Avon Tyres has released a successor to the phenomenally popular Storm ST family of sports-touring tyres.
The new Storm 2 Ultra builds on the enviable performance of the Storm ST and improves upon it in a number of areas. Developed from the award-winning Storm ST tyre, the new Storm 2 Ultra offers even more mileage and improved grip in all weather and road conditions.
The multi-compound Super Rich Silica (SRS) tread produces up to 12% more mileage than the original ‘mile eating’ Storm ST. Meanwhile, an advanced new technology is incorporated in the zero-degree belting system, while the dynamic stresses within the carcass itself have also been modified. These changes increase mechanical grip and allow for improved traction in both wet and dry conditions, while also enhancing the handling and overall ride comfort.
“The Storm 2 Ultra is state of the art. It is the most advanced Sport Touring tyre we have ever produced,” stated Peter McNally, Avon’s Product and Design Manager.
The current Storm ST tyre has recently won praise from readers of both Motor Cycle News and RiDE magazine for both performance and cost effectiveness, so with the much-improved performance of the Storm 2 Ultra, Avon customers can be confident of increased rider safety as well as better value for money.
The new Storm 2 Ultra is available in the following sizes:
Fronts AV 55s: 110/70ZR17, 110/80ZR18, 120/60ZR17, 120/70ZR17, 120/70ZR18 and 130/70ZR17.
Rear AV56s: 150/70ZR17, 150/70ZR18, 160/60ZR17, 160/70R17, 160/60ZR18, 170/60ZR17, 180/55ZR17, 190/50ZR7 and 200/50ZR17.
