International tyre company Vredestein brings its latest Traxion tractor tyres to the French market at SIMA, the Paris International Agribusiness Show (24-28 Feb 2019). The brand will showcase its brand new Traxion65/70 for compact tractors along with the latest sizes in its Traxion Optimall VF range for large tractors. Vredestein´s Traxion range is renowned for its exceptionally longservice life, along with outstanding self-cleaning capacity, low rolling noise and lower fuel consumption.
“It starts with the unique curvature of the tread cleats,” says Ruud Nijland, Divisional Head Sales for agricultural and industrial tyres Europe at Apollo Vredestein.
“The cleats from all our tractor tyres from the Vredestein Traxion range are positioned transversely to the direction of travel in the shoulder – ensuring maximum traction and reduced fuel consumption in the field – and oriented almost in the direction of travel in the middle of the tyre, reducing rolling resistance, noise and vibrations. The space between the cleats increases from the centerline to the shoulder, which means they are not parallel to each other, thereby not allowing the soil to get stuck in-between. But most importantly the special compound of the Traxion tyres offers unmatched wear resistance and extra resistance to damage and punctures, which results in 30% longer service life than competitors’ tyres”.
The Vredestein Traxion 65/70 is an application of the Traxion technology developed for the specific needs of compact tractors typically used in orchards and vineyards, and deployed for public services. The tyre is designed specially with Mediterranean countries in mind and will therefore be of particular interest to SIMA visitors.
Launched in 2017, the Vredestein Traxion Optimall VF (Very High Flexion) is a premium tractor tyre, specially developed after extensive research into the specific needs of tractor users and manufacturers. The Traxion Optimall VF range has recently been expanded with the addition of seven extra sizes, and is now available in a total of ten specifications. The new sizes are the VF 900/60 R 42 NRO, VF 800/70 R 42, VF 800/70 R 38, VF 710/70 R 42,VF 710/60 R 34 NRO, VF 620/75 R 30 and VF 600/70 R 30.
