The KO2 uses CoreGard technology developed in the Baja T/A KR2 4WD tyre for split and bruise-resistant sidewall rubber and a thicker, extended shoulder to prevent sidewall failures. Computer modeling was used to predict object paths creating a sidewall design most likely to deflect protruding objects, reducing the chances of splits and snags. The result is a tougher 4x4 tyre so you can take on terrain in all conditions.
The KO2 4x4 tyre has a new tread design and rubber formulation that helps it last twice as long on gravel and 15 percent longer on bitumen than the previous KO 4WD tyre. The tread rubber has been optimally blended to reduce chips and tears on gravel. A new footprint shape and interlocking tread design provide more uniform wear over the long-haul. Special stone ejectors push objects out of the tread to reduce drilling into the tyre.
The KO2 4WD tyre also has a range of tread features for better mud and snow traction. Side-Biter lugs in the sidewall improve traction in mud, snow and rocks. Raised bars in the shoulder help release compacted mud for better traction in soft soil. 3-D sipes create biting edges for better snow and sand traction.
Protruding sidewall rubber blocks provide increased mud, snow & rock traction, especially in aired-down driving situations.
Raised bars in the shoulder tread help release compacted mud for enhanced traction in muddy and soft soil conditions.
Staggered shoulder blocks provide greater maneuverability in soft soil and deep snow conditions. Combined with 3-D active sipe technology that provide more biting edges, the KO2 4WD tyre exceeds Rubber Manufacturer Association (RMA) Severe Snow Traction requirements.
