Our ultimate grip technology has been put to the ultimate test. At the ContiGripRun 2017 event on Friday 22 September, history was truly made. We worked with adidas to to put our long-standing technology cooperation to the test.

Working with two pro athletes, we decided to aim for a world record attempt which involved the brave athletes running up the Heini-Klopfer-Ski jump. Struggling against a challenging 37 degree gradient, Johannes Rydzek broke the Guinness World Record with a time of 27.69 seconds to beat the record for fastest 50 metres on an inclined gradient.

Auto Express Award Winning Tyres

PremiumContact™ 6
Award Winning PremiumContact™ 6

Don’t just take our word for it, Auto Express say, “The PremiumContact™ 6 was the best tyre to drive in both wet and dry, there was a liveliness to its handling that no rival could match and few could get close to. In the wet, the PremiumContact™ 6 was in a league of its own, the sharpness was there on the wet track with a strong front end pulling you through turns - where rivals just pushed wide.

The tyres’ consistent performance across a range of testing led towards another fantastic win for Continental and the PremiumContact™ range.”

WinterContact™ TS 860
Award Winning WinterContact™ TS 860

On the winning performance of the Continental WinterContact™ TS 860, Auto Express said; “A third victory on the trot for the TS 860, which could almost be designed for British winters. Continental set the pace in the wet braking and handling, and felt sharp on the track, with impressive traction in corners. It’s rare that a tyre picks up a hat-trick of wins in our tests, but the Continental TS 860 has done exactly that, yet again putting together a series of top results in all weathers.”

AllSeasonContact™
Award Winning AllSeasonContact™

Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief of Auto Express, said: “Just a quick look at the results is enough to show which was the dominant tyre in this test. No matter what the surface, the AllSeasonContact™ was on the podium. Continental may have come late to the all-season party, but it has made a winning entrance. A great test debut that shows how an all-season tyre should perform.”
