Falken Introduces RI 151 Bus Tyre


In order to respond to growing market challenges, Falken has decided to increase its range of products with the launch of new high load versions of the RI151 bus tyre.

New Bus Tyre from Falken

The RI151 is designed to meet the specific needs of regional transport, buses and coaches, as well as to become the ideal tyre for multipurpose use. This tyre offers excellent performance in all weather conditions, with the Three Peak Mountain Snowflake (3PMS) homologation.

The RI151 is already available in high load versions in dimensions 295 / 80R22.5; 315 / 60R22.5 and 315 / 70R22.5, all with axle load capacity of up to eight tons (depending on the model). To avoid confusion and the need to double the storage, these high load versions replace the previous models with normal load index

The RI151 tyre for the steering axle is designed for regional use and incorporates an innovative compound capable of overcoming the harshest weather conditions. In dry, wet or snow, the RI151 provides excellent traction and high mileage, as well as extraordinary robustness and durability. Its innovative design incorporates the innovative Stone Ejectors, outstanding elements that prevent stones from being trapped in the tyres.

All the models are regroovable, which contributes to the protection of the environment and to safeguard valuable resources, as well as to reduce costs.
