28 May 2015
Hannover, Germany-based Continental Commercial Specialty Tires (CST) is expanding its comprehensive solid tire portfolio, with the Continental CS20 range now available in 6.00-9, 7.00-12, and 7.00-15 variants. With its excellent driving qualities, Continental said that the tire was ideal for use on airport tow tractors. Dr Michael Maertens, Managing Director of Continental CST, said: “We focus on providing customized solutions for specific demands of our customers. With the Continental CS20, we are now offering a tire that is perfectly suited for challenging airport applications combining low vibrations, high cutting resistance and low maintenance. We have already received orders for the Continental CS20 from two major international airports.” With a broad portfolio of specialty tires, Continental has been satisfying the specific requirements of airlines and airports for many years: from pallet and container transporters, in-freight handling and service trucks to aircraft pushback tractors. The tire manufacturer is now expanding its portfolio for ground handling vehicles with the Continental CS20. The tread of the solid tire features an innovative double-L design with a rounded groove contour for excellent traction and self-cleaning characteristics, while the closed shoulder design minimizes vibrations compared to tread block designs resulting in a quieter and smoother ride.
