The Continental ContiEcoContact 5 is a touring summer tire manufactured for passenger vehicles.
The model offers great summer weather traction. The summer weather compound and the symmetric tread design combined guarantee a secure dry and wet weather road gripping ability. The compound actively resists heat build-up and hot weather damage, while also maintaining its flexible traction in summer weather. The tread design’s siping pattern firmly grips the road surface in such weather situations. The wide circumferential grooves help resist hydroplaning by dispersing water and slush from below the tire’s footprint. The increased traction and hydroplaning prevention ensure a safer driving experience in summer weather, but the tire is not suited for winter weather use.
The tire’s tread design boosts its summer weather controllability. The three continuous center ribs keep the tire’s road contact to improve the driver’s control over the vehicle. They boost the steering responsiveness and the driving stability. The steering becomes faster and more precise in its response to the driver’s commands, while the structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting the model. The siping detail and the stronger compound work together to create friction between the tire and the road at the moment of braking. This significantly shortens the braking distance and upgrade the control the driver has over the vehicle.
The model guarantees excellent driving comfort. The tread design closely follows the road surface. This optimal road contact absorbs the shock of driving, which significantly lowers the road vibration levels felt in the vehicle’s cabin. The tread design also lowers the road noise levels heard while the tires are in motion. The closed shoulder design prevents airwaves from entering the footprint and coming into contact with the tread elements. This avoids road and tread pattern noise formations during the drive and ensues an excellent driving enjoyment.
The ContiEcoContact 5 provides a fuel efficient performance. The tread design and the optimal tire compound work together to decrease the tire’s rolling resistance. They increase the model’s traction and ease the driving pressure off the tire. As a result, the lowered rolling resistance greatly reduces the vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This guarantees a fuel conscious and environmentally friendly driving experience.
