Hankook Tire’s Award-winning Winter i*cept evo3 is now here in Canada to help keep Canadians safe this winter.
The Winter i*cept evo3 provides reliable handling and safety for everyday use in the winter.
Hankook tire expanded its tire range in Canada with the release of the Winter i*cept evo3. The Winter i*cept evo3 is a multi-award-winning tire. It has been praised for its excellent performance in hazardous road conditions–with dynamic handling and short braking distances.
Now available in Canada, the Winter i*cept evo3 tire is designed for a variety of vehicles ranging from upper mid-size cars to sports cars and luxury sedans. The unidirectional tread featuring gull wing shapes helps with the tire’s overall traction and braking performance to deliver safety while driving in Canadian winters.
“Canadian winter road conditions can be unpredictable. It’s important drivers feel safe and in control when driving,” says Sungil Jun, President, Hankook Tire Canada.
“The award-winning Winter i*cept evo3 gives Canadian drivers piece of mind knowing their tires have reliable handling in all road conditions including snow and slush.”
The tire features a high strength steel belt wire to increase the tread stiffness and keep stability when operating at high speeds. Customer safety is the number one priority. When the tire was designed, it was important that the tire effectively reduce the risk of hydroplaning–an issue many Canadians’ experience in the late winter and early spring months.
The unique tread featuring a V-shaped pattern effectively helps to distribute water to the sides, while the water pipe kerf placed inside the shoulder block improves performance on wet surfaces by transporting water out of the main grooves. Compared to the Winter i*cept evo2, the lateral grooves are 20% wider increasing the water displacement capabilities.
The tire makeup includes high-grip silica, a natural compound, which contributes to a superb braking performance–particularly on wet or slush-covered roads.
The Hankook Winter i*cept evo3 is available at select retailers across Canada.
