The trailer tyre is claimed to offer a longer service life and 15% less rolling resistance, compared to its predecessor, in regional and long-distance transport applications.
Constantin Batsch, Conti’s vice president for truck tires EMEA, states that the Hybrid HT3 offers a durable and fuel efficient trailer tyre aimed specifically at volume transport.
Its retreadable carcass improves the carbon footprint of transport companies and makes a positive contribution to sustainable and environmentally friendly goods transportation,” he says.
Looking at the detail, it provides for an axle load of 9 tons, while its smaller diameter and low profile maximise the internal load height within legal limits.
Conti says the optimised tyre contour and balanced load distribution results in an even wear pattern on the trailer tyre – so contributing to a long service life.
Conti Hybrid HT3 445/45 R 19.5 qualifies for the EU ‘B’ label on fuel efficiency.
