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.
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to class E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing for each subsequent class through to E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tire, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A to C.
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tires only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
