Agricultural Tyres and Technology

Flexibility and robustness – qualities shared by farmers

Agricultural tyres have to master a variety of challenges, including switching from the road to the field with varying loads and at different speeds. Tyres with VF technology (very high flexion) are robust, durable all-rounders that remain drivable at low air pressure. They can carry greater loads with less soil compaction due to a larger contact surface area. The materials and construction of VF tyres strike a perfect balance between flexibility and robustness.

VF Technology

VF technology is available with our superior tire line (VF TractorMasterVF TractorMaster Hybrid and VF CombineMaster).

  • Carries the same load as standard tyres at 40% less inflation pressure, or 40% more load at the same pressure
  • Optimised bead geometry improves the tyres’ deflection and reduces the compression of the sidewall rubber
  • Widend belt and shoulder area ensures improved load distribution and thus greater durability
  • N.flex technology unfurls its full potential in VF tyres

    

Our new lugs refuse to give way: they firmly grip the ground beneath the tyre to keep driving the tractor forward without slipping. The larger surface area enhances the mileage and further special touches make high performance and extremely robust tyres adapted to each specific application. d.fine is available with our superior (VF TractorMaster & VF CombineMaster) and advanced tyre lines TractorMaster and CombineMaster.

  • Deep overlap of lugs ensure a comfortable ride and less vibrations on the road
  • 5% more lug surface ensure a high traction in the field and better mileage on the road
  • Sturdy blocks enhance the stability and strength in the field and minimise cracks
  • Smooth linkage between block and base enhance the stress and damage resistance and ensure a good self-cleaning capability - and therefore traction

The bead is essential to a tyre, because it’s what keeps it on the rim. Made of a single piece of wire, our beads are sturdy, compact, and keep their shape.

  • Bead core made of a single piece of steel for better bead endurance and better mountability
  • Short medium-rubber apex for greater bead endurance and high deflection performance of the sidewall

  • Used on our Standard (Tractor85 and Tractor70) and Advanced (TractorMaster and rear CombineMaster) Agriculture tyres.
  • Bead core made of a single piece of steel for better bead endurance and better mountability
  • ​Short medium-rubber apex for greater bead endurance and high deflection performance of the sidewall

  • Hexa bead technology is developed especially for the front wheels of combine harvesters
  • No slippage on rim due to strong and compact bead core which ensures high torque from rim to tyre
  • Bead core made of a single piece of steel for better bead endurance and better mountability

The carcass‘ patent-pending material is flexible enough to absorb impact and then returning to its original shape without permanent deformation. Thus ensures long-term robustness and rounder tyres for a comfortable ride. Vastly reduced flat spots means an end to bumpy drives in the morning.

  • High impact resistance due to high elongation of nylon
  • ​High robustness: carcass structure absorbs impact energy without breaking

Silver medal winner of the Agritechnica innovation award 2022 Agro ContiSeal offers a simple solution to a seemingly small challenge that can create big problems. Our technology features a new polymer which seals punctures caused by foreign objects up to 12mm in diameter and prevents the loss of tyre pressure.
