ContiExtremeContact is an Ultra High Performance All-Season radial
that was developed to satisfy the year-round driving needs of sports
car, coupe, sedan & light truck drivers by blending dry & wet
road performance with light snow & slush traction.
The ContiExtremeContact's silica-based, high-grip, all-season tread
compound is molded into an independent tread block design that
features Continental's "Tri-Net" & "Shark Fin Bio-Mechanics"
technologies. Tri-Net's three networks result in a tread design that
combines a strong network for dry road handling stability, a
flexible network for wet grip, & a cold temp network for snow
grip. The "Shark Fin Bio-Mechanics" directional tread design is
inspired by the rounded edges of a shark's fin that allows for the
smooth fluid flow that helps it glide smoothly through water with
minimum friction. Internally, the ContiExtremeContact's twin steel
belts are reinforced with spirally wound jointless nylon cap plies
to provide long term integrity under high speed conditions while it
reduces weight & helps provide more uniform ride quality.
Continental ContiExtremeContact radials feature subtle black letter
styling & are available in selected 65-, 60-, 55-, 50-, 45-, 40-
& 35-series. They are V- & W-speed rated sizes for 15" to 20"
