The Range Of Products In Detail
Apollo EnduRace RA
Apollo EnduRace RA is a regional all-wheel or steer-fitment tyre in 295/90 R20 size. The brand claims this tyre offers a host of benefits to its customers. These include – even wear characteristics, best-in-class initial tread mileage (ITM) and superior durability in regional applications. With this tyre, Apollo also has a target to become a leader in the street segment with this product.
The optimised contact patch guarantees even wear throughout life. Meanwhile, the specially engineered groove design aids the tread stability, traction as well as steerability. The superior compound made of a blend of polymers, new gen fillers and special reinforcements ensures best-in-class mileage and low heat build-up.
Apollo EnduTrax MA
Apollo EnduTrax MA, launched in 295/90 R20 size, promises a mixed application steer-fitment tyre, primarily for tipper trucks. It gets a superior cut and chip-resistant compound, thus ensuring a trouble-free performance in rough terrains. The stone ejectors also prevent stone drilling and penetration, which adds to the extra prevention of the carcass. At the same time, its zig-zag wide centre grooves provide enough traction and control, while the robust wide shoulder will ensure uniform wear.
The carcass in this tyre has been designed for high torque and load for off-road conditions. This results in increased tyre life and retreadability. With these tyres, Apollo will ensure that the customers get the highest vehicle uptime and lowest cost per kilometre.
Apollo EnduRace RD nRG
Apollo EnduRace RD nRG, part of Apollo’s nRG range, as Apollo claims, is the most fuel-efficient drive tyre for regional to long haul applications. This tyre will provide 5-8 per cent better fuel savings while also offering uncompromised durability and tire life. It uses a robust 4-block design and special-grade raw materials, which offer lower rolling resistance. Meanwhile, its strong belt, bead package, and tension-optimised carcass provide adequate durability. Additionally, the optimally designed tread pattern, with a well-distributed footprint, helps in the usage of full rubber mass efficiently.
Apollo EnduRace LD+ and RD
Apollo EnduRace LD+ and RA cater for the drive and steer-fitment in regional applications for ICVs in 9.00 R20 sizes. Its main target audience is the rapidly growing e-Commerce, parcel and logistics industry. These tyres deliver advantages of- best-in-class tread mileage, proven robust casing, uniform wear and better fuel efficiency, as claimed by Apollo. The twin centre blocks of this tyre optimally set with shoulder will provide better load bearing and uniform wear. Additionally, its superior belt construction counters puncture damages inflicted upon the tread surface, which in turn results in prolonged tread life and more retreads.
