The Crugen HP71 is Kumho’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire developed for drivers of crossovers, SUVs and light-duty pickup trucks looking for a quiet, luxurious ride combined with all-season capability, including light snow traction.
Kumho Crugen HP71The all-season tread compound of the Crugen HP71 is molded into a five-rib, symmetric design featuring Kumho’s Variable Pitch Technology that provides a quiet and comfortable ride while also allowing for easy rotation patterns to promote even wear and longevity. A rigid center rib provides the solid on-center feel and combines with strong shoulders in aiding handling and steering response while also adding stability to combat irregular wear. Notches in the ribs and wide grooves in the shoulders combine with four circumferential grooves to evacuate water from the contact patch for hydroplaning resistance, and sipes and independent tread blocks create biting edges for traction in slippery conditions.
The tire’s internal structure consists of a two-ply polyester cord body for enhanced ride quality and improved strength. Two wide steel belts sit on top of the casing and are reinforced by two spirally wrapped nylon cap plies, enhancing handling, durability, and stability at highway speeds.
