Continental Quiet Tyres uses remarkably simply solution to absorb tyre sound waves

Conti’s engineers say that,” the Black Chili rubber compound. That is used in the foam lining of the new Quiet Tyres. Hence, is designed to mesh with the roughness of the road. At the same time, temporary atomic connections. Thus, between the tyre  and the road surface ensure high adhesion. So acting like small suction pads. Both factors make for the greatest possible adhesion. As a result, in all directions.Including, during braking, cornering, and acceleration. Of course, on both wet and dry roads”.

These new  Quiet Tyres will be on sale for the use on high performance cars. The tyres were shown off and tested on the roads of Southern Spain, near Marbella. The event was attended by top motorsport journalists on a 300 mile stretch of roads, using cars like the Jaguar F-Type, Mercedes CLA AMG, BMW M4, Porsche Macan S, Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray and Tesla Model S.

Continental Quiet Tyres

The engineers at Continental tyres must be highly delighted. Especially, with recent innovations. Continental quiet tyres as I call them. Have brought a different meaning to tyres that you simply cannot hear. This is a great advantage to all types of vehicle. Especially, the super cars that rely on comfort. The new Continental quiet tyres will certainly give them that.

The theory is quiet simple? It is like any kind of sound proofing. Just a layer of special foam material bonded to the inside of the tyres tread. The strip is from 100 to 120 mm wide and is fitted to the whole circumference of the inside of the tread area, by using ContiSeal. ContiSeal is a puncture repair material to bond the strip into the Continental quiet tyres.

The system can be used on almost any radial tyres. The foam is very light and has no effect on the weight or balancing of the tyre and wheel assembly.
