High performance tyre for road and easy terrain. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Outstanding handling for on-road and general off-road use. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including for example the models Land Rover Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz ML-Class and Nissan X-Trail.
The tires of the ContiCrossContact LX Sport product line guarantee optimum handing and braking performance both on the road as well as on easily navigable terrain. This is achieved with stiff rows of tread blocks in the center of the tread pattern which enable very good transmission of power between the tire and the ground surface.
Also worthy of particular mention is the excellent braking performance on wet roads which is made possible to a high number of tread blocks on the shoulder and a balanced sipe density. Finally, the flat design of the tire contour makes for a uniform wear pattern and optimized rolling resistance.
Outstanding handling for on-road and general off-road use
Very good braking characteristics on dry and wet road
Optimized rolling resistance
Outstanding handling for on-road and general off-road use. The stiff intermediate block rows greatly improve dry handling and enhance the force transmission from tyre to road.
Excellent braking performance on dry and wet roads. For shorter braking distances in wet conditions as well as improved on- and off-road traction, the traction edges of blocks and sipes are increased.
Optimised rolling resistance. The flat tyre contour is optimised for an even wear shape.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
