                  Avon AV72 Cobra Rear Tire

                  With its unique snakeskin sidewalls, an aggressive tread pattern and low noise emission the Cobra silently defeats all roads that stand in its path. Advanced manufacturing techniques used in Avon's successful sporty Viper range have been adapted and applied to the Cobra series. WCTA - Wide Custom Tread Arc - is Avon's new tire profile that gives Cobra a nimble characteristic once reserved only for agile race-bred bikes, all without disrupting all-important stability. A-VBD - Advanced-Variable Density Belt - improves handling in the much wider Cobra sizes. This construction technology utilizes a jointless belt of ultra-strong material. Above the carcass, these strands are wound closely together at the tire's centre for increased stability and wear resistance. Towards the tire's edges the fibers are then progressively spaced out to allow the tire to take on a multi-compound effect as the tire leans. An aggressive tread pattern features FFG - Force Following Grooves - to follow the exact direction of forces that are transferred through the tire. These channels in the tire's surface significantly reduce irregular and advanced wear on bikes that carry heavy loads. Each Cobra rear tire also features the distinctive snake's head logo on the sidewall.

                  Available in a wide range of sizes, incorporating fitments for Harley Davidson's V-Rod, Triumph's Rocket III, Honda's Goldwing and Valkyrie plus some sizes for custom bike applications.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I have owned I can't believe these tire made on my Softail changing from the OE tires. Turning is now smooth, i see a huge difference, must be the rounded tire profiles and the compound holds so well. Brought them almost to the edge on my first spring ride, got caught in the rain then the the asphalt was cold and they performed awesome, also got lines cement highway, no tracking at all. I have never been too excited about tires, had Dunlops, Michelin, Metzlers (good tores too) but these make my Softail feel so much better and grip so well that I can't wait to go out and ride again! Pictures just to show i leaned them pretty good and they grip well (yeah of course will lean them to the end on the next ride on a hot summer day ;-) Sorry filthy bike, got caught in the rain.

                  Rated 4 out of 5 by from 240 mm Club here I come Bought tire for the future as price point for a 240 was great. Visually the tire is great, far better rubber thickness than my original stock Metzler. Very nice looking pattern as well as side wall look (although not a lot of sidewall on this particular tire) Can't wait to wear out the old and run the NEW!

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tire for the Rocket 3 This is my second set of Avon's on my Triumph Rocket 3 and I can't see me changing brands anytime soon. I was able to get 16,000km out of my last rear riding 2up 80% of the time. The front has 20,000km on it now and i expect it to last another 4-6000km. I have never slipped a wheel, wet or dry. When I launch hard the bike would rather lift the front end than spin out. Perfect!

                  The letter is the speed rating. H is for a max of 210km/h and V is for 270km/h.

                  My front tire is a MH 90-21 M/C 54H. What is the match size for an Avon AV 71 Cobra tire.

                  Asked by: Dwayne
                  MH is the numeric size for 80. So the indicated tire size would be 80/90-21.

                  Hello there, I bought a 200/70-15 and my eyes don’t want to read the little print on the tire.. What is the recommended air pressure?  

                  Asked by: Quincey5of13
                  Tires only have the maximum pressure on them. You need to get the recommended pressure from the bike manufacturer.
