Hankook Winter i*cept iZ2 W616
The new and improved studless winter performance tire
The optimized directional pattern design of the Winter i*cept iZ2 ensures maximum studless safety on wet and icy roads. The improved Winter i*cept iZ2 features zigzag traction for improved snow traction with excellent braking and handling on ice allowing you to drive with confidence in extreme winter conditions.
Increased pitch numbers
Bites into the snow improving the traction performance of the tires.
Reinforced center block provides better handling performance (reinforcement of rib block stiffness).
‘Z’ grip shoulder block
The ‘Z’ grip shoulder block disperses pressure equally on the shoulders edges. Z Grip: Z shape 3D structure equally distributes the pressure, making the ideal contact shape. The robust block edge enhances the handling performance on the snow.
Improves snow traction and provides excellent braking and handling performance on ice.
Increased groove edge length
Maximizes the effect of the sipe edge
Lateral groove edge length: 15% increased
Longitudinal groove edge length: 23% increased
V-shape offers better drainage.
The 3D sipe block provides superior control stability and minimizes block movement in all driving conditions.
High grip silica compound
Improved snow / wet traction and lowered rolling resistance.
Jointless full cover reinforced belt
Ideal tread strength.
Wide steel belt layer
Ensures optimal tread stiffness and improves handling performance.
Equilibrium polyester carcass line
Enhanced sidewall stiffness and durability.
Adoption of high-hardness bead filler
Improves handling and steering response.
Ultra high strength bead wire
Improves uniformity and durability of the bead position.
