Nexen N’fera Sport S Tyre Wins Red DOT Design Award

Nexen Tire announced that its N’fera Sport S tyres won the main prize in the product design category of Germany’s Red Dot Design Award 2024.

Nexen N’fera Sport S: Award-Winning Design

The Red Dot Design Award is an internationally recognised design competition organised by the Design Zentrium Nordhein Westfalen of Germany. It is regarded as one of the top three global design awards, alongside the IDEA Design Awards in the United States and the iF Design Award in Germany.

The award-winning N’fera Sport S is a high-performance premium tyre designed for dynamic high-speed driving, with outstanding durability, handling, and braking performance.

The design is optimised for the performance balance between dry and wet road surfaces using 3+1 grooves – thick vertical grooves on tire surfaces – to avoid aquaplaning and maximise dry road surface grip.

In addition, for agile handling, the stiffness of the shoulder in the outer part where load and ground are concentrated was enhanced, and high-speed steering was improved by using a wide centre block. A driving direction groove chamfer (tyre block corner slide design) was used to reduce abnormal wear and improve wet performance.

The use of left and right multi-treads improves high-speed durability and braking performance while also providing stable high-speed handling. Such driving performance was validated by rigorous tests at Germany’s Nürburgring, a notoriously difficult driving course.

Meanwhile, the HN Replacement mark, which represents the only Korean tyre company to obtain tyre technology certification for replacement exclusively for the Hyundai N Brand, was imprinted on the sidewall.
