By making the most out of its elements, the ContiVikingContact 6™ offers enhanced performance on snow, ice and dry roads.
Thanks to its design, the new ContiVikingContact™ 6 comes with safer snow handling.
The middle area of the tyre interlocks safely with icy roads. When braking on ice, the thin layer of water which forms is wiped off, thus preventing the floating of the tyre.
While cornering on dry surfaces, the tyre offers high grip and increased lateral stiffness, therefore achieving maximum stability.
Secure grip in wet conditions is crucial for safe driving. Performance is graded into classes, A to G (although D and G are not currently used). The stopping distance between a class A tire and a class F tire can be as much as 18 metres.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with each subsequent class through to G increasing fuel consumption by between 0.42 and 0.56 mpg for a car which does 36 mpg.
This is the external noise made by the tire and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tires.
