Steelbird Introduces Flighter Range of Tyres at Auto Expo 2020
Published On 11-Feb-2020
The new tyre range is available for both motorcycles and scooters and comes in tube-type and tubeless layouts.
Steelbird Tyres has launched its new tyre range of two-wheelers – the Flighter – at the ongoing 2020 Auto Expo at New Delhi. The brand states that the Steelbird Flighter tyre series would be different from the other two-wheeler tyres present in the market. Not only restricted to motorcycles, but the rim and tyre sizes of this range are also compatible with scooters too.
Touted to absorb the road undulations and dampen the intensity of vibrations quickly, the new Flighter range will be offering a comfortable riding experience and pliant ride quality. Moreover, high coefficient friction and low wear performance will further lend a sense of safety to riders with a more confident ride.
Specifically designed for the Indian road conditions, the unique tread pattern ensures there is uniform tread wear which slashes tyre noise and vibrations and imparts excellent gripping capability to the tyre, the company claimed.
On the launch of the new Flighter tyre range, Manav Kapur, Managing Director, Steelbird, said, “Flighter series is robustly designed to absorb the shock loads caused due to road irregularities, dampness, and vibrations of heavy vehicles. With a higher coefficient of friction, Flighter is all set to make every road ride in India, safe and efficient.”
Presently, Steelbird tyres have 3000 touchpoints across the country and it aims to span its footprint aggressively by the financial year 2021. On the question of their expansion plans, he said they would be looking forward to diverse markets and are keeping a close eye on the US-China trade war and would like to take advantage of the same in future.
"We are working aggressively towards becoming one of the top five tyre manufacturers in the country by 2023," said Kapur.
The launch of a new tyre range is a breath of fresh air to the erstwhile boring Expo with a majority of automotive players and tyre makers skipping the event.
