Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 Tire Review & Rating

The Ventus S1 Noble2 is Hankook's latest entry in their ultra-high performance all-season tire lineup. Built for drivers of all types of sport coupes and sedans, the Noble 2 provides year-round traction and cornering performance on dry, wet and even snow covered road surfaces.

A high-performance hybrid silica tread compound provides increased wet traction, while also giving this model a lower rolling resistance for added fuel efficiency. Of course, fuel efficiency isn't what is always on the minds of drivers of this tire. That said, the notched shoulders and tread design provide impressive dry traction and cornering grip. The tire's center rib further enhances steering response, something that is very good on this model.

Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 Tire Review

Four circumferential grooves and Hankook's Aqua Hydro Block technology increase wet traction and braking performance, while also reducing the risk of hydroplaning by channeling away water from under the tire. Winter handling is addressed through the use of 3D sipes and unique edge grooves that provide biting edges on snow and ice.

Hankook uses special 3D vibration analysis technology on the Noble2. It creates a more advanced profile for the mold, which results in a footprint that optimizes treadwear and provides increased brake performance. Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are nylon reinforced for added strength and durability at higher speeds.

A polyester cord body increases ride comfort, and hardened bead fillers in the sidewall create added handling capabilities. Hankook offers sizes ranging from 16-20 inches and includes a 50,000 mile tread guarantee.

Pros

  • Dry and wet traction are very good
  • Excellent grip in the corners
  • Tire stability and steering response
  • Comfortable ride for a high-performance tire
  • 50,000 mile warranty

Cons

  • Tire is too new to know how well the tread will hold up

Overall Thoughts

The new Noble2 from Hankook looks to be an excellent addition to their high-performance tire lineup. It starts with an attractive tread design and continues on from there. Dry and wet pavement traction is excellent on this model. The steering is responsive and the tire is stable throughout the speed range.

Cornering grip is another area where this tire excels. It's fun taking on and off ramps with this model. Winter handling is pretty much what you would expect. While nowhere near that of a winter tire of course, it's not that bad.

Overall, we really like this tire. The price is more budget-friendly than you'll find with many other tires in this class, and performance is above average at this stage.
