North America launch of Hankook Dynapro XT and AT2 Xtreme

Hankook Tire is set to expand its line of Dynapro products in the North American market to include the brand-new Rugged Terrain Dynapro XT and next generation Dynapro AT2 Xtreme.

The Dynapro XT will be available in 30 sizes while the Dynapro AT2 Xtreme will be available in 32 sizes. Hankook said Dynapro AT2 Xtreme will continue adding new sizes through a phased launch, eventually reaching 98 total sizes by 2022.

As Hankook’s first Rugged Terrain product, the Dynapro XT features high-rigidity polygonal blocks and wide zig-zag grooves that offer “excellent” off-road traction in rugged conditions as well as an “aggressive” sawtoothed sidewall design that provides protection against punctures, according to the tyre maker.

The Dynapro XT also comes equipped with a 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake rating, allowing for continued performance in severe snow conditions.

Additionally, Hankook claims its optimised pattern provides a quiet and comfortable ride using arranged pitch variation technology, chamfered edges that minimise road impact and shoulder block cushions that absorb road noise.

Although more aggressive than its predecessor, Hankook says the Dynapro AT2 Xtreme still provides quiet and comfortable on-road performance with its noise-reducing tie-bars and staged block edges.

This tyre is also 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake rated, built with multi-directional grooves and sipes as well as biting block edges that provide added traction in wet and severe snow conditions.
