(MENAFN - Arab Times) Takashi Adachi, Managing Director of Falken's Middle East Office talking about this new product quoted "The AZENIS FK453 takes ultra-high performance to a new level delivering exceptional maneuverability, control and grip through significant improvements in handling and reductions in road noise. Falken has incorporated advanced technologies, the competitive personality of motorsports and the legacy of the AZENIS FK453's predecessors to create a benchmark of maximum performance on the roads."

Falken's acclaimed engineering teams have developed the AZENIS FK453 specification, and have tested them on various road conditions and proving grounds. The engineers also gained feedback from Falken's racing drivers who have tested the tires using a variety of cars; resulting in a design that incorporates a more warp resistant casing and additional nylon-reinforced cover ply to increase high-speed stability. This construction is complemented by a rounder tire shoulder, optimizing pressure deployment on the tread area



The AZENIS FK453 provides added confidence behind the wheel, through its three central tread grooves and staggered sipes design which is integrated into the first tread bar on the tire shoulder. The unique tread design helps in reduction of hydro-planning and deflects the water more effectively than most of the conventional tread patterns. In contrast to its predecessors, AZENIS FK453's dry handling ability has been enhanced by 25% whilst handling ability on wet surfaces has been enhanced by 30%, delivering useful gains in control for lane changes and higher speed cornering. A combination of tread pattern and compound changes has led to 8% reduction in braking distance on wet surfaces.

The AZENIS 453's tread has a silica enriched compound that offers a superior traction and grip for those seeking ultra-high performance on both dry & wet roads.

The asymmetric tread pattern of AZENIS FK453 with large outside shoulder blocks not only enhances the cornering grip but also provides a better braking traction.Also, the multiple nylon-reinforced layers allow for better high-speed stability, an important asset based on the driver's exacting demands. AZENIS FK453 also features the latest developments in noise absorption technology. To achieve the lower noise levels now expected by consumers, even those using low profile tires, Falken introduced phase-shifted tread bars. The rounder shoulder contributes to the significantly lower rolling resistance and pass-by noise





Honed by Falken's Global Motorsports Development teams, AZENIS FK453 has already made its international motorsport debut. Falken's UK drift team is using the AZENIS FK453 tire in a bid to retain the championship. Similarly Kuwait's drift enthusiasts and teams are already sporting these tires during their competitions and performances.

Suresh, President of KAPICO Group's global tire business said "Al Ghannam Tires Center Co, the exclusive and principal channel partner for Falken in Kuwait is very excited to welcome Falken's newest summer ultra-high performance tire in AZENIS FK453." He further quoted "AZENIS FK453 is a winner; it sports an aggressive tread design that is going to give you excellent cornering power and better stability in straight line acceleration. It offers a quiet and comfortable ride whether you are driving on the highway or around the town. If you are driving a high-end sports car, this AZENIS FK453 is an excellent option. The AZENIS FK453 line is expected to dominate the replacement tire market for the sports cars and ultra-luxury coupes and sedans.
