With our new SPEED-GRIP 5, winter cannot surprise you. This new tyre with its attractive pattern and striking off-shoulder design is a true multi-talent combining strong winter features with a reliable dry performance.
Drive with confidence, no matter the conditions. Snow hooks and grip edges allow superior handling in deep snow. The sipe concept positioned in various angles results in an efficient interaction with snow surfaces during acceleration and braking.
The tread pattern design helps disperse water on the road during braking and cornering. The V-shape pattern leads to an effective water and snow slush drainage for balanced stability in wet driving conditions.
Added stiffness and well-balanced structure of the shoulder blocks lead to precise handling. So, you are in control when it comes to cornering in any situation the cold season has to offer.
The new winter specialist convinces not only with very good winter characteristics but is also:

The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to class E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing for each subsequent class through to E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tire, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A to C.
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tires only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
