Multiple metrics and tests - both lab tests as well as road tests - are used to regularly measure and benchmark the performance of Kragos tyres. Our modern production facility houses a range of sophisticated equipment, including a test wheel set-up, to measure performance. In addition, road tests under actual operating conditions at several customer sites across the world have consistently returned superior performance results for Kragos tyres.
Performance of our tyres are driven by multiple design related parameters:
The ability to offer high loadbearing capacities is a key measure of our products. Kragos tyres are chemically treated to protect the tyre against all deleterious effects of atmospheric oxygen, ozone, flex, fatigue and shear. In addition, the design of the tyre ensures that performance of front (load) and rear (steering) wheels for lift and industrial vehicles conform to global standards & norms including ETRTO, T&RA and JATMA.
Load Deflection Curves
The performance of a solid tyre is ultimately a result of the load deflection characteristics of its individual components; since, once integrated, the load deflection properties of a solid tyre is the sum total of these individual characteristics. We ensure that we consistently measure load deflection behaviour of all key individual components of our solid tyres and benchmark them against global standards to create a product with maximum performance potential.
