Continental has launched a new all-season tyre for airport ground handling vehicles that spares fleet operators from changing the tyres every season.
The new ContiRV20 All Season now extends Continental’s industrial tyre portfolio, and is available in sizes 16 and 16.5 inches.
Matthias-Stephan Müller of Continental Commercial Specialty Tires said: “This tyre is particularly designed for ground operation fleets within the airport environment, such as smaller tow tractors and baggage loaders.”
All tyres of this product line are marked with the M+S symbol, which stands for “Mud and Snow”. This is an indicator for tyres that are permitted for use within these weather conditions.
While creating the ContiRV20 All Season tyre, Continental says it focused on the three rib tread.
Müller added: “The high quantity of interlocked tread blocks increases the traction and improves the braking performance in both summer and winter conditions.
“Angled pocket sipes are not only used for optimum traction performance, but also provide the best possible steering capabilities.”
