The Continental CrossContact Viking is a winter tire manufactured for SUV and light truck vehicles. The tire has excellent winter weather traction and road grip and is able to conquer the most extreme winter road conditions. The tread pattern helps avoid hydroplaning situations. The model’s steering precision is enhanced by the constant road-to- tire contact which gives an excellent feel for the road while driving. The tire’s braking distance was shortened and its cornering and maneuvering ability were improved as well, making the model safer to use in winter weather. The CrossContact Viking has a longer lasting tread life.

The excellent traction and the constant road contact allows for a shorter braking distance, increasing the tire’s safety.
Its superb cornering and maneuvering ability is made possible by the tread blocks on the tire’s shoulder that provide extra biting edges.
Longer Tread Life
The tire has a longer tread life because it wears out evenly due to equally distributing the driving force across the tire’s tread.
