Without compromising safety. In addition, the new tire offers superior road holding in dry conditions. And an even shorter braking distance even in the wet.
These advances achieved thanks to a number of innovations. Affecting the tire carcass, design and tread compound.
Furthermore, the use of new materials allows for less energy dispersion and a consequent reduction in rolling resistance.
Continental AllSeason 2, the tread design
In designing the tread of the new AllSeasonContact 2, Continental opt for one design with V grooves.
This offers obvious advantages in the wet. As it creates special channels which support the expulsion of water towards the sidewalls of the tyre. And they facilitate drainage from the contact area.
In addition, the numerous C-shaped blocks in the center of the tread interact with each other, ensuring precise handling throughout the life of the tyre.
The team of specialists Continental offers a combination of various “Chili” technologiesfor the mix of the tread. The new highly cushioning plasticizers ensure a secure fit. And precise steering response in snowy and icy road conditions.

This adapts to the road surface, thus reducing wear and increasing the mileage of the tyre.
Continental AllSeason 2, handling and safety
Continental AllSeason 2 builds on the extremely safe handling properties of its predecessor. At the same time, wet and dry performance has been improved and mileage has been extended.
During its construction, Continental pays particular attention to the different needs of traditionally fueled vehicles. And alternative and this makes the new tire, with its performance values.
It is the ideal solution in all seasons and for every type of engine. In fact, the Group also offers measurements for the majority of electric cars. As Tesla Model 3, VW ID.Buzz o CUPRA Born.

AllSeasonContact 2 it will be available on the market in autumn 2023, in time for the tire change. Continental will gradually begin production of 99 sizes for rims with a diameter of 15 to 21 inches and, together with the first generation AllSeasonContact, will thus be able to equip 87% of all vehicles available on the market.
