Continental unveils new truck tyres
With its specially designed construction, the new Conti Hybrid range is ideal for heavy-duty distribution and fleet use.
The first version of the new Hybrid range in 22.5 inch format to be launched is the Conti Hybrid HS3, a steering axle tread for universal use.
When compared with its predecessors, the thick new tread design with a high wear volume (“plus volume pattern”) guarantees a 17 per cent longer service life.
The larger plus volume pattern used for the tread of this new tyre also considerably reduces rolling resistance caused by flexing, making the new Conti Hybrid HS3 a reliable all-rounder for demanding transport schedules on different road types.
Pocket sipes inserted diagonally into the base of the tread optimize wet-road performance throughout the tire’s service life, even on changing road surfaces. Its closed shoulders make the new Conti Hybrid HS3 steering-axle tire in 22.5 inch format highly maneuverable while reducing movement within the tread design.
The use of a new rubber compound in the sidewall helps reduce the build up of temperature in the tire, resulting in lower fuel consumption.
Very high levels of safety in demanding regional distribution traffic, excellent behaviour in wet weather throughout the entire service life, and consistently outstanding braking properties make the new Conti Hybrid steering axle tyres perfect universal tyres.
But despite its wide range of different applications, the new Conti Hybrid HS3 remains true to the German manufacturer’s product promise: maximum tyre life with even lower fuel consumption.
The solid reinforced premium casing, increased tread material, four-layer triangular belts, and an especially robust bead construction guarantee a long and reliable service life. In addition, the load-carrying capacity of this new universal tyre has been adapted for the heavier weight of Euro 6 trucks. The integrated visual alignment indicator (VAI) makes wheel alignment errors easy to spot from the tread pattern.
The newly developed steering axle tires Conti Hybrid HS3 will be available in no fewer than eight different dimensions for heavy-duty applications in 22.5 inch format by the end of the year.
