The Azenis FK453 has the daunting task of replacing one of Falken’s flagship tyres: The talented FK452. Its ambition: Provide more driving fun and efficiency for sports driving enthusiasts.

Launched in 2006, the FK452 is highly reputed in certain sports car communities.  Falken’s communication strategy, highly focused on drift and motor sports in general, largely contributes to this reputation.




Driving pleasure is paramount
The Azenis FK453 has been specially designed for the European market. This means that when drafting the specification, Falken integrated a set of driving criteria relating to the use European sports car owners make of their vehicle.   

Certain performances such as wet braking and grip received special attention.

Building on its motor sports experience, Falken has found a good balance in terms of performance, with the priority being given to driving fun.

Track developed
To deliver performance and precision for sporty driving, the Azenis FK453 has been tested on various race circuits, notably at Nürburgring.

The German circuit played a key role in finalising this tyre. So much so that one of the technologies used bears its nameNUR-Spec. This name refers to a reinforced structure incorporating nylon to improve rigidity and driving feel.

Compared with the FK452, this structure offers a larger contact area and significantly improves tyre performances, particularly in terms of wet handling and braking.

The tread design allows efficient water deflection. Furthermore, it has been optimised to achieve satisfactory noise levels.
