- New winter tire available in 91 sizes ranging from 15”-20”
Fort Mill, South Carolina – September 2, 2019. Continental Tire introduced its newest winter tire, the VikingContact™ 7 on September 1, 2019.
As the weather turns, and temperatures begin to drop, it’s a good idea to start planning for winter weather. Once the temperature consistently drops below 45-degrees Fahrenheit, an all-season tire’s ability to grip the road decreases and a winter tire should be utilized.
Continental developed the VikingContact™ 7 with the ideal balance between flexibility and stiffness and in turn, winter and wet performance. To fulfill the needs of snow and ice, but also rainy winter conditions especially in between seasons, the VikingContact™ 7 provides a new pattern design and a special compound solution for:
- Superb grip performance on wintry and wet surfaces
- Powerful traction and braking on icy and snowy roads
- Precise tracking stability under all wintry conditions
The Optimized Nordic Compound provides superb grip on wintry and wet surfaces, while the Advanced Grip Concept delivers powerful traction and braking on icy and snowy roads. The Intelligent Pattern Design with its efficient groove network offers precise tracking stability in wintry conditions.
The VikingContact™ 7 is available in 91 sizes ranging from 15"-20".
“We’re excited to be expanding our winter tire offering with the VikingContact™ 7,” said Travis Roffler, Director of Marketing, Continental Tire. “Utilizing several different technologies, the VikingContact™ 7 is the ideal tire for winter conditions. From extreme grip on snowy and wet surfaces, to enhanced traction and braking, the VikingContact™ 7 gives consumers the confidence they need in tricky road conditions.”
