The Kinergy ST is Hankook’s Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of family sedans, crossovers, coupes and minivans who want a balanced blend of performance combined with long tread life. The Kinergy ST was designed to deliver a smooth and quiet ride along with confident traction in dry, wet and wintry conditions, even light snow.
Utilizing an abrasion-resistant all-season compound provides durability, and the symmetric pattern of the Kinergy ST allows for easy rotation patterns to resist irregular wear and prolong tire life. A coupled center rib and tie bars in the outboard grooves help stabilize the tread for enhanced rigidity and responsive handling. The optimized pitch sequence is designed to reduce tread noise, and the independent tread blocks and sipes create multiple biting edges for traction in slippery conditions. Open shoulder slots and deep, circumferential grooves help evacuate water from the contact patch for hydroplaning resistance, and wide, lateral notches combine with the optimized sipes to provide wet braking performance and light snow traction.
Internal construction of the Kinergy ST consists of a two-ply, polyester casing to aid ride comfort and durability, with two wide, steel belts stabilizing the tread. A full-width, nylon cap ply provides high-speed capability. High-stiffness bead filler delivers sharp steering response, and the strong, jointless bead wire enhances uniformity for a smooth ride.
