Tire maker Hankook Tire added a new ultra-high-performance all-season tire designed for SUVs to its comprehensive Ventus product line. 

The Ventus S1 evo Z AS X provides ultimate handling at high speeds, excellent traction in all-season conditions, and uncompromised comfort for luxury SUVs. 

Aramid Hybrid Reinforcement: ultimate handling in high-speed conditions

Designed to meet the demands of SUVs in every season, the Ventus S1 evo Z AS X features enhanced rigidity and traction to provide better grip performance for maximum road contact in dry, wet and light snow conditions. Created with motorsport technology, improved handling at high speeds is possible with a reinforcement belt mixed with Aramid fibre. The most advanced fibre available, Aramid is four to five times stronger than steel and heat resistant, enabling improved steering performance and an optimized shape during high-speed driving. 

“The application of motorsport technology to the development of our new Ventus tire is an exciting one for the market and drivers alike,” said Rob Williams, President, Hankook Tire America Corp. “The Ventus S1 evo Z AS X delivers in all road conditions with improved grip and low noise for the ultimate in comfort and performance, even at high speeds. As we continue to look for new and innovative approaches to tire design, the Ventus S1 evo Z AS X is a perfect example of how we can continue to optimize high-performance driving benchmarks.”

Additional benefits of the new tire include bevelled edges that minimize impact between tread blocks for a quieter and more comfortable ride. 

Further, lateral grooves are designed to be narrower on the inside and wider on the outside to maximize drainage performance, prevent hydroplaning on wet roads, and provide overall better grip in all seasons.


The Hankook Ventus S1 evo Z AS X is available now in nine sizes ranging from 18 to 22 inches, with 10 additional sizes to come later in 2023.
