Continental's tyre testing - setting standards in standards.
Before every new Continental innovation goes into production, it is tested intensively in order to guarantee suitability, efficiency and most importantly, safety. As well as their enormous in-house proving ground, the Contidrom, near Hanover in Germany, Continental also test their tyres in USA, Sweden, Spain, and New Zealand. Every single Continental tyre is tested in all kinds of weather conditions and on all road surfaces, using the latest advanced technologies and following industry-leading quality processes. Before a new tyre is approved and made available, it has been through over 67,000 tests with Continental’s research and development experts, and has done the equivalent distance of circling the world over 500 times. This is how Continental lives up to their promise of only offering you the safest, most comfortable and reliable mobility solutions.
