Rated A/A for low energy consumption and short braking distances in the wet, the tyre benefits from improved rolling resistance over its predecessor, the Conti-VanContact 200, as well as a new tread pattern.

Continental claims the new tyre “noticeable reduces wear”, and is available initially in 10 sizes for 15 to 17-inch rims in widths from 195 to 255 millimeters and with aspect ratios from 50 to 75%, with approvals for speeds of up to 118mph.
