The RainSport 5 made for exceptional wet performance, enhanced mileage and superior steering control – it’s the sporty solution for compact-, middle- and upper-class vehicles including SUVs.
Be safe even on rainy days in summer. The further developed Shark Skin Technology and the wide in-block-grooves disperse water out of the tread pattern, effectively reducing the risk of aquaplaning. Moreover, the innovative Aqua-Twist Sipes channel the water out of the tyre, leading to increased grip on wet and slippery roads.
Enjoy a long journey with the new RainSport 5. A newly developed tread compound guarantees low abrasion and the stiffer shoulders ensure even treadwear. The optimised tread design provides even pressure distribution on the contact surface, which leads to a higher mileage and an outstanding noise performance.
Take pleasure in every ride at a new level of sportiveness on dry roads. Through the stiffer base, the specially designed wide center ribs and its reinforced outside shoulder, this tyre truly delivers top cornering stability, great steering response and control for maximum driving pleasure – come rain or shine.
The wet grip rating indicates how well the tire will perform in wet conditions, with performance graded from class A down to class E. A high grade means short braking distances on wet roads.
Reduced rolling resistance saves fuel and cuts CO2 emissions. Class A tires deliver the best fuel efficiency, with fuel consumption increasing for each subsequent class through to E.
This is the external rolling noise generated by the tire, measured in decibels. The label shows the noise level rated in classes from A to C.
In addition to these three label values, there are also pictograms − if applicable − relating to performance in severe snow conditions (3PMSF) and/or grip in icy conditions (the latter applies to passenger car tires only).
With the EU label generator, you can access the specific label values for your Continental tires.
