The new CrossContact H/T from Continental is a tyre tailored to the needs of drivers traveling on paved and unpaved roads as well as gravel tracks.
Developed with a particularly robust, high-performance and comfortable design, the new summer tyre bears the M+S rating as proof of its off-road suitability and can be fitted to vehicles with conventional and electric drive systems.
Production will start in the spring and be gradually expanded. Each one is equipped with a rim rib that protects the wheel from damage when coming into contact with stones. The new CrossContact H/T is manufactured for rims with diameters between 15 and 21 inches, with approvals of up to 270 km/h.
For the new summer tyre model, the tyre engineers in Hanover have adapted the tread and compound in such a way that not only is traction possible on and off the road (H/T = highway/terrain), but mileage has also been increased by 20 per cent compared with the previous model. At the same time, its safety-related properties are similarly as advanced as those of its predecessor, and its low rolling noise is gentle on vehicle occupants and the environment.
