Continental ContiWinterContact TS780 is a premium winter tyre designed for everyday driving. This model has a directional tread, which efficiently evacuates water, mud and snow, minimising the risk of aquaplaning and ensuring excellent grip regardless of weather conditions.
The flexible rubber compound increases the contact surface of the tyre with ground, ensuring more a stable and safer driving experience. This model has a special system of incisions, resembling honeycomb, which ensures optimum performance on wet roads. The sharp edges of the incisions bite" into the snow, reducing braking distance. The stiffer tread helps to achieve a more comfortable and stable travel, especially on bends and during dynamic manoeuvres. The central rib, made of strong blocks, improves performance on dry roads, whereas powerful side blocks stabilise traction and improve driving precision. Continental ContiWinterContact TS780 also provides acoustic comfort for the driver and passengers. It has been achieved through specially shaped lateral grooves that reduce noise level and vibration generated during tyre operation. This makes even everyday driving a real pleasure. This tyre model is the perfect solution for demanding drivers who appreciate maximum performance, excellent handling on all types of surfaces and driving comfort.
