by Editor News


Apollo Tyres has recently won the ‘Innovative Product/Service Award’ in the 2019 Golden Peacock Award. The company was awarded for the production of India’s first zero degrees steel belted motorcycle radial tyres, the Apollo Alpha H1.

The award was presented to Apollo’s regional head Mohammed Loubani and its chief R&D officer P K Mohamed, during the 29th World Congress on Leadership for BUSINESS EXCELLENCE & INNOVATION. It was conducted at the Habtoor Palace in Dubai last week.

The Golden Peacock awards were first conducted by India’s Institute of Directors in 1991. Since then they are conducted to recognise global achievements in business. It is considered to be one of the prestigious awards that a business can win.

The Apollo Alpha-H1 is Apollo’s invention for motorbike tyres. These tyres are the company’s first motorcycle steel radial tyres that are designed to deliver high performance. These tyres are designed to provide more grip and increased tread life. The company has claimed that the Alpha-H1 offers 50 per cent more tread life than the standard tyres used on KTM 390 Duke and KTM RC 390. These tyres provide good grip on-road as well as off-the-road tracks.


Let’s look at the specifications of Alpha-H1:

  • Alpha-H1 front tyre’s size is 110/70 ZR17, with 54 load index and W speed index. Alpha-H1 rare tyre’s size is 150/60 ZR17, with 66 load index and W speed index.

  • The tyres are made with zero degree steel belts that maintain stability on high speed without much structural deformation.

  • For outstanding sports handling, these tyres have dual radii cavity that quickly achieves lean angles.

  • For maximum grip on a wet and dry surface and optimum tread mileage, the tyre is made with a premium blend of silica and carbon black.

  • For short braking distance and excellent performance on a wet surface, the tyres have V-oriented grooves.

Not only Alpha-H1, but Apollo Tyres have also been coming up with different type of tyres. The company has a wide range of tyres for different vehicles, for different road conditions and different weather conditions.

Over the past five years, they acquired renowned tyre brands like Dunlop, Vredestein and Kaizen. The only segment they didn’t have their presence was the two-wheeler segment. In March 2016, they announced their entry in the lucrative segment of two-wheelers. They introduced a series of tyres named “Acti” for mid-segment motorbikes and scooters. Rear tyre with three tread patterns was introduced namely Acti Grip R1 and R2 which are multi-purpose and fit for both on and off-road. Acti Grip R3 being directional pattern tyre is best suited only for tarmac. Front tyres were also introduced in three patterns, Acti Steer F1 sports with straight rib pattern and Acti Zip F2, F3 sports with a directional pattern. These tyres are designed to handle high-speed biking and heavy braking.
