Ecopia H/L 422 Plus Technology & Benefits
The Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 Plus tire may be one of the new kids on the block, but it knows its way around the block and beyond.
The Ecopia H/L 422 Plus, introduced in 2018 to replace the Bridgestone Dueler Ecopia H/L 422, is engineered for long-lasting performance and improved fuel efficiency — all while offering all-season stability and a smooth, comfortable ride. It’s among the latest additions to Bridgestone’s Ecopia line of eco-friendly tires.
Made for crossovers, SUVs, and minivans, the Ecopia H/L 422 Plus touring tire provides:
- An innovative, computer-optimized tread pattern that paves the way for a secure, comfortable ride in all-season conditions. This tread pattern helps fight irregular wear, improves traction, and delivers comfort at the same time.
- Four full-depth grooves that disperse water to combat hydroplaning.
- Slots and sipes that produce “biting edges” to provide traction in conditions where grip might be diminished.
- Continuous tread ribs that offer a reliable grip and reduced road noise.

What makes the Ecopia H/L 422 Plus tire so eco-friendly?
The Ecopia H/L 422 Plus delivers those benefits while also being environmentally
conscious thanks to:
- Low rolling resistance: Tires with low rolling resistance are aimed at cutting down on the loss of energy as a tire rolls. As much as 15% of the fuel burned by a car can go toward fighting rolling resistance.
The silica tread compound of the Ecopia H/L 422 Plus is engineered with proprietary NanoPro-Tech, which leads to lower rolling resistance, as well as better handling in wet and dry conditions during all seasons, along with lower carbon emissions. Meanwhile, the fuel-saver compound in the sidewall of the Ecopia H/L 422 Plus boosts fuel efficiency by cutting down on the generation of heat.
Additionally, nylon-reinforced steel belts fortify the Ecopia H/L 422 Plus with strength and durability.
