For sports cars and SUVs
As Michelin unveils its Alpin 5, Continental is aligning its new WinterContact TS 850 P and its WinterContact TS 850 P SUV version. If the nomenclature is complicated, the objective is much simpler: propose the best possible winter tyres for all cars belonging to the sports car and SUV category. These new tyres, that claim to deliver slightly better performance in all areas, will supersede the previous ContiWinterContact TS 830 P and ContiCrossContact Winter models.
Improved handling and braking
With higher angles and a closer spacing between sipes, this new tyre is said to offer a 5% improvement in handling on snow, compared to its predecessor. And even on dry roads, notable progress has been made, with a 2% improvement in handling through the increased stiffness and better control of tread block movements. But improvements don’t stop there. Continental also announce a 5% improvement in braking, counting on a unique tread design that prevents tread blocks from tipping when braking hard. Braking performance is better, whether on wet or dry roads.
