The E-Durapro tyres are available for the commercial EV segment and are developed exclusively for e-riskshaws. They have been designed to carry heavy loads.
The Sportorq tyres feature reinforced tri-polymer compounds and have been developed for high-performance bikes. They are said to offer a superior grip on both wet and dry surfaces and come with a unique tread pattern stability and control on high speeds. As per the company, the 'specially designed grooves' on the tyre surface provides for better grip on wet surface and enables better stability and traction taking corners.
