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
On top of the carcass, these strands are wound closely together at the tireâ€™s center 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
The channels in the tireâ€™s surface significantly reduce irregular and advanced wear on bikes that carry heavy loads

High mileage great service - Vision Rider
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: 15k and still has plenty of tread for commuting. Miles ahead of OEM tires on a Victory Vision
This is my second set of Cobras on my 09 Vision. The OEM Dunlops went 12k but the Avon Cobras lasted 3k longer with plenty of tread left for commuting and touring. Only reason I changed was an upcoming trip to the Tail of the Dragon. These tires are far superior to the OEM tires in grip, durability and handling. That says a lot for a 900lb touring bike.Even better yet, they cost less than the Dunlop Elite 3s. If you ride like an old man, the Elite 3s maybe your kind of tire, but when I lean into a hard curve I want grip and control. The Avon Cobras handle the ticket Competition Accessories had them at my door step 2 days after my order. You can't beat that. CA is the best price on the net You can't go wrong with CA Keep the shiny side up
Bought the 240/40 18 for my Yamaha Raider and love it. The service here was awesome. Got the tire only 3 days after placing the order. The tire is outstanding. The tread depth is a mile deep, it rides and handles better than anything else! I would absolutely order from Competition Accessories again!!!
Just wanted to add to my previous review; I feel extremely safe with these tires. I can feel my contact patch in both the front and rear tire at great lean angles. I run a '09 V-rod muscle and the rear on this puppy is a 240! It is good to have this kind of rubber keeping me up.
I HAVE RAN THESE FOR ABOUT 5K IN THE TEXAS HILL COUNTRY. ROADS ARE ROUGH. I'M 160 LBS. I HAD TO RUN DUNLOPS FOR MY FIRST 15K DUE TO NO OTHER AVAILABILITY FOR MY '09 V-ROD MUSCLE. WITH THESE I CAN, ACTUALLY, FEEL MY REAR PATCH. I HAD TWO OTHER SETS OF COBRAS ON MY '03 V-ROD. THEY LAST ABOUT 10K BUT HOLD THE WHOLE WAY. I CHANGE AUTOMATICALLY AT 10K, ANYWAY I CAN'T SAY HOW MUCH LONGER THEY COULD GO. GREAT IN WET WEATHER, SNOW, MUD, DIRT AND GRAVEL. VERY SAFE TIRE.
