Apollo Vredestein is giving a world premiere of its brand-new Vredestein Comtrac 2 All Season tyre at the biennial AutoZum show. As the European automotive industry gathers in Salzburg, Austria, from Wednesday 18 January to Saturday 21 January, the leading tyre manufacturer will also showcase a complete range of Vredestein products and various exciting collaborations with premium styling brands.
Since its launch onto the market, the Vredestein Comtrac All Season tyre has established a formidable reputation among delivery van drivers and light truck owners for its efficiency, comfortable driving performance, excellent handling and stable road holding. The tyre is recognised as the best option for motorists and businesses that prefer to use a single type of tyre for both the summer and winter seasons.
Building on experience
Since the Vredestein Comtrac All Season was first introduced, the company has built up enormous experience in this area of the tyre market. Now the company’s R&D experts have leveraged on this know-how to create the Vredestein Comtrac 2 All Season tyre, featuring a range of additional improvements.
A new construction concept provides an even higher degree of stiffness and features wider longitudinal and open shoulder grooves. Moreover, a new silica tread compound will see a reduction in energy losses. The practical results of these changes are notable: the Vredestein Comtrac 2 All Season has an 11.70-metre shorter breaking distance on wet roads at 80 km/h compared to its already impressive predecessor. The new version also offers ten percent more stability when driving with heavy loads and a five percent improvement in rolling resistance.
The new Vredestein Comtrac 2 is set to significantly raise the bar for all-season tyres in the delivery van and light truck segment.
The Apollo Vredestein stand (number 0702) is located in Hall 10. In addition to the above highlights it will feature a striking BMW M4 car tuned by Hamann and fitted with Vredestein tyres. There will also be a display of tyres created by Vredestein together with its other premium styling (and rim) partners Brock, AEZ and BBS.
