Kraiburg updates pattern programme to include K701 “winter specialist”

Kraiburg Austria has updated its pattern programme to include the K701 “winter specialist” and the results are now available. The 2015/2016 issue is laid out in the usual way in that the patterns are listed in ascending number order. The division into groups depending on applications does not feature in the print version but customers who are interested in this version can still download it from the Internet. The list still contains the labelling of the core range, i.e. the tread sections. The relevant patterns and widths are in grey boxes. As always, the Application Information System (AIS) is included as well as additional technical information for the use of the patterns.

All the new Kraiburg designs are included in the latest programme, such as the new K701 winter, a home-grown traction tread with open shoulders. Designed as an all-weather tread, its deep siping is said to offer “the optimum transfer of tractive forces in winter, even in extreme Scandinavian conditions”. The optimised interaction between tread bars and ribs and the compound designed specifically for this tread pattern provide an excellent hard-wearing surface on the K701. In addition to the dimensions of 250 and 260 mm which can already be supplied, the width 270 mm will also be available in time for the start of the winter season.

The print and online versions of the pattern programme can be downloaded from the website at
