Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety
Especially good directional stability and smooth running performance
Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including the model Land Rover Defender
High performance for off-road driving
The ContiCrossContact™ AT feels at home on all surfaces. The open shoulder provides very good handling characteristics on off-road terrain. The progressive and wear resistant tread compound creates the potential for high mileage performance. And the three circumferential rows of blocks guarantee that the tire rolls very smoothly and quietly.
High-performance all-terrain tyre, superb on and off-road performance
Outstanding mileage performance and quiet ride
Especially good directional stability and smooth running performance. Three circumferential offset staggered blocks enter the road surface smoothly and progressively. This results in exceptional directional stability and extremely smooth and quiet running performance for an all-terrain tyre.
Exceptional braking and traction performance on wet and dry road surfaces. Rows of siped tread blocks ensure outstanding braking and traction performance on wet surfaces.
Outstanding protection against aquaplaning. Wide lateral grooves and open shoulders allow excellent water absorption and expulsion. This offers optimal protection against aquaplaning.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
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.
