Tighter belt cord angles help reduce heat buildup and penetrations to protect the casing. Improved bead design for increased durability.
Continental Tire's technologically-advanced bead core design offers structural durability to extend the life of your casing. Its longevity is due to distinctive features such as a tear-resistant compound at the steel cord edges, increased chafer cord density, and optimized chafer cord angle for improved stiffness across the body ply.
In addition to enhancing the bead core design, Continental Tire also reengineered the belt cord angles to protect the casing from penetrations and reduce heat build-up. By keeping the casing cool, the rubber and steel components in your truck tire or bus tire are protected from heat-related damage.
All this advanced engineering means maximum retreadability for your truck and bus tires, and the Lowest Overall Driving Cost for your fleet.
