Quick Facts

Extreme challenges call for extreme durability.


Durability, high mileage, long service life – three features that now take you even further. All in all, this means increased resistance to the extreme demands made by construction sites, plus enhanced economy of your vehicles.


  • A 3 and 4-groove tread pattern for enhanced precision in both on- and off-road applications.

Technical details

Tread area

  • Means increased resistance to cuts, chipping and chunking
  • Reduces the number, and most importantly the depth of any cuts and tears
  • Improves protection of the casing by keeping damage superficial
  • Results in substantially higher removal mileage, thanks to its great durability

Belt layer

  • Withstands highly concentrated pressure
  • Prevents fatigue fractures
  • Means enhanced traction characteristics through the stiffness of the overall structure
  • Protects the casing effectively and offers best retreadability

Tread pattern

  • Results in considerably higher mileage with even wear
  • Ensures reliable grip and good handling both on and off the road
  • Improves the tyre’s selfcleaning characteristics and reduces stone-trapping (casing protection)
  • Combines high mileage with significant traction and optimum road suitability, whatever the weather conditions


Technical Details-pic3

Contour

  • Provides greater resistance to deformation caused by radial forces
  • Minimises compression of the sidewalls, even with heavier loads
  • Counteracts premature material fatigue
  • Means greater load-carrying capacity and improved retreadability

EU Tyre Label

1. Wet grip

The wet grip rating indicates how well the tyre will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.

2. Fuel efficiency

Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tyres deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing all the way down to class E.

3. Noise level

This is the external rolling noise generated by the tyre, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A down to C. 

Additional pictograms for snow and icy conditions

In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tyres only).


With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tyres.
