Continuing with the introduction of the Generation 7 products introduced in Malaysia, Continental Tyres has added its flagship Ultra High Performance (UUHP) tyre, the SportContact 7, to its range for the market.
The latest SportContact 7 features a series of latest technology such as upgraded adaptive pattern that reacts to different driving behaviours by providing additional grip on the asphalt. In addition, the latest development also includes Force Clustering that provides the same SportContact handling and tailor-made performance for every vehicle class and the exclusive BlackChili technology has been further harmonized with the tyre pattern concept.
“For the past several years, we have been listening to customers feedback and observing various performance driving patterns of road users across the globe, including Malaysia. To meet the evolving driving patterns and customer needs, we have exclusively developed the Sport Contact 7 with stickier compounds that ensure a better grip for an enthusiastic driving experience with zero compromise on safety and comfort on the road,” said Andrea Somorova, Managing Director of Continental Tyre Malaysia.
With the latest adaptive pattern technology, the SportContact 7 is said to provide outstanding grip in wet conditions during braking or accelerating and avoid micro aquaplaning during cornering. The adaptive pattern limits tread movement, ensuring stable handling characteristics in the outer shoulder.
As heavier vehicles in the UUHP environment need different performance requirements than light vehicles, the SportContact 7 is the first Continental tyre that is tailor-made for every vehicle class and weight. The end goal is to provide the sportive feel and performance and the experience of driving pleasure, regardless the vehicle model.
The latest generation of resins, combined with BlackChili compound, has been refined with a new plasticizer to create an ultra-sticky compound. This is used together with an innovative low void profile design for enhanced tyre performance.
The new SportContact 7 is offered for rim sizes from 18 inches to 23 ínches.
