Continental’s improved rubbers
> German company’s new tyres are made for Malaysia
mileage-polymers have been elevated to an unprecedented level. This enables a high grip level for braking and cornering, combined with provision of longer mileage.
UltraContact UC6 lowers the noise level further by introducing “Noise Breakers 2.0”, an enhanced version of the well-known Noise Breaker concept to interrupt the noise waves in the grooves.
Decreased noise levels: Wide range of sizes:
Available for rims from 15 to 18-inch diameters, covering a wide range of passenger car vehicle models.
Best choice for drivers who consider comfort a priority in their riding experience.
Low noise levels:
Positioned on the inner shoulder of the tyre pattern, “Harmonic Comfort Chambers”, based on the “Helmholtz resonator” principle, cancel out unpleasant noise frequencies. The “Whisper Compound” of the CC6 features polymers which adapt to the rough surface of the road, resulting in the reduction of vibration for less tyre noise. The selected “Whisper Compound” also supports the damping effect to provide improved rolling comfort.
High mileage performance:
With the advanced sulphur network in the compound acting as an enhanced bond for the polymers, the product delivers greater efficiency in mileage performance.
Available for rims from 13 to 16-inch diameters.
“We are thrilled to present the all-new and upgraded Generation 6 products to the Malaysian market, taking their driving experience to new heights. The launch of the Generation 6 products marks an important milestone in the history of Continental Tyres and proves to be another testament of our relentless pursuit for customer satisfaction and commitment to the local customers.” added Wilson.
The UltraContact UC6 and ComfortContact CC6 are made at CTM’s high-tech Alor Star plant and are now available at CTM dealerships nationwide – BestDrive Continental, Continental, Dunlop Klinikar and Viking Stores.
Wide range of sizes:
The media gang and I were quite convinced and impressed with improvements the two latest Continental tyres have over their predecessors; the UC6 glues itself to the tarmac – on the straights; fast and slow, sweeping and sharp corners, in the dry and wet; and it also stops the car better. The CC6, on the other hand, records less amount of noise (albeit via a decibel meter since normal human eyes would barely notice the difference). Driving the Volkswagen Jetta and Nissan Teana used for the demos, I really had no complaint about the tyres, as far as the ride and handling were concerned.
