Yokohama Tire recently announced that its GEOLANDAR X-MT tire has won the 2019 Red Dot award in the Product Design category.
This is the second time that the aggressive off-road X-MT tire has been recognized with a prestigious award. It has also won the GOOD DESIGN award in December last year.
Launched in July 2018, the X-MT is currently available in 15 sizes, from 17-inch to 24-inch rim diameters with outside diameters up to 40 inches. The extreme mud terrain is equipped with a tenacious grip and features a rugged look. Its treadwear and on-road handling helps in delivering a better balance of performance and value to all consumers —from rock-crawlers to truck enthusiasts.
“We’re very proud of the GEOLANDAR X-MT and extremely honoured to win the Red Dot award,” says Andrew Briggs, Yokohama’s Vice President of Marketing and Product Management.
