Golf buggies to benefit from Michelin’s Tweel technology
A Michelin Tweel airless radial tyre-wheel combination is now available for golf buggies, initially in North American markets. Michelin North America has announced the launch of the Michelin X Tweel Turf, a replacement for the standard 18X8.5N10 front and rear golf buggy fitment. The X Tweel Turf has a maximum speed of 25 mph and a maximum load of 705 pounds/320 kilogrammes.
This new four-bolt pattern version of the Michelin X Tweel Turf is designed for use on both petrol-driven and electric golf buggies and is promoted as an “an ideal solution” for owners and operators who “deal with expensive and inconvenient downtime associated with flat tyres while using this vehicle in industrial, construction, utility or other rugged-surface conditions.”
“This new product is in direct response to customer demand for Tweel airless radial tyre performance in a golf cart application,” said Jack Olney, director of sales for Michelin Tweel Technologies. “And our direct, online ordering capability means factory-to-customer delivery makes this new technology even easier to obtain and bolt on.”
