New winter tyres for compact and mid-size cars. The new ContiWinterContact TS 850 will hit the road with a multitude of innovative technical features. It offers even better grip than its predecessor on typical wintry roads, as well as shorter braking distances in the wet, enhanced handling, extended mileage and a further reduction in rolling resistance. To make the tyre safer, more cost-efficient and eco-friendlier, Continental engineers making sure all of the winter tyre’s structural parts are truly state-of-the-art.
For compact and medium range vehicles. The perfect tyre for cold and wet weather conditions. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Improved braking performance on snow, ice and wet roads. Multiple testwinner in independent magazine tests, e.g. Auto Motor Sport (issue 20/2013, 225/50 R17) or ADAC 'good' (Issue 10/2013, 225/45 R 17)
Optimal braking and steering in winter conditions. A high number of block edges and sipes increase traction and braking performance on snow and ice. At the same time, more edges are available to transfer lateral forces when negotiating bends or changing lanes at high speed. This ensures perfect handling and outstanding grip even in extreme driving situation.
Short stopping distances on ice. Thanks to a high degree of lamination, additional sipe edges break through the thin water film that forms on the ice in a similar way to a windscreen wiper. This results in outstanding braking performance, helping you to come to a stop faster.
Comfortable ride and improved rolling resistance. By using a harder apex and additional bead reinforcement, lateral forces can be better transferred when steering. Thanks to the more flexible sidewall area, less energy is lost when deflecting or rebounding. This results in a noticeably more comfortable drive, perfect handling and less rolling resistance.
The Winter i*cept RS provides excellent grip performance and outstanding snow and ice traction. By applying high-density kerfs and optimised profile analysis technology, snow and ice traction is strengthened while low rolling resistance increases fuel economy and reduces carbon dioxide emissions. Optimised pitch sequence also reduces noise, providing a smooth, comfortable ride.
Four channeled straight grooves
Directional tread pattern helps channel water and slush away from the tyre.
Zigzag centre block groove
Enhances snow traction performance.
Wave kerf technology
Arranged kerfs towards diagonal directions provide improved grip on slippery surfaces.
Maximum contact area improves ice grip performance.
Designed for compact cars, the Semperit Master-Grip handles serpentines and gradients, even under extreme wintry conditions. That‘s why the tire deserves the rating “alpine proven”. For compact and medium range cars. Superior on wintry roads.
New winter tyre for compact and mid-sized cards providing a balanced performance in all winter conditions.
Aqua slush edge grooves
Compared to the exisiting product a lateral groove focused design provides maximised lateral grip. Prevents hydroplaning through effectively pushing out water in to the side direction on wet roads through an optimised profile and an effective lateral groove form.
Ice grip slits
Provides improved cornering performance with the internal sub-grooves.
Grip claw technology
Improves snow traction by applying sharp 3D edge.
3D winter sipe
Ensures optimal winter performance and enhanced driving stability by minimising block movement on wet and snowy roads.
High grip silica compound
Improved snow / wet traction and lowered rolling resistance.
Jointless full cover reinforced belt
Ideal tread strength.
Wide 2 steel belt layer
Ensures optimal tread stiffness and improves handling performance.
Adoption of high hardness bead filler
Improves handling and steering response.
Ultra high strength bead wire
Improves uniformity and durability of the bead position.
