New Vredestein Traxion 65 reduces ‘in-cabin’ noise by 29%
Vredestein will introduce a new tractor tyre at Agritechnica, the Vredestein Traxion 65. As the successor to the popular Traxion+, the Traxion 65 incorporates new technologies derived from the development of the flagship VF tyre, the Traxion Optimall. The foundation for the development of the tread design is the proven Traxion concept with its recognisable curved lug shape.
The extra-large contact area in the centre of the tread of the Traxion 65 ensures continuous road contact for a comfortable ride. As in-cabin noise together with vibrations are increasingly seen as the main comfort factors by professional drivers, Vredestein decided to have its tyres tested for in-cabin noise against one of its main premium European competitors. The test conducted at an RDW test track (ISO certified: ISO10844:2014) came to a lower in-cabin noise of up to 29% compared to its premium competitor. These exceptionally low sound levels will give a new degree of comfort to tractor drivers using the Traxion 65. And drive-by noise, important for local communities when agricultural traffic frequently passes through populated areas, was also tested to be 22% better.

The new Traxion 65 integrates all the benefits of the popular Vredestein Traxion+ tyre. This includes the transverse and non-parallel lugs on the outside of the tread, which provides superb traction and excellent self-cleaning, especially on heavier soil types.
In addition to extraordinary comfort and traction, the Traxion 65 has at least a 30% longer lifespan compared to its other premium competitors thank to the unique tread compound and the lug surface in the centre.
The first popular sizes 650/65R42 and the 650/65R38 with their corresponding front tyre sizes can be expected to be available on the market in February 2020.
