Audi introduces Falken AZENIS RS820 as option for its new

Audi’s new S3 is the first vehicle to leave its factory with Falken’s super-ultra high-performance (SUHP) tyre, the AZENIS RS820. Owing to its standard quattro all wheel drive plus torque splitter, Audi’s compact sports car delivers 333 HP and 420 Nm torque – demanding a high-performance tyre such as Falken’s most advanced SUHP pattern.

The Falken AZENIS RS820 was designed with accurate handling, stability and control under all driving conditions in mind. The AZENIS RS820 features an asymmetric tread pattern with four circumferential tread grooves. An improved shoulder design offers increased contact with the road and enhanced lateral stability on dry roads.

The tyre draws on the latest compound and construction technologies derived from Falken’s motorsport developments such as its hybrid aramid reinforcement material. An optimised belt ply provides an even pressure distribution, allowing for a dynamic driving experience with improved safety.

The circumferential tread ribs of the AZENIS RS820 not only provide improved lateral grip while cornering, but also ensure stable straight-line stability. The grooves are wide and deep to displace water and prevent aquaplaning.

Tread design and construction are but one striking aspect of Falken’s latest and highest performing product, the other being the Advanced 4D NANO Design technology used to create compounds with lower wear rates and offer a longer lifespan. With weight also a key factor when it comes to high-performance vehicles, Falken’s engineers explored all weight-saving possibilities – both in construction and compound.

The overall result provides robust driving properties across a broad range of a road surfaces and conditions, both wet and dry. Falken supplies the 235/35 R19 tyres fitted to both the S3 Sportback and the S3 Saloon manufactured in Ingolstadt, Germany.

“We are proud that our new AZENIS RS820 is the first choice for the new Audi S3,” says Christian Stolting, OE Sales Director at Falken Tyre Europe. “Right from the start, we aimed at designing a tyre that combines dynamic driving, agile handling and a powerful performance. AZENIS RS820 meets the strict requirements of Audi’s enthusiastic engineers and showcases Falken’s abilities in the SUHP range.”

Falken has already introduced 38 sizes of the AZENIS RS820 model to the European market. Other sizes are coming soon.
