Trailer tire capable of carrying heavy-loads on show at Agritechnica


V-Flexa, a radial tire specifically designed for agricultural trailers, is being unveiled by Indian multinational BKT at Agritechnica

The company’s latest-generation flotation product features VF (Very High Flexion) technology, which enables the transportation of heavy loads with an inflation pressure 30% less than that of a standard tire of the same size.

Also featured is an all-steel structure, that is steel belts that confer resistance to the casing against impacts, punctures or penetration.

The all-steel casing, composed of three additional steel-belted layers of HD (heavy duty) steel, supports heavy loads at low pressure in full safety assisted by a super-resistant sidewall that further enhances performance.

The extra-large contact area provides a perfect weight distribution and is particularly soil-friendly avoiding compaction and preserving the valuable crops.

In addition, BKT will also be displaying its Agrimax V-Flecto in size VF 600/60 R 38, a combination of technologies intended to enhance productivity and performance of latest-generation tractors on any type of terrain.

V-Flexa and Agrimax V-Flecto will be exhibited at the BKT booth at Agritechnica 2019 (Hall 3 Stand B06).
