Hankook Ventus S1 Evo Z K129

Manufacturer's description

Maximum performance with proven motorsport technology.

  • Maximum braking performance
  • Impressive handling and steering control
  • Optimum stable performance during powerful acceleration


  • Tread Compound (This is a new compound based on motorsport tyre development technology. It helps the tyre's rubber particles to easily penetrate the road surface in high temperature conditions for maximum handling and braking performance);
  • Aramid Hybrid Reinforcement Belt (The tyre strength has been increased to respond to a high level of initial output and powerful initial acceleration);
  • Folded Belt Edge Tape (The strength of the belt has been enhanced to improve durability);
  • Application of High Strength Steel Belt Wire (Using high-strength belts that perfectly absorb external shock, improving the durability of the tyre and riding comfort);
  • Dual Layer Fibre Stiffener (With the dual structure of the carcass fibre stiffener, the tyre hardness and strength is structurally durable);
  • Strong Jointless Bead Wire (By increasing the binding force between the wheel and the joint, even thoroughout high initial acceleration, the tyre will always be attached to the wheel);
  • Bead Packing (Ventus S1 evo Z is equipped with a bead packing structure to improve the sidewall stiffness and durability of the tyre. It helps to increase stability and performance during high acceleration).

Notable Features

Hankook Ventus S1 evo Z K129 is UUHP asymmetric summer tire, designed to be fitted on powerful sports cars that need reliable cornering grip. This tire ensures confident driving in dry and wet road conditions, as well as sporty handling response, combined with superior road holding ability, resistance to wear, and heavy-duty performance. Ventus S1 evo Z K129 The first information about Hankook Ventus S1 evo Z K129 popped up at the close of 2020, when the manufacturer announced that a contract had been signed for supplying these tires as original equipment for the limited-edition MINI John Cooper Works GP. For all intents and purposes, this initial information hinted that the Ventus S1 evo Z model would remain the OE development for deluxe-class sports cars. However, less than six months later, it was announced that the K129 tire was launched into mass production and was expected in the European aftermarket as early as the second half of 2021. Dry / Wet Performance The asymmetric tread pattern and the large contact patch maximize the cornering performance of Ventus S1 evo Z, notes our technical expert. The engineers paid particular attention to the shoulder section of the outer part of the tread, since the greatest lateral load falls on it. The dual tread blocks and wide lateral grooves improve the maneuverability and speed up evacuation of water from the contact area. Wide Circumferential Grooves Optimization of the width and the number of circumferential grooves made it possible to increase the contact surface, and, consequently, the efficiency of the drainage system on rainy days. The optimum tread-to-void ratio and the tread stiffness support a stable level of traction in various driving conditions.

Aramid, which came to replace the regular nylon cord, offers better stability and exceptional durability, minimizing deformation of the tread blocks in the contact area during high-speed maneuvering.

Remarkably, despite its sporty character, the Hankook Ventus S1 evo Z K129 tire also offers a reasonable level of ride comfort. The road noise is mitigated by the lateral drainage grooves.
