Avon has been making high quality tyres since 1904, tyres that fit all sorts of cars and motorbikes, vans and trailers. And over the years Avon has not only proved itself on the road but also on the racetracks of the world, on two wheels as well as four.
Today, Avon's century of tyre-making experience is combined with the very latest design and manufacturing technology. Add in a punishing test regime and you can see why Avon makes tyres of unparalleled quality and ability.
So if you're after tyres that can confidently shrug off the elements, tyres that help make driving a pleasure rather than a chore, ask for Avon.
Cobra motorcycle tires With its unique snakeskin sidewalls, aggressive tread pattern and low noise emissions, Cobra silently defeats all roads that stand in its path.
Construction: Advanced manufacturing techniques used in Avon's successful sporty Viper range have been adapted and applied to Cobra:
WCTA - Wide Custom Tread Arc - is Avon new tyre profile that gives Cobra a nimble characteristic once reserved only for agile race-bred bikes, all without disrupting all-important stability.
A-VBD - Advanced-Variable Density Belt - improves handling in the much wider Cobra sizes. This construction technology utilises a jointless belt of ultra-strong material. Above the carcass, these strands are wound closely together at the tyre's centre for increased stability and wear resistance. Towards the tyre's edges the fibres are then progressively spaced out to allow the tyre to take on a multi-compound effect as the tyre leans.
Tread Pattern: An aggressive tread pattern features FFG - Force Following Grooves - to follow the exact direction of forces that are transferred through the tyre. These channels in the tyre's surface significantly reduce irregular and advanced wear on bikes that carry heavy loads. Each Cobra rear tyre also features the distinctive snake's head logo on the sidewall.
Available in a wide range of sizes, incorporating fitments for Harley Davidson's V-Rod, Triumph's Rocket III, Honda's Goldwing and Valkyrie plus some sizes for custom bike applications.

Storm motorcycle tires The Avon Storm-ST replaces Avon's Azaro-ST and builds on its predecessor's talents. Employing what's called 'Reactive Footprint' (RF) technology, the Storm-ST produces a footprint that changes size and shape depending on the bike's lean angle, growing in size the further over the bike goes. It means you get high grip through the corners yet in a straight line have a footprint which increases the Storm-STs lifespan. Avon RF Technology is a quantum leap in technology from the dual compound tread, and will provide unparalleled evenness in wear patterns.
The wet weather performance of the Storm-ST is outstanding. The extremely high silica content delivers optimum grip in the wet and dry. It also has the added benefit of warming up quickly.
On the front tyres, the Storm-ST benefits from Inverted Front Grooves (IFG) that resist stepped-wear and cupping, ensuring smooth handling for the life of the tyre and improving wet weather braking. With all this (together with many other unique-to Avon technologies) it's no wonder the Storm-ST has gained numerous approvals from the tough German testing organisation, the TUV.
Developed on the track for hard use both on the circuit whilst remaining road legal, the Viper Xtreme is uncompromising in its pursuit of ultimate dry surface grip and high-speed performance. The Viper Xtreme’s rubber compound is specially formulated to be both super-sticky and to reach its optimum operating temperature extremely quickly, making it ideal for trackday use.
