Kontrol Technology

Hankook Tire global - Kontrol Technology

Kontrol Technology is a philosophy inherent to Hankook Tire and is applied across the entire research, development and production process for all Hankook Tire products. The ‘K’ of Kontrol stands for ‘Kinetic’ or, in other words, ‘movement.’ Kontrol is based on the basic concept of being able to fully command the interaction between car, driver and the road.

All Hankook Tire products are based on the concept of Kontrol Technology and aim to provide consumers the joy of driving through ‘performance, comfort, safety and environment.’ From the extreme performance of motorsports, to the daily routine of driving kids safely to school on a rainy day, Kontrol Technology is always there.
