Michelin Ultraflex Technologies

On the Ground

The key to economic success of your farm: the best possible crop yield!
And your most precious asset: healthy soil! It is therefore important to protect it by reducing compaction and ruts.

Innovation agricultural tyres created primarily to optimize your agricultural yield, the key to economic success

 

The solution: Agricultural tyres with MICHELIN Ultraflex Technologies

Michelin Ultraflex technologies allow tires to operate at lower pressures¹ while remaining resilient and strong. The increased footprint; distributes the load more evenly and reduces soil compaction. Your soil will allow your crop to better utilize water and nutrients.

How does it work?

Optimising your yield starts with the innovative tyre casing based on MICHELIN Ultraflex technologies. Agricultural tyres designed with modern MICHELIN Ultraflex technologies operate at lower than standard pressures while remaining durable and strong.

Result: Less compaction and rutting in your fields using the farm equipment you already own.

In addition, the longer footprint increases traction and puts the horsepower to the ground. You save time and fuel, protect your soil and increase your yield!

The advantages

Greater soil protection

MICHELIN Ultraflex technologies produce a larger footprint, which protects the your soil of your farm from compaction and rutting.
Air and water penetrate more freely. Conditions are therefore improved for maximum crop response.

More savings on fuel

The larger footprint considerably increases traction, resulting in a clear reduction in tractor wheel slip, enabling you to work faster and save on fuel!

Greater endurance and longer service life

Reinforced sidewalls and special rubber compounds make agricultural tyres with MICHELIN Ultraflex technologies extremely strong, even at lower pressure.

Result: Higher return on investment.

Greater soil protection*

MICHELIN® AxioBib works best at low pressure. Your benefit: the larger footprint and the reduced pressure on the soil results in a considerable reduction in ruts and soil compaction.

Increase traction*

The large footprint* increases the traction capability of the MICHELIN® AxioBib tyre. This reduces the amount of slip of your tractor wheel as well as your fuel consumption.

Greater load capacity*

A MICHELIN® AxioBib gives up to 20% more load capacity compared with standard technology tires.

Time saved*

Its excellent traction enables the MICHELIN® AxioBib to make full use of the power of your tractor even in difficult conditions, which reduces your work time, saving you money.

Extended service life*

The MICHELIN Ultraflex technology casing with reinforced sidewalls gives this high resistance tractor tyre an excellent service life even at low pressure.

Better road holding*

On the road, even at lower pressure*, the MICHELIN® AxioBib offers remarkable comfort and excellent handling.

3. For high horsepower tractors: MICHELIN YIELDBIB

MICHELIN® YIELDBIB™ , the first standard size VF tire on the north american HHP tractor market

MICHELIN® YieldBib™ , the newest Michelin Ultraflex Technology tire, is capable of operating in the field at air pressures as low as 8psi.  Michelin Ultraflex Technology allows you to carry the same load as a standard technology tire with 40% less air pressure.  Reduced air pressure along with a longer footprint means less soil compaction, and more yields.

Reduced Soil Compaction*

MICHELIN® YieldBib™ , featuring Michelin Ultraflex Technology, allows you to carry the same load with reduced air pressure of up to 40% compared to standard technology tires. Plus, the longer footprint means reduced soil compaction and increased yield in the seasons to come.

Increased Traction*

The R1W lugs and 45 degree lug angle design of MICHELIN® YieldBib™ provide better traction and less slippage in all seasons. Better traction means reduced fuel consumption, so you can work more efficiently - no matter the conditions.

Reduced Fuel Consumption*

Better traction means reduced fuel consumption, so you can work more efficiently - no matter the conditions.

Stubble Resistant for more durability*

Stubble deflecting lugs and an anti-stubble belt feature in the tread area of MICHELIN® YieldBib™ are specifically intended for stubble resistance, extending the life of the tire.

4. For Combines : MICHELIN CEREXBIB

MICHELIN® CEREXBIB : greater mobility at low pressure for combines and forage harvesters
