Aralon350™, the new adaptive hybrid cap ply for maximum high speed up to 350 km/h.
The sophisticated Aralon350™ technology accelerates your vehicle safely up to 350 km/h. This newly designed strong Hybrid Cap Ply provides a controlled tire growth – even at highest speeds.
Force Vectoring for maximum control, a new era in tread pattern development.
The improved inner and outer tread pattern ensures best steering precision and support for lateral forces during cornering. The advanced Macro Block Design keeps you safe and in control at any manoeuvre. Stiff centre ribs and asymmetric concave longitudinal grooves greatly support overall stability.
Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions.
The new Micro Flexibility Compound ensures an optimum interlocking between tyre and road surface. This guarantees better acceleration and shorter braking distances at high and low temperatures – in wet or dry conditions.
The German magazine sportauto has published in issue 04/2019 the "Summer Tire Test 2019".
The tested tire size was 245/30 R 20 90Y, test vehicle was a Honda Civic Type R.
The test was conducted by sportauto in cooperation with Bridgestone in Rome/Italy.

ContiSeal™ is a technology developed by Continental designed to seal a damaged tire tread. In case of penetration by foreign objects such as nails, there is no need for immediate roadside tire changes, and holes remain sealed even if the puncturing object becomes dislodged.
The SSR system is a runflat technology developed by Continental especially for low section tires, which still keeps the tires compatible with all standard rims. The SSR principle is based on a self-supporting reinforced sidewall. In case of a puncture, this prevents the sidewall from being crushed between the rim and the road, and the tire from slipping off the rim, which makes a spare tire obsolete. Not having to carry a spare tire means a reduction in weight, which improves fuel efficiency. It also adds up to 80 litres of free space in the trunk. Fitting on four positions is highly recommended, if not yet mandatory by law and a tire repair is not allowed.
ContiSilent™ is a tire noise-reducing technology developed by Continental. It is designed to reduce interior noise on all road surfaces. ContiSilent™ tires are equipped with an inner tire absorber, a polyurethane foam, attached to the inner surface of the tread area with an adhesive. Regardless of the temperature, the structure of the foam stays intact. ContiSilent™ helps reduce interior vehicle noise up to 9 dB(A), depending on the type of vehicle, its speed and the road surface. At the moment it is only available for summer tires and is compatible with all commonly available rims. Driving performance is not affected and there is no negative influence on mileage and load/speed capability. Fitting on four positions is recommended.
