The distinguishing characteristics of an ultra-high-performance tyre is not just the size, but also its superior competency in the most demanding of situations. With a set of UHP tyres fitted to a performance car, you can expect a sporty ride, smoother lane changes, plus enhanced steering precision and cornering stability.
Our engineers have worked tirelessly to develop a range of UHP tyres that can handle the increased speeds, torque, and G-forces produced by the extra horsepower, enhanced brakes, and sports-tuned suspension of vehicles delivered by producers such as Kahn Design.
Over time, our world-class engineers and technicians have devised a vast number of technologies to dramatically enhance tyre performance characteristics. More than just a new rubber compound, Black Chili is based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research. A “Micro Flexibility Compound” ensures optimum grip, providing better acceleration and safety reserves for all Kahn Design vehicles.
We have a long history of product excellence and commitment to redefine UHP performance. Our High-Performance Technology Centre (HTPC) has been in operation since June 2016. It currently produces extremely sophisticated high-speed tyres for performance sports cars and SUVs. Some 350,000 tyres roll off the production line every year.
