The new aluminium studs ensure a good grip on icy roads. As a result, traction on ice is exceptionally good. This excellent grip greatly improves braking safety.
Excellent snow performance.
Sipes in the middle of the tyre open up and take in snow. The combination of these sipes and lots of gripping edges achieves outstanding traction on snow.
Improved dry performance.
The large and stable block increases lateral stiffness and force transmission. This leads to enhanced cornering stability and dry handling performance.
EU Tyre Label
EU Tyre Label
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to class E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing for each subsequent class through to E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tire, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A to C.
Additional pictograms for snow and icy conditions
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tires only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
