Sport Contact 5
The ContiPremiumContact5 is the new allround premium tyre for vehicles in the compact, mid-size and full-size category. The allrounder boasts extremely short braking distances on dry and wet roads, low rolling resistance, safe driving properties and comfortable handling characteristics.
The optimised 3D edges allow for shorter braking distances on wet roads. Adapted from the ContiSportContact5, the macro-blocks guarantee safe handling and better transmission of cornering forces. A new carcass – adapted this time from the ContiEcoContact 5 – enhances comfort and reduces the ContiPremiumContact 5's rolling resistance.
The ContiSportContact 5 is designed to meet the demands of the most powerful, latest technology vehicles. This tyre tread is designed to be best on dry pavement and is not made to be driven in freezing temperatures or in snow or ice. Whether you drive a sport car, a sport truck, or a performance sedan, this ultra high performance tyre incorporates responsive handlingand grip for outstanding control at the limit.
Black Chilli Technology - specially developed compound technology involving an innovative type of racing grade carbon black, which ensures a speedy warm-up process and greater stability. The polymers in the compound are reinforced with nano particles, making them extremely supple. Thus they provide more contact points with the road, so grip is substantially enhanced and the tyre far more stable. In addition, special grip resins provide optimum interlocking with both wet and dry roads, thus achieving shorter braking distances.
- Asymmetrical tread pattern - provides an improved contact patch when making sharp maneuvers, grip for faster cornering and additional steering response
- Flexible "macro-block" design - provides increased contact surface during high speed cornering, enhancing the "on the limit" response
- 45-degree tread blocks and 3D grooves - reduce tilting creating a larger effective contact area for shorter braking distances
- Circumferential grooves - channel water to fight hydroplaning and create confidence on wet roads
