Tire Performances: HP UHP
Yokohama tires are designed to perform better, keep you safer, and take you further. The AVID Ascend has tread block bridges to reduce tread movement for even treadwear and reduced noise. Adaptive 3D sipes deliver true all-season power, while promoting longer wear. And our exclusive Orange Oil Technology contributes to low rolling resistance, and long tread life.

Features and Benefits
- The AVID Ascend features a mildly asymmetric tread design consisting of three ride zones that focus on dry grip, water evacuation and wintertime traction. - Large outboard shoulder blocks are connected by tread block bridges to maintain tire contact with the road that helps enhance dry response and cornering stability. - The continuous center rib provides constant rubber-to-road contact to enhance straight-line tracking while its tapered outboard edge promotes more-even wear. - Cross grooves and four circumferential grooves help evacuate water from under the tread to increase hydroplaning resistance and promote wet traction. - Yokohama's 3D Adaptive Sipes provide more tread block rigidity for longer wear, while their biting edges increase wet and wintertime traction. - Inboard tread blocks feature higher density 3D Adaptive Sipes to provide additional biting edges that increase winter traction in light snow. - The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon on top of polyester body plies.
