New Continental Hybrid range

Continental has unveiled a new product line at last month's Brisbane Truck Show. The new Hybrid range is the result of a “rigorous R&D testing program” focusing on improving both durability and fuel efficiency.

According to Continental, retreadability was also high on the agenda when designing the new Hybrid range, so the company placed high value on bead construction, reinforced sidewalls and specially developed belt packages to improve durability.

“The HS Hybrid steer life expectancy and fuel economy have been maximised, due to its combination of optimised tread geometry, a new belt package and compounds,” the company stated.

“Its tyre pattern consists of wide shoulder ribs and narrow grooves, which results in even wear under changing load conditions on all axels and the special groove design avoids stone trapping.”

Wet traction has also been maximised as a result of the new siping technology, “which provides numerous grip edges and breaks the water film, creating a superior connection to the road,” according to Continental, who pointed out that the newly designed three-dimensional tread structure may also ensure a low rolling resistance and wear rates. “This also then delivers low fuel consumption and superior mileage simultaneously, resulting in delivering low overall driving costs.”

“The Commercial Vehicle Tyre division has the goal of ensuring economic mobility in goods transport, passenger transit and construction-site vehicles by offering tyres for a wide spectrum of applications and service conditions,” said Mitchell Golledge, Marketing Manager, Continental Tyres of Australia.
