VENTUS R-S4 HANKOOK TIRES
Concept of design
Geometric Chamfer Design
The edges of all treads are geometrically chamfered to enhance tire durability and prevent tread damage from constant pressure. The weight generated by high-speed driving and emergency braking is maximized by the chamfered design.
Excellent directional pattern technology
Inherited Ventus R-S3 application of directional pattern technology.
Optimized contact ratio per block to maintain optimum block stiffness on straight and circuit tracks
High hardness tread blocks
Widened center block improves steering response The widened center block maintains stable grip on the road and enables responsive steering response
Improve cornering grip.
Two main grooves
Grooved Multi-Angle Technology
Strengthen the tire block hardness to prevent vibration.
Addition of Silica to enhance Wetland Performance
Improve wet grip
Highly dispersed silica
Enhanced wet handling performance with hydrophilic silica.
Application of functional resins to increase compound stiffness and heat release
The resin structure increases the stiffness of the tread compound, which in turn improves dry handling.
Resin structure build
Maximizing Wetland Performance Through Functional Polymers
Optimized silica polymer structure
Compounds that balance wear and low rolling resistance
The application of functional polymers to improve the structure between the hydrophobic polymer and the hydrophilic silica can maximize the wet handling performance.
Improves tire grip by increasing heat release from the tread compound.
Multiple tread radius
4TR System (Multiple tread radius technology)
The Ventus R-S4 features a Quattro tread radius profile that maintains maximum grip at high speeds or tight corners not only on general roads, but also on race tracks.
Apply racing technology to ensure optimum grip
Racing tires are contoured to maintain optimum shoulder grip during acceleration and cornering. At any drive angle and condition, you'll be amazed after cornering.
Uniform Trajectory Technology
Virtual simulation under various conditions of use
Maintains tire track shape and tread pressure even in harsh conditions, improving grip and control performance unlike existing products.
Traction while free rolling
Traction when cornering
Uniform tread temperature during operation
The optimized design improves the overall structure, and the tread of the tire has the best heat dissipation shape for any run. Even on repeated laps, the tread doesn't slip due to heat.
