In case of an increased load, the tire's contact with the ground widens, resulting in short braking distances and excellent cornering stability.
By linking together certain elements, the tire achieves steering precision and optimum traction for fun driving.
A special compound used within the tire ensures excellent grip and low rolling resistance.
ContiSeal is a technology developed by Continental designed to seal a damaged tire tread. In case of penetration by foreign objects such as nails, there is no need for immediate roadside tire changes, and holes remain sealed even if the puncturing object becomes dislodged. ContiSeal is a sticky, viscous sealant layer. It is applied to the inside of the tire in the tread area. ContiSeal seals 80% of all tire punctures and therefore reduces the risk of flat tires. ContiSeal tires are marked clearly with a symbol on the sidewall and are compatible with all commonly available rims.
The SSR system is a runflat technology developed by Continental especially for low section tires, which still keeps the tires compatible with all standard rims. The SSR principle is based on a self-supporting reinforced sidewall. In case of a puncture, this prevents the sidewall from being crushed between the rim and the road, and the tire from slipping off the rim, which makes a spare tire obsolete. Not having to carry a spare tire means a reduction in weight, which improves fuel efficiency. It also adds up to 80 litres of free space in the trunk. Fitting on four positions is highly recommended, if not yet mandatory by law and a tire repair is not allowed.
