Tyre details:The Continental ContiSportContact 5P is a premium-range summer tyre designed for everyday use. The model offers sporty features and excellent steering precision, whatever the weather. Solid central ribbing provides excellent structural rigidity and, combined with tread blocks and additional asymmetric pattern ribs, ensures stability and safety on the road.
This model adapts to surface conditions thanks to a flexible block located on the outer tyre shoulder. The area of contact between the Continental ContiSportContact 5P and the road has also been increased using a flexible rubber compound to ensure outstanding road adherence. The model uses Black Chilli technology, shortening the tyre warm-up time and improving driving precision. The addition of a special resin means that the tyre bites into wet and dry surfaces, reducing braking distances. Two tread components, the "cap” and the "base”, ensure optimal performance: the "cap” provides good grip on wet roads and shorter braking distances, while the "base” ensures reduced rolling resistance, whatever the weather. The engineers behind the Continental ContiSportContact 5P also focused on optimising the distribution of pressure acting on the tyre, which means that the tread wears slowly and evenly. Drivers can therefore take advantage of all of its features for its entire lifetime, without having to worry about a gradual reduction in performance and driving comfort. This model is suited to drivers looking for summer tyres that offer a balanced performance on any type of surface, as well as durability and reliability.
