Feature and benefits
The WorldContact 4x4 tyre is the face of the future, and Continental Tyres answer to the challenges faced by adventurous 4x4 owners in Southern Africa. Special characteristics of the new-generation tyre include:
An extra wide tread for excellent tread life.
A high strength steel casing to provide improved resistance to punctures.
An interlocking block tread design for quiet running on tarmac surfaces.
Wide open-tread grooves for superior traction in the wet and a resistance to aquaplaning.
A good self-cleaning action of the tread for enhanced grip in mud and sandy conditions.
Straight sidewalls for improved resistance to sidewall intrusions from protruding rocks, stumps or other threatening off-road situations.
Shoulder ribs to deflect objects that can cause sidewall intrusions.
Large tread blocks combined with broader shoulder
Central circumferential rib and large intermediate tread blocks
Modern compound technology
Open grooves between the tread blocks
Off- road robustness and high levels of traction with excellent self-cleaning properties
Improved steering response and on-road stability
Improved wet grip levels in on-road conditions and resistance to wear
Increased levels of water displacement and improved resistance to aquaplaning
All-season LT/SUV tire for OE fitments
Ventus AS is designed to provide the ride comfort, low noise and all-season traction that exists in these original equipment tires
6 Circumferential grooves: Cools the tire, improves steerability and allows water to escape the footprint
Solid centerline: Improves driving feel and stability.
Open shoulder design: Provides “see-thru” evacuation of water and slush.
High density siping: Gives the Ventus AS hundreds of biting edges for noise performance
Stepped groove walls: Provide extra edges for steering traction
Rim protect bar protects the rim from scuffing while preventing the sidewall from “rolling over” the rim flange.Sidewall shape optimized to bend gently-reducing stresses and improving ride comfort.
Sidewall compound specially formulated to resist ozone, aging, cracking and abrasion.
Nylon belt overlay provides strength to the tread area and restricts belt motion-the key to high performance handling.
Two extra-wide high tensile steel belts give the tire crisp handling and flex to absorb road shocks.
