12/05/2016
  • Continental rounds off product range for regional distribution transport
  • Conti Hybrid HT3 385/55 R 22.5 with EU label "B" in the categories "fuel efficiency" and "grip in the wet"
  • Specially developed tyre family designed for up to 20% more mileage and 6% less fuel consumption

The trailer tyre Conti Hybrid HT3 385/55 R 22.5 completes Continental's Conti Hybrid range, which was developed specifically for combined use on regional roads and motorways. In addition to the outstanding mileage and fuel efficiency that characterise all the products in this tyre family, the Conti Hybrid HT3 385/55 R 22.5 offers optimum wet-grip behaviour. The trailer tyre has been awarded with the EU label "B" thanks to its reliable handling during braking on wet roads. With specially developed rubber compounds, Conti Hybrid HT3 385/55 R 22.5 can also help to achieve ambitious fuel saving targets.

 

The new tread compound of the Conti Hybrid HT3 385/55 R 22.5 provides maximum mileage. The optimised combination of the rubber compound in the tread, the special fuel-saving sidewall and an improved groove geometry all help to reduce fuel consumption by 6%. The long-term fuel savings potential of the Conti Hybrid HT3 385/55 R 22.5 mean that it was also awarded EU label "B" in the "Fuel Efficiency" category. Like all Conti Hybrid tyres, the Conti Hybrid HT3 385/55 R 22.5 trailer tyre can also be retreaded. Newly introduced regrooving indicators in the tread profile make it easier to perform regrooving properly in order to achieve additional mileage with minimal rolling resistance.

 

With the Conti Hybrid product range, the premium German tyre manufacturer Continental offers the right tyres for the ever-increasing number of vehicles used in distribution transport. The tyres in the Conti Hybrid family are precisely matched to each other and specifically designed for regional transport with use of motorways. The products in this tyre range offer maximum mileage, optimum traction and significantly reduce fuel consumption and allow fleet operators to optimise costs over the long term ensuring that their fleet is highly cost-effective. 

 

The Conti Hybrid tyre portfolio also includes trailer tyres with small diameters and high axle loads which have been specially developed for volume transport. The low profile tyres recently received a number of awards. For its superior design quality and ground-breaking design, Conti Hybrid HT3 445/45 R 19.5 received both the iF Design Award and the renowned Red Dot Design Award.
