Thanks to the open outer shoulder, this tire provides good handling and braking properties even on easy terrain. The four deep and broad circumferential grooves widen towards the opening, ensuring very good aquaplaning resistance and reducing tire damage by hindering stones from getting caught. Thanks to their rib characteristic and pronounced siping, the three circumferential block rows make for precise steering response and very good straightline performance while guaranteeing that the tire rolls very smoothly and quietly.

High performance tyre for road and easy terrain. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Outstanding handling for on-road and general off-road use. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including for example the models Land Rover Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz ML-Class and Nissan X-Trail.
The tires of the ContiCrossContact LX Sport product line guarantee optimum handing and braking performance both on the road as well as on easily navigable terrain. This is achieved with stiff rows of tread blocks in the center of the tread pattern which enable very good transmission of power between the tire and the ground surface.
Also worthy of particular mention is the excellent braking performance on wet roads which is made possible to a high number of tread blocks on the shoulder and a balanced sipe density. Finally, the flat design of the tire contour makes for a uniform wear pattern and optimized rolling resistance.
Outstanding handling for on-road and general off-road use.
The stiff intermediate block rows greatly improve dry handling and enhance the force transmission from tyre to road.
Excellent braking performance on dry and wet roads.
For shorter braking distances in wet conditions as well as improved on- and off-road traction, the traction edges of blocks and sipes are increased.
Optimised rolling resistance.
The flat tyre contour is optimised for an even wear shape.
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.
