Avon launch new TrailRider tyre

British tyre firm replaces popular Distanzia with new rubber

AVON Tyres has launched a new adventure sport tyre called the Trailrider.

Blending the all-season capabilities of Avon’s Storm 3D-XM, which we reviewed last year, the new rubber has a more rugged, off road-style tread pattern.

The British firm said its engineers focused on stability, wet grip and mileage on a wide range of large-capacity dual-sport machines to offer improved capability over the outgoing Distanzia tyre.

Avon said: ‘It's also a tyre developed in Britain, on British roads, in British weather – so it promises the ultimate in performance for UK riders.’

Ashley Vowles, Avon's motorcycle design engineer, commented on the new tyre, saying, ‘We've designed the Trailrider carcass construction to deliver improved grip and handling. Our chemists have come up with a new super-rich silica compound, using the latest compounding technology to enhance wet grip without affecting mileage. We've also used a multi-compound tread on the rear radial models, giving softer tread on the edge for better grip, and a more durable compound in the centre of the tyre for better mileage.’

Avon's new Trailrider will be available from the beginning of June in a range of sizes and will be produced in radial and bias ply constructions.

Price to be confirmed.
