Kumho’s all-season tyre receives Japanese Good Design Award

Kumho’s latest all-season tyre, the Solus HA31, has been awarded a Japanese Good Design Award. So too has the Kumho Eco Sense SE11 – a pattern specifically designed for environmentally friendly and electric vehicles.

Kumho says the Solus HA31 is the ideal choice for drivers of all sizes of passenger car seeking optimum performance and reliability in all weathers. It features lateral grooves for enhanced wet road performance, honeycomb structure 3D sipes for optimum traction on snowy surfaces, a directional tread pattern with S-SBR technology for an exceptional balance between wet grip, fuel economy and wear rate, and reinforced centre rib and tread blocks for improved braking performance.

HA31 is available in sizes 13 to 17 inch, and a recent addition of eight new fitments in 16 and 17 inch sizes has brought the current total number of options to around 60.

The latest accolades cap a golden period of recognition for Kumho, whose products have recently received tributes from all three of the world’s top design forums – the Red Dot (Germany), iF International Forum Design (Germany) and IDEA (United States) – and won two prizes at the Green Good Design Awards 2016 held in the United States.
