With the WinterContact TS 860, leading tyre manufacturer Continental is launching a new winter specialist for compact and mid-range models, building on the safety credentials of its highly successful predecessor. 

Over the past four years, the ContiWinterContact TS 850 has proved best-in-test in no fewer than 47 comparative tests run by the European trade press, automobile clubs and consumer organisations, making it the most successful Continental winter tyre to date.

With safety and driving enjoyment a top priority, the latest WinterContact TS 860 makes some suitably impressive improvements across the board. When braking on wet wintry roads it performs five percent better than its outstanding predecessor, the ContiWinterContact TS 850. Braking distances are four percent shorter on ice, with further improvements in snow handling, grip on snow and ride quality. Mileage and rolling resistance are on a par with the successful TS 850.

These advances are made possible by combining a new tread compound with a newly developed tread design. The Cool Chili compound has a high proportion of silica that reduces braking distances on wet roads due to its special damping characteristics. The highly flexible polymer matrix brings a noticeable improvement in traction properties on all wintry road surfaces, providing extra grip. Also new are special high-performance resins that maintain the flexibility of the compound even at low winter temperatures, leading to shorter braking distances on cold, wet, icy and snow-covered surfaces.

To enable effective braking even on icy roads, the tyre development engineers at Continental have come up with what they call Liquid Layer Drainage. When braking on ice, a film of water is created under the tread that significantly reduces the tyre's contact patch with the road. The new technology, incorporating an additional drainage channel molded into the tread block, allows the water to drain away faster than was previously possible, effectively cutting braking distances on icy roads.
