Continental Launches ContiComfortContact CC5 Tyre

Continental Sime Tyre yesterday introduced its latest passenger car tyre, the ContiComfortContact CC5, into the Malaysian market. The new offering replaces the ContiComfortContact CC1.

Engineered in Germany, and made at the CST plant in Alor Star, the tyre, which will be available in 31 sizes from 13-inch to 16-inch in Asean markets and in four and five-block patterns, is the first ever tyre Continental has engineered specifically to cater for Asian motorists.

Apparently, here in Asia, consumers, while looking for performance, tend to value ride comfort and low noise levels as well, arguably ahead of performance. According to Conti, features expected by customers of a tyre made by a premium brand for the compact segment places comfort ride at the top of the key preference heap at 45%, followed by economy at 25%.

So, the result is the CCC5, which of course offers a substantially quieter, more comfortable ride than its predecessor, the CCC1. Other improvements over the latter include shorter braking distance and improved handling performance.

Technical elements that help the CCC achieve low noise levels include a ‘noise breaker’ utilised from Continental’s Silent Tread Pattern Groove Technology, which helps break air-waves in the longitudinal grooves, thus reducing noise, but without a compromise in performance.

Elsewhere, the CCC5 incorporates V-shaped sipe inner ribs on the tread blocks to enable smoother rolling aspects throughout the tyre's circumferential, thus having an optimum driving comfort, and the tyre also features advanced silica compound technology, which helps minimize rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency.

At launch, 12 sizes are available, with the rest of the model range slated for gradual introduction into the market as the year progresses. Sizes start from 175/70 R13 right up to 235/60 R16.
