ContiSportContact 5

The ContiSportContact 5, Continental has developed a tyre which is equally suitable for sporty cars & SUVs with sporty driving characteristics. With this new development, the tyre engineers have made significant progress in comparison to the popular predecessor ContiSportContact 3:

  • Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions.
  • Excellent road grip and safety when cornering.
  • Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage.

This was made possible due to a new compound which focuses on maximum power transmission and provides low rolling resistance whilst driving normally. This rubber compound which carries the name "BlackChilli" uses the various vibrations of the tyre

ContiEcoContact 5.

Combining short braking distances on wet and dry roads with low rolling resistance has in the past always been considered extremely problematic. Europe's leading tyre manufacturer Continental has now launched a product which resolves this problem with apparent ease - the new ContiEcoContact 5. The tyre engineers did, however, have to tread new ground in terms of all the tyre elements involved - casing, compound, tyre contour and tread pattern design - in order to achieve the high level of progress.

The main target conflicts when reducing rolling resistance relate to the safety-relevant characteristics of a tyre. This means that the conflict between rolling resistance and handling can be influenced via the design, whilst the tyre compound can assist in the problem area of low rolling resistance and short braking distances in the wet; changing the tyre contour allows mileage performance to be enhanced, and the tread pattern can have a positive effect on braking characteristics in the wet. The sum total of the potential improvements helps the new tyre to achieve a considerably better overall performance with even more balanced driving characteristics. The engineers at Continental therefore focused on all these areas in order to meet the high requirements made on the new tyre for compact cars and large saloons.

ContiSportContact™ 5 P

The latest innovation from the Continental experts. A ultra high performance tyre that combines maximum safety and driving pleasure.

The ContiSportContact™ 5 P is individually adjusted to meet the specific requirements of the front and rear axle positions. With precise steering and maximum grip under all conditions the vehicles perform to their full potential on the road. The ContiSportContact™ 5 P doesn’t only go fast – it stops fast too. It is therefore recommended by leading experts.

ContiSportContact 3

The ContiSportContact 3 high performance tyre gives excellent safety at high speeds. Its asymmetric tread pattern design provides shorter braking distances, excellent handling and precise steering response, while the supple compound and unique tread grooves give maximum grip in all conditions and outstanding performance in the wet.

The shallow side of the 3D groove gives greater tread block stability and improves road contact, which results in shorter braking distances on dry roads.

The step side of the 3D groove makes the edge of the tread block extremely angular, enabling the tyre to cut through the water on the road, much like a windscreen wiper, for exceptionally shorter braking distances in the wet.

The special shape of the 3D grooves means that as the water flows through, a swirl effect is created. That water is thus dispersed more rapidly and the risk of aquaplaning is reduced.

ContiEcoContact

Designed for small and compact cars, the ContiEcoContact 3 has low rolling resistance giving reduced fuel consumption and has excellent wear properties to ensure high mileage. In addition, its asymmetrical tread design provides excellent traction on wet and dry roads and shorter braking distances.

ContiPremiumContact

The ContiPremiumContact 2 has a unique 3D tread groove which gives it optimal braking performance on both wet and dry surfaces, excellent protection against aquaplaning, precise handling and unbeatable driving stability.

ContinentalPremiumContact

Excellent braking performance on wet and dry roads resulting in outstanding protection against aquaplaning. Improved grip when cornering and precise steering response.

Continental SportContact 2

Continental SportContact 2 summer tyre is designed to meet the demanding driving needs of the luxury saloons, sports coupes and sporty cars. The tyre is designed with Bionic Contours which increases the braking power and offers precise steering response.

BiNet, the special tread compound helps the vehicle gain good traction and enhance the performance of the vehicle in both wet and dry conditions. The rigid ribbed tread pattern of SportContact 2 helps in maintaining the balance of the vehicle even during high speed and this feature also offers excellent cornering stability and braking power.

The Advanced Mold Contour (AMC) of the tyre narrows the tyre when moving and widens when braking. This reduces the braking distance and ensures higher cornering stability.

Continental Sport Contact

The Continental Sport Contact summer tyre is designed to meet the demanding driving needs of the luxury saloons, sports coupes and sporty cars. Precise steering response and cornering stability. Excellent grip in the wet and shorter braking distances. Low noise level ensures a comfortable drive. The tyre not only feels good but looks good too with its sporty design.

4X4 / SUV Tyres

Conti4x4Contact

Fitted as original equipment to a number of 4x4 and SUV vehicles, such as Honda CRV, Freelander and VW Tiguan, the Conti4x4Contact tyre is a particularly quiet and comfortable tyre on road and gives good protection against aquaplaning. It has superb traction both on road and in light off-road use.

ContiCrossContact UHP

Designed for high performance 4x4/SUV vehicles, the bionic contour of the ContiCrossContact UHP tyre narrows the tyre when moving and widens when braking. This reduces the braking distance and ensures higher cornering stability. The tyre's asymmetrical profile and outer rigidity guarantees exceptional cornering and an exhilarating drive without compromising on safety. The circumferential drainage grooves provide excellent protection against aquaplaning.

The ContiCrossContact UHP is fitted as original equipment on numerous performance 4x4/SUV vehicles, such as Volvo XC90, Mercedes M-Class and BMW X5.
