The new Continental PremiumContact 7 tyre offers significant improvements in wet and dry conditions compared to the previous generation. There are three innovative technologies on this tire that have made it possible to improve rolling resistance and mileage.
With the new Premium Contact 7, Continental aims to give continuity to the many successes achieved by its predecessor PremiumContact 6 which won 34 tests from leading international trade magazines, including AUTO BILD and ADAC.
Autonomy and safety, but also high grip with consequent reduction of braking distances, a huge advantage, especially for electric traction vehicles, all this is possible thanks to the innovative RedChili compound which optimizes performance in a range of temperatures very broad.
The adaptive tread design of the PremiumContact 7 ensures greater stability and driving comfort on dry and wet roads: in a straight line, the tread optimally expels water out of the transverse grooves. On the other hand, when cornering, the footprint moves so that a part of the tread maintains contact with the road, guaranteeing greater grip. A comparison with the sixth generation shows that in the wet, handling is improved by 5%, braking by 7% and aquaplaning by 2%, while in the dry, handling and braking both improve by 3 percentage points.
Denise Sperl, Director Research & Development Car Tires EMEA at Continental Tyres he has declared: “For Continental, safety is the top priority. PremiumContact 7 ensures peace of mind on the road for our customers, their families and all road users”.
