Conti Scandinavia HT3 - Well prepared for winter
Maximum safety and steering stability, thanks to the proven pocket sipe technology. Very good rolling resistance and mileage performance due to two-layer tread construction. Special Generation 3 winter compound against harsh winter conditions.
A proven combination of different siping technologies guarantees maximum safety under harsh winter conditions. The special winter pattern ensures firm grip and traction on snow and ice.
The Conti Scandinavia is the ideal solution for demanding winter conditions:
- 10 %* better braking on ice
- 30 %* better acceleration on snow
- 35 %* better braking in snow
- To achieve maximum braking benefits, Conti Scandinavia should be mounted on all axles
* compared to a premium regional tire
The new tread compound provides significant improvements in rolling resistance at constant mileage performance. The sidewall compound adds to the improvements in rolling resistance, reducing fuel consumption further. The two-layer tread construction combines high mileage performance in the cap compound with significant rolling resistance improvements in the base compound.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
