Your Yokahama Avid Ascend is not a low resistance tire.
Ah, I beg to differ. Are you stating fact or opinion?
I can use the facts:
the coasting test is the same as it was on ecopia, from 60 to 30 MPH it goes .7mi[/list]
the universal coding on sidewall lists treadwear 800, cheap crap is around 400[/list]
a 100 mile trip at 66 MPH had over 20 mi remaining on GOM, and getting about 4mi/kWh[/list]
I'm stating facts. Validated with different set of wheels and tires.
Your coasting test doesn't have enough data to draw a conclusion.
Try spending more effort on your methodology.
- Find a road, at least 10 miles long with some rolling hills.
- Ensure outdoor temperature doesn't fluctuate more than ~10 degrees.
- Repeat this exercise 3-4 times and record average kWh consumption.
Based on my data, crappy Ecopia is the gold-standard in rolling resistance.
Standard all-season tire (e.g., Michelin, Bridgestone, Goodyear, Yokohama): 3.4 kWh
Low resistance Ecopia EP422 plus: 4.2 kWh
