our technology

Galileo CupWheel Tires deliver enhanced performance capabilities based on a brand-new design concept.

By combining the traction and flotation advantages of rubber tracks with the roadability, efficiency and compatibility advantages of radial tires, Galileo CupWheel Tires offer a highly beneficial, affordable and road-friendly hybrid solution.

Larger Footprint

Larger Footprint

We know that the footprint size and quality plays a pivotal role in the performance of your machine. Being the only contact point of the machine to the ground. The perfect balance of a larger footprint and total air distribution within the tire distributes the load more evenly resulting in less soil compaction.

It took us 8 years of R&D to develop a wheel and technology that would have a larger footprint. The result, a hybrid that works very much like your traditional tire in terms of speed and maneuverability together with the power efficiency and traction of tracks.

Key Benefits of a Larger Footprint:

  • Larger load distribution
  • More uniform load distribution
  • Reduced soil compaction
  • Enhanced efficiency
  • Low energy costs
  • Decreased gearbox overload

Increased Traction

Increased Traction

With improved resistance between the tire and the ground, you will have less tire slippage and more tillage. The result is overall Improved productivity & yield outputs. The tires, after all, are what transfer the engine’s energy so let your tires do the job they are meant to do.

Most terrains will enjoy a 20-40% increase in traction for enhancing machinery and farming efficiency.

Key Benefits of Improved Traction:

  • More drag force
  • Less tire slippage
  • Time-efficient
  • Improved productivity
  • Improved yield output
  • Reduced energy and fuel consumption

Lateral stability

Lateral stability

Enhanced lateral stability much higher in comparison with a regular radial tire allowing better steering and slope performance with no need to over-inflate or use solid tires.

The double  V-Shaped structure provides high radial flexibility, maintains enhanced lateral stability, and retains its circumference with lower or zero air pressure.

Key Benefits of Lateral Stability:

  •  Better steering
  •  Improved slope performance
  • Safer and more comfortable ride

Soil Protection

Soil Protection

A good field starts with good soil. While perfecting the CupWheel and talking to industry leaders we quickly realized the importance of not only making a more efficient wheel that will last but also make a wheel that will protect the soil.

We are able to reduce rutted fields and soil compaction by carefully creating the perfect footprint that is both larger and designed in a way that allows to better protect the soil.

  • Reduced soil compaction
  • Decreased rutted fields  (up to 50% less in comparison to equivalent radial tires)
  • Larger & better footprint footprint

Smoother Ride

Smoother Ride

In a world of self-driving cars and automation, where the driver’s comfort is of top priority, why are our drivers still riding rough? With our new CupWheel technology, 2 key features bring improved comfort for the driver.

The extended footprint helps create a less bumpy and smoother ride over grooves and ridges while the unique double V-Shaped construction of the CupWheel helps with dumping properties.

Key Benefits of a Smoother Ride

  • Comfort and safety for the driver
  • Cushioning over ridges and field obstacles
  • Protection for the machine
  • Reduced cost maintenance
  • Reduction of soil damages

Run-Flat Capability

Run-Flat Capability

By combining the traction, flotation, and run-flat advantages of rubber tracks with the roadability, efficiency and compatibility

advantages of radial tires, CupWheel tires offer a highly beneficial, affordable and road-friendly hybrid solution.

The run-flat solution of Galileo CupWheel allows you to finish the day

or even the season if punctured or low on air.

Key Benefits of Run-Flat Capability:

  • Zero downtime
  • Peace of mind
  • Reduced operational costs

Increased Efficiency & Durability

Learn More >

Increased Efficiency & Durability

The CupWheel has several unique features that make it a highly efficient tire. The most important being the better designed and larger footprint. Increasing endurance & life-span & ensuring zero downtime (run-flat)

The extended footprint is uniformly distributed even in cases of extreme vertical loads or low tire inflation pressure. The Galileo CupWheel has an extended tread life due to the load distribution. In addition, the double reinforced V-shaped sidewalls are less inclined to be damaged.

  • Better load index
  • Better field performances
  • Longer life-span
  • Reduced risk of side-wall damages
  • Zero downtime

Road-Ability

Road-Ability

When designing the Galileo CupWheel we wanted to combine the versatility of both radial tires and tracks and by doing this we were able to invent a tire that offered both on and off-road capabilities under a variety of conditions.

The CupWheel has a self-cleaning mechanism that adds to these on and off-road capabilities by decreasing dirt left behind making it even more efficient for the driver and decreasing worry.

Use the same tire on and off-road, no adjustments needed!

Benefits of Road-Ability:

  • Steady & comfortable ride on and off-road
  • On and off-road capability – no air-pressure changes needed
  • Time & cost-effective
  • No adjustments needed
  • Excellent lateral stability for steering
  • smaller air-volume which reduces inflation time when using central air pressure systems

Cost-Effective

Cost-Effective

Patented Design of the CupWheel is made to make the wheel do the work by combining the traction and flotation advantages of rubber tracks with the roadability, efficiency and compatibility advantages of radial tires. Galileo CupWheel offers an affordable, road friendly hybrid solution.

The double  V-Shaped structure provides high radial flexibility, maintains enhanced lateral stability, and retains its circumference with low or zero air pressure.

Key Benefits: 

  • Decreased fuel consumption (off-road)
  • Improved overall durability
  • Extended tire life
  • Minimal machine maintenance
  • Time-efficient

Rim-Compatibility

Rim-Compatibility

The CupWheel uses the same tread, bead and rim so no adaptations to your machine or vehicle nor supply chain need to be made.

 

Benefits of rim-compatibility:

  • Use your standard rim
  • zero adjustments needed

Mass Production

Self-Cleaning

The CupWheel has a unique self-cleaning mechanism which minimizes dirt and soil residue while providing a better grip.

 

You can also ride with a peace of mind knowing that your tire isn’t leaving a trail of dirt behind.

 

Benefits of A Self-cleaning system:

  • Minimizes soil & dirt residue
  • Provides better grip
  • Reduces environmental damage
