The Bridgestone Ecopia EP500 is a touring, summer tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. The model provides a secure summer weather traction and hydroplaning resistance. The ologic technology lowers the tire’s rolling resistance and minimizes the energy loss to ensure a fuel efficient performance. The maintained road contact upgrades the controllability, while the notched ribs of the tread decrease the braking distance with the stronger friction. The Ecopia EP500 reduces the road vibrations felt in the vehicle’s cabin with the closer road contact.
The ologic technology provides a larger diameter tire with a narrow tread to decrease the rolling resistance and fuel consumption.
The summer compound and the narrow asymmetric tread design improve the dry and wet weather grip on the road surface.
The treads three circumferential and angled lateral grooves prevent hydroplaning with their water dispersing capability.
The flat footprint’s constant road contact greatly upgrades the steering responsiveness and the driving stability.
The asymmetric tread’s notched rib pattern improves the friction between the tire and the road to shorten the braking distance.
The flat footprint closely follows the road surface, absorbing the shock of driving and lowering the road vibrations felt during the drive.
