The superb wet and dry handling of the Ventus V4 ES is competitive with some of the best UHP summer tires available, but the Ventus V4 ES also gets twice the winter performance of the typical summer UHP tire. The best technological advances in profile design, construction, tread pattern and tread compound have been applied together in one state-of-the-art tire. The result is a sophisticated tire that provides excellent handling in all weather conditions, along with an advanced, cutting-edge appearance.
The Hankook Ventus series represents a new concept in high performance tires to deliver exceptional control, braking, and comfort. The Ventus V4 ES is engineered to provide superior handling and feedback during extreme driving conditions. Enjoy ultra-high performance with the benefit of all-season driving ability. State-of-the-art engineering, tread compound, and profile design allow the Ventus V4 ES to offer excellent wet and dry handling with twice the all-season performance of a typical summer UHP tire.
Kerfs have been applied to the entire part of the tread at an appropriate density, reinforcing winter traction without hampering wet and dry threshold handling and preventing rapid central wear.
Ride and Noise
Improved stopping distance and acceleration performance and reduced pattern noise, thanks to the stability provided by the firm central rib and the long central interlock button.
Wet and Dry Handling
By adding side slots that continuously connect to the wide, circumferential grooves, the tire realizes the waterway function at the center of the contact patch and strengthens the controlling power even in wet conditions.
The optimal design of the Ventus V4 ES with enlarged main grooves facilitates water drainage to minimize hydroplaning and keep you on the road.
Controlled Footprint Shape
Iterative Finite Element Analysis optimization of profile and construction has resulted in a consistent footprint leading edge shape throughout the load range. This resutls in a uniform wear through a range of driving conditions, and predictable transient handling characteristics for improved road feel. High contact pressure areas are reduced, which minimize noise and resist irregular wear.
