CTA Launches New Coach Tyre
Continental Tire the Americas has unveiled a new steer and all-position tyre for long distance motor coaches. The HSL1 Coach, which the manufacturer reports has been submitted for verification under the US Environmental Protection Authority’s ‘SmartWay’ programme, is designed to offer a quiet ride along with low rolling resistance and fuel economy – these last two features are said to be aided by the compound and tread design used in the HSL1 Coach.
“The HSL1 Coach shows great promise in helping motor coach operators, and even recreational vehicle owners, to save money at the fuel pump while still offering the peace of mind of optimal handling. It’s a great balance of long mileage, excellent reliability and fuel savings,” said Clif Armstrong, Continental’s director of marketing for commercial vehicle tyres – The Americas.
