WORLD PREMIERE OF FIRST FLOTATION TYRE WITH VF TECHNOLOGY - TYRE INNOVATION AT ITS BEST
Alliance 389 VF, the 1st flotation tyre in the world with VF technology: flotation + VF characteristics ‘all in one’
Both flotation tyres and VF technology stand for revolutionary innovations in the global tyre industry. Just by themselves, each one of these two innovations brought decisive improvements for agricultural machinery – in terms of soil protection and efficiency alike – and ATG’s tyre development engineers decisively contributed to these achievements in both cases.
By combining these two innovative approaches, however, Alliance Tire Group now indeed presents tyre innovation at its best.
Whilst flotation tyres generally ensure more efficient soil protection due to reduced soil pressure, Very High (VF) flexion tyres offer the additional advantage of a greater load carrying capacity at the same tyre pressure as a conventional flotation tyre, or carrying the same load with a markedly reduced tyre pressure – thus further reducing the risk of soil compaction.
LEADERS IN THE FLOTATION RADIAL MARKET
Alliance tyres are already recognised as leaders in the global Flotation Radial market.
The fact that innovative patterns such as Alliance 380 and Alliance 390 are used by some of the most prestigious trailer and machinery manufacturers in Europe, clearly shows that these tyres are highly appreciated in the industry.
The world premiere of the Alliance 389 VF now opens the next round of innovation: the first Very High Flexion Flotation tyre offers the possibility to be either operated at 30 per cent lower tyre pressure or with 30 per cent more load at the same pressure as a conventional flotation tyre.
By means of this outstanding innovation, Alliance Tire Group is able to provide high-performance tyres which allow trailer tyres to mirror the pressure of VF tyres on today’s high horsepower tractors, thus significantly reducing foot print pressure and resulting soil compaction during agricultural operations – which in turn allows to maintain soil fertility and high yield potentials.
NEW ALLIANCE 389 VF TYRE TO BE LAUNCHED IN VARIOUS SIZES
Starting with the launch of the Alliance 389 VF series at SIMA in Paris in February 2017, different sizes are expected to be launched throughout the year. Amongst other sizes, this will include VF 650/55R26.5 in June 2017, VF 600/55R26.5 and VF 750/45R26.5 in August and various other sizes in the months to come.
