Continental Contact Clincher Road Tyre
Usually dispatched within 24 hours
Fast, safe and comfortable – guaranteed!
The CONTACT is the jack-of-all-trades amongst city and trekking tyres. Its tread design is based upon the principles of bionics. A uniform center tread/belt assembly ensures a smooth and speedy ride on the road. Flexible shoulder lugs and fine sipes guarantee grip in curves and on loose surfaces. The overall tyre construction rounds off the overall high quality. The ultra fine carcass fabric reduces the rolling resistance while providing a noticeably more comfortable ride. Available in reflective and non-reflective versions.

I was surprised that they arrived in a wheel sized box. I hadn't noticed that they weren't folding tyres. However they have a nice tread that grips well on all surfaces. I wanted them to convert my old road bike to a bike I can use on the local rail trails (gritty surface). So, apart from being a bit harder to fit onto the rims because of them being a little less flexible, I am really pleased with them. They still run well on road surfaces and don't slow the bike down. Our local roads are a bit iffy in any case and so the wider tyre and slightly heavier tread give good grip there too. I did slow the whole process down by mounting the first one in the wrong direction, so take care to find the little arrows on the sidewall! All in all I am very pleased with them.
Good tire, not folding
This isn't a folding tyre. Not like a road bike folding tyre. It is full size. Other than that fact, this tyre perform very well. Installed it on my hybrid. Their 700x32 size is actually a 700x28 size in real life. Didn't notice until I received the tyre and compared it to my old one. The tyre size didn't bother me but for those who care, this could be an issue.
So Far So Good
Bought these as a winter commuting tire to run on the snow cleared bike paths in Calgary. So far they seem sufficiently grippy are comfortable and smooth. The tires arrived quickly and in great condition. Only issue was I thought they would have the reflective sidewall as shown but it does not.
I bought 2 sets of Continental Contact II for our performance hybrid and we enjoy them. Very honest tire for the price.
Bought this tyre before and I`ve come back for more-perfect for speedy commuting in wet or dry conditions!
The tyres are reasonable and ride well but do tend to wear quite fast. My rear tyre is worn out in less than 2,000km of commuting but no punctures.
bought them for the wifes bike as she wasent sure about the lack of tread on gatorskin 28s she was useing on towpaths and road alike in all conditions up to 50 mile trips these have given her a lot more confidence and dont apear to be that much slower when i am out with her
Does the job
I use this tire for spring riding, in wet snow an freezing rain: they stick to the pavement great and have low rolling resistance. Will probably use them on my city bike also. 10/10
Contact 2 Tip top
Only covered 150miles so far in my new tyres but almost all those miles have been in dodgy weather combining both road and cycle route trails and so far they feel excellent. Definitely a recommendation from me thus far.
Continental Contact II Clincher Road Tyre - Black
These tyres have proved to be an excellent choice for my daily commute to work. They ride very smoohtly and have lots of grip. I wish I have tried them before. I recommend them for long or short commute.
