BFGoodrich launches 'most advanced' off road tyre

6

BFGoodrich has launched the All-Terrain T/A KO2, which it claims is its most advanced off road tyre.

The All-Terrain T/A KO2 tyre is the first commercially available tyre to incorporate the company’s CoreGard™ technology, providing resistance against sidewall splitting. The new KO2 is 20 per cent stronger than its predecessor in this area.

The technology, developed in the Baja T/A KR2, with split and bruise-resistant sidewall rubber and a thicker, extended shoulder to reduce sidewall failures. Computer modelling was used to predict object paths and create a sidewall design most likely to deflect protruding objects, reducing the chances of splits and snags. The result is a tougher tyre so drivers can take on trails of various conditions.

BFGoodrich claims it is also durable, lasting twice as long on gravel roads and 15 per cent longer on asphalt, 10 per cent greater traction in the mud and 19 per cent greater traction in the snow compared to the previous-generation KO tyre.

The KO2 also carries the 3 Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol, indicating that it exceeds the Rubber Manufacturer Association’s severe snow traction requirements.
