Avon Tyres has launched its latest sport-touring tyres, the Avon Spirit ST, in Portimao earlier this month. The newly appointed brand ambassador, Steve Parrish attended the launch and tested the new tyre. The motorcycle racer turned television commentator has raced on Avon tyres throughout his classic racing career. The manufacturer’s launch video for the tyre is available on Tyrepress.com.

The Spirit ST is the successor to Avon’s Storm 3D range and has been designed to provide excellent levels of wet grip, together with ultra-high performance handling. Featuring what Avon calls a radical new tread pattern, the Spirit ST uses the latest high-silica synthetic rubber compounds for improved mileage.

Avon adds that its engineers have enhanced the performance of their flagship sport-touring tyre, so much so that the new Spirit ST is designated as a hypersport touring tyre – offering stability and grip in all riding conditions.

Parrish states: “I’m a very patriotic person, and the tyres are made down in Melksham. It’s a close-knit group of people who are very much passionate about what they do. They make a product that’s a world-wide product, it’s as good as anything else out there. It’s lovely to see a small community, a small group of people, working so hard and coming up with such a great product.”
