Continental TS860

Fans of the Continental TS850, are fans for a reason, they are a fantastic winter tyre! Continental maybe about to do something stupid or amazing.

The Continental TS850 has been our bestselling winter tyre for the last 3 years, this fantastic winter tyre has won 47 winter tyre tests, ran by the trade press and car clubs across Europe, making this tyre one of Continental's most successful winter tyres. For winter 2016/2017, Continental are going to release in the UK, the new TS860 winter tyre. This will replace the TS850!! Bonkers you may be thinking, why would you replace a tyre that has been so successful? As many manufactures are reaching for greatness in the winter tyre world, continental will not be caught sleeping.

They have come up with this as the next great tyre the TS860.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boasting improvement on an already fantastic winter tyre. The biggest and impressive feature is the braking. When braking on wet wintry roads the TS860 will perform 5% better than the TS850, equally as impressive on ice in which braking distances are improved by 4%. Figures 4% & 5% may not look massive but this improvement on a multi award-winning tyre is fantastic. The test show the millage and rolling resistance to be the same as the TS850.

These improvements are made possible by the use of the new Cool Chilli compound; the compound has a high silica content, which reduces braking distances due to its damping characteristics. Other new technology continental use is a special high performance resin that maintains the flexibility of the compound at extremely low temperatures. To improve the water drainage even more, continental have develop what they call “Liquid Layer Drainage”. This is a drainage channel, which is moulded into the tread block giving fast water dispersion.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Said to be released in the autumn of 2016, the size range is not massive, only giving 21 sizes in 14” to 17”. The label data scores now are C for rolling resistance and B for wet grip.
