Hankook Goes Global With New Bus And Coach Tyre

Hankook Tire has announced the launch of its new all-season bus & coach tire, Smart Touring AL22.

After its launch in Europe, North America and the Middle East, Hankook is now introducing the Smart Touring AL22 in the Asian market.

Specifically designed for bus & coach applications, the Smart Touring AL22 provides exceptional comfort and maximum mileage that makes it a perfect choice for long-haul travel, said Hankook in a release.

According to the company, the Smart Touring AL22 features an intricate combination of zig-zag and straight-groove tread patterns to ensure excellent straight-line driving performance at all times.  Its tread also features an optimized central rib for low rolling resistance and handling stability to ensure maximum mileage and handling performance.

Moreover, the pattern is structurally arranged in a way that significantly reduces rolling noise, resulting in outstanding ride comfort. It has even acquired the highest grade in the PBN (pass-by noise) level based on the European regulations, added the company.

Tyre maker said that fuel savings has been achieved by the tread compound, a black carbon compound in a polymeric structure that offers enhanced abrasion resistance. Furthermore, a special Multi-3D Kerf guarantees both good traction and an outstanding braking response at high speeds.

“The characteristics of the Smart Touring AL22 not only allow maximum travel comfort for passengers, they also maximize driving and handling comfort for the driver,” says Sooil Lee, President and CEO of Hankook Tire & Technology. “We aim to target the global bus tire market with our AL22 for regional and long-distance travel, AU04 for short distance and downtown drive, and AU06 for electric bus market.”
