The EP-Marathon Emergency Runflat Insert

The EP-Marathon Emergency runflat insert enables to continue driving a vehicle in the event of a loss of tyre pressure without damaging the rims. It consists of a multi-segment ring either manufactured in elastomer or in synthetic rubber “EUROTHANE”. The rings are designed to fit all single and multi-part rims in sizes from 15 to 27 inches and also different types of tyres and wheel loads. The system can be used on many types of wheeled vehicles: APC, IFV, MRAP vehicles, 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8.

The systems stand out due to the following features:

Low weight
High fitting accuracy and low imbalance due to mechanical machining on all sides
Trouble-free operation even in combination with tyre pressure monitoring and control systems
No need to replace the system due to material ageing
Dimensional stability in a temperature range from -40 to +160 °C
Use of environmentally friendly lubricants
Possibility of dismantling and reusing the system when the tyre is replaced

The tyre emergency running systems remain functional even when exposed to gunfire. The findings from internal and external gunfire tests find their application in the modification of the systems.

The assembly of the systems is carried out using simple machines based on our own assembly instructions and requires less than 30 minutes per system.

“EP – Marathon” tyre emergency running systems are particularly economic solutions for all scenarios where a high level of system reliability and easy assembly is required. This system is used and trusted by many customers worldwide.
