Continental VanContact A/S Ultra is a premium all-season tyre designed for long-distance use. The impressive mileage is mainly due to the use of a modern rubber compound using active polymers, which results in high wear resistance.
However, these properties are not only due to the compound but also to the construction of the tyre itself. It has been designed to withstand high loads and the rigours of the trail, always maintaining the designated track. A modern symmetrical tread with two interesting solutions is responsible for this:
The blocks have been given a reworked brick-like shape. They are extremely durable and help the tread work evenly across the surface. This contributes to a stable ride that you'll feel from the first kilometres you drive.
A reinforced belt located along the entire length of the sidewall effectively protects this critical area of the tyre from damage. Additionally, it allows the tyres to maintain optimum stiffness for travelling under high loads.
Continental VanContact A/S Ultra is an all-season tyre that must perform well in all weather conditions. The biggest threat to driver safety, however, is the winter season. That's why the model's designers have taken great care to ensure that the tyres do not fail in such conditions either. They have equipped the tyres with a system of contoured side grooves, known as snow catchers. They absorb more fluff, maintaining a very good grip in difficult road conditions. This also has the effect of reducing braking distances and improving driving stability.
Continental is a German premium brand. The manufacturer's products are a unique blend of experience, gained over 150 years of market presence, with an innovative approach to design. The resulting tyres are as much appreciated by experts as they are by the drivers who deal with them daily.
