Following the launch of the Continental ComfortContact 6 (CC6) and UltraContact 6 (UC6), Continental Tyres Malaysia (CTM) has just introduced the MaxContact 6 (MC6), completing the full range of Generation 6 tyres. MC6 is the brands ultra-high performance (UHP) tyres that succeeds the MC5 that most of us are familiar with.

Produced at CTM’s plant in Alor Star, the MC6 Continentals ultra-high performance (UHP) tyres that succeeds the MC5 most of us are familiar with. Compared to the MC5, Continental has poured their R&D focus towards improving wet braking, dry handling and mileage while maintaining the same high levels of comfort and rolling noise.

Developed for rim sizes ranging from 16- to 20-inch in diameter, the MC6 features the brands latest innovation in tyre technology for superb acceleration, braking and cornering. The inner tyre walls features a Chevron Grip Element designed to provide even pressure distribution on the inside tyre walls for enhanced grip at the limit.

To further improve the tyres performance under demanding situations, the inner tyre grove has what Continental calls them Stabiliser Bars that stiffens the tyre’s overall structure during hard cornering. The MC6 also features new Adaptive Grip Control and Xtreme-Force Construction where special adhesive polymers have been applied to the tyre compound resulting in higher levels of predictability and higher grip threshold.

Despite the improved performance, the MC6 is equally as quiet and comfortable compared to its predecessor thanks to Noise Breaker 2.0 technology which breaks down the sound waves that flows through the grooves.

Prices of the tyres have yet to be announced but CTM ensured that their new MC6 will carry a highly competitive price tag. Production will go into full swing by the end of 2017 so it’s not too soon to head over to your nearest Continental dealership for a fresh set of UHP MC6.
