Continental doesn't need much introduction to their ultra high performance tires, but its all-season line-up is also making news. The ProContact with EcoPlus Technology was developed to enhance driving pleasure, save money and surpass the competition. It provides improved fuel efficiency, reduced CO2 emissions and an 80000-mile limited treadwear warranty, without sacrificing wet braking performance, which is why it was awarded at the 2010 SEMA Show.

"We're very honored to be receiving this prestigious award," said Bill Caldwell, vice president of sales and marketing, Continental Tire. "The ProContact with EcoPlus Technology tire is a cut above the rest. Our engineers have specifically designed it to not only save our customers money, but to also reduce CO2 emissions - which is something that is very important to Continental Tire as a company. This tire is a reflection of our focus and commitment to environmental responsibility."

EcoPlus Technology consists of two main components: Tg-F Polymers and +Saline. The Tg-F polymers are temperature-activated, functional polymers that increase compound-bonding, improving the wear and fuel efficiency of the tire. The second component of the EcoPlus Technology, +Silane, is an additive that works to enhance the tire's grip on slippery roads, drastically reducing stopping distances. These technologies work together to enhance the driving experience for a long tire life when conditions are normal, and they provide excellent wet braking on slippery roads.
