The ContiSportContact 2 is Continental's Max Performance Summer tire developed to meet the needs of the drivers of powerful sports cars, sports coupes and luxurious performance sedans. The ContiSportContact 2 features Continental's bionic* compound and contour technologies to enhance traction, braking and handling. Like all summer tires, the Continental ContiSportContact 2 is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
The ContiSportContact 2 features Continental's bionic tread compound technology molded into an asymmetric design that enhances steering response and precision while the tire's continuous ribs provide the circumferential stiffness to transmit drive and braking forces. The continuous circumferential tread grooves between the ribs help disperse water to resist hydroplaning. The tire's internal structure features Continental's Advanced Mold Contour (AMC), which allows the tire to become wider during braking to help shorten stopping distances. The ContiSportContact 2 features twin steel belts reinforced by nylon to stabilize the tread area and enhance handling as well as high-speed capability.
