Safe in any extreme.
The new IceContact 2 has 50% more studs, newly designed and optimally distributed. Because of the studs arrangement, they always roll on unused ice, insuring improved grip on ice.
Through a new technology, Continental¹s new IceContact™ 2 ensures maximum grip, and, therefore increased safety and driving comfort.
The IceContact™ 2 keeps a firm contact with the ice during braking. Therefore, the tire boasts shorter braking distances on ice and improved ice traction and handling.
The tire¹s design features inside and outside blocks. The inside blocks increase snow friction, while the outside blocks increase lateral stiffness. In the end, this helps enhance snow and handling 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.
