Kumho’s engineers have developed the ECSTA LE Sport, a summer tire, to deliver dynamic handling performance on dry and wet roads. Drivers of performance sedans, sporty coupes and sports car will find that the ECSTA LE Sport has a sophisticated European-inspired design, which provides a mix of ride comfort and road quietness. The ECSTA LE Sport should not be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice. Kumho’s engineers used a High Grip Performance Resin improved tread compound, shaped in an asymmetric design to develop the ECSTA LE Sport. The tire’s wide outboard shoulder blocks allows for dry road cornering grip, while the continuous center ribs provide high-speed stability. Other significant features include broad circumferential tread grooves, slots and notches, which enhance water evacuation, wet grip and hydroplaning resistance. Internally, the tire features twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wound joint less nylon, which provides responsive handling, stable cornering and high-speed durability. The Ecsta LE Sport comes with a casing strengthened by a Lyocell cord to deliver more durability and dimensional stability while d riving in different temperatures.
