Bridgestone Ecopia EP150
The Bridgestone Ecopia EP150 is a premium touring summer tyre that respects the environment while providing safety and comfort. It combines excellent environmental performance with stability, traction and responsive handling. As a result, the Ecopia EP150 is a tyre that provides high levels of safety.
Designed to reduce a car's carbon footprint, it improves mileage, reduces emissions and offers a more efficient ride. What's more, it still manages to deliver the reliability, durability and precision expected of a premium Bridgestone tyre.
Construction & Compound
The Ecopia EP150 utilises Bridgestone's patented Nano-Pro Technology. It cleverly controls the interaction between the elements of the tyre's compound, which helps conserve energy and reduce rolling resistance.
Furthermore, the lightweight belt material and the use of innovative construction technologies vastly reduces the weight of the tyre.
At the same time, the Ecopia EP150's tread pattern helps to further improve performance.
First of all, the tyre's centre blocks are connected by thin ribs. This ensures even weight distribution in the contact patch, as well as a higher braking force and better grip in wet conditions.
In addition to aiding wear life and helping reduce pattern noise, extra 3D connecting ribs also increase block stiffness for better handling performance, particularly when cornering.
Moreover, the deep, angled lug grooves on the tyre's shoulder provide the most effective braking edge. This further optimise the contact patch and reduce pattern noise. They also make the Ecopia EP150 more resistant to wear and reduce the risk of aquaplaning.
Finally, a convex block design for Adaptive Contact Surface (A.C.S.) results in reduced noise emissions and a more comfortable ride.
