Continental is partnering with agricultural machinery manufacturer Valtra and announced it will present its tire portfolio at Valtra’s SmartTour roadshow. The SmartTour tractors will be equipped with Continental’s TractorMaster tires as part of its partnership.
With the event partnership, Continental and Valtra are continuing their collaboration: The A Series from the AGCO subsidiary has been available with Continental standard tires Tractor70 and Tractor85 since October 2018.
Valtra’s annual roadshow will take both companies along a route stretching more than 30,000 km to the most central locations for customers and fans in 20 European countries. At each stop, visitors will get the chance to enjoy an interactive presentation of the SmartTour show truck as well as test drive demonstrations of the new-generation A, N, T and S event tractors. The tour will kick off in January 2019.
“We are very happy to have Continental as our official tire partner for the 2019 SmartTour. Our tour is a great chance for our customers to ride and drive our tractors and see how, along with our partners, our professional solutions can be the perfect fit for their business”, says Samuel Hardy, Valtra SmartTour Manager.
The TractorMaster is the latest addition to the Continental agricultural tire portfolio. The TractorMaster comes with a flexible N.flex carcass and specially developed single-wire bead technology.
