*High angle directional tread: The tread pattern on ZZ1 helps eject water away from the contact area.
*Bold central rib: This gives the ZZ1 rapid steering response.
*Longitudinal grooves: The longitudinal grooves help resist aquaplaning by allowing water to shoot along them before being cleared by directional grooves.
*Flange protector: To protect alloy rims from curb damage.
*Ultra-Tech rayon casing: Avon's advanced casing construction together with a joint less cap ply gives uniformity and high speed stability.
*Hexiform bead profile: A major step forward in tire design. The hexiform shape evens the bead to rim pressure, ensuring uniform fitment. Dual Radius Tread Arc gives a uniform pressure distribution across the contact patch. Meaning you get even wear and consistent grip. ZZ1 uses a tread compound optimized for wet grip. High structure carbon black molecules help resist UV cracking in tread rubber.
*Opti-Noise technology: Frequency modulated tread blocks, precisely determined using Avon's custom software, give drivers a quiet ride. ZZ1 tires are W speed rated. W-rated tires can handle speeds up to 168 mph (270 km/h) when tested on an indoor test wheel.
