Nokian Tyres launches a test-winning VF tractor tire and VF flotation tire for efficient farming at Agritechnica 2023 in November
Wed October 18 10:00 AM 2023 in category Company news
Nokian Tyres Flexforce® VF is a unique new tire technology that enables more efficient agricultural work by creating an XXL-sized ground contact and by reducing loss of power. The first tractor tire utilizing this technology is Nokian Tyres Soil King VF, which has already proven to be ahead of competition in third-party tests. A new flotation tire for high-capacity tankers and trailers, Nokian Tyres Float King VF, complements the Flexforce VF range. Nokian Tyres is proud to present the new tires as well as the existing range of special tires at the agricultural trade fair Agritechnica 2023 in Hanover, 12–18 November.
To make the most out of long working days, farmers today need power and scale. With high power and high capacity comes the challenge of improving productivity and reducing cost, which is also the sustainable way to go. At Agritechnica, the highlight of the Nokian Tyres stand are the two tire models utilizing Nokian Tyres Flexforce VF – a brand-new tire technology that combines strength with high flexibility for the most efficient XXL-size ground contact with improved energy efficiency.
“The Flexforce VF technology brings the advanced design and premium features that the farmers have been asking for to agricultural tires,” says Tero Saari, Product Manager at Nokian Tyres.
Introducing two new tires for efficient farming
Nokian Tyres Soil King VF is the first tire for high-powered tractors utilizing the new Flexforce VF tire technology. It has been tested by the highly regarded DLG, or Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft. The comparison against other premium agricultural tires proved its best-in-class performance in field and transport work with lower wheel slip and fuel consumption as well as a larger treated area per hour.
Nokian Tyres Float King VF is a new tire for high-capacity trailers and tankers utilizing the Flexforce tire technology. It has proven exceptional efficiency with flotation and grip in challenging soil conditions.
“The results are clear: Nokian Tyres VF tires save fuel and increase working efficiency,” Saari says. “It is great to go public with cutting-edge tire technology that makes the difference where it matters most: in the daily work of farmers.”
