Product description & features
The Avon ZV7 is a high performance summer tyre - rated A for wet grip.
Avon have developed the ZV7 to take on the very worst that the British seasons can throw up. The tyre features large circumferential grooves to quickly remove surface water from the path of the tyre - reducing the chances of aquaplaning. Avon have designed a new tread pattern with 3D sipes that have been optimised to enhance grip in wet conditions.
Use of a new polymer technology, blended with advanced mixing techniques for the tread compound, mean the tyre is capable of delivering better wet and dry grip, reducing rolling resistance and impressive longevity.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
