Nexen Tire’s Winguard Sport 2 tire has received an iF Design Award.
The German-based iF Design Award is one of the most prestigious and largest design competitions in the world. The iF Design Award, hosted by the iF International Forum Design, is regarded as one of the top three design awards in the world, along with the Red Dot Design Award and IDEA Design Award.
Launched in 2017, Winguard Sport 2 is a winter tire that has realized the optimal driving experience in the snow. It has increased its side force generation on snow and wet surfaces with a shoulder block groove and a new pitch arrangement, which reinforces its performance on snow and ice. The product has been evaluated as a premium winter tire, known for its excellent grip and stable performance in the snow thanks to its unique 3-D winter kerf and zigzag groove design.
“Nexen Tire’s global award-winning products have proven not only our excellence in performance and quality, but our competitiveness in design,” said Kyung Woo Cheon, executive vice president of R&D at Nexen Tire. “Nexen Tire will continue to improve our product competitiveness in the global market through continuous investment in R&D.”
The 2018 iF Design Awards had 6,400 designs competing from 54 countries.
