The CrossContact LX25 is Continental’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of crossovers and small SUVs who want a comfortable, luxurious ride combined with confident, all-season capability. The CrossContact LX25 is designed to provide a smooth, quiet ride plus crisp handling and sure-footed traction in dry, wet and wintry conditions, including light snow.
Continental’s Next Generation EcoPlus+ Technology compound is molded into the CrossContact LX25’s symmetric tread pattern. Comfort Ride Technology places an absorption layer below the tread to deliver a smooth, comfortable ride without sacrificing steering response, and the continuous circumferential ribs help reduce tread noise. The Next Generation EcoPlus+ Technology tread compound helps extend tread life and reduce stopping distances in wet conditions, while the wide, circumferential grooves allow water to flow through the footprint to enhance hydroplaning resistance. Lateral and diagonal sipes provide biting edges for traction in slippery conditions, and Traction Grooves feature biting teeth to trap snow and create snow-to-snow traction.
The internal construction of the CrossContact LX25 utilizes a polyester cord body supporting two heavy-duty, steel belts. The spirally wound, polyamide reinforcement helps stabilize the footprint to provide high-speed capability and handling, and the Comfort Ride Technology absorption layer is located above the reinforcement to maximize ride quality.
