    Continental UltraContact: new range of summer tires

    Sustainability also passes through resistant tires, designed to last and to withstand stresses destined to increase with the spread of electric cars. The new Continental UltraContact summer tire was developed with this approach, ensuring the usual safety standards. It is a totally new product designed to combine high mileage, maximum strength and low rolling resistance. To achieve these objectives, a new compound with high strength characteristics called YellowChili has been developed which contains a special structure of synthetic polymers with a flexible matrix which, thanks to a very strong connection, allows less abrasion. Its formulation allows optimal adherence to the irregularities of the road surface, necessary to guarantee steering precision, grip in longitudinal acceleration and short braking distances. The newly designed tread pattern is also designed to maximize tire life. The combination of a high number of sipes with robust ribs ensure rigidity, stability and uniform pressure over the entire contact surface. With the aim of maximizing mileage, Continental engineers have also developed a new, particularly robust casing model. Many of the sizes of the new UltraContact feature the rubber edge to protect the rim, which helps protect the lower sidewall area. Braking distances, even in wet conditions, are among the most important characteristics for tires. The new UltraContact is equipped with a large number of oblique sipes with a chamfered profile which guarantee a drainage of water from the contact surface towards the tread grooves and then towards the shoulders. The innovative angle of these sipes (called “bevel-sipe”) accelerates the removal of water, optimizing braking distances in the wet. To minimize rolling noise, small raised elements have been inserted into the tread grooves that have the task of “breaking” the sound wave. As breakwaters, they reduce the emission of noise without hindering the expulsion of water.
    The sidewall, also newly developed, shows for the first time the new four-zone layout, characteristic of future generations of Continental tires.
