For your safety, we have gone into every detail
New winter tyres for compact and mid-size cars. The new ContiWinterContact TS 850 will hit the road with a multitude of innovative technical features. It offers even better grip than its predecessor on typical wintry roads, as well as shorter braking distances in the wet, enhanced handling, extended mileage and a further reduction in rolling resistance. To make the tyre safer, more cost-efficient and eco-friendlier, Continental engineers making sure all of the winter tyre’s structural parts are truly state-of-the-art.
- Improved braking performance on snow, ice and wet roads
- Excellent driving stability in all winter conditions
- More economical thanks to reduced rolling resistance and increased running performance
For compact and medium range vehicles. The perfect tyre for cold and wet weather conditions. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Improved braking performance on snow, ice and wet roads. Multiple testwinner in independent magazine tests, e.g. Auto Motor Sport (issue 20/2013, 225/50 R17) or ADAC 'good' (Issue 10/2013, 225/45 R 17)
Optimal braking and steering in winter conditions. A high number of block edges and sipes increase traction and braking performance on snow and ice. At the same time, more edges are available to transfer lateral forces when negotiating bends or changing lanes at high speed. This ensures perfect handling and outstanding grip even in extreme driving situation.
Short stopping distances on ice. Thanks to a high degree of lamination, additional sipe edges break through the thin water film that forms on the ice in a similar way to a windscreen wiper. This results in outstanding braking performance, helping you to come to a stop faster.
Comfortable ride and improved rolling resistance. By using a harder apex and additional bead reinforcement, lateral forces can be better transferred when steering. Thanks to the more flexible sidewall area, less energy is lost when deflecting or rebounding. This results in a noticeably more comfortable drive, perfect handling and less rolling resistance.
