BKT launches new Agrimax V-Flecto sizes

BKT has launched four new sizes for its Agrimax V-Flecto tyre, bringing its offering for this tyre to 22 sizes.

A new size is already available and a further three are being developed and will soon join the 18 existing sizes. The new size is VF 710/70 R 42 which will soon be followed by VF 750/70 R 44, VF 710/75 R 38 and VF 710/55 R 38.

BKT says the Agrimax V-Flecto makes it possible to maximise loads without changing tyre pressure, regardless of speed, managing to carry 40 per cent more weight than a standard tyre of the same size and with the same recommended rim.

At the same time soil compaction is reduced thanks to a wider footprint area and a 10 per cent wider tread. It is also 10 per cent more durable than the standard equivalent, BKT says.

The ultra-resistant casing and the special strengthened bead allow Agrimax V-Flecto to exploit all the tractor’s potential both in the field and on the road, where it can also reach high speeds.

It is the first BKT tyre which makes use of NRO (Narrow Rim Option) Technology, conforming to the standards recorded by the European Tire and Rim Technology Organisation (ETRTO). This marking makes it possible to use standard rims and not dedicated rims which are instead needed for VF tyres of the same size.
