The new Hybrid HS3+ is the new Continental commercial vehicle steer tyre for regional and long haul use.
Continental Tyres has unveiled a new commercial vehicle steer tyre, designed for high mileage and even wear during both regional and long-haul use – the Conti Hybrid HS3+.
The new Conti Hybrid HS3+ joins the market as an extension to the existing Conti Hybrid HS3 range from Continental and will supersede the Conti Hybrid HS3 in six key market sizes.
Offering the same benefits as its sister product, but now with improved performance, the Conti Hybrid HS3+ steer axle tyre features an upgraded tread design, which further improves the robustness and mileage potential of the tyre.
Building on the success of its Conti Hybrid HS3 counterpart, the Conti Hybrid HS3+ features the same larger volume tread pattern and Continental’s own ‘Hybrid Steer Compound’ ensuring high mileage.
However, with the new refined tread design of the Conti Hybrid HS3+ Continental’s engineers have introduced new inner groove technology with full-depth pocket sipes for even wear and enhanced water displacement for improved performance in the wet as well as new ‘W-groove’ technology, which enables an even distribution of forces along the groove when cornering, reducing stress on the tyre and extending service life.
The new steer tyres will be available in six size variants, with operators able to request the Conti Hybrid HS3+ 315/80 R22.5 and 385/65 R22.5 from August 2020. The Conti Hybrid HS3+ 385/55 R22.5 and 315/70 R22.5 will be available from September, with the Conti Hybrid HS3+ 295/80 R22.5 and 385/65 R22.5 High Load versions expected later in 2020.
