Fuel Efficiency Meets High Mileage: Conti EcoRegional Generation 3+ with Reduced Rolling Resistance

08/03/2022
  • Update to Conti EcoRegional range: innovative tread compounds and special production processes
  • Conti EcoRegional HS3+ and Conti EcoRegional HD3+: excellent fuel efficiency helps to protect the environment
  • 3PMSF symbol indicates suitability for year-round use in all weather conditions

The Conti EcoRegional Generation 3+ tyre line is ideally suited to mixed regional and long-distance haulage. It has been developed for journeys involving multiple deliveries over the course of a day, driving in heavy traffic and winding roads. The tyres’ standout characteristics include reduced rolling resistance and superior fuel efficiency, with their low CO2 emissions contributing to sustainable mobility and future-proof logistics. “The Conti EcoRegional HS3+ for the steering axle and Conti EcoRegional HD3+ for the drive axle represent an uncompromising upgrade for this tyre family,” comments Hinnerk Kaiser, Head of Product Development Bus and Truck Tyres at Continental.

The Conti EcoRegional Generation 3+ tyre line: ideally suited to mixed regional and long-distance haulage. 

Low rolling resistance, optimum traction, long service life

The new Conti EcoRegional HS3+ retains the innovative tread design of its tried-and-tested predecessor. The new-generation tyre once again features pocket sipes to minimise uneven wear and improve water dispersion for optimised performance in the wet. Full-depth sipes continue across 50 percent of the rib width. Specially designed groove geometries ensure uniform transfer of power together with a long tyre service life. A modified, innovative compound in the tread helps with an overall reduction in the tyre’s rolling resistance.
Like the Conti EcoRegional HS3+, the new Conti EcoRegional HD3+ cannot be distinguished externally from the model it replaces. The proven low-void design with a high number of gripping edges in the tread delivers low deformation, low rolling resistance and high mileage. Special 3D sipes reinforce tread stability and durability. A substantial reduction in rolling resistance was achieved through the implementation of an enhanced production process for the drive axle. A modified casing construction improves rolling resistance without causing any negative impact on mileage.

Enhanced production process: Conti Diamond Technique

“The tyres in the Conti EcoRegional Generation 3+ line are the result of an enhanced production process that lowers rolling resistance without sacrificing mileage performance,” explains Hinnerk Kaiser. “This process involves curing the tyres at a relatively low temperature for longer and is known as the Conti Diamond Technique. It has the benefit of giving the polymers and carbon particles more time to react with one another and crosslink effectively, resulting in less internal friction within the compound. This in turn improves the rolling resistance.”

Further pluses: year-round usability

Both the Conti EcoRegional HS3+ and the Conti EcoRegional HD3+ bear the 3PMSF marking on their sidewalls, indicating their suitability for wintry conditions. This means these tyres are designed for year-round use in all weathers, including on winter roads and in adverse weather conditions. Certain tyre sizes can be ordered with “intelligent” properties; i.e. they leave the factory already equipped with sensors.
The tyres are available in the following dimensions:

Conti EcoRegional HS3+
315/70R22.5
315/80R22.5
385/55R22.5
385.65R22.5

Conti EcoRegional HD3+
315/70R22.5
315/80R22.5
