    I replaced the 35mm wide tires on my Kona Dew Plus with these. The stock tires wore fast and rolled slow. The Conti's are showing little sign of wear a few hundred miles. The handle the wet of Seattle without any problems.

    Sturdy Touring Tires with great traction

    These tires are great to ride on a regular ride or a tour. This tire rides well, rolls well and has great traction in all conditions that I have rode in. I had been riding slick tires, but the tread and tread pattern really gives me a much more secure feeling when the road gets wet. As a Clydesdale, I run these tires at 100 psi and they have rolled very fast on regular rides solo or with the group.

    I got these tires to ride during the wetter winter months and I was surprised to see how well they roll. I am a Clydesdale-sized rider and tire pressure is important to get a good rolling tire. I have the 700x28 and run these at 100 psi and I feel little to no resistance and they roll very easily. They have great traction and roll easily over rougher sections of pavement. I will buy these tires again.

    Started with Contacts 4 years ago on a Giant TCX1. On my 4th pair now, getting about 2000 miles out of 'em. Not the longest lasting. On the flip side, not one flat in almost 9000 miles over 4 years. I will not buy another model tire until I start getting flats, so far it hasn't happened. I've been on rides where guys have gotten 2 flats on the same ride. Not sure what Conti is putting under the tread, it must be some sort of armored material. I have to intentionally flatten a tire every winter and go through the tire removal and tube replacement process just to keep fresh in my mind how to change the tube, in case i ever need to do it on an actual ride.

    5 flats in 2 weeks of touring around Southern Denmark with new Conti Contacts - 3 in back, 2 in front, all in different locations on the tire. To be fair, we did hear from some Danish cyclists that they tend to get a decent number of flats, especially when it rains and flint that is for some reason mixed in with other materials tends to flip over and puncture tires with the sharp point.

    Great tire for my Rans Rocket
    rating
    by Guenther
    Cycling Enthusiast

    I use this as the rear tire on my recumbent. So far, it's working well. The width means that the tire absorbs socks and bumps well. It's not too draggy on pavement and it gets okay grip on gravel. In extremely slick spots, I have lost traction, but its never slid otherwise. The construction overall seems sturdy and likely to hold up for awhile.

    Installed the 20 inch Conti Contact as a replacement front tire and also rainy days were approaching and I certainly weren't going to ride on a front worn tire. So far, it has performed just what I wanted and that's good traction and grip turning corners. Just having the new tired gave me ease of mind riding in wet conditions. Price is good too!

    These donuts tasted horrible, but I found them to be excellent replacement tires for my bike. They're pretty ideal for commuting and the occasional weekend trek. They handled all that DC has thrown at them potholed streets, slick pavement, leafy bike lanes, shuttered government roads with aplomb. Great price, fast shipping.

    I purchased this tire as an exact replacement for the rear tire on my Surly Long Haul Trucker. The tire I'm replacing has just over 2,000 miles on it right now. My plan is to just replace the rear, thats the only one that shows significant wear at this point. It appears that the front may go another 2,000 miles before needing replacement. It's a heavy bike, and I'm a heavy rider. I ride about 90% pavement, paths, steets and rural highway, and about 10% gravel roads. Zero flats in over 2,000 miles. The reflective strip on the sidewall is a nice feature as well.

    Commuter's Second Set of Continental's - 3.5 Stars

    2 of 3 customers found this review helpful.

    This was my second set after the first similar model set lasted 2 years. Would give 3.5 stars. Read on.

    Commute Year Round City driving 20 milesweek to and from Amtrak Train over asphalt, broken asphalt, along side railroad on railroad rocks, past homeless encampments, over broken glass, gravel, potholes - typical Oakland CA. By the start of rainy season the tires get dirty and the reflective tape wears and becomes more dull. A small part detached (13 inch) but that's it. Cleaning moderately helps but it's less reflective especially compared to specialized tires I see on the Amtrak bike storage car and the reflect tape is applied cattywhompus (made in India). Reflective tires are an important function due to dark morning commutes. Well over a year in use and cracks appear in the tread. I use a tire liner to protect the inner tube but even so, with both sets, I've never had a puncture - pulled glass shards out, but no puncture. Very similar wear and tear compared to specialized Armadillos but cheaper. Unfortunately I anticipate this set may fall short of a full two years of tread wear. I'm going to try another brand.

    These tires work well on wet and dry roads, I've also used them on dry hardpack trails with great success. They feel a bit narrower than advertised, but I'm not bothered by that. I also really appreciate the reflective bands on the tire for night rides.
