Avon Cobra for Trike front ends
Avon Tyres has announced a 16" Cobra tire specifically designed for trike front wheel applications.
Features include a flatter profile to resist the scrubbing-off effect that trike fronts are typically prone to, and with bigger blocks of rubber in the construction to resist the irregular wear that can occur.
The sidewall has "Trike" emblazoned on it to differentiate it from regular Cobra motorcycle tires and the special construction is said to help with heavy loads.
Last year the British custom tire specialist moved to add to its durability credentials with the announcement of an innovative road hazard warranty program that offers a free replacement of any new tire if it suffers accidental, puncture or impact damage soon after purchase.
Avon followed that up with a 15,000 mile limited treadwear warranty for its Cobra and Storm 3D X-M tires. If the tread wears to the treadwear indicators within the first 15,000 miles of normal use, the company will award a credit adjustment in the form of a prepaid card for the unused mileage. Available on tires purchased in the U.S. and Canada, the warranty covers the tire for a maximum of two years from the date of purchase.
