V-FLEXA: low pressure, high performance
V-FLEXA is a radial tyre designed by the Indian multinational BKT for agricultural trailers. It is a new generation Flotation model featuring VF (Very High Flexion) technology, which makes it possible to transport heavy loads with a pressure 30% lower than a standard tyre of the same size. The latest addition to the BKT family, the VF 600/55 R 26.5, makes its debut in Hanover. It combines VF technology with a tread equipped with steel belts that improve resistance to punctures and other types of damage, such as - for example - the penetration of foreign bodies. “V-FLEXA - BKT explains with a note - is composed of three layers of Heavy Duty steel belts able to safely support heavy loads at low pressures, while the super-resistant sidewall contributes to even better performance”. Furthermore, the extra-large surface of the V-FLEXA footprint optimizes weight distribution while avoiding soil compaction. In short, V-FLEXA is also a “delicate” tyre that respects crops. But the news from the Indian multinational for Agritechnica does not end there. The BKT stand also features the AGRIMAX V-FLECTO tyres, on show in the VF 600/60 R 38 size, with a technological profile that improves the productivity and performance of the new-generation tractors on all types of terrain.
