The Bridgestone Ecopia R268 is a highway terrain, all season tire manufactured for commercial vehicles. It was made to be mounted in all axle positions on the vehicle.
The tire promotes a secure all weather performance. The detailed symmetric ribbed pattern features a high number of rib edges sipes that increase the number of biting edges. This enables the tire to firmly grip the road surface in dry, wet and winter weather surface conditions. The model’s special all season compound keeps the rubber flexibility throughout the year, which ensues a safer performance. The circumferential grooves prevent hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from below the footprint, maintaining the tire’s constant contact with the road surface. This combination guarantees the tire’s performing capability.
The model’s special tread design, stronger structure and durable tire compound help extend its usability. The NanoPro-Tech compound is wear-resistant and it slows the tread wear rate down greatly. The full steel belt structure stabilizes the tread elements and prevent tread flexing during the drive. The symmetric ribbed pattern features a special groove shape, which prevents rib tearing, a waved channel design and an optimized rib distribution to boost the even pressure circulation. The equally spread out driving forces, in this manner, avoid irregular tread wear formations, successfully lengthening the tread life and the tire’s usability.
The reinforced internal structure improves the durability. The strengthened full-length steel belts help maintain the tire’s ideal shape under the load and driving pressure. As a result, the tire’s shape does not deform during the model’s performance. This enables the tire to carry and withstand heavy loads with ease, boosting its load capacity. The special sidewall protector ribs, on the other hand, help resist impact and curb damage. They protect the sidewall from damage that may lead to a shortened service life. The tread design’s groove pattern features Stone Rejecting Platforms that eject rocks stuck between the tread elements. This actively prevents stone retention from drilling rocks into the tire’s casing and harming its tread area. The better load handling ability and excellent damage resistance ensures a secure year round performance.
The model was designed with the Ecopia technology. This technology makes the combine the tread design, tire compound and the internal structure to decrease the tire’s rolling resistance. The symmetric ribbed pattern with the flat footprint closely follows the road surface and eases the driving pressure off the tire by stabilizing the tread elements. The NanoPro-Tech compound decreases energy loss during the drive with the polymer in its rubber compound to avoid heat build-up along the tread area. The optimal tire shape does not deform and maintains the tire’s contact with the road surface at all times. These enhancements significantly reduce the rolling resistance, which in turn lowers the vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This results in a fuel efficient and environmentally friendly driving experience.
The Ecopia R268 is easily controlled on various road conditions. The maintained road contact of the symmetric ribbed pattern and the ideal shape work together to increase the steering responsiveness and the driving stability. As a result, the steering becomes faster and more precise, while the structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting the model. This enables the driver to confidently maneuver the vehicle at all times.
