Yokohama AVID Ascend GT

The Yokohama AVID Ascend GT is an asymmetric all-season tire that delivers exceptional handling and braking performance on wet and snowy roads, surprisingly quiet driving, and superior fuel efficiency, surpassing the previous generation AVID Ascend and AVID ENVigor models. On July 1, 2018, the new Yokohama AVID Ascend GT all-season tire entered the North American market to help the Japanese brand gain a foothold in the grand touring segment.

The all-season Yokohama AVID GT has been developed for the North American market using the basic design technologies and materials of the BluEarth eco-range. The model ensures a safe ride in any weather and even during a sudden snowfall. In addition, the tire improves the vehicle's fuel efficiency and provides superior handling and control.

The all-season traction of Yokohama AVID Ascend GT tires is due to the multiplicity of three-dimensional sipes and "jagged" blocks. By increasing the edge effect, they significantly improve the handling of the model on dry and wet asphalt, as well as increase traction stability on snow.

The asymmetric arrangement of the circumferential drainage grooves accelerates the removal of water and snow slurry from the contact area, as a result of which the AVID Ascend GT tires well resist aquaplaning, are stable when traveling through melted snow, and quickly break in wet conditions.

A computer simulation method with innovative designs has resulted in the reliable Yokohama Avid Ascend GT tires. Mechanized control of rubber composition and quality contributes to handling, maneuverability, and cross-country ability. The carefully thought-out line design is responsible for the stability of the machine in difficult road areas. Comfort and safety meet the standards. They are adapted for daily use in all conditions. Anyone can buy tires from the online catalog, financial benefits and originality are guaranteed.

The new TriBlend rubber compound and ultra-flat square contact area guarantee high wear resistance and preservation of all-season properties of the tire throughout its long-term use.

The Yokohama AVID Ascend GT Adaptive Outer Shoulder provides stability to the shoulder blocks to prevent uneven wear. The variable tread pitch of this all-season model enhances mechanical and acoustic comfort.

The global concept of the Japanese manufacturer BluEarth, implemented in the model, means that this tire is "green" and is characterized by reduced fuel consumption and environmental friendliness.

This tire has been developed using the basic design technologies and materials used in the Yokohama BluEarth eco range. Designed to ensure a safe ride even during a sudden snowfall, the Yokohama AVID GT has the appropriate M + S (mud and snow) markings on the sidewall. In addition, the tire improves the vehicle's fuel efficiency and provides superior handling and safety.

Manufacturing technology of tires that are safe for the environment, comfortable for humans and the whole society. Tires should not only be fun to drive but also cause as little harm to the environment as possible. YOKOHAMA launched the BluEarth brand to maximize the “friendship” of its tires with nature, people, and society.

Yokohama's all-season AVID Ascend GT will be a good addition to a wide range of coupes, sedans, and minivans.

“We have had great success in the H and V tire market with products such as AVID Ascend and AVID ENVigor,” said Andrew Briggs, vice president of marketing for Yokohama America. “And as we want to meet the growing demand for this category of tires among end-users, we are bringing to market the new Ascend GT that significantly outperforms the previous generation in terms of handling in a variety of weather conditions, and offers the same high durability and excellent level of comfort.”
