When braking, the tyre has a high natural frequency within the compound. Short-chain polymers in the Black Chilli compound of the Conti Sport Contact™ 5 react to this braking frequency and thus provide optimal energy absorption. The resulting heat shortens the braking distance on wet and dry roads.
The Macro-block design of the tire's outside shoulder provides a larger contact area, which can therefore adapt optimally to the road surface. The Conti Sport Contact™ 5 offers improved road grip and thus more safety when cornering.
At a constant speed, the vibrations in the compound are significantly lower. The longchain polymers within the compound can release the absorbed energy better, resulting in considerably reduced rolling resistance. Thus, the tire runs more easily and remains cool - for a higher mileage and a reduced fuel consumption.
