Davanti Tyres, the UK’s leading mid-range tyre brand, has launched its first all-season passenger car tyre, the Alltoura 4-Seasons. The brand new all-season passenger car tyre has been engineered to provide uncompromising performance whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter.
After rigorous development in both summer and winter conditions at recognised industry leading proving grounds, the Alltoura 4-Seasons delivers a leading performance and balances key technical attributes of winter and summer tyres to deliver an all-round strong cross-climate tyre, without the traditional trade off in performances. Key features include:
Directional tread pattern to ensure reliable winter traction
Specially-formulated compound to deliver an engaging drive with safe and stable performance across a range of temperatures experienced with the changing seasons.
Intelligent sipe design to allow for efficient clearing of water and extra grip on snow and ice while maintaining tread block stability on dry roads ensuring driver focused, enjoyable driving characteristics.
The engineering innovations allow the Alltoura 4-Seasons tyres to tackle snow and icy surfaces, as well as giving superior grip on wet and dry surfaces. The advanced silica compound delivers traction and longevity for year-round lasting performance, providing an economical and practical tyre and removing the need to change between summer and winter tyres.
Davanti Tyres general manager Peter Cross said: “It’s great to bring a new, innovative all-season passenger car tyre to the market which offers year-round lasting performance. The team have worked incredibly hard to take it from concept to market and we’re excited to present a tyre which can react and adapt to the varying climate conditions, offering limitless possibilities. It’s also important we’ve created a product which gives consumers an economical option whilst providing confidence, thanks to its credentials and our rigorous testing process.”
Davanti’s Alltoura 4-Seasons tyres have been stringently tested in summer conditions at the New Davanti European Development Centre, Applus+ IDIADA Proving Ground in Spain, as well as comprehensive winter testing at UTAC Ivalo (part of the Millbrook Group) in Finland. The tyres are also Three Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMSF) certified, which make them legally approved to be driven in countries with winter tyre legislation.
Ray Collier, Director of TREAD (Tyre Research Engineering and Development Ltd), said:
“The focus for the Alltoura 4-Seasons development has been to build on the leading performance and driver involvement of the Protoura Sport tyre and deliver an uncompromised safe and enjoyable product.
“To create a tyre that delivers a true all season performance without a bias towards either winter or summer has been both challenging and demanding. The work that has gone into the development is clear when you first drive the new Alltoura 4-Seasons tyre – it is immediately obvious that the driver focus for dry conditions has not been sacrificed and the linear steering response makes the tyre involving and rewarding to drive. The rolling comfort and cabin noise blend perfectly to create a comfortable ride and the V groove pattern and newly developed compound really shine through in winter conditions, with a secure handling balance giving confidence in demanding conditions.
“It’s been a long but immensely enjoyable and rewarding tyre to test and develop and the final result is a tyre that any company would be proud to have in their portfolio, a true AllSeason tyre.”
This is the first all-season passenger car tyre developed by Davanti and adds to its ever-growing portfolio including the Vantoura 4-Seasons developed for commercial vans, with Davanti’s commitment to development and testing unwavering.
