Cargobike Tyre, CARGO (55-406), Vredestein by Apollo Tyres Ltd

Category: Tags: ,

With durability at its core, the Vredestein cargo tyre is built to last. The 2×3 bead to bead carcass design is inspired by the PCT (passenger car tyres) and moped world to respond to the application of 3- and 4-wheeled cargo bikes carrying higher loads than the conventional bicycle.

Made specifically with cargobikes in mind, the Vredestein tyre combines:

  • a unique cavity design for a flatter, hence larger contact surface that ensures optimal braking and cornering stability
  • a dual layer, bead-to-bead Carcass construction, providing enhanced sidewall stability
  • an apex around the bead area, reaching into the lower third of the sidewall to increase impact resistance and structural integrity
  • an elliptical footprint, resulting in better pressure distribution and less friction so that the decrease in wear and tear reduces overall cost of ownership and minimise downtime
  • bi-directional tread design, allowing mounting on either side
  • a fit for purpose rubber compound that reduced wear and downtime

FAQs

How difficult is it to change the tyre?

Due to the bi-directional design you would only require one spare wheel that could fit on both the right and the left side. Ideally the vehicle would store a spare wheel as the tyre mounts similar to a motorbike tyre. However, you do not need any additional tooling to mount the tyre – it just needs to be room temperature and might require some dishwashing liquid or lube.

 

Do seasons effect the tyre?

No, the tyre is an all-rounder. It is made predominately with a rubber mix developed for winter tyres and is designed to last.

 

How is sustainability handled in production and the company?

Tyres are difficult to recycle. In the production site, all employees work under safe conditions and receive fair compensation.

 

Can the tyre be driven tubeless?

This hasn’t been tested in detail, yet, but should be possible with a few adjustments. This would be done at own risk and the supplier is not liable.
