Apollo Tyres Adds New Size Options to its EnduRace RA 2 ‘Regional Transport’ Tyre Range

Apollo Tyres is expanding its range of next-generation EnduRace RA 2 ‘regional transport’ truck tyres for 22.5-inch rims, with the introduction of new 295/80 and 315/80 size options.

Developed and manufactured in Europe, the popular EnduRace RA 2 features a slim, compact tread design with a wide contact area to deliver enhanced all-season grip, low rolling resistance and high levels of durability, making it an attractive option for medium- and long-distance hauliers across Europe.

Both of the new sizes utilise Apollo Tyres’ ‘Invisible Groove technology’ to maintain high levels of grip and traction over their entire lifespan. They are also certified for year-round use via the ‘Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake’ mark embossed on the sidewall.

The advanced tread compound affords high levels of abrasion resistance, and durability is further improved through the use of low-hysteresis materials on the high-stress portions of the tyre’s structure, countering deformation under load.

Compared to the company’s first-generation EnduRace RA regional transport tyre, the EnduRace RA 2 provides a 10% reduction in rolling resistance and 1dB lower average road noise, as well as a 10% improvement in traction. The new tyre emits just 72dB of road noise and is B rated for wet grip.

Apollo Tyres launched the second generation of the EnduRace RA line in September 2023, following the success of the original in 2021. The use of in-house, state-of-the-art virtual prototyping has optimised the development cycle of its expanding portfolio of truck and bus, radial (TBR) products.

Yves Pouliquen, Group Head of Sales and Marketing at Apollo Tyres Europe, said: “The EnduRace has been an incredibly successful product line for us since it launched three years ago. Since then, we have focused our efforts on improving every aspect of the tyre so it caters to the evolving needs of our customers. The two new sizes will extend our reach in this highly competitive tyre segment and support our ambitious growth strategy for the wider TBR segment.”

The new EnduRace RA 2 sizes will be available across Europe in April.
