All Ecopia EP422 tires feature fuel-saving technologies, including:
- Fuel Saver Sidewall Compound that helps lower rolling resistance by both returning more energy back to the tire and reducing heat generation compared to normal sidewalls.
- Silica to improve traction in wet conditions by increasing flexibility of the tread compound.
- NanoPro-Tech improves rolling resistance and helps contribute to fuel-efficiency and CO2 reduction by controlling the interaction between polymers, filler materials and other rubber chemicals at the molecular level.
- Circumferential grooves to help channel water out of the footprint area to improve resistance to hydroplaning.
