The Conti Hybrid HT3 trailer tyre has landed a “Red Dot: Best of the Best” design award. The award, given in the product design category, pertains to the size 445/45 R 19.5 and 435/50 R 19.5 fitments; Continental says the Red Dot jury awarded the Conti Hybrid HT3 for its “incomparable design quality and groundbreaking construction.”
“The Conti Hybrid HT3 445/45 R 19.5 and 435/50 R 19.5 were assessed by an independent expert jury of 41 specialists from around the world for innovation, technical quality, functionality, and environmental impact,” comments Constantin Batsch, vice-president of Continental’s truck tyre business in the EMEA region. “The Red Dot: Best of the Best award is recognition at the highest level of the trailer tyre’s excellent product design. We are delighted that the standards that are always at the heart of our tyre development have been specially recognised, and we are just as proud to accept this second award as we were the iF Design Award.”
Receiving more than 17,000 submissions every year, the Red Dot Design Award is one of the best-known design competitions in the world. As well as being published in the Red Dot Design Yearbook, award-winning products will be displayed in the Red Dot Design Museum in Germany.
