K708 and K727 – Two New KRAIBURG Traction Designs

K708                                                                                 K727

Just in time for the summer, KRAIBURG Aus­tria is presenting two new products in the pattern portfolio of the KRAIBURG plus series: K708 and K727. Both designs are available from July 2021 and can already be ordered in advance.

K708 plus – trouble-free passenger transport

The K708 is a modern all-season design for buses that has been developed primarily for city traffic. But it also gives a good performance in regional and overland traffic. Its optimised stipe design also makes the K708 a real winter specialist. It provides a really good grip, especially on snow and ice. The retreading specialist therefore recommends fitting it in the autumn. The stipe design also minimises the formation of sawtooth wear. The retread convinces overall with its modern design, whereby the arrangement of the tread blocks also considerably reduces noise emissions in operation. The rounded and closed shoulder protects the tyre from damage by snagging and kinking – an important advantage in city traffic with its tight radii and kerbsides. The all-round K708 pattern is available in three sizes – 240, 250 and 260 millimetres – with a depth of 22 millimetres.

K727 plus – safety through good grip

The new K727 is also a traction design in the K_plus version. Developed for use in regional traffic, it is also suitable for long-distance traffic. Deep and specially formed grooves in combination with a particularly aggressive shoulder design lend the K727 maximum traction properties even under extreme winter conditions – from the first ground frost to the last snow in the spring. In addition, the tread has an extraordinary damage resistance. The highly developed fixation of the tread blocks ensures low proper motion and high stability and therefore guarantees excellent driving comfort all year round. The K727, which satisfies the demand for a safe driving feeling at all times, also achieves very good mileages. The depth is 20 millimetres, the currently available widths are 260 and 270 millimetres. The K727 is also prepared for fitting with spikes and has the appropriate ‘stud holes’.
