Where fuel efficiency meets powerful performance
Good things take time. That's why, to lower the rolling resistance of the Conti EcoRegional HS3, we used the Conti Diamond Technique. Similar to the long time of diamond formation, it implies that the steer tyres are cured at relatively low temperatures, which means it takes longer. This gives the compound ingredients more time to react with one another and crosslink more effectively.
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tyre will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tyres deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing all the way down to class E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tyre, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A down to C.
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tyres only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tyres.
