Continental ContiSportContact 5 SUV
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Summer weather traction
- Enhanced controllability
- Fuel efficient performance
The Continental ContiSportContact 5 SUV is a summer high performance tire manufactured for SUVs.
The tire promotes great summer weather traction. The special Black Chilli tire compound and the asymmetric tread design work together to boost the dry and wet weather road gripping ability. The compound keeps its flexibility in the heat of summer and it effectively resists the heat build-up on the tire’s surface. The tread design’s siping detail and block placement maintains a firm grip on the road surface. The tread’s circumferential grooves prevent hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from below the tire’s footprint. The better traction and hydroplaning resistance enhance the tire’s summer weather performance.
The model’s tread design improves its controllability. The asymmetric tread design’s solid center rib and wide shoulder tread blocks keep the road contact at all times, which significantly boosts the steering responsiveness and driving stability. The steering is faster and more precise and the structure is stabilized as a result. The wider shoulder blocks increase the number of biting edges gripping the road surface during cornering. In this manner, the tire upgrades its cornering and maneuvering capability even at high speeds. The Black Chilli compound’s polymers create friction at the moment of braking, which heightens the braking capability. This shortens the braking distance and provides a safer driving experience.
The ContiSportContact 5 SUV combines its tread design and Black Chilli compound to ease the driving pressure off the tire and lower its rolling resistance. The external driving pressure, which affects the tires during the drive, determines the amount of energy the vehicle uses to keep the tires in motion. The reduced rolling resistance ensures a fuel efficient and environmentally friendly performance by decreasing the vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. It also slows the tread wear rate down and lengthens the tread life and the tire’s usability.
