Kumho has released details of its latest product for the European market. The PorTran 4S CX11 all-season tire for light commercial vehicles and vans combines features of the company’s previous tires, the SOLUS 4S HA32 for passenger cars and the winter PorTran CW11 van tire.
Kumho says that a combination of cutting-edge compounds and advanced tread design will optimize contact pressure with the road, leading to a reduction in fuel consumption and giving the tire excellent braking characteristics and performance in all weather conditions. The PorTran 4S CX11 tread has been optimized for use in cold, snow-covered situations and has been granted a 3PMSF (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake) European certification.
The PorTran 4S CX11 will be available in 15 sizes from 15in to 17in to accommodate Europe’s most popular vans and light commercial vehicles. It will be available later in 2021.
Kim Sang Yub, head of the sales and marketing division at Kumho, commented, “The popularity of the SOLUS 4S HA32, launched last year, has enabled us to release this new product for LCVs. We are striving to build on our technological excellence to be recognized as a smart mobility partner not only in Europe but throughout the world.”
