Bkt unveils new farming tires at Fima

BKT and San José Neumáticos unveiled a new range of products during the last edition of Fima held in Spain last February. First of all, the brand new V-FLEXA, a radial flotation tire designed for agricultural trailers. Thanks to VF (Very High Flexion) technology, this product enables the transport of heavy loads at a 30% lower inflation pressure compared to a standard tire of the same size. V-FLEXA comes with steel belts, which guarantee greater resistance to the casing, while the weight is perfectly distributed thanks to the extra-large contact area. Other two products on display were equally designed for agricultural trailers, namely RM 500 (size 500/85 R 24) and Ridemax FL 693 M (size 500/50 R 17). The first is the ideal radial tire for harvesting operations. Its strong casing and the special tread design provide high load capacity as well as high cut and chip resistance. Ridemax FL 693 M, instead, has been created as a good solution for daily travel on the road and for combined use with agricultural trailers, tank trucks and spreaders. However, also the brand’s best-known products, such as the AGRIMAX tire range for farming tractors, could not be missing from the stand. The Agrimax V-Flectodisplayed in two sizes VF 600/60 R 30 and VF 710/60 R 42, and Agrimax Force in size IF 710/70 R 42, a high quality BKT product specifically developed for high-power tractors (over 250 HP). Last but not least, Agrimax Teris, displayed in size IF 710/75 R 34 designed for 4WD-high-power tractors.
