The Continental ContiSportContact 5 is a ultra high performance tyre developed and tested with OE car partners. The ContiSportContact 5 has been designed to deliver maximum safety mixed with driving pleasure.

Continental have constructed the ContiSportContact 5 with a supple ‘macro-block’ design - this works to increases the total contact area between the tyre and road surface for added grip when cornering. This results in superb grip and stability when cornering.


Their use of ‘Black Chilli Technology’ - which is the combination of grip enhancing resins with highly structured carbon black - also aids in delivering short braking distances.

Excellent stability throughout the life of the tyre is achieved with a 0° hybrid cap ply which also helps achieve precise steering, thanks to the tyre's circumferential stiffness and radial flexibility.


Customer Comments

  • The tyres are working just fine.

  • Very good ...great tyre for the wet weather
