Continental ContiVanContact 100
Safety. And even more efficiency.
The ContiVanContact™ 100 - Efficiency and safety for daily use. The ContiVanContact 100 is an all-round talent that can not only easily cope with poor road surfaces and heavy loads, but which also offers a high mileage. Its specially reinforced carcass and sturdy sidewall, the stone-deflecting tread design, and the strong scuff protection strip on the sidewall make the tire a particularly robust load carrier. We have managed to reduce rolling resistance by 10% in comparison to the successful predecessor model – offering yet another advantage to transport companies who run Sprinters and similar vans and for whom speed and timeliness are the key in the distribution business. Continental has 14 sizes available with diameters ranging from 14 to 16 inches and load-bearing capacities up to a load index of 115 (1,215 kg per tire).
For transporters and vans. Efficiency and safety for daily use. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. High level of efficiency thanks to higher mileage. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including for example the vehicle models Fiat Ducato, Iveco Daily and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
- High level of efficiency thanks to higher mileage
- Improved durability on all roads and thus longer service life
- High safety reserves for heavy loads
High level of efficiency thanks to higher mileage.
The partly silica compound used is particularly long-lasting. The flat contour of the tyre ensures a larger contact area with the ground, producing a higher wear volume. This results in greater efficiency due to the higher mileage capability of the tyre.
Improved durability on all roads and thus longer service life.
A durable tread pattern design and stone ejectors in the bottom of the groove prevent stones from becoming stuck in the grooves. The tyre is thus better protected against chipping and other damage. The robust 3D scuff rib on the sidewall protects against curb abrasion and increases the durability of the tyre.
High safety reserves for heavy loads.
The tyre is characterised by a robust carcass construction and reinforced sidewalls. It thus offers a particularly high load-carrying capability with a high level of driving stability.
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
