The future is here

The tires that BKT showcased at Agritechnica in this 2019 edition have one common denominator: “technology” and the purpose is to respond to farmers’ needs of today and tomorrow. In particular, BKT    has decided to focus on soil protection, an essential element for a “careful” production. At Agritechnica, the company came out with three novelties: FL 633 Performa  (in this picture) designed for agro trucks in addition to V-Flexa and Ridemax FL 699 designed for trailers and agricultural implement. First of all, FL 633 Performa (displayed in size 600/50 R 22.5) specifically engineered for agro trucks. It is an innovative solution that enhances both tractor and truck performance features to meet the special needs of modern farming. Thanks to its ultra-resistant structure, extraordinary load capacity, and excellent durability, FL 633 Performa marks the future of flotation tires that are perfect for multiple activities in the fields and even for travel on highways reaching up to 100 km/h. Then V-Flexa, a latest-generation flotation product featuring VF (Very High Flexion) technology, which enables the transport of heavy loads with an inflation pressure that is 30% less than that of a standard tire of the same size. This tire combines VF technology with a tread equipped with steel belts conferring greater resistance to the carcass and therefore to impacts. V-Flexa has three additional steel-belted layers of HD (Heavy Duty) steel and features a super-resistant sidewall for further improved performance and was launched in size VF 600/55 R 26.5. Last but not least, Ridemax FL 699 in size 24 R 20.5, perfect for road applications with trailers and tank trucks thanks to the reinforced bead that ensures better stability even at high speeds. It also ensures an extraordinarily comfortable ride providing safety and driving control. Even if this radial tire has been designed for a 90% on-the-road usage, it also ensures excellent performance in the fields. It has been designed with a particular focus on load capacity to decrease the number of transport cycles.
