Tyre of the Month May – Bridgestone Ecopia EP150

28th May 2016

With summer just around the corner, The Malvern Tyres Group have chosen the superior Bridgestone Ecopia EP150 as our tyre of the month. From Bridgestone’s most environmentally friendly range, the Ecopia EP150 is an excellent tyre, optimised for summer conditions.


The Bridgestone Tire Corporation was founded in Japan in 1931 and based upon solely Japanese technology. As the automobile industry expanded, Bridgestone became Japan’s largest tyre manufacturer and they grew to become one of the biggest manufacturers of tyres in the world, a title they retain today.

Fuel Efficient

The Bridgestone Ecopia range was designed to reduce carbon emissions and fuel consumption, helping the brand to get one step closer to their dream of ‘Ecological Utopia.’ Its efficient performance is thanks to its innovative Nano-Protech compound which works to effectively disperse silica particles. This reduces friction, energy loss and rolling resistance, and is further benefitted by the lightweight construction of the tyre.

Superior Wet Performance

High angle lugs provide enhanced resistance against aquaplaning as they offer an optimised footprint that retains contact with the surface of the road. This is further benefitted by wide grooves across the tyre which rapidly remove water from the tyre, reducing the risk of aquaplaning. In addition, rib-linked centre blocks achieve a superior wet grip as they enable pressure to be distributed more evenly.

Quiet and Comfortable Ride

The Ecopia EP150 offers comfort whilst driving thanks to its convex block design. This works to prevent air volume velocity and this provides lower noise emissions. In addition, this tyre provides consistent surface contact providing perfect road holding, maximised steering and regular wear.
