The micro flexibility compound ensures optimum contact between tyre and road

A new Micro Flexibility Compound ensures that there is optimum interlocking between tyre and road surface. This guarantees better acceleration and shorter braking distances in both wet and dry conditions. This innovative compound teamed with the outstanding Continental Black Chili tread design contributes to the outstanding braking capabilities of the SportContact 6.
