Hankook iFlex - Look at Tires with no Air
The iFlex is Hankook's fifth attempt at non-pneumatic tires, and brings with it a number of environmental benefits compared to conventional tires. The tire is non-pneumatic tire (NPT) called the Hankook iFlex.
In tests including durability, hardness, stability, speed, and slalom tests an electric car fitted with iFlex tires performed well. The car reached speeds of 130 km/h and had good results in each test according to Hankook.
Hankook is offering up no hard data on the tests nor has it offered comparisons to its traditional performance tires. Another mystery is when exactly the tires might show up on the market. They look very strange, but it would be great to have a performance tire that can't get a flat with the same ride and handling of a traditional tire.
