Comfortable driving with maximum efficiency.
An innovative compound balances out the conflict between wet performance and rolling resistance and brings it to an unprecedented new level. Newly developed compound mixture has a stabilizing effect on the tyre. All in all these lead to a decreased rolling resistance and efficient tyre use.
Compared to the proven ContiVanContact™ 200 the completely newly developed tread pattern of the VanContact™ Eco is characterized by a stable tread pattern design. This leads to a more equal divided pressure which visibly reduces abrasion. Furthermore it enhances the handling properties under heavy loads.
The VanContact™ Eco comes with an innovative groove design. With this technology we reach an optimal noise level comfort for a van tyre while keeping a consistently high wet performance.
Secure grip in wet conditions is crucial for safe driving. Performance is graded into classes, A to G (although D and G are not currently used). The stopping distance between a class A tire and a class F tire can be as much as 18 metres.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with each subsequent class through to G increasing fuel consumption by between 0.42 and 0.56 mpg for a car which does 36 mpg.
This is the external noise made by the tire and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tires.
