German engineered safety to master the Nordic winter.
No need to slide around when the roads are snowy and icy. This new Nordic Compound gives you excellent grip with outstanding performance in the snow and ice.
Here’s a tire providing more tracking stability than ever: the powerful pattern design with outstanding drainage capabilities even makes you master slush-planing and improves steering precision in extreme situations at the same time.
Winter can be very rude in some regions. That’s why we built a tire that keeps you in full control, even under harsh conditions – our 3D Trapez Sipes, with different thickness and effective snow edges, guarantees impressive traction and braking performance.
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to class E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing for each subsequent class through to E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tire, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A to C.
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 tires only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
