Singapore’s first Hankook Masters Outlet is located at Autoworld Care, 9A Lok Yang Way. The Hankook Masters Programme is designed to create a consistent retail expression to provide a unified brand experience to consumers. More than just a branding, the programme includes support measures to the tyre dealers and training for the tyre technicians.
Hankook also launched the latest flagship max performance tyre in Singapore, the Ventus S1 evo3 (K127). Hankook claims that the new tyre performs better on both wet and dry roads, with new high-performance natural resins in the tread compound.
The tyre is also said to maintain the high grip level across a significantly larger range of temperatures, with the full-silica tread compound and a special mixing technology for a better distribution of polymers and filler material. Hankook boasts that the new tyre has a clear improvement in brake performance in the wet as well as in reducing rolling resistance.
A new 0-degree cap ply made from aramid composite further reduces the unwanted growth in rolling circumference at high and very high (300 km/h and more) speeds by up to 60 per cent compared with nylon-based fabrics, giving the Ventus S1 evo3 better driving stability and thanks to lower heat generation a longer tyre life.
The cap ply also contributes to an improvement in cornering forces of just over five per cent. ‘Hyper slants’ in the centre tread bar ribs also help to increase the cornering force by enlarging the contact surface under load. With the ‘interlocking groove’ and 4-channel design, Hankook claims that the new tyre is more resistant to aquaplaning, has more wet grip, without sacrificing dry performance.
