Hankook Expands Commercial Line with SmartFlex DL15+

Feb. 1, 2023

Hankook Tire America Corp. has added to its commercial truck and bus product line with the SmartFlex DL15+ tire. The SmartWay-approved tire boasts several new tread design features to enhance overall traction performance and increase fuel efficiency for regional and long-haul fitments. 

The SmartFlex DL15+ also offers a 12-point increase in its rolling resistance coefficient compared to its predecessor.  

The tire was developed using Hankook’s Smartec TBR technology, which is based on five main performance features - safety, mileage, anti-chip and cut, retreadability and traction. 

The tire’s three-dimensional and self-regeneration sipes that turn out at mid and latter stages improve traction performance and reinforce interlocking components between blocks until the end of wear. Additional design elements include a combined rib and semi-block pattern to provide added stability and handling; a wide closed shoulder pattern at the tire’s edges, allowing for smoother wear throughout its lifecycle; and more.
