ERJ staff report (DS)
Hannover, Germany -- Continental has officially launched the ContiEcoContact 5 tyre, first announced last March at the Geneva Motor show. The comapny said the new tyre sets new standards in terms of the environment and safety.
Conti said, "A specially developed compound and optimised tread grooves have lead to an improvement in grip in the wet. Continental's tyre designers have combined this with functionalised polymer chains forming a stronger bond with the silica which gives lower rolling resistance. Extra thin sipes reduce tread deformation minimising energy loss".
