BKT Launches RIDEMAX IT 697 (M+S) for Drivers to Face the Winter Season


The radial tyre with mud and snow credentials BKT says is the ideal choice for agricultural operators for the winter season.

A Tyre Suitable for Mud, Snow and Dry Soil

With BKT’s RIDEMAX IT (M+S) 697 tyre, agricultural drivers can benefit from a multi-season tyre. Additionally, the tyre is suitable for dryer soil. The tyre’s tread and the compound have been designed to maintain the characteristics of the tyre even at low temperatures while providing traction and grip on wet, snowy or slippery terrain.

BKT’s winter tyre is suitable for a mix of wet and dry soils to adapt to the needs of modern subcontractors and farmers while providing comfort and stability. It also guarantees a firm grip for all operations on icy and snowy roads, without any need for snow chains. And it is currently available in 12 different sizes.

BKT tyre tests showed that the RIDEMAX IT 697 tyre (M+S) can handle over 4,000 working hours, compared to 3,000 hours for a standard tyre on the rear axle.

The RIDEMAX IT 697 (M+S) is part of BKT's specialist agricultural range, which has been developed to withstand high speeds, support heavy loads, and have contained rolling resistance. These benefits offer the customer enticing fuel savings and reduced transport cycles in the long run.
