Catering for a wide range of vehicles, from small hatchbacks to large saloons, as well as MPVs and sportscars, the new Avon ZV5 boasts significant improvements in handling, fuel efficiency and road noise, thanks to the use of the latest silica compounds and computer-aided design techniques.

Designed to offer premium performance in a variety of conditions, the Avon ZV5 has been developed using advanced tyre technology combined with Avon’s 100 years’-plus experience of producing tyres.

Asymmetric tread pattern

The asymmetric tread pattern has been enhanced with wide, open slots on the shoulders improving handling in dry weather, while bold, open circumferential grooves help reduce the chances of aquaplaning in deep water. The tread blocks and siping have been designed to cut through thin films of water to further enhance braking performance.

Meanwhile, the ‘Tri-Arc’ tread profile creates more uniform pressure contact with the road, and a stiffer lower sidewall layer sharpens steering response. All of which means better grip, improved resistance to aquaplaning in deep puddles, shorter braking distance and an increased feeling of confidence for the driver.

Responsive and quiet

Tested to extremes on a wide range of cars on real road conditions throughout Europe, as well as some of Europe’s premier proving grounds, the ZV5 provides outstanding performance on dry roads.

Use of the latest computer design software has also allowed the optimisation of the tread block formation to produce less resistance, cutting down on road noise. In addition, specially shaped shoulder blocks have been incorporated to improve handling stability, while the internal construction of the tyre is designed to provide excellent steering response.

Key Points of the Avon ZV5

  • Outstanding grip in the wet and the dry
  • Progressive, predictable handling
  • Excellent braking performance, wet and dry
  • Quiet running
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.

Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.

The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.

With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.

Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.

Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
