The Yokohama Avid Ascend GT tire is one of the newest additions to the Touring all-season lineup. It offers a sporty design that has a long tread life, outstanding responsiveness, and a reliable grip in both wet and dry conditions. Consistent wear and superior traction in all weather conditions can be expected with the all-new TriBLEND engineered compound that combines a low Tg-polymer and high-silica mix.
Deep circumferential grooves expel water out to resist hydroplaning and the asymmetric pattern delivers exceptional wet braking and stable contact with the road. Open notches on the inside shoulders allow water to pass through, improving responsiveness overall. The Avid Ascend GT tire also has multiple 3D sipes and notched blocks for additional traction. This tire is designed with safety and comfort in mind. The outside Adaptive Shoulder Blocks creates one of the smoothest rides in its class.
Outside noise is also virtually eliminated, offering a quiet and enjoyable driving experience. The Avid Ascend GT also features the Yokohama BluEarth tire branding. BluEarth products are developed to meet Yokohama’s ecological standards and are designed to be environment, human and socially friendly. Tires with the BluEarth logo create a smaller footprint, offer better fuel economy, run quieter and perform much better on wet surfaces than other leading products.
