Davanti hails ‘winning’ Autopromotec launch
The new Davanti brand, which distributor Oak Tyres launched at Autopromotec in Bologna at the end of May reportedly received “rave reviews” from contacts and customers.
With impressive EU labels boasting strong wet-grip performance and consistently low noise ratings across the range, visitors and exhibitors alike were eager to see the tyres for first time.
Wilson Zhang vice-general manager of Davanti said: “The launch at Autopromotec couldn’t have gone better, the reception was great and there was a real buzz about the brand throughout the event. Our Performance Centre Network is growing and the orders are flying in. We’re really excited, the future’s bright for Davanti.”
Early customer feedback is said to have been “exceptional”. For example, Darren Crookes from Tyre Doctor in Sunderland said: “The Davanti DX640’s I recently fitted to my Seat Leon are the best tyres I’ve ever tried. The all weather grip provided a really responsive drive, particularly when cornering. They gave me total confidence, there’s no movement at all even going round roundabouts. The dynamic design also minimises noise for a really smooth ride. They look great as well which is a bonus!”
The brand launched with the release of the Davanti DX640 and DX390. The DX640 is an ultra-high performance passenger and SUV tyre dynamically designed for maximum grip, and the DX390 is a high performance tyre offering a fuel efficient and comfortable drive.
The DX640 and DX390 will be available in a range of sizes and fitments and will be closely followed by the DX420, designed specifically for Hackney Carriages and the DX440 a rugged van tyre to be released later in the year.
According to the company, each Davanti tyre design has been carefully developed using a combination of 3D computerised simulation, track testing and in-house testing laboratory.
