About the technology

Less noise, more peace

One of the most irritating aspects of driving a car is road noise. A quieter experience is now available with help from Continental. ContiSilent™ tyres offer you our innovative noise-reducing technology. Its main purpose is to provide you with more comfort, peace and quiet by reducing interior car noise on all road surfaces. Continental ContiSilent™ tyres are equipped with an inner tyre absorber, made from polyurethane foam, which is attached to the inner surface of the tread area. In winter, in summer and all year round, the foam stays intact, no matter the temperature. 

ContiSilent™ helps reduce interior vehicle noise by up to nine decibels (dB), depending on the type of vehicle, its speed and the road surface. This is true even when driving at high speeds; a time when interior noise can be the loudest. Many leading automotive brands have approached Continental to take advantage of this innovative solution to a common problem faced by drivers.

Currently, our ContiSilent™ tyres are only available for summer tyres, and can be fitted to all standard-size wheel rims. Performance is not affected, so there is no change in mileage, load/speed capability, braking, traction, fuel efficiency, fuel consumption or overall performance. Grip on the road is also not compromised, whether in wet or dry conditions. Fitting your car with ContiSilent™ tyres each year, when the seasons change, only improves your experience by making it less noisy. Check the EU Tyre Label for more information and to compare ContiSilent™ tyres with standard tyres.

At Continental, we recommend that you fit ContiSilent™ on each wheel of your car to ensure the best results and enjoy a quieter ride. 


Technical details
