Kumho Ecsta AST
|The ESCTA AST is
the High Performance All-Season member of Kumho’s Ecsta
family of performance tires for the drivers of modified
coupes, sedans and sports cars. The Ecsta AST is designed to
provide the exotic looks, traction and value tuners want in
a tire while providing year-round traction on dry and wet
roads, as well as in light snow.
The Ecsta AST molds Kumho’s advanced carbon, all-season
tread compound into a directional tread design with
shoulders designed to increase cornering grip while the
center provides linear responsiveness and high-speed
stability. Dual-angle cross grooves help pump water and
slush through the tire's footprint to increase hydroplaning
resistance while multiple sipes in each tread block increase
the number of biting edges to enhance light snow traction.
The tire's structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by
spirally wrapped nylon, along with a polyester cord ply
carcass reinforced by a hard sidewall filler to help resist
distortion at high speeds and while cornering.
