In the June issue of the sports bike magazine PS, the ContiRaceAttack Comp. Endurance delivered an impressive performance. The professional riders gathered at the track, to test four fast hypersport motorcycle tyres with road approval. These tyres were put through their paces in a total of 15 tough disciplines on dry and wet road surfaces.
Continental is introducing two new tre technology concepts to make for even greater road safety and comfort in the future. The two systems enable continuous monitoring of the condition of the tyres, as well as situation-matched adaptation of tyre performance characteristics to the prevailing road conditions. Accompanied by a tyre study, the technologies, called ContiSense
An analysis of the penalty point notices issued for tyre-related offences since the May 2016 introduction of the current tyre safety regime, shows that there were just 231 motorists who were given penalty points for driving with a tyre that had less than the legal rubber tread depth limit of 1.6mm. In comparison, Continental’s own
Mud, sand, rock, unpaved roads, off-the-road tyres (OTR) for construction vehicles and machinery have to cope with difficult ground conditions. With this in mind, Continental has developed the ContiEarth range, a series of OTR tyres, each equipped with a special tread pattern tailored for the specific needs and requirements of loaders, dump trucks or bulldozers,
Whether extracting and hauling raw materials on gravelly, rocky or sandy terrain or transporting building materials on unpaved roads at the construction site: off-the-road tyres (OTR) mounted on a variety of construction vehicles and machinery have to cope with difficult ground conditions. Continental has therefore developed the ContiEarth range, a series of OTR tyres, each
In tough conditions such as those encountered on mining and construction sites, efficiency and safety are key. However, under inflated tyres are still a major cause of breakdowns and service calls, with on average, one third of fleet tyres under inflated. This not only has an effect on fuel consumption but also on the tyre
Transport to and on construction sites places heavy demands on machinery and tyres. Robustness and traction are the main characteristics crucial in construction tyre applications. However, traction-optimised tread designs with wide grooves lead to greater levels of wear at a faster pace as well as increased fuel consumption on paved roads. For this reason, Continental’s
This year Continental has expanded its range of summer car tyres even further, with the new portfolio now featuring over 200 new items. There are new sizes across sports cars to compact city cars. As a result, the German tyre manufacturer now offers one of the world’s most extensive ranges of tyres for cars, SUVs
