Unlimited driving fun thanks to excellent grip.
Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions.
The ContiSportContact 5 it is a summer tire suitable for sporty cars and SUVs with sporty driving characteristics, the ContiSportContact 5 is designed to combine short braking distances and good cornering traction with reduced fuel consumption and good tread wear.
Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions
When braking, the tire has a high natural frequency within the compound. Short-chain polymers in the Black Chilli compound of the ContiSportContact 5 react to this braking frequency and thus provide 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 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. Thus, the tire runs more easily and remains cool – for a higher mileage and a reduced fuel consumption.
The ContiSportContact 5 uses the Black Chilli compound molded into an asymmetric tread design that features a macro-block outboard shoulder that adapts to the road surface to improve road grip and cornering stability. Four circumferential grooves channel water to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction.
The short-chain polymers of the Black Chilli compound react to braking forces by building heat to shorten braking distance on wet and dry roads, while the compound s long-chain polymers release the absorbed energy more efficiently at constant speeds to reduced rolling resistance. Thus, the tire stops faster and remains cooler for longer life and reduced fuel consumption.
Rim Protection FR = Tires with rim protection.
