BKT once again attended the SIMA show in Paris, as it looked to make a noticeable impact at the bi-annual event.

BKT Step Up a Gear for SIMA

First of all, the new size of Agrimax Force was on display at the BKT stand (Hall 5A – J026), which isthe largest size BKT has ever realized for a radial tyre showing a diameter of not less than 2.30 meters.

Agrimax Force combines of resistance traction, speed and flexibility. Its secret is the IF-technology, which enables the tyre to operate at low pressure reducing hence soil compaction. Thanks to its class D speed index, Agrimax Force can travel at speeds of up to 65 km/h without any need for changing the inflation pressure.

Huge is the crystal-clear tractor made of well 1,500 kg of plexiglass and fitted with the new size of Ridemax IT 697 M+S, 710/70 R 42 on the rear axle, and with the version 600/70 R 30 on the front axle. This special product displays the M+S acronym (mud+snow) and has, indeed, been specifically developed for winter applications such as road transport for green maintenance and road cleaning operations.

This year, there has been much talk about the company thanks to several spectacular sport sponsorships worldwide: Coupe de la Ligue BKT, Serie BKT and the Big Bash League in Australia. Starting from this and for the coming six seasons, BKT has given its name to the soccer competition Coupe de la Ligue, from now on called Coupe de la Ligue BKT. A strategic choice, which puts the company into a position to stay close to its users that are spread all over the French territory and mostly football enthusiasts.
