Precise steering response and high mileage performance.
ContiSportContact™ 2 has a strikingly clear tread design allowing no compromises. The asymmetrical pattern guarantees maximum ground adhesion in any driving situation. This is ensured by the closed outer shoulder section and the pronounced strips of tread rubber around the tire's circumference. Another benefit of this tread design is that it delivers extremely precise steering response, both on bends taken at high speeds and when driving on the straight.
The circumferential tread strips are much stiffer than individual tread blocks. So Conti's tire engineers were able to use a softer tread compound. By combining the solid tread strips with the soft compound, tire mileage performance could be enhanced to a high level.
