Apollo Tyres launches Vredestein Flotation Optimall: a VF trailer tyre for optimum soil preservation
Apollo Tyres is introducing a new Vredestein VF Flotation tyre developed to better preserve the soil underneath heavy slurry tankers and agricultural trailers. The new Vredestein Flotation Optimall is a premium tyre solution that raises the bar in terms of soil preservation, grassland-friendliness and self-cleaning.
The Flotation Optimall features a very high flexion (VF) steel belted construction based on the Vredestein’s proven F+ technology. This flexible and strong carcass ensures a large and evenly distributed footprint at low inflation pressure, achieving superior soil preservation. With F+ technology, the Flotation Optimall is compatible with central tyre inflation systems (CTIS).
In the tread zone, smooth and chamfered tread blocks in combination with rounded shoulders preserve the grassland structure, especially while turning on headlands. The directional tread pattern design features unique non-parallel curved blocks towards the outside. This characteristic shape, proven by Apollo Tyres’ renowned Vredestein Traxion tyres, guarantees superb self-cleaning properties on all soil types.
The new Flotation Optimall will be available from spring 2023 onwards in seven sizes:
- VF 710/45 R 22.5 IMP TL 170D
- VF 600/55 R 26.5 IMP TL 170D
