Tubless wheels for the DR400/500

Robin Aircraft have announced the availability of a tubeless conversion for the DR400/500 aircraft.

The new wheels are also applicable to DR253, DR340/315/360/380/300 aircraft fitted with DR400 landing gear.

Tubeless tyres are more reliable than tubed tyres, and the tubless tyres reduce bulk and cut mass. The weight saving is about 1·6 kg per wheel, so around 4·8 kg in total.

The new wheels and tyres are being fitted to all new Robin aircraft and retrofit kits are available from CEAPR through your approved workshop.
