ContiSportContactTM 5 SUV
Unlimited driving fun combined with exceptional grip for cars and SUVs.
With the launch of the ContiSportContact 5 SUV, Continental has developed a tire which is suitable for sporting SUVs. With this new development, the tire engineers have made significant progress in comparison to its popular predecessor:
- Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions.
- Excellent road grip and safety when cornering.
- Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage.
This was made possible due to a new compound which focuses on maximum power transmission and provides low rolling resistance whilst driving normally. This rubber compound which we call "BlackChilli", makes use of the various vibrations of the tire.
The ContiSportContact 5 SUV is available in a range of sizes from 17 inch upwards for cars and 18 inch upwards for SUV.
V - Y
17 - 20
205 - 275
55 - 35
Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions.
When braking, the tire has a high natural frequency within the compound. Short-chain polymers in the unique Black Chilli compound of the ContiSportContact™ 5 SUV, reacts to this braking frequency and so provides optimal energy absorption. The resulting heat shortens the braking distance on wet and dry roads.
Excellent road grip and safety when cornering.
The macro-block design of the tire’s outside shoulder provides a larger contact area, which can therefore adapt optimally to the road surface. The ContiSportContact™ 5 SUV offers improved road grip and thus more safety when cornering.
Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage.
At a constant speed, the vibrations in the compound are significantly lower. The longchain polymers within the compound can release the absorbed energy better, resulting in considerably reduced rolling resistance. This means the tire rolls more easily and remains cool – for a higher mileage and a reduced fuel consumption.
