Vredestein Malaysia has brought in two new products – Vredestein Ultrac and Ultrac Vorti – to the country.
Vredestein Pioneers Exceptional Tyre Products for Customers
“We are so excited to announce the launch of these two patterns from the premium Vredestein range of performance tyres, which we believe would help us gain a foothold in the rapidly growing premium and luxury passenger car segment,” said Area Manager Calvin Yong.
The Vredestein Ultrac, he continued, was a high-performance passenger car tyre with asymmetrical tread pattern. It is said that this tyre has longer life, improved fuel efficiency as a result of less rolling resistance, better braking performance, driving comfort and maximum safety.
“When it comes to tyres, usually things are centred on one aspect and it is rare for a tyre to cover all five at one go. However, the Ultrac tyre has achieved that; according to Vredestein, its Ultrac has equal proportion of all five. Vredestein Ultrac tyre ‘Shines in wet performance, has the highest aquaplaning reserves and is extremely easy on handling’. Prominent German motoring magazine Auto Zeitung labelled the Ultrac as a ‘Very Recommended’ tyre in its 2022 summer tyre group test while Auto Express, one of UK leading magazines, gave it a ‘Recommended’ accolade in its annual test of summer tyres in 2021.”
Meanwhile, the Ultrac Vorti ultra-high-performance tyre, he claimed, met the practical and visual demands of owners of the most sporty and advanced cars. Featuring a very sporty and distinctive appearance, in addition to its clean looks, the tyre is said to excel in grip, handling and braking on both dry and wet surfaces. The Ultrac Vorti has the Y speed index, meaning it could be used for speeds above 300km/h.
Vredestein has a partnership with master Italian automotive designer Giorgetto Giugiaro. 1999 marked a milestone in design for the brand, which welcomed a new era of design excellence. The collaboration with Giugiaro, he pointed out, allowed Vredestein to refine its products to amplify the quality and performance of every tyre.
“Giugiaro Design has been closely involved with the development of Vredestein tyres over the past 20 years, designing a highly functional tyre with sleek, elegant tread and sidewalls, and creating an essential vehicle component capable of providing superior performance. Performance that remains unmatched, even in demanding conditions and surfaces. Producing a tyre worthy of its name, the Ultrac Vorti, created by Giugiaro, is inspired by the power of vortex air flow that is generated when a helicopter takes off. The name reflects the huge speeds and forces that the Ultrac Vorti could handle, while the tread is reminiscent of the tips of helicopter blades.”
The Ultrac Vorti, he added, was engineered and developed to satisfy consumers with a burning passion towards driving and strong concern towards safety on both dry and wet surfaces. Therefore, he said, powerful cars equipped with the Ultrac Vorti enjoyed a high level of steering precision, grip and safety while driving at high speeds. It is said to have achieved excellent results in leading independent tests.
Commended on its ‘Precise steering, perfect driving dynamics’ and ‘Sporty summer profile with a balanced high-performance level’, he said the Ultrac Vorti won first place in a summer tyre group test conducted by AutoBild, one of Germany’s leading motoring magazines, and was dubbed ‘exemplary’ by the independent test team in 2022.
He is confident that the Vredestein Ultrac and Ultrac Vorti could attract the attention of discerning consumers. As one of the world’s oldest tyre brands with above a century of experience in tyre innovation, he stressed that the rich European heritage was the story of Vredestein’s past and the inspiration for its future.
“The 115-year-old history has driven Vredestein to become a leader in first-class tyre design and manufacturing as it continues to innovate towards the perfect driving experience. Since 1908, Vredestein has pioneered exceptional tyre products for our customers; From the first tyre produced in 1910 to the high-performance tyre technology produced today.”
Pioneering tyre technology has been Vredestein’s purpose since the first tyre it produced. From then, Vredestein had produced tyre products that had brought home gold medals, broken world records and reinvented what safe, seamless, precision driving could be.
“Vredestein is European by birth and nature. Our tyres are designed and tested on European roads to ensure that the tyres we produce perform on any surface and in any weather. From ice-capped Alpine descents to golden hour coastal cruising, our European heritage inspires us to excel industry standards in tyre design and performance. The world is ever changing and the way we move is changing with it. We are driven to adapt to the mobility needs of today with the high-performance tyre technology of tomorrow; Focused on how our products could lead you and your vehicle to experience driving at its full potential.”
To provide peace of mind, he said, for a period of one year starting from the date of purchase, customers were eligible for unconditional warranty if tyres were damaged beyond repair by road hazards such as potholes and/or sharp objects that occurred during normal driving. Besides that, Vredestein also provides five years limited warranty from the date of purchase on manufacturing defects in workmanship or materials used.
