The concept tyres were developed together with the German University of Pforzheim. Students design, engineering and business worked together with Hankook for these innovative concepts.
The Boostrac is a tyre with a variable running surface structure that can extend to improve traction. This is ment for steep hills and in rough- desertlike surcomstances. The Alpike is designed with unique extendable posibilities for making the tyre higher. This can be helpfull in snow or when more clearance is needed. The Hyblade is a tyre with special technology to cope with a lot of water.
All three concepts got the IDEA (International Design Excellence Award) award and the prestigious Red Dot award.
