Yokohama Avid Ascend GT

Manufacturer's description

Introducing the next generation of touring tires, the All-New AVID Ascend GT. Its asymmetric tread design and all-new TriBLEND compound technology deliver extraordinary handling and ride characteristics, including powerful braking on wet and snowy roads and a remarkably quiet ride.

  • Long tread life (Triple 3D sipes and an ultra-square contact patch produce even, long wear that retains its all-season traction over the life of the tire)
  • All-Season traction (Performance matters most on snowy roads so hundreds of 3D sipes and a notched block tread design produce more grip for true all-season traction)
  • Wet braking (All-new TriBlend compound and an asymmetric groove arrangement that deliver extra grip on wet and snowy roads)
  • Quieter ride (A unique multi-pitch tread design varies the size of tread blocks around the tire to reduce road noise and create a quiet, comfortable ride)

Notable Features

Yokohama AVID Ascend GT is an asymmetric “grand touring” all-season tire that ensures superb handling response and efficient braking performance on wet and snow-covered roads, an amazingly quiet ride, and fuel efficiency, surpassing the results demonstrated by the previous-generation models AVID Ascend and AVID ENVigor. A new model 2018. Yokohama AVID Ascend GT The all-year traction, delivered by the Yokohama AVID Ascend GT, is ensured by the multiple 3D sipes and “toothy” tread blocks. Enhancing the edge effect, they significantly improve the model’s handling response on wet and dry pavement, as well as increase the stability of snow traction. 3D Sipes and Notched Blocks The asymmetric pattern of circumferential drainage grooves helps to quickly evacuate water and slush from the contact area, as a result of which the AVID Ascend GT tire offers excellent hydroplaning resistance, keeps stable when driving on melted snow, and ensures a short stopping distance in the wet. Circumferential Drainage Grooves The new rubber compound TriBlend and the ultra-flat square contact patch provide high resistance to wear and ensure that the tire maintains its operational properties throughout its entire long tread life. Rubber Compound TriBlend The adaptive outer shoulder of the Yokohama AVID Ascend GT ensures stability of the shoulder blocks, preventing uneven wear. The varied pitch of the tread of this all-season model serves to dampen the road noise and provide a smooth ride. Outer Shoulder The global BluEarth concept, developed by this Japanese tire maker, and also implemented in this model, means that this tire is “green”, i.e. environmentally friendly and ensures lower fuel consumption by the vehicle. AVID Ascend GT / AVID Ascend The Yokohama AVID Ascend GT tire will be a great asset to a wide range of coupes, sedans, and minivans.
