Smasher Concept

Featured Finalist
2016

Kumho Smasher is a versatile and extreme concept tire which features advanced grip technology, hard grinders and tread wear patterns to cope with steep slopes and disaster zones from earthquakes, fires and floods. This concept tire would be equipped with a self-developing system inside the tire—developed through biomimicry of octopus leg adsorption. An octopus has the ability to adhere to every facet because of the many suckers inside its legs. This design maximizes ‘Smasher’ traction performance in rugged areas.
