In the first round of Auto Bild's 2023 summer tyre tests, Hankook Ventus S1 evo 3 has emerged as the winner in the braking distance category. Auto Bild magazine, the trade magazine in question, meticulously tested 50 different Ultra High-Performance summer tyre brands with 225/45R18 tyre sizes and speed index Y (up to 300 km/h) to find the best ones for the upcoming summer season.

The top 20 performers in terms of braking performance on wet and dry roads were selected to move forward to the next round of testing. Auto Bild considers the combined wet/dry braking distance to be the critical safety factor in recommending which tyres to purchase. The Hankook Ventus S1 evo 3 topped all other brands in this category, with an excellent dry braking distance at 100 km/h of 33.3 metres and a wet braking distance at 80 km/h of just 24.8 metres.

In the next round of testing, the 20 best tyres in the braking discipline will compete against each other in other tests, including handling, aquaplaning, and mileage. The Auto Bild brake test revealed significant differences among the tyre brands being tested, with the Hankook Ventus S1 evo 3 coming to a stop within 15.5 metres on wet roads, or a good three car lengths sooner than the other tyre brands being tested.

The results of the Auto Bild brake test are evidence of the expertise and use of high-quality materials employed by Hankook, a premium tyre manufacturer, in the creation of the Ventus S1 evo 3. These materials are not only valuable but also help prevent accidents in extreme cases.

Hankook's success in the Auto Bild brake test provides the company with a competitive advantage and strengthens its reputation for producing high-quality and safe tyres. Auto Bild's comprehensive testing of summer tyres provides consumers with crucial information to make informed purchasing decisions, especially regarding safety.
