Continental VanContact Winter Tires
The Continental VanContact Winter is a highway terrain, winter tire made for commercial vans. The optimal tread design’s flat footprint and directional tread design enhances the surface contact. In this manner, the tire upgrades the steering responsiveness and the driving stability, ensuring the driver’s full control over the vehicle.
The directional tread design’s high-density siping placement manages to boost the number of biting edges gripping the road surface. In this manner, the tire boosts its overall braking power as the biting edges create friction between the tire and the road surface. This allows the tire to shorten the braking distance when braking on ice- and snow-covered road surfaces.
The Continental VanContact Winter enhances the winter weather traction. The detailed, high siping density directional tread pattern and the silica-based winter compound boost the cold temperature, ice and snow traction. On the other hand, the circumferential grooves prevent hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from below the footprint. The better winter traction also eases the driving pressure off the tire. This allows the tire to optimize the rolling resistance during its performance. Minimizing the rolling resistance manages to lower the vehicle’s fuel intake and CO2 emission levels. As a result, the tire guarantees a fuel efficient performing capability.
- Fuel efficiencyThe lowered rolling resistance reduces the rolling resistance throughout the drive, minimizing the fuel efficiency.
- SeasonThe silica compound and the directional tread pattern boost the winter weather, ice and snow traction and prevent hydroplaning.
- ControllabilityThe constant surface contact and the detailed pattern improve the tire’s handling and shortens the braking distance.
