Michelin presents the new CargoXBib heavy duty tyre range for agricultural trailers
Michelin has developed the new CargoXBib Heavy Duty tyre for farmers looking for reliability and stability while using heavily loaded agricultural trailers on the road and in the field.
The trailer tyre gives farmers professional efficiency and comfort, with the first size to be available from November 2015. This new generation tyre extends the CargoXBib range and is an additional offering to the CargoXBib High Flotation tyre with Ultraflex technology, launched in 2014.
When compared with the previous generation of trailer tyres, the CargoXBib Heavy Duty tyre stands out thanks to its versatility which makes it the perfect fitment for work both on the road and in the field. The tyre carcass and profile have been specifically designed to optimise longevity and driver comfort on roads.
In fields, the CargoXBib Heavy Duty tyre offers excellent slope handling and high load capacity of up to almost 8,330 kg per tyre. The new multi-sided "Tripod" tread pattern improves stability, increasing resistance to wear and enhancing the tyre life cycle.
The alignment of the "Tripod" tread blocks and their alternating pattern promotes self-cleaning. At the same time, tread block linkages limit wear caused by twisting, whilst massive rounded shoulders protect the vegetation and simplify handling on hard ground. The tread design is also flat and large, maximising the ground contact patch to reduce soil compaction and increase traction.
The CargoXBib Heavy Duty tyre was designed in partnership with equipment manufacturers, and will be available to specify as original equipment. The tyre will be available for agricultural trailers, implements and general agricultural machinery, in three sizes: 560/60 R22.5 from November 2015, 560/45 R22.5 from July 2016 and 500/60 R22.5 from August 2016.
