Intelligent Tyres – Continental iTyres

Continental paved the way for intelligent tyres in 2013 with the release of the ContiPressureCheck tyre pressure monitoring system and now with its iTyre range, the premium tyre manufacturer is unveiling an even more user-friendly digital tyre check solution.

ContiPressureCheck sensors, used for measuring tyre pressure and temperature, are pre-installed in the tyres at the factory which saves fleet operators valuable installation time and mounting costs. Continental ensures that the sensors are correctly installed and positioned within the tyres. Currently, 22 of the major tyre sizes – especially those in the Conti Hybrid and Conti EcoPlus tyre lines – are available as iTyre tyres.

The ContiPressureCheck system also helps to reduce fuel consumption and tyre wear, thereby increasing mileage. The increased fuel efficiency of trucks and the longer service life of their tyres reduces fleet operating costs. ContiPressureCheck also helps to improve sustainability thanks to reduced CO2 emissions, while optimum tyre pressure enhances the safety of all road users.

The iTyre portfolio is growing all the time. ContiPressureCheck sensors can also be purchased separately and installed in the tyres by customers.
