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

Category: Tags: ,

A cargo bike tyre with durability at its core.

With a bigger contact surface, stronger sidewall, and higher structural integrity the Vredestein cargo tyre is built to last. The 2×3 bead to bead carcass design is inspired by the PCT and moped world to respond to the application of 3- and 4-wheeled cargo bikes carrying higher loads than the conventional bicycle.

The elliptical footprint of the tyre result in better pressure distribution and less friction so that the decrease in wear and tear reduces overall cost of ownership and minimise downtime.

How difficult is it to change the tyre?

Ideally the vehicle would store a spare wheel as the tyre mounts similar to a motorbike 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.


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 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.
