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, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.

Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.

Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
