ContiSportContact 5 SUV is Continental’s Street/Sport Truck Summer tyre initially developed to match the sporty driving characteristics of Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche crossover vehicles. ContiSportContact 5 SUV tyres are designed to offer short braking distances and good cornering traction in moderate to warm ambient temperatures. However, like all summer tyres, it is not intended to be driven in near freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice. It is developed to be equally suitable for sporty cars and SUVs with sporty driving characteristics. Key Features and Benefits: For high-performance and luxury vehicles. Excellent road grip and handling just as safety when cornering. Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions. Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage. Four circumferential grooves channel water to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction. A continuous centre rib and notched intermediate ribs promote steering response and straight-line tracking. Continental’s Black Chilli compound’s short-chain polymers react to braking forces by building heat to shorten braking distance on wet and dry roads. Compound’s long-chain polymers release the absorbed energy more efficiently at constant speeds to reduce rolling resistance. Thus, the tyre stops faster and remains cooler for longer life and reduced fuel consumption. The tyre’s internal structure features twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped polyamide that enhances the ride quality while tuning the contact area’s vertical flexibility and lateral rigidity.
