ContiTrack offers a sustainably higher level of performance with increased durability. The new carcass structure provides much greater stability when braking and ensures more precise steering as well as noticeably greater traction on corner exit. Thanks to the ZeroDegree steel belt construction, the tire guarantees great stability at high speeds and an extremely low kickback tendency.
"When developing ContiTrack, we focused in particular on producing three variants of carefully balanced compounds," explains Edwin Goudwaard, head of Research and Development. The innovative super sports tire is completely "handmade in Germany" and comes from the "tire bakery" in Korbach am Edersee.
Alternative tread designs to the "smooth" ContiTrack are listed in the new "Racing Tires ABC" by Continental. In addition to an overview of all sports and super sports tires suitable for the race track, including the available sizes, the ABC also provides useful tips on how to choose the right tires.
