The Ecsta LE Sport is Kumho’s Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of sports cars, sporty coupes and performance sedans who want dynamic handling performance on dry and wet roads. The Ecsta LE Sport offers a sophisticated European-inspired design that delivers a blend of ride comfort and cockpit quietness. Like all summer tires, it is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
The Ecsta LE Sport molds a High Grip Performance Resin enhanced tread compound into an asymmetric design that features wide outboard shoulder blocks to deliver dry road cornering grip while continuous center ribs provide high speed stability. Wide circumferential tread grooves, notches and slots promote water evacuation for hydroplaning resistance and wet grip.
The tire’s internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wound jointless nylon to provide responsive handling, stable cornering and high-speed durability. The Ecsta LE Sport’s Lyocell cord reinforced casing offers more strength and dimensional stability than polyester or rayon across a range of temperatures.
