Avon AV72 Cobra Wide Whitewall Tires
With its unique snakeskin sidewalls, an aggressive tread pattern and low noise emission the Cobra silently defeats all roads that stand in its path. Advanced manufacturing techniques used in Avon's successful sporty Viper range have been adapted and applied to the Cobra series. WCTA - Wide Custom Tread Arc - is Avon's new tire profile that gives Cobra a nimble characteristic once reserved only for agile race-bred bikes, all without disrupting all-important stability. A-VBD - Advanced-Variable Density Belt - improves handling in the much wider Cobra sizes. This construction technology utilizes a jointless belt of ultra-strong material. Above the carcass, these strands are wound closely together at the tire’s center for increased stability and wear resistance. Towards the tire's edges the fibers are then progressively spaced out to allow the tire to take on a multi-compound effect as the tire leans. An aggressive tread pattern features FFG - Force Following Grooves - to follow the exact direction of forces that are transferred through the tire. These channels in the tire’s surface significantly reduce irregular and advanced wear on bikes that carry heavy loads. Each Cobra rear tire also features the distinctive snake's head logo on the sidewall.
