The company intends to create a new benchmark in performance with Apollo Abhimanyu in the steer tyre space, where the radialisation is still to catch-up, and bias tyres still account for over 60% of the overall steer tyre category, it further added.

Abhimanyu, as per  Apollo Tyres, is a quantum leap in cross-ply technology, made possible by host of innovations on the product design and compound technology. The company promises to deliver 15% better Initial Tread Mileage (ITM) to ensure maximum profitability for the customers, while the heat ageing-resistant casing with HEART platform ensures best-in-class durability, re-treadability and casing value. These tyres are best suited for carrying rated to moderate loads and fitment on steer axles in the Regional Cargo, Tippers, PMST applications and on all positions in passenger buses.

Commenting on the launch, Satish Sharma, President, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa (APMEA), Apollo Tyres Ltd said “The steer position is the most critical on any commercial vehicle, and the tyre used on its steer axle position demands highest design precision and manufacturing controls. To continue our leadership position in the CV segment and create a benchmark in the cross-ply category, even when the radialisation is happening at a fast pace, it is important for us to have such differentiating products.”

The optimised tread compound of Apollo Abhimanyu with higher wear resistance and better distribution of rubber at wearing zones, along with innovative cavity design that ensures uniform pressure distribution across footprint provides maximum mileage.

Abhimanyu tyres have a robust casing due to the specially designed carcass architecture which provides better sidewall stiffness, the new generation off-shoulder design improves heat dissipation and reduces stress marks, thereby keeping the carcass cooler and safer in these tyres. The tread cap compound is 10% cooler than other tyres for faster and longer distances.
