Great companies are built on great products; Maxxis proves this statement. Maxxis, the world’s 9th largest tyre company, came into existence in 1967 as Cheng Shin Rubber Ind. Co. Today it is counted among the world’s most reputed and reliable tyre companies. Maxxis is known for offering high-quality tyres across 180 countries worldwide, with an employee base of over 30,000. Without getting deeper into its history, let’s get a sight into its two most recent passenger car tyre lines launched in 2018. Maxxis at this launch event introduced the world to its next level tyres, Victra Sport 5 and Premitra 5.
1. Maxxis Victra Sport 5: This tyre is a UHP (ultra high performance) summer tyre for passenger car, which is actually a replacement of its previous tyre Maxxis Victra Sport VS01. TÜV SÜD, global testing, certification, inspection, and training company tested Maxxis Victra Sport5 against 245/40R18 97Y forms of Hankook Ventus S1 EVO2 and Michelin Pilot Sport 4. The report revealed that the Maxxis tyre either matches or beats its opponents in almost every test. The ability of Victra Sport 5 to shorten the braking distances in wet as well as dry surfaces by up to 5.5 per cent (25.6m/9.03m/s2 with speed range of 80 to 20 km/h) is remarkable. In addition to that, it enhances wet handling by approx. 2% (with 8.28/10 at 79.02 km/h speed). Not only this, it wins the dry handling tests with a mere 0.2% and matches with Hankook Ventus S1 EVO2 in providing resistance to aquaplaning with the speed of 77.5 km/h. Transcending costly options on almost all criteria is actually appreciable attainment for Maxxis. This success witnesses Maxxis’ rigorous and constant efforts into research and development. No doubt, the company has lavishly invested in setting up the research and development centres along with avant-garde manufacturing units.
2. Premitra 5: Premitra 5 offers spectacular ground – straight line wet grip and optimal handling at high speeds. The credit goes to its specially designed treads with outer shoulder blocks alongside the central ribs. This kind of tread remarkably improves water dispersal as well as resistance to aquaplaning. Full silica tread compound delivers excellent dry and wet grip. The multi-pitch design on its treads contributes greatly to offering upgraded performance in terms of rolling resistance. Premitra HP 5 won the Wheels Magazine’s 2017 Tire Test (which is also called “torture test”) for outperforming its seven rival tyre variants. The Premitra HP5 was declared as “decently quiet, impressively agile and exceptionally hard-stopping” by Wheels magazine. It surprised the organiser with its extra-ordinary brakes that out-stopped its competitors.
The commitment to deliver the best to the industry gives a kick to Maxxis for developing new generation tyres using the latest technologies. Maxxis not only self-tests its tyre products but also sends them to the global tyre test centres. The championship-winning riders also agree that Maxxis products meet the toughest real-world measures. Each and every Maxxis tyre is produced in a full-fledged facility using the state-of-the-art equipment while ensuring that the quality is maintained at every level of production.
