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 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.
