The SOLUS KL21 is Kumho’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire developed for the driver of crossovers, sport utility vehicles and prestigious pickups looking for year-round capabilities. Many of the SOLUS KL21 tires meet Kumho’s eco* standard for low rolling resistance that confirms the tire’s contribution to reducing vehicle fuel consumption and emission of CO2 gases. The Solus KL21 is designed to combine ride comfort and low noise with year-round handling and traction, even in light snow.
The SOLUS KL21 uses Kumho’s High Dispersible Silica (HDS) tread compound to reduce rolling resistance and strengthen the rubber to promote even wear. The compound is molded into a symmetric bambooÃ¢ÂÂinspired tread design that provides all-season traction in dry, wet and wintertime conditions.
The tire’s internal structure features twin, high-tensile steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to combine strength and low rolling resistance while a High Intensity Body Ply reduces heat generation and casing energy losses.
*Specific sizes featuring Low Rolling Resistance technology are identified as such on the Sizes tab, as well as on the tire’s Specs tab.
