Kumho Ecsta V720



Description

The Ecsta V720 was bred for autocross and domesticated for civil society. It offers heart-pounding performance on dry pavement, cool confidence on wet, and an unusually long life for a tire that lives this fast.

  • Solid center rib maintains high-speed stability for precision control under duress.
  • Wide, optimized outside blocks deliver excellent grip around corners and exceptionally stable dry handling.
  • Crossed lateral grooves channel water away from the tread for enhanced wet handling. Inside grooves reduce hydroplaning. Outside grooves clear water from the shoulder block for better wet cornering.
  • Heat dispersion by 3D hot dimples helps extend the tread life and improve wet performance.
  • High tensile CARCASS and super-hard APEX combine grip and performance with an exceptionally long tread life.
  • Reinforced max grip applies Formula technology to the street, with a new under-tread rubber application and super high-grip resin.
