The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
The Hankook Winter i*cept LV RW12 is a mid-range tyre for the winter season for light commercial vehicles. Compared to its predecessor, the acclaimed Hankook RW06, it improves all key elements for the safety of travellers. Extended tread design, numerous edges and sipes ensure precise handling and stable driving during the winter season.
The special task tread
The symmetrical tread is designed for operation under heavy loads. Precisely arranged blocks and grooves work well in harsh weather conditions, draining water and mud efficiently. A wide central groove with chamfered edges, which increases the contact area between the tyre and the road, ensures precise manoeuvring and efficient braking.
The winter performance of the tyre is the result of a number of modern solutions:
Snow grip is guaranteed by two different sipes - the shoulder notches on the tyre ensure good handling characteristics and the straight sipes in the middle of the tread improve the acceleration of the car in snow.
An additional edge on the shoulder of the tyre helps maintain a stable driving track on a snow-covered road, facilitates manoeuvring and prevents skidding.
Wide grooves in the side zones guarantee better traction on snow-covered and icy roads.
LCVs’ tyres must offer exceptional durability in addition to precise handling and safety in harsh conditions. This is what Hankook Winter i*cept LV RW12 give you.
Thanks to an innovative, long-life filler, the sidewalls of the tyre are better protected against impact and an additional groove on the shoulders prevents uneven wear of the tread. Add to that a reinforced belt and a modern, long-life rubber compound and you get a very long mileage model.
