Revolutionary Structure and Design

The Ultrac Pro stands out in the high-performance tyre market with its unique structure. A significant shift in the material layout, especially in the bead and lower sidewall areas, contributes to its groundbreaking design. This re-engineering provides exceptional stability at high speeds and during aggressive cornering, while ensuring a smooth experience over uneven surfaces.

Innovative Tread Compound for Unmatched Grip

The tyre's tread features a new-generation compound, produced through a sophisticated mixing process involving cutting-edge polymers, fillers, and performance resins. This development ensures unparalleled grip in both wet and dry conditions, across a wide range of temperatures, setting a new standard in tyre performance.

Enhanced Performance and Comfort

Daniele Lorenzetti, Apollo Tyres' Chief Technology Officer, highlights the Ultrac Pro's dual achievement in delivering top-tier performance without compromising on comfort. The tyre's resistance to bead deformation has increased by 85%, enhancing stability and reducing lateral distortion during hard cornering. Additionally, the thinner sidewall profile in the bead rim area offers a larger 'flex-zone', allowing for greater natural compliance over rough surfaces.

Optimised for Sustainability and Efficiency

The thoughtful design of the Ultrac Pro significantly reduces its weight, contributing to the sustainability of the product. The reimagined shoulder area, using more flexible materials, further improves ride compliance and minimises rolling resistance. The optimal balance between tread, sidewalls, and bead area ensures a perfect footprint shape under all driving conditions.

Broad Compatibility and Availability

The Ultrac Pro will be available in sizes ranging from 18 to 24 inches, catering to a diverse range of sports cars, supercars, and high-performance saloons, hatchbacks, and SUVs. This broad compatibility underscores Vredestein's commitment to providing advanced tyre solutions for a wide spectrum of high-performance vehicles.

Vredestein's Ultrac Pro sets a new benchmark in the ultra-high-performance tyre segment, offering an unparalleled combination of stability, comfort, and sustainability. Its launch this spring is eagerly anticipated by car enthusiasts and industry experts alike, marking a new era in tyre technology.
