Yokohama Tires announced that two of its tires were among the winners of the Chicago Athenaeum’s 2019 Good Design Awards. The two tires recognized are the GEOLANDAR X-CV tire for high-performance crossover SUVs and the Geolandar X-AT tire for SUVs and pickup trucks.
The Geolandar X-CV is a new highway terrain tire developed specifically for the increasingly popular midsize and large monocoque-structure high-performance crossover SUVs that emphasize high-speed performance and drivability.
The Geolandar X-AT is a tire developed to meet the needs of drivers who want to tune and dress up their vehicles for off-road driving while maintaining on-road driving comfort. In addition to its distinctly rugged appearance as an off-road tire capable of delivering an outstanding performance in the most challenging conditions, the Geolandar X-AT delivers a comfortable on-road ride performance.
The Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award, established in 1950, is the world’s oldest and most prestigious worldwide design award. It is organized by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. Candidate products are judged by experts who evaluate products from diverse perspectives, including design, use of new technologies, materials and function.
