Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Short braking distances and high cornering stability. Test winner by 'Gute Fahrt' in their summer tyre test 2014 for the size 235/55 R 17 V. The bionic contour of the tire narrows the tire when moving and widens it when braking.
This reduces the braking distance and ensures higher cornering stability. The tire's asymmetrical profile and outer rigidity guarantees exceptional cornering and a fun drive without compromising on safety. The four or five (depending on tire width) circumferential drainage grooves provide excellent protection against aquaplaning.
Short braking distances and high cornering stability. The tire’s bionic contour creates a disproportionately wider ground contact patch in the case of increased dynamic load, resulting in short braking distances and greater cornering stability.
Safety reserves for outstanding handling and fun at the wheel. Sturdy shoulder lugs on the outer side of the tire, linked to the ribbed tread pattern structure, mean steering precision and cornering stability, as well as optimum traction and braking characteristics. These large lugs linked to the circumferential rib give the tire a good foothold, thereby improving traction and braking, with optimum steering precision and straight running.
Low rolling resistance and excellent grip. The state-of-the-art high-performance car tire tread compound with silica technology ensures outstanding interlocking with the road, resulting in excellent grip and low rolling resistance.
With excellent motorway speed stability and precise handling on wet or dry roads, Proxes T1 Sport SUV answers the need for an Ultra High Performance tire for these executive cars.
Increased contact area through use of wide ribs with shallow and narrow groove to maintain good tread contact with the road.
Improved handling and high grip.
Two wide grooves ensure good water drainage.
Better braking achieved via a rib based pattern configuration, which increases the tread’s rigidity in the back and forward directions.
Increased contact area through the use of wide blocks with shallow and narrow grooves to maintains good tread contact with the road. Improved handling with responsive steering feel and high grip.
High-speed stability + handling response are improved by adoption of a wide center rib.
*285 section width and larger
The inside ribs have a solid shape, which enhances rigidity, improves braking performance and reduces irregular wear.
Wide straight grooves provide a wide water channel for better aquaplaning resistance.
The solid,sturdy central ribs,attached tread lugs,plus asymmetrical tread ribs ensure optimum,longitudinal stiffness in the tyre and reduced movement in the tread. This means steering forces are transmitted straight to the road.
A supple macro-block design on the outer shoulder and solid central ribs ensure that the tyre adapts perfectly to the road surface. Particularly during fast cornering the contact patch is increased. The driver receives excellent feedback when approaching the limit and the tyre provides outstanding grip with maximum stability.
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.
SCORPION™ WINTER has been designed to fit modern SUVs and CUVs, with a special focus on the high-end segment.
The goal is no fear in down-hill braking and cornering in winter road conditions, whilst maintaining total control.
