Davanti Tyres increases UHP choice with Protoura Sport

Davanti Tyres’ Ultra-High Performance tyre range has taken a massive leap forward following the launch of its Protoura Sport range.

The development of the premium pattern in addition to Davanti’s existing DX640 UHP product means drivers in the growing UHP market have more choice than ever.

“With Protoura Sport we have taken the latest in tyre engineering innovation and created a new benchmark in our UHP offering,” said Davanti’s Development Director Gary Cross.

“This has been designed and tested to complement the performance characteristics of the most powerful, finely-tuned road cars.

“Davanti’s European Development Centre at IDIADA and our partners at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portimão have been engaged to explore new limits of driving, handling and braking performance and to refine the feeling of connection between the driver, the vehicle and the road.

“It has also been subjected to independent mileage testing by DEKRA to ensure that this is a performance tyre which will last.”

The impressive Protoura Sport is Davanti’s premium UHP offer and will sit alongside its original DX640 UHP.

With 126 sizes and a track record for performance in both UHP and SUV applications, the DX640 range Davanti will continue to develop providing drivers with a real choice in the UHP category.

“The DX640 remains an important part of the Davanti family,” said Gary. “It is a tyre with a different performance profile.

“Protoura Sport has been engineered for highly tuned sports cars or supercars with a focus on high- speed performance and enhancing driver feedback. The DX640 couples proven high-speed track pedigree with comfort.

“Drivers have very different preferences,” said Gary. “For some, performance is everything. They want the sharp braking and handling characteristics. Others are looking for a tyre that offers a comfortable ride but is sharp and responsive whenever called upon.

“With Protoura Sport and the DX640, every driver can choose the right Davanti tyre for them.”
