Avon tyres - June 27, 2007, 11:52 AM

Any one have experience with AVONs? The article sounds pretty interesting.

http://www.webbikeworld.com/Motorcyc...n-storm-st.htm
The Storm ST is the first tire to include Avonís new "Reactive Footprint" technology. This technology marries Avonís unique variable belt density carcass with Lifetime Profile Engineering to produce a footprint which changes size and shape, depending on the bikeís lean angle, for the full life of the tire.

The result is a contact patch that grows as the bike leans, giving more grip in corners while minimizing wear rates when traveling in a straight line.

This technological breakthrough could eliminate the need to use dual compounds and would help solve the uneven wear problems associated with them. Pete McNally, Avonís Motorcycle Product Manager explained, ďThese new technologies combine to make a tire that doesnít just handle well when new but also in the last 25% of its life.Ē

I had the Azaro's and they were great except when it rained. Many people love the Azaro/Storms. I would if I had better luck when the rain fell. If it were only me that had the problem I would write it off. But, a freind had the same tires on a bandit in the same rain on the same road and we could not keep pass with the group.

My girlfriend's father swears by the Avons. But that is on his Harley Ultra!
