Hankook iPike RW11 is designed for great traction on ice and snow, even without studs. A multitude of available sipes and large voids in the tread ensures that you will get good grip, regardless of conditions. Circumferential grooves in the tread clear out snow and water from the road surface while sharp and precisely designed tread blocks carve their way through the ice and snow to grab the best available traction. Sipes are present throughout every surface to add even more biting edges for traction. A computer optimized design ensures that the greatest amount of tread can be in contact with the road surface as possible, increasing traction and durability. A specially formulated tread compound allows the tire to remain flexible and soft even in the harshest of winters, and a soft additional layer of rubber allows the tire to soak up road noise, even when riding with studs.
