram is also the world’s number one outsole brand from Italy.
The innovative synthesis between Hankook Tire’s technology and Vibram’s unique style has produced a new vision for each brand, under the design theme of “Tyres go fashionable” and “Shoes embrace dynamic high-end technology”.
Off-Road Concept Tyres: DynaMIX & DynaSYNC
These tyres are inspired by the flexible blocks of hiking boot outsole treads and layered structure, allowing flexibility of shoe movement and diversity of style.
The multi-directional geometric 3D design protects the tyre from road shock and increases safety.
The ultra-light 3D cocoon technology is applied to the design of the sidewall, featuring tight-knitted serration and block surfaces at various angles, which also protect the tyre from shock.
The honeycomb-shape layered structure not only prevents drilling caused by pebbles or small rocks on the road, but also absorbs shock from off-road terrain.
Vibram’s iconic design is used to create tread patterns, which allows more traction in mountainous areas.
The colour compound feature enables young drivers to choose the colour of the tyre that matches their vehicle, providing a more enjoyable driving experience.
Vibram Concept Shoes: DynaTREK and DynaSTRYKE BKL
From the inspiration behind the two concept tyres, DynaMIX and DynaSYNC, these shoes attempt to embrace a new concept and function-orientated design that has never been tried before.
This is a new shoe design that conforms to the ergonomics of the foot by optimising the tyre’s functionality on a variety of ground surfaces. Its functional structure and dynamic appearance creates a fashionable look.
