Superb braking and agile handling for seriously high-performance cars: The ContiSportContactTM 3

One of the most crucial requirements of tires fitted on high-performance sports cars is agile steering precision. This ensures your vehicle maintains good adherence to the road in face of the considerable forces acting on the tires when driving at high speeds, making abrupt manoeuvres or changes in road surfaces. The asymmetric tread ribs on the ContiSportContactTM 3 are designed to absorb these forces.

On dry roads, the new tread pattern ribs provide outstanding braking capability and steering precision, by absorbing the forces exerted on braking. This means a reduction in stopping distances.

On wet surfaces, the unique grooves allow increased clearance of water for better resistance to aquaplaning.

Technical details

New: The asymmetrical pattern ribs.

New: The asymmetrical pattern ribs.

The ribs in the tread pattern help to provide shorter braking distances.
Longitudinal forces come into effect when braking. These forces are retained by the continuous pattern ribs due to their high longitudinal stiffness. The overall result is improved braking performance.

How asymmetry secures improved steering precision.

During swift and abrupt steering manoeuvres, high lateral forces act on the tread pattern ribs from the outside. The angled sides stabilise the ribs and reduce their deformation under such forces, which results in an increase in steering precision.
