Yokohama AVID Ascend GT
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- All weather traction
- Enhanced controllability
- Longer lasting tread life
- Reduced road noise levels
The Yokohama AVID Ascend GT is a touring all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. Yokohama offers a 65,000 mile treadwear warranty with this model.
The tire promotes great all weather traction. The tread pattern, with its multiple 3D siping detail and the notched tread blocks, and the special TriBLEND compound work together to increase the dry, wet and winter weather road gripping capability. The compound uses low-Tg polymer and high silica levels to improve and maintain the tires flexibility even in colder temperatures, while the siping detail and stabilized tread elements maintain a firm grip on the road surface. The tread patterns optimal circumferential groove design effectively channels water and slush away from the tires footprint, actively resisting hydroplaning when driving through standing water. The enhanced hydroplaning prevention and all weather traction ensure a safer year round driving experience.
The asymmetric tread pattern with the deep circumferential grooves and optimal siped and notched center ribs closely follows the road surface in all conditions. The stabilized tread elements, in this manner, upgrade the steering responsiveness and driving stability. In other words, the steering becomes faster and more precise in its responsiveness to the drivers commands, while the structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting the tire. The optimal asymmetric groove arrangement manages to shorten the braking distance significantly, even in wet and slippery weather. The treads stabilized elements create friction at the moment of braking, boosting the models stopping capability. The safer braking capability and better controllability enable the driver to confidently maneuver the vehicle at all times.
The model guarantees a longer lasting tread life. The stabilized tread elements and the special TriBLEND compound ensure a lengthened usability. The stabilized elements prevent tread flexing, which enables the tire to evenly spread out the driving pressure along the tread area. The equally circulated forces of acceleration, cornering and braking lengthen the tread life and the tires usability by preventing irregular wear formations across the tires surface. The TriBLEND compounds polymer and silica elements strengthen the compound and make it wear-resistant. In this manner, the tire ensures a slower tread wear rate, further boosting the models service life.
The AVID Ascend GT offers a quiet drive. The tread designs outer adaptive shoulder design stabilizes the shoulder tread blocks. This lowers the road noise generated while the tires are in motion. Furthermore, the closed outer shoulder pattern prevents airwaves from entering the tires footprint and coming into contact with the tread elements. As a result, the road and tread pattern noise is not generated and the tire guarantees quiet and comfortable driving experience.
