This tire actually has some serious tread in the center.

I travel across town and back (15miles) every day and constantly getting flats on slick tires. After 2 weeks these tires do not appear to wearing and I've not had a flat. The Continental tire with matching Continental tube seems to be complimenting each other. Grips the road good as well as terrain.

in 77 I built up a mercian for everydaytour - built the campy hubweinmann rimdt spoked wheels on a 27' platform. why? because back then, if you had to, you could get 27 tires everywhere - even in rural general stores. today the pickings are getting slim. if you live in a retirement center or gated community - the kenda tires will work. if you ride out on back roads where there may be a lot of debris - go with something a bit tougher - if you don't want to walk!! it would be a toss up between these and the Schwalbe tires - both are at the top of the field of what is available these days.

Good Quality Tire

Good quality tire. The tire tread is really good for gripping and it appears to be of good quality. It was a little difficult to get on wheel. However, I recommend the tire. I bought Kenda 27 tubes with this 27x1 14 tire and was very disappointed with the tubes. One of the Kenda tubes would not hold air upon installation and they are also more like 28 or larger tubes. They are larger than advertised. The Continental Ride Tour tire is really good. However, stay away from Kenda products. I would rate the Kenda tube a 0 from a scale of 1 to 5 stars. I did a 1 star review of the Kenda tubes and it never showed up in the reviews. Wonder why!

I commute all year around on my bike and I got these tires just in time for the snow. I am very pleasantly surprized by how well these tires handle slippery conditions and they cut through snow very well. Plenty of traction even in this granulated snow we're getting, It compacts to ice in the sun.

This tire is intended for hooked rims which I did not know upon ordering. I have an old Univega with straight rims, and i have been riding on these tires for months without a problem, despite the warning on the tires themselves. These are a lifesaver compared to the vintage tires I replaced.

Good tire and great price. I bought these along with Kenda thorn resistant tube. so far so good, no flat during my daily commute around the streets of NY with glass all over the place. I got 2 of these cheaper than what they would have cost me at my local bike shop even with the cost of shipping.

Decent, but Narrow

So far the only issue I've found is that you feel the center strip catch a bit if you bump over a road groove. They corner fine, & give a good ride feel overall. They're a bit more narrow then I'd hoped, but about what I expected. They measure at 30mm on a fairly wide rim. If there's been a 27 x 1 3/8 in this I'd have gone with that.

I commute on this tire over rough pavement, gravel and dirt and really love the way they handle on all these surfaces. The center bead reduces rolling resistance so they don't slow me down. I will be ordering these again.

I've been riding my old hand-me-down Schwann 27 road bike for over 7 years now. Always been cheap and find the cheapest tires to put on. Boy, thought I treat myself for once and shell for a pair of these luxury tough looking tires since I once rode on one rental in mtn that equipped with Continential TOUR RIDE. Best decision ever!

It has great traction and go over tree branches and light gravels with confidence. Easily hug the road as you twist and turn in wet condition as well. Very comfy and not slowing me down at all. 5 stars and will buy again. Hope it will last for quite some time.

I have used the this tire as a reliable touring tire, (loaded with panniers) and for riding many of the dirt roads in my area. Extremely durable, with center bead greatly reducing rolling resistance. With thorn tubes inside it almost seems bomb proof!

Good compromise for narrow wheels on cinders

Formerly only riding my 1984-vintage Lotus Eclair touring bike on pavement, I thought some alternative tire was needed for the proposed venue for my cycling group's annual trip on the Erie Canal route. The Continental Tour Ride was proposed by my local bike shop (who didn't have any in stock). The tires went on the rims relatively easily (I don't have a lot of experience doing this, I must confess!) and I experienced no undue resistance problems with the tires on cinders. The 170-mile (we didn't do it all!) trip now concluded, I see no significant signs of wear and have not lost any appreciable pressure with no puncture events. Selling price was 20% less than quote from bike shop if they would have ordered them.
