In line with Trelleborg’s commitment to helping secure a sustainable future for farming, while boosting the efficiency and productivity of our customers’ farming operations, the ProgressiveTraction® technology releases additional power to the ground and reduces stress on the soil, while improving a machine's road travel performance.”
The second edition of the 'Hevea Awards', sponsored and organized by EuroPneus, the Spanish magazine, which specializes in tires for all professionals in the sector, aims to value and recognize the work done by those that are part of the automotive and specialty tires aftermarket industry. This revolves around the tire, a vital part of safety and the environment.
The ProgressiveTraction® tread design was conceived to tackle the requirements of the latest generation of machinery, increasing power transmission efficiency to the ground while reducing soil compaction. At the same time, the double-edge-lug tread design was developed to reduce vibration, lowering energy dissipation, minimizing fuel consumption, as well as extending service life. Testing revealed that the tire has achieved up to 3% less fuel consumption and up to 5% longer tire service life.
