Continental unveils new Conti EcoRegional truck tire line

Continental Tire has unveiled its newest truck tire line, the Conti EcoRegional HS3 and HD3, that cuts mileage costs and reduces CO2 emissions.

According to the company, the Conti EcoRegional family enables fleet operators to significantly increase the efficiency of their vehicles in regional transport.

The Conti EcoRegional HS3 and HD3 are the best solution for reducing CO2 emissions thanks to a new manufacturing process in combination with an innovative tread design for the steering axle and a rubber compound that is optimized for rolling resistance for the drive axle. Moreover, no sacrifices have been made in terms of the other significant tire properties such as mileage, robustness and traction. The Continental developers have been particularly successful in balancing the trade-off between mileage on the one hand, and rolling resistance and fuel efficiency on the other.

The Conti EcoRegional HS3, which was produced using the new Conti Diamond Technique production process, features an optimized tread surface pattern in the ground contact area with a modified tread groove geometry, reduced sipe width, and W-tread groove technology for particularly even abrasion. Together with a highly stable configuration of the circumferential longitudinal tread grooves, this enables greater mileage while also reducing fuel consumption. The use of sipes in the newly designed tread ribs provides additional grip edges that are important for the traction characteristics.

The Conti EcoRegional HD3 runs with the tried-and-tested tread concept of the Conti Hybrid Gen 3 line, but uses a new, innovative tread compound in the form of Conti InterLock Technology. It enables an unprecedented level of low rolling resistance with the same mileage, especially in regional and highway applications.

With the introduction of the Conti EcoRegional Line, Continental is presenting a product that is tailored to the new emissions regulations for truck manufacturers.

Continental manufactures the Conti EcoRegional product line in the following dimensions, whereby dimensions 295/80 R 22.5, 315/70 R 22.5 and 385/65 R 22.5 are now offered with the highest-permissible load index as standard:
