Tyres EcoControl HP
Fulda, one of Germany's leading tyre brands, has announced a launch of its latest high performance (HP) summer tyre, EcoControl HP, well in time for the 2012 season. The new rubber has been extensively tested by the independent testing and certification organization TÜV SÜD Automotive. They reported back the tyre was "a well balanced performance tyre." And independent track results showed solid dry and wet braking outcomes and excellent rolling resistance.
the new tyre offers increased road contact when braking on dry surfaces, delivering up to 5% shorter braking distance on dry roads and on wet surfaces
The tyre’s extended biting edges cut the water layer in the contact patch, improving the tyre’s overall grip on the road surface with a 9% shorter braking distance in the wet
Fulda’s EcoControl HP high performance construction, with Engineered Compound Technology combined with the EcoTread design, has been specially developed to help reduce overall fuel consumption, with a 9% lower rolling resistance
