New generation of the Conti EcoPlus tyres

The launch of the new generation of the Conti EcoPlus tyre family is now underway, with the first hot retreaded 3rd generation tyres now leaving the ContiLifeCycle plant in Hanover.

As with all 3rd generation Continental tyres, the new range is based on an improved, retreadable premium casing with reinforced steel cord beads and is completely regroovable.

The ContiRe EcoPlus HT3 is the retreaded version of the new trailer tyre Conti EcoPlus HT3. Its newly adapted polymer rubber compounds for treads and sidewalls, its stable, closed shoulder belts and the improved tread concept "Plus Volume Pattern" significantly improve rolling resistance (with a decrease of up to 26 percent compared to its predecessor) and handling characteristics of the new tyre.

The optimised grip in the newly adjusted tread compound transfers the trailer's cornering forces and high share of the braking torque to the road. In addition, the pyramid-shaped triangular ribs integrated into the base of the tread groove stabilise the trailer tyre against flexing in the tread width.
