Mitas introduces largest Super Flexion Tire

Prague, November 7, 2017 – Mitas, a member of the Trelleborg Group, continues to expand its agricultural SFT (Super Flexion Tires) product range. At Agritechnica 2017, Mitas will introduce its largest tire yet, the 1250/50R32 SFT 194A8/191B TL, now with higher load capacity.

The sheer size of this tire is imposing – The Mitas 1250/50R32 SFT 194A8/191B TL weighs 580 kg and contains 76.5 m² of cord material. It has a diameter of 2.02 m and is capable of carrying loads of up to 16.5 tons (at 10 km/h). The tire volume is an impressive 2.3 m³, making it one of the largest agriculture tires available.

“We now offer our largest 1250/50R32 SFT tires in two versions, differing by load capacity, thus expanding the SFT product line. This year, we added five new tire sizes in this line: 900/70R32 CHO, 800/70R38 CHO, 680/80R42, 680/80R38 CHO, and 620/75R30 IMP,” said Mitas agricultural tires Product Manager, Pavel Kott.

“Mitas stands for reliable performance” continued Kott, “The SFT product line currently consists of 34 tire sizes and versions. These tires are primarily designed for high-horsepower combine harvesters, tractors, and grain trucks. These tires are produced in our manufacturing facility in Charles City, Iowa, and they are primarily used in the USA.”

Mitas will be displaying the 1250/50R32 SFT 194A8/191B TL tire at the Agritechnica fair (stand B04, hall 20) between November 12- 18 2017.
