Larger footprint for Michelin TrailXBib

The VF (Very High Flexion) casing and deeper specially-designed tread on the TrailXBib lead to a significant improvement in tyre life compared to the CargoXBib range, says Michelin.

Designed for trailers, spreaders and slurry tankers, the use of Ultraflex technology on the TrailXBib results in a larger footprint which, says the company, keeps ground compaction to a minimum.

The new tyres carry more load than the same dimension of CargoXBib HD or HF and at a reduced pressure. This helps to reduce the stress into the structure of the trailer, says the company.

Other TrailXBib features include improved road handling, and the new tread pattern with wide inter-lugs results in good self-cleaning capabilities with fewer closed areas for soil to accumulate.

Fully compatible with central tyre inflation systems, the new tyres are initially available in two sizes (VF 560/60 R22.5 and VF 650/55 R26.5) from July. Additional sizes are planned for 2021.
