Apollo Tyres has launched two new tyres for both tractor units and trailers.
The new EnduRace RA 2 gets a revised tread design and more premium materials to improve both grip and handling. The new tyres are said to be more durable than the previous generation and to have a lower rolling resistance. Apollo claims they will have a 5% increase in mileage and have a 10% increase in roling resistance and traction when compared to the previous generation of tyres.
The new EnduRace RA 2s also get a three-peak mountain snowflake stamp on their walls to show their ability to cope with poor weather, including snow. A new trailer tyre has also been developed to cater for European long-distance work. Called the EnduMile LHT, the tyre is said to be Apollo’s most durable and fuel-efficient truck-sector tyre to date. In a first for Apollo truck tyres, it also has an A-rating for rolling resistance.
The two new tyres are on display along side a new EnduRace RT2 trailer tyre which has had a new 385/55 size added to its range.
