  • H750
    Kinergy 4S2
    Just one SUV tyre, whatever the weather
    Reliable and safe performance 365 days a year. Unique rubber compound ensures high grip in low temperatures. Short braking distances and impressive handling in summer heat. The use of a special bead filler provides stable handling and steering behaviour, and the wide steel belt layer ensures a long service life in combination with the stable sidewall.

    As an all-weather tyre, the Kinergy 4S 2 is extremely versatile, combining specific summer and winter characteristics of a tyre, without temperature-related drops in performance. It offers high reliability in wet, dry and snowy conditions, which is made possible by the directional tread. The V-shaped interlocking tread blocks ensure sufficient driving stability even in the cold season. They are complemented by extra-wide, two-stage main drainage grooves, allowing water to be optimally drained to the sides even in heavy rain. The drainage system prevents aquaplaning and is also able to drain slush from the tread more effectively than before. These properties are supported by the tread compound, which is made of a high-density silica-polymer composite, this ensures a very good wet grip thanks to a proportion of natural oils and resins.

    Thanks to the snowflake marking (3PMSF), which has been mandatory for winter tyres in Europe since January 2018, the tyre can also be driven all year round in countries with situational or static winter tyre requirements.
