Technical Details

Exceptional braking power in ice and snow.

High block stiffness in the tread pattern centre and the large number of sipes with maximum formation of gripping edges provide improved braking power on wet and icy roads.

Better traction in snow.

The large number of blocks and sipes on the tyre shoulders create a multitude of gripping edges and consequently more effective traction in snow.

Higher mileage.

Due to an even distribution of block stiffness and the corresponding even pressure distribution in the ground contact patch, the tyre has a lower and more even wear resulting in higher mileage performance.





Technologies

ContiSeal™ is a technology developed by Continental designed to seal a damaged tyre tread. In case of penetration by foreign objects such as nails, there is no need for immediate roadside tyre changes, and holes remain sealed even if the puncturing object becomes dislodged. ContiSeal™ is a sticky, viscous sealant layer. It is applied to the inside of the tyre in the tread area. ContiSeal™ seals 80% of all tyre punctures and therefore reduces the risk of flat tyres. ContiSeal™ tyres are marked clearly with a symbol on the sidewall and are compatible with all commonly available rims.

Tire with ContiSeal technology

The SSR system is a runflat technology developed by Continental especially for low section tyres, which still keeps the tyres compatible with all standard rims. The SSR principle is based on a self-supporting reinforced sidewall. In case of a puncture, this prevents the sidewall from being crushed between the rim and the road, and the tyre from slipping off the rim, which makes a spare tyre obsolete. Not having to carry a spare tyre means a reduction in weight, which improves fuel efficiency. It also adds up to 80 litres of free space in the boot. Fitting on four positions is highly recommended, if not yet mandatory by law and a tyre repair is not allowed.
