New Conti Hybrid HT3 SR Developed for Regional Transport in Severe Applications


Continental has revealed its new tyre the Conti Hybrid HT3 SR, which has been developed to respond to transport necessities in the south of Europe where the asphalt is more abrasive and the temperatures are higher than in the rest of the continent meaning that some of the most durable applications exist for this segment in regional transport.

New Conti Hybrid HT3 SR Announced

The Conti Hybrid HT3 SR represents an extension in the Conti Hybrid HT3 range of tyres for trailers and form a part of the new strategy for these products, in which the company has tried to adapt to the specific characteristics of each market. The Conti Hybrid range of tyres is redefining regional transport, thanks to its strong performance in winding and mountainous motorways and its ability to adapt to long-distance journeys has managed to increased its mileage by up to 20% and improved fuel consumption by 6%. This efficiency combined with a considerable improvement in the life of the tyre assures maximum profitability for fleets.

The Conti Hybrid HT3 SR is specifically designed for the most severe applications inside the regional transport sector such as tipper lorry transport, food or for agricultural logistics. The tread design guarantees a balance between mileage and robustness. Furthermore, the length of the Hybrid trailer introduces specific improvements in the tread compound to favour resistance to cuts and tears.


The range is completed by the Conti Hybrid HT3 and HT3 HL. The Conti Hybrid HT3 that has performed well since its launch in 2016 has been designed for heavy goods transport in variably motorway conditions. It's a product capable of fulfilling a wide range of use, mileage and low rolling resistance. The tyre offers high performance in fuel consumption, meaning it is the ideal tyre for motorway transport and for transport on regional roads. 

The Conti Hybrid HT3 HL that substitutes the HTR2 XL model has been developed for the heaviest goods transport in Europe. The tyre offers a loading index of 164, which is higher than the previous model. On top of this, the product has improved its retreadability, giving a second life to the casing. The sidewall incorporates the HL acronym and the weight pictogram with the "High Load" inscription. The product also has a B rating in wet grip and in energy efficiency ion the tyre label.
