For excellent grip and mileage

Quickfacts

  • Wide shoulder ribs
  • Finely structured rib profile with high density of lateral grooves and sipes
  • Compound for optimal grip
  • Two-phase tread design: After the winter tread has worn down, a steering tire with fewer sipes and excellent fuel efficiency remains
HSW2_22.5

Technical details

Grip | Traction | Safety

  • Deeper and higher density of lateral grooves and sipes for better grip over lifetime (compared with predecessor)
  • Adjusted number and distribution of grip edges and open shoulders for good grip and high durability
  • Optimized tread compound

Mileage

  • Increased tread volume (compared with predecessor)
  • Shoulder block tie-bars for more durable tread
  • Two-phase tread for all-season use at HSW 2 SCANDINAVIA and HTW 2 SCANDINAVIA

Retreadability

  • Steel cord chafer and air-keep inner liner for sustainable casing value
  • Triangular belt designed also for excellent traction in winter conditions
  • Premium Goods casing with C2 guarantee

Fuel efficiency

  • Increased tire pattern rigidity reducing deformations and thus lowering rolling resistance
  • Less energy loss due to optimized footprint 
  • Well balanced belt-to-tread width ratio to improve deflection on the tread area for better rolling resistance
  • Air-Keep inner liner to maintain proper inflation pressure for longer time

EU Tire Label

Wet grip

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.

Fuel efficiency

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.

Noise level

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 values, there are also icons − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (for C1 tires only).


With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
