Love at first Contact.

Designed for long-lasting performance over a variety of road types and terrains, Continental's Contact Plus Tire provides exceptional puncture protection and versatile grip to make your next bike tour worry-free.

This updated, 650b x 1.6 version of the Contact features Continentals most popular tread design from all of their touring tires. With a smooth center rolling surface with textured shoulders, the semi-smooth tire's chevroned surface easily drives water, mud, muck, and other undesirables to the edges. Featuring Continent's SafetyPlus technology, this tire takes the SafetySystem Breaker and combines it with a highly elastic material, resulting in an extremely puncture and cut resistant casing that even lowers rolling resistance. Additionally, the SafetyPlus Breaker even meets the demands of high-speed e-bikes capable of speeds up to 50 km/h.

Good but heavy

Ridden them on dail commute for 500 miles, zero flats, rolls smooth, good traction.

Cons feel heavy and slow.

Guess I would rather be a little slower than have to stop for a flat in winter
