Germany's most experienced winter expert.
Maximum safety in any wintry weather condition for compact and mid-size vehicles.
An ace in all aspects.
Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety
Cool Chili™ ensures maximum braking performance in any wintry weather condition
Fits perfectly for example to Audi A4, BMW series 3 or Mercedes Benz C-Class
Cool Chili™ ensures maximum braking performance in any wintry weather condition.
The Maximum Traction Silica Compound ensures excellent wet grip and therefore improves braking performance significantly. Additionally the WinterContact™ TS 860 stays flexible at any winter weather and transfers the braking forces safely onto wet, icy and snow-covered roads.
Liquid Layer Drainage™ reduces the braking distance on frost-covered and icy roads.
This new sipe channel system helps to constantly dewater the tyres' contact surface for an improved braking performance on icy and frost-covered roads. This special drainage eliminates the danger of deteriorated braking performance caused by melting water, which supports faster braking.
Snow Curve+ technology for safe cornering on snow-covered roads.
The new WinterContact™ TS 860 strenghtens the interlocking of the tyre with snow-covered roads via the new Snow Curve+ technology. By compressing the snow at more than 1000 spots all over the profile, it provides a better overall grip, especially while cornering.
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G, wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
