Vredestein’s Traxion Optimall VF (Very High Flexion) tyre has won a gold medal at LAMMA 2019, UK’s largest farm machinery, equipment and services show, in recognition of its stand out attributes including traction, fuel efficiency, productivity and reduced total cost of ownership.
The Traxion Optimall’s gold medal in the “Driven Innovation” category of the awards, was awarded by a panel of 13 industry experts judging over 50 competitors, recognising it as a ground-breaking product.
The LAMMA show is renowned in the industry for providing a platform for exhibitors to introduce new, pioneering products and services, with its associated Innovation Awards recognising advances in agricultural machinery, equipment and services that are sustainable, practical and progressive.
Summing up the Traxion Optimall’s gold medal win, the LAMMA judges said it “features new technology to achieve lower pressures and provides long-term benefits to both customers’ bottom line and soil health, due to lower compaction and improved fuel consumption.”
A premium tractor tyre, the revolutionary Traxion Optimall makes the most of Vredestein’s F+ technology, which combines exceptional flexibility with stability. Its footprint is up to 15% larger, at equal pressure, than other leading VF tyres and 25% more than leading Increased Flexion (IF) tyres currently on the market.
Along with improved traction and fuel economy and reduced soil compaction, another major advantage is its suitability for use with central tyre inflation systems (CTIS).
