Continental in Europe is broadening its construction tyre portfolio with the new Conti CrossTrac truck tyre for mixed on/off-road application.

Continental says that to fulfil the demanding requirements of the industry the new Conti CrossTrac tyres have been developed based on the latest truck tyre technologies with innovative tread designs and a state-of-the-art compound that provide a balanced flexibility with durability, traction, robustness and impressive chip, chunk and cut resistance for harsh off-road conditions. Other features inlcude low rolling resistance, high mileage and a smooth performance on paved roads.

All major sizes will be available as an intelligent tyre, already fitted with tyre sensors shipped from the factory. The intelligent sensors constantly measure temperature and air pressure from inside the tyre and provide data to Continental’s tyre monitoring systems ContiPressureCheck and ContiConnect to be displayed on the vehicles dashboard or on a web portal overseeing the entire fleet.

Continental says its truck tyres are designed for ultimate economy throughout their service lives and beyond, especially when it comes to the casing and that Conti CrossTrac tyres allow for multiple service lives. The ContiLifeCycle begins with the new tyre and continues with the premium hot and cold retreading solutions ContiRe and ContiTread, which provide a full, new, strong-performing tyre life.

“The projected growth of the construction industry will also increase the demand for construction machinery and, consequently, the need for highly specialised construction tyres,” said Constantin Batsch, Vice President Truck Tyres Replacement EMEA. “Our new Conti CrossTrac usefully complements our broad construction portfolio. Developed for safe, productive, efficient and sustainable construction logistics, it is bringing real added value to our customers in the construction segment.”
