The ContiSportContact 5 is the latest ultra high performance tyre from Continental. Developed and tested in conjunction with our OE partners the ContiSportContact 5 combines maximum safety and driving pleasure.

ContiSportContact 5 features a flexible ‘macro-block’ design which increases the contact area and interaction with the road surface. This results in superb grip and stability when cornering. ‘Black Chilli Technology’ combines the use of grip resins and high structured racing carbon black to achieve short braking distances and excellent stability.

A 0° hybrid cap ply achieves circumferential stiffness and radial flexibility, resulting in excellent steering precision and increased grip and stability when cornering

  • Overall rating:
  • Larger contact area, thanks to Macro-block design, of outside shoulder that can adapt to the road surface - provides improved grip and cornering.
  • Black Chili technology leads to shorter braking distances in both wet and dry conditions. Short-chain polymers in the compound react when braking to provide optimum energy absorption from which the heat reduces braking distances.
  • Reduced rolling resistance leads to improved mileage and lower fuel consumption.
  • Improved tyre performance in key areas over Conti SportContact 3 – wet & dry braking, handling, wear and rolling resistance.
