Unlimited driving fun thanks to excellent grip.
With the launch of 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 camparison 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.
For high-performance and luxury vehicles. The performance tyre, with outstanding handling and control.
Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. With our Black Chilli Technology you have excellent road grip and handling just as safety when cornering. Highly recommended by Auto Bild in their summer tyre test 2014 (sizes tested: 225/50 R 17 W/Y).
Excellent road grip and handling just as safety when cornering. The macro-block design of the tyre’s outside shoulder provides a larger contact area, which can therefore adapt optimally to the road surface. The ContiSportContact™ 5 offers improved road grip and thus more safety when cornering.
Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions. When braking, the tyre has a high natural frequency within the compound. Short-chain polymers in the Black Chilli compound of the ContiSportContact™ 5 react to this braking frequency and thus provide optimal energy absorption. The resulting heat shortens the braking distance on wet and dry roads.
Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage. At a constant speed, the vibrations in the compound are significantly lower. The long-chain polymers within the compound can release the absorbed energy better, resulting in considerably reduced rolling resistance. Thus, the tyre runs more easily and remains cool – for a higher mileage and a reduced fuel consumption.
The two central grooves of the NS-2, along with the v-shaped tread of the tyre, improve the drainage of water on the tyre surface and hence reduce the risk aquaplaning.
When dry, the v-shaped tread ribs ensure a uniform pressure distribution so that the entire contact surface of the tyre can be used for power transmission.
Computer similated V-shaped drainage sub-grooves increase resistance to hydroplaning at high speed running through deep water.
Two-in-one pitches and variable width tread profile help to reduce pattern noise and provide a quieter comfort.
Shoulder edge sipes ensure even and prolonged tread wear.
The NS-20 is Nankang’s new high tech product and was developed for the highest standards. It unifies improved handling with minimal noise levels thanks to a new silicone compound in the tread and features excellent wet grip, extraordinary curve stability and high mileage.
4 straight wide grooves enhance tire drainage efficiency and maneuverability on wet road condition.
The two sub straight grooves on tire shoulders assist the main grooves drainage efficiency and reduce tread wear.
The kerfs can reduce pattern noise caused by tire rolling.
Sipes on tire shoulder reduce tire block rigidity, lower the noise form road, and increase comfort ability.
NANKANG design team creates NS-20 with 5 pitches computer simulation technology to decrease noise at high speed.
New silica compound makes NS-20 have excellent grip ability on both dry and wet surface.
For sporty driving in all vehicles classes. Exceptionally good in all driving conditions.
The Bravuris 3HM delivers what the affix 'HM' promises: High Mileage!
Thanks to minimal wear you can be sure to go further - with regard to mileage as well as superb driving comfort.
The Bravuris 3HM is a well-balanced tire that perfectly combines greater mileage with confident handling in all driving situations, offering extraordinary value for money.
Precise handling and good directional stability on winding roads.
The high lateral stiffness due to closed shoulders with macroblocks lead to a superb transmission of lateral forces at minor steering angles. The effect of excellent handling on winding roads is complemented by intermediate ribs which guarantee good directional stability.
Short wet braking distances.
The large number of gripping edges provided by sipes and the high number of pitches improve the contact with the road surface. The state of the art tread compound also guarantees optimum adhesion and short stopping distances on wet road surfaces.
The wide, flat contour and a high number of pitches and sipes evenly distribute the pressure. The block deformation in the ground contact area is thereby reduced and the wear is low, which increases the mileage.

The new Altimax Sport guarantees precise steering response and safe driving on curvy and also on wet roads. Furthermore the modern silica tread compound bridges the gap between the target conflict wet performance and rolling resistance.
Precise steering response and safe driving on curvy roads. Outer shoulder blocks give the tyre lateral rigidity and optimum stability. The steering response is always precise – for safe driving even on winding roads.
Shorter braking distances on wet roads. Wide grooves running around the circumference and open shoulder blocks quickly displace water from the tyre contact area. This shortens the stopping distance.
Low fuel consumption and high mileage. In order to achieve both good performance in wet conditions and low rolling resistance, the innovative silica compound ensures minimal deformation and optimum hysteresis. This decreases fuel consumption and increases mileage.
VAI - Visual Alignment Indicator signals incorrect alignment. Over the first 1,000 kilometres, Visual Alignment Indicator technology (VAI) signals to the driver if the tread is not wearing evenly due to incorrect alignment. This significantly increases the service life of the tyre.
