Hankook to launches premiers at 66th IAA
Hankook will introduce numerous world premieres alongside its current comprehensive portfolio of truck and bus tyres at this year’s 66th IAA for Commercial Vehicles, which will be held from 22nd to 29th September, in Hanover.
The company is expanding its ultra-efficient e-cube Blue trailer tyres to include relevant steering and axle profiles, and for the first time, will be presenting a complete solution for all axle positions in long-haul transport, including A-labels for rolling resistance on all the tyres in the series. As the low-line segment faces increasing requirements, Hankook is also presenting new sizes for steering and drive axles. “The 45 and 50 series from the successful e-cube MAX tyre line have been developed especially for use on mega trucks. This allows fleet owners to exploit the maximum inner loading height of three metres without exceeding the maximum permissible overall height of four metres as permitted by legislation,” said the company.
Furthermore, Hankook has reacted to the increasing importance of long-distance coach travel all over the world by presenting the new SmartTouring tyre, a series which will be premiered at this year’s IAA. The Hankook “Smart” concept is used in several different tyre series to meet a wide range of requirements. Therefore, the technology meets all the key criteria of the truck and bus tyre segment: in addition to safety, it stands for high mileage, a particularly anti chip- and cut tyre compound, retreadability and high traction.
