Vipal VT560 Now in New Widths


Vipal has announced that its VT560 tread is now available in three new widths, 210, 230 and 240 mm. This new traction design is suitable for mixed use on paved and unpaved roads.

Extension of Size Range for New Traction Design

In order to assure versatile application and good adhesion on different types of terrain, the compound used on the VT560 has been optimised to guarantee excellent resistance to abrasion. Its construction characteristics make it an ideal tread for severe applications, offering great traction power and preventing tyre damage, thereby extending service life.

The pattern features variable depth grooves to keep objects from getting embedded in the tread. Meanwhile, interconnected blocks aim to provide greater resistance and support between the tread base and the block.

Another unique feature of the VT560 is the exclusive Eye Control technology, a wear indicator to identify tyre anomalies and suggest tyre rotation as well as the right time to remove the tyre for retreading.
