Big journeys don’t need to cost the earth: Thanks to the best balance between tyre size and component distribution, the EcoContact™ 6 and its high-tech silica compound improve rolling resistance, so that you reduce both fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions.
Wherever your journey may take you, the EcoContact™ 6 will perfectly adapt to the road conditions. The advanced Green Chili™ 2.0 compound reduces tyre wear, so you can go further.
There is wet performance, there is dry performance and then there is the EcoContact™ 6. With its tailor-made pattern, asymmetric rib and sipe geometry, the EcoContact™ 6 always keeps you in control whatever the conditions.
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.
ContiSilent™ is a tyre noise-reducing technology developed by Continental. It is designed to reduce interior noise on all road surfaces. ContiSilent™ tyres are equipped with an inner tyre absorber, a polyurethane foam, attached to the inner surface of the tread area with an adhesive. Regardless of the temperature, the structure of the foam stays intact. ContiSilent™ helps reduce interior vehicle noise up to 9 dB(A), depending on the type of vehicle, its speed and the road surface.
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.
