Apollo launches first coach tyre

Apollo Tyres has launched its first coach tyre, the all-new EnduComfort CA.

The tyre maker claims this new tyre delivers premium levels of mileage, durability and all-weather grip, as well as superior standards of comfort for passengers and drivers.

The EnduComfort CA has been designed and developed in Europe by Apollo Tyres’ in-house R&D operation and is being produced at its manufacturing plant in Hungary. It is available in 295/80 R22.5 dimensions.

Developed for medium- and long-distance use, the new EnduComfort CA tyre features an advanced tread compound and a reinforced casing, which together help to minimise abrasion, ensure cooler running and safeguard even patterns of wear.

The result is high levels of durability – 1.9 times greater than the EU minimum requirement – and mileage performance which is consistent with coach tyres from established premium-brand manufacturers, according to Apollo Tyres.

It has also been certified for all-weather grip with the ‘three-peak mountain snowflake’ insignia.

Apollo Tyres claims the EnduComfort CA represents the “best value for money in the European coach segment”.

According to Apollo, the EnduComfort CA’s innovative tread design features unique zigzag grooves to deliver superior standards of grip in wet and snowy conditions, while groove base protectors offer enhanced protection against stone penetration.

The tread pattern and compound have also been developed to help minimise noise, aiding comfort for passengers.

“The coach tyre market is extremely competitive, and we are launching our debut product confident that it offers the durability, performance and comfort that the most demanding coach owners and fleet operators across Europe now expect,” comments John Nikhil Joy, cluster director Europe – Truck & Bus tyres at Apollo Tyres.

“The research and development team responsible for the EnduComfort CA have built on the success of Apollo Tyres products in the truck, passenger car and agricultural sectors, drawing on expertise in design and materials to deliver a product that offers an optimal balance of performance and low cost of ownership.”
