MaxContact MC6

When MAX Performance Counts

Quickfacts

  • Reduced braking distance in wet and dry conditions

  • Superior sporty handling and direct feedback from the road

  • Perfect combination of good mileage and low noise for everyday driving


MaxContact MC6 (1)

Technical details

Multiple features guarantee the highest performance. 

Dedicated areas on MaxContactTM MC6's tread design are responsible for the high performance of the tyre. These features cover all four directional forces that are applied to the tyre tread. 


  • Stabiliser Bars

Fix and stabilise the outside shoulder blocks and the longitudinal rib to form one stable unit, for enhanced handling and cornering grip. Depending on the dimension, there are about 50 Stabiliser Bars positioned around the tyre's circumference. 

  • Asymmetric Rib Geometry

The supporting angles of the rib-shoulders prevent slanting of the ribs under heavy cornering manoeuvres and sharp changes of steering direction, thus ensuring an enhanced cornering response.

  •  Longitudinal Chamfered Edges

Prevent the rolling-in-effect of the ribs in the lateral direction for maximum contact area to achieve enhanced cornering grip and stability.

  • Chevron Grip Elements

Performance designed Chevron Grip Elements allow even pressure distribution during cornering even on the inside tyre of the vehicle resulting in enhanced grip, better wet braking and handling.

  • Stable Rib Structure 

To achieve faster dry braking and efficient traction for acceleration, these longitudinal ribs are engineered to avoid block distortion by transferring circumferential forces efficiently to the road. 

  • Noise Breaker 2.0

Breaks down the noise waves which flow through the grooves to ensure a comfortable low noise ride.



ContiMaxContact MC6_Multifuncitonal Tread

Meets the extreme high grip requirements of the driver.


The special adhesive polymers within the MaxContactTM MC6 compund are specifically designed to accomplish the exterme high grip requirements of the driver. 


Continental is a technology leader in compounding. For MC6 we took all levels of traction into account to reach maximum grip under all conditions. 


  • Mechanical Interlocking

Acts on a mm-scale (millimetre), assures primary contact to the road and interlocaks the tread of the tyre to the road's surface on a mechanical level.


  • Hysteresis

Acts on a µm-scale, generated by the deformation of visco-elastic materials on a micro level due to surface roughness or stick / slip movements of the tyre while driving. 


  •  Adhesion

​Acts on a nanometre-scale, superior adhesion to the road surface created by molecular forces - based on the 'Van-der-Waals-Forces" - which bonds the polymers to the road surface on a nanometre level. 


ContiMaxContact_MC6_Adaptive Grip Compund

Reduce tyre flexing to bring handling and high-speed stability to the next level.


The stiffness of the Xtreme-Force ply material of MaxContactTM MC6 reduces tyre flexing during hard cornering and at high speeds providing maximum control and better handling. 


At lower speeds or less sporty driving, less force are applied to the tyres. In such cases, the Xtreme-Force ply material is still flexible enough to ensure a comfortable ride in the comfort zone area, while a standard tyre would be not that flexible. 


In the sporty zone, the Xtreme-Forece ply material causes MC6 to be more rigid which provides a direct feedback to the driver. A conventional ply material would be flexing much more which reduces the feedback in cornering and steering at high speeds.
