History of the brand Continental

Continental-Caoutchouc und Gutta-Percha Compagnie was the original name of the firm which began trading on 8 October 1871. The range of its operations at that time might seem surprising: apart from tyres for carts and bicycles, it originally also produced footwear, waterproof fabrics, and shortly afterwards also balls and toys. And what about car tyres? Remember that at that time the automobile was still confined, if not to the world of dreams, at least to the visionary plans of mad inventors. When in 1870 Siegfried Marcus constructed the first vehicle driven by a petrol engine, few imagined that in just a few decades the car would become a universal means of transport. From bicycles to cars    Continental’s designers might have sensed the direction that events would take. For now, however, the growing demand for bicycle tyres persuaded the firm to launch tyres with an air cushion that could be pumped up. In 1892 the company, which adopted a kicking horse as its symbol, became the first in Germany to begin the production of pneumatic tyres. At the same time its Hannover factory produced the first automobile tyres. The infant motor industry was developing in Germany at a rapid pace. German constructors were quickly assisted by Continental’s engineers who, inspired by the anti-skid bicycle tyres, presented in 1904 their first treaded car tyres, and four years ... Read more >

    Continental ContiWinterContact TS850

    Fantastic tires almost flawless, except, of course, a rather high price. Compared to other winter tires disadvantage is a small stepping stones between the sipe. When someone goes off a lot of paved roads it is quite annoying. When replacing wheels on summer kamczyki must be removed before balancing. Compared to other brands work very time-consuming. More >

    Continental ContiWinterContact TS850

    I wanted to buy Firestone Multihawk 1 but they are no longer being manufactured, that’s why I was looking for tyres with similar tread – and I found Continentals. I drove 1 season on Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 and I am very happy of that choice. Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 is very silent and I had an impression that the comfort is better with them equipped than with my summer Dunlops. It is very good on snow and I had never had any problems with getting out of snowy road. You have to be careful for the slush on a roundabout as the car may occasionally lose its grip but that might be due to the fact that I’m riding a diesel car with a large engine. Very good on wet but More > quite noisy. No signs of wear. The only disadvantage is the price – I’ve bought some time ago and few days later their price dropped down at 30%. Another disadvantage is fuel consumption, which rose at 1L every 60 miles. Nevertheless, this is an outstanding city tyre. I have the T- version and I drove above its limit – no noise, no vibrations, simply perfect!

    Continental ContiWinterContact TS850

    Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 are performing superbly on both wet and dry conditions. Great in snow. I had the opportunity to test it during this year's winter attack and the famous Xavier. Snowdrifts and blizzards way that I was able to ride onthese tyres is simply a measure of performance for these tires. When others were stuck in the snow I calmly drove on without a problem. I just saw the look of some drivers who had to push and I went without support. I highly recommend. I had Kristal Fulda Montero 3 but Continental ContiWinterContact TS850 are much better. I would recommend them to all undecided. Apparently winter is behind us but another driver does not save on tires to just More > buy and enjoy safe driving. Driving with that knowledge that we have in midfield during the winter adventures is essential.
