The EnduComfort CA has been designed and developed in Europe by Apollo Tyres’ in-house R&D operation and is being produced at Hungary.
Apollo Tyres is launching its first coach tyre, the all-new EnduComfort CA, which delivers premium levels of mileage, durability and all-weather grip, as well as superior standards of comfort for passengers and drivers.
The EnduComfort CA has been designed and developed in Europe by Apollo Tyres’ in-house R&D operation and is being produced at its manufacturing plant in Hungary. In developing the tyre, Apollo Tyres has drawn upon its capabilities and reach in the global haulage market.
Developed for medium- and long-distance use, the new EnduComfort CA tyre features an advanced tread compound and a reinforced casing, which together help to minimise abrasion, ensure cooler running and safeguard even patterns of wear. The result is high levels of durability – 1.9 times greater than the EU minimum requirement – and mileage performance which is consistent with coach tyres from established premium-brand manufacturers. It has also been certified for all-weather grip with the ‘three-peak mountain snowflake’ insignia.
Affordability across the full lifecycle has been taken into account during the development process. As well as ensuring the EnduComfort CA is available at an accessible price point, Apollo Tyres has given the tyre a tension-optimised ply casing engineered to facilitate re-treading, to further maximise serviceable life. Apollo Tyres says the EnduComfort CA will, therefore, represent the best value for money in the European coach segment.
The EnduComfort CA’s innovative tread design features unique zigzag grooves to deliver superior standards of grip in wet and snowy conditions, while groove base protectors offer enhanced protection against stone penetration. The tread pattern and compound have also been developed to help minimise noise, aiding comfort for passengers.
The new Apollo coach tyre is manufactured in Europe and is available in 295/80 R22.5 dimensions.
Apollo Tyres already has a presence across all European countries and more than 500 partners offering distribution and support requirements, and this infrastructure will be harnessed to support the rollout of the new coach tyre.
