Michelin launches new Tweel Tyre for Golf Carts.
Michelin Tweel Technologies brought out a new product, the Michelin X Tweel Turf airless radial tyre for golf carts.
The first-of-its-kind airless radial golf cart tyre-wheel assembly replaces the standard 18X8.5N10 front and rear tyre and wheel for golf carts, said the company.
This new four-bolt pattern version of the Michelin X Tweel Turf is designed for gas- or electric-powered golf cart users. It provides 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 tire 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.”
Because the X Tweel Turf has no air, it cannot go flat and it eliminates the need to maintain air pressure. The TWEEL airless radial tire is constructed with high-strength poly-resin spokes that carry the load and create suspension-like characteristics for the golf cart. This structure absorbs impact and reduces bounce for improved operator comfort. It boasts a durable, multi-directional tread that provides long wear life and excellent traction. The X Tweel Turf has a maximum speed of 25 mph and a maximum load of 705 pounds.
