Kumho designed a unique, extreme mud terrain tread design intended for withstanding and performing in even the most extreme off-road driving experiences. The aggressive tread design is paired with seven integrated steel and fabric layers, three-ply high-strength construction, two steel cord layers and two nylon protection plies. With these powers combined, Kumbo hopes that they have delivered one of the most robust mud-terrain tyres that the market has seen.
The Road Venture MT71 aims to offer the driver:
- Enhanced climbing performance and off-road traction
- Increased durability with extra cut and chip resistance
- Exceptional off-road performance
- Excellent highway safety and stability
Mud terrain tyres are well known for their on-road noise, which for some, is an issue as it can have a negative impact on the driver (and passenger) experience. Kumho hopes to have combated the issue somewhat however, and claims that the Road Venture MT71 delivers significantly less on-road noise, when compared to others available on the market.
How, you may be wondering? Kumho has designed a packed centre block and dual pitch tread with a pattern which utilises the theories of fluid mechanics. Not only does this design feature boast lower on-road noise, but Kumho also claims that these design features will enhance wet performance, climbing ability and traction both on and off road across both mud and rock.
These are some pretty big promises! Perhaps this is unsurprising, when you consider that Kumho, who have been around since 1960, have always been driven by innovative technical development and are today considered as one of the world’s leading tyre companies.
What do you think? Are you an avid off-road driver keen to put the new Road Venture MT71 tyre to the test? If so, we’d love to hear about your experiences in a future review!
