The Contact Travel Reflective 700c Tire from Continental is a durable, comfortable, endurance / touring tire with semi-slick tread that allows you to confidently maintain rubber-side-down contact on all kinds of terrain. Two protection systems -- Safety System Breaker and Duraskin -- keep this tire inflated and rolling well beyond the lifespan of many other tires thanks to features like an aramid reinforced fabric layer under the tread and a lightweight, cut-resistant sheath.

Perfect tire for my Trek DS 4.
The slick center and knobby edges make for two tires in one. Performs flawlessly on the road and on hard pack gravel rail beds. Very happy with them. They do run much thinner than the stated sizes. But I knew that going in.
