ContiRe.Tex completely replaces conventional polyester normally used in the construction of tire carcasses and is as durable as conventionally-made tires. The textile cords embedded in the tires are designed to absorb the forces of internal pressure and remain dimensionally stable even under heavy loads and at high temperatures.
ContiRe.Tex has successfully proven its performance with the Continental CrossContact Extreme E racing tire under extreme conditions in the second season of Extreme E Racing. The season kicked off in February 2022, and will continue throughout the year. Moreover, the support vehicles for this year’s Tour de France will, for the first time, be equipped with tires including ContiRe.Tex technology. ContiRe.Tex tires can be distinguished from tires without ContiRe.Tex through a special logo printed on the sidewall that states: “Contains Recycled Material.”
