SOLID ALL-ROUNDER

Torque (Singapore) - - EVENT -

Tyres are the car’s only con­nec­tions to the road. Each tyre’s con­tact patch, roughly about the width of the palm of your hand, has to pro­vide grip, trans­fer power and ab­sorb sur­face im­per­fec­tions. The new Bridge­stone Ecopia EP300 doesn’t just ful­fil this cri­te­rion. It goes fur­ther by be­ing a tyre that does it all.

Apart from pro­vid­ing grip and help­ing to en­sure a com­fort­able ride, the Ecopia EP300 also of­fers lower rolling re­sis­tance. This means your en­gine doesn’t have to work as hard to turn the driven wheels, thereby sav­ing fuel.

Now, en­thu­si­asts might tell you that eco-friendly tyres are a poor choice in rainy weather. But the Ecopia EP300 makes no com­pro­mises when it rains. Be­cause its op­ti­mised crown shape and rounded rib edges have the ad­van­tage of de­liv­er­ing more even con­tact pres­sure and added stiff­ness, which im­prove grip in wet con­di­tions.

Best of all, the Ecopia EP300’s newly de­signed tread pat­tern gives it a more uni­form wear rate, so that even as the tyre reaches the end of its ser­vice life, it will con­tinue to per­form un­til it is fi­nally time for the Bridge­stone all-rounder to be re­placed.
