The Conti eco contact EP (Economy Plus) is Continental's Passenger Summer tyre developed for the drivers of the Smart For two (Original Equipment on 2004-2006 model year vehicles).
-The Conti eco contact EP's low rolling resistance design helps save fuel and reduce vehicle CO2 emissions while providing traction in dry and wet road conditions.
-Conti eco contact EP tyres feature a silica-enhanced compound into an asymmetric design with solid tread blocks and a continuous rib on the outboard shoulder to promote responsiveness and cornering stability, while a continuous centre rib provides constant rubber-to-road contact to reduce noise and control the longitudinal forces experienced when braking.
-Circumferential tread grooves and independent tread blocks on the inboard tread resist hydroplaning and enhance wet weather traction.
-The tyre's internal structure includes twin steel belts to stabilize the tread area on top of a polyester casing that promotes consistent ride quality.
