Falken Azenis FK510
The Falken Azenis FK510 is an ultra high performance tyre. It features an innovative new compound designed with safety in mind.
The Azenis FK510 uses Adaptive Constant Pressure (ACP) technology. This distributes pressure evenly throughout the tyre’s footprint. As a result, stability, driving dynamics and braking performance are all improved.
In addition to this, the Azenis FK510’s tread pattern features rounded shoulder contours, wide grooves around the circumference and a pattern of blade sipes. This tread design helps to cut through water on the road surface and prevent aquaplaning.
Falken have also applied 4D nano design technology to the Azenis FK510, which gives it superior grip and improves its wear life.
EU tyre label authorities have rated the Falken Azenis FK510 between C and E for fuel efficiency (depending on tyre size). It received an A rating for wet braking.
