Continental Tire the Americas LLC announced the launch of the Conti EcoPlus HT3, the first trailer tire in a new truck tire generation for the long haul goods sector.
The premium tire for the trailing axle has been developed for maximum cost effectiveness, incorporating greater fuel efficiency, long service life and retread ability.
The pyramid-shaped triangular bars in the base of these tread grooves stabilize the new Conti EcoPlus HT3 against flexing in the tread, while its closed ribs and continuous shoulder provide optimal straight line tracking. These design features add stability and prevent distortion, which is especially demanding for maneuvering tasks typical for trailers, while giving a wider contact surface area for better rolling resistance.
The Conti EcoPlus HT3’s tread compound is also optimized for rolling resistance in a two-layer construction. The cap compound of the tread ensures optimal contact with the road surface for long service life, while the special compound of the tread base on the four-layer triangular belt casing reduces the heat generation in the crown for maximum reduction in rolling resistance.
Finally, Continental engineers added the new Fuel Saving Edge that relocates the rubber away from belt edges, where it’s most susceptible to hysteresis and heat buildup, and moves it to the center ribs where it’s needed for longer mileage.
Conti EcoPlus HT3 is now available in the North American markets in sizes 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 285/75R24.5 and 295/75R22.5, load range G and in 255/75R22.5 load range H.
