Continental announced the launch of a new range of summer tyres for light commercial trucks and vans Continental VanContact Eco. As stated by the German manufacturer, the novelty combines ride comfort with improved performance, maximum fuel efficiency and increased mileage.
An innovative composition of resinols, which is made of new commercial tyre Continental Eco VanContact, balances the conflict between characteristics such as wet grip and rolling resistance, and brings this balance to a new level. Completely redesigned compared to the previous model ContiVanContact 200 tread design promotes even pressure distribution in the contact area, significantly reducing wear and improves handling at high loads. The decrease in the level of road noise while maintaining high operational performance on wet surfaces required new innovative design of the grooves.
By results of the conducted internal tests VanContact Continental Eco surpasses its predecessor ContiVanContact 200 in handling and braking on wet surfaces by 7 per cent, in mileage and in rolling resistance by 10 percent and the noise level decreased by 13 percent.
New commercial tire is available in six sizes: 215/65 R15 104/102T, 205/65 R16 107/105T, 215/65 R16 109/107T, 225/65 R16 112/110T, 235/65 R16 115/113R and 215/60 R17 109/107T.
