Continental ContiWinterContact TS790 is a premium winter tyre. This model is made of the latest silicone compound that ensures tyre flexibility even in very cold winter temperatures. This material guarantees also long mileage. The product has an original, asymmetric tread, which ensures its versatile performance. It enables the tyre to adapt its properties to the conditions of the road. The tread blocks on one side of the tyre are arranged directionally. This solution provides excellent performance on wet surfaces. Therefore, the tyre offers high resistance to aquaplaning. In addition to the specific tread blocks on the surface of the tyre, the model also has wide perimeter channels and differently shaped lateral grooves. They are one of the most important elements of the tyre, as they provide fast and efficient evacuation of water and slush. Without this, driving in typical winter conditions would not be so safe and comfortable. Moreover, these grooves have profiled walls, which prevent water turbulence.
Continental ContiWinterContact TS790 also offers decent performance on slippery ice-covered surfaces. Special incisions of different shapes, arranged across the entire surface of the tyre perfectly cooperate with each other and make the tyre 'grip' the ground, guaranteeing very good traction. In addition, the sharp edges of the tread make the tyre perform excellently during acceleration and starting, and ensure short braking distances. The tyre also operates quite well on the bends. Additionally, the manufacturer took care of proper manoeuvrability and good traction. For this purpose, the tyre is fitted with a massive rib. Caution! The Continental ContiWinterContact TS790 should not be used on the same axle as the Continental ContiWinterContact TS 790 V.
