Dirty Kanza 100 Tire

I am a 53 year old recreational rider, who primarily rides paved bike trails with a Giant Roam with disc brakes. Last year my cousin and I decided we would challenge ourselves to ride the Dirty Kanza 100, a 100 mile gravel grinder in the Flint Hills near Emporia, Kansas. I researched gravel grinding and what we would need to do to prepare for the ride. Tires became a significant concern tube verses tubeless, what tread pattern, and I didn't want to spend a fortune on tires. After much research I settled on a set of Continental Tour Ride Tires with Kenda tubes and Continental sealant. Taking advantages of sales, I was all in for less than $50.

When I initially installed the tires and began riding on local trails, I immediate felt a difference. The Continentals rolled much easier than my original factory tires. In April we rode the Cool Hand Luke, a 50 mile gravel grind in Leavenworth, Kansas. Conditions were dry, but the roads had lots of fresh, loose gravel and the fills were very steep. I experienced no flats or traction problems. Yesterday, June 3, 2017, I completed the Dirty Kanza 100!! Conditions were great Temperatures in the 70's, cloudy, mild breezes in the afternoon, a little humid, and brief sprinkles in the afternoon. In Kansas it doesn't get much better in June. The Continental Tour Ride tires performed excellently, no flats, no traction issues.

If you're looking for an economical gravel tire, the Continental Tour Ride proved to be an excellent option for me.

The tires are good on the enola low grade ,rails to trails,the gravel could be thick in spots.more suited for mountain mointain bikes,although the tires on the hybrid are enspiring.And corner at speed on the street,nice neighborhood trecks.The tread patern is self cleaning and does not throw allot od debree.steep decents on a trail were Predictable.I have not had them in snow,but i expect good maners.a little heavy fo racing.

I put a set of these on before taking on a personal 1,000 miles in one month challenge, last year. They have survived completely unscathed and worked well in the wet, rainy Portland winter. I have previously used Schwalbe Marathons and they are comparable, except for lacking a reflective stripe on the sidewall. Currently our roads and bike lanes are lousy with broken glass. I'm not foolhardy, I don't deliberately ride over that stuff, but I haven't had a single flat in approximately 3,000 miles of commuting and recreational rides. I keep looking at lighter, more expensive tires, but why mess with something that's already working great?

I switched from a skinny racing tire to this tire to commute to work. I liked that it has some traction but still comes in a smaller size (28) than the other commuter tires. So far it has been a great tire. I do not ride off road, but there is a lot of road debris in parts of my commute and it handles well. Overall very happy with this tire and would definitely buy again for commuting.

Rolling the 700x47s. Had them on my commutehybrid. Super comfortable, no need to pick the best line down a bad street, just ride on. They are slow, as others have noted, but for shorter commutes, sketchy roads, light gravel, dirt, snow, rain, and short cuts through lawns and construction zones, they're a bargain buy. Plus they look awesome (the big 47's at least, that's 29'x1.75 size). They can be tough to mount, as others have said, but in my experience, most Conti's do fit tight on most rims. If you're looking for a nice, stable, stylish, and economic tire for short rides across multiple terrains, and in varying conditions, you're not going to go wrong here.

Not a super technical guy, but I can tell you what I like about the tire.

Compared to Marathons, for example, this tire is really smooth. It is a softer rubber... maybe more supple is the word. Tires seem to be wearing great. I have at least 1500 miles on them with very little wear and tear. I ride all sorts of dirt, fire roads, bike paths, asphalt, concrete, Lake Hodges (San Diego) dirt and cactus. These tires GRIP really well. The supple rubber provides superior grip to my other gravel bike with the harder rubber of the Marathons. The supple rubber seems to really absorb the bumps better as well.

Third point is the price! That price for a set of 2 tires 700 x 42? Unmatched. I expected lower quality due to price, but I am very happy with the ride, the bump absorption, the amazing grip on ALL surfaces, the traction on the dirt and dirt hills, both up and down, I have a hard time finding a con.

After regularly flatting on my previous tires, which included several CST, Bontrager and Kenda tires, I decided to buy a set of Conti's after hearing how some road cyclists swear by the Conti Gatorskin. At the time, I was rather skeptical given they were only [$] a piece. Now, after 500 miles, any doubts I had were gone. So far, these tires have covered 500 miles on MN roads and bike paths. My daily commute covers sections of road where there are numerous cracks and small rocks that made riding a flat-fest. I have yet to flat with the Tour Ride. The lower inflation pressure also gives a much better ride than any previous tire I used, and the aggressive tread pattern performs better than expected on dirt. I can't wait to see how they do in snow.

These tires are not the fastest, but they are not so slow that you think you're riding on a flat. For my commute and weekend trail rides, these tires are great. And at [$] a piece, a definite steal.

Not a bad choice for riding in wet and muddy conditions where grip is very important. They weight more than a normal Gatorskin but they offer me the grip I need to go though 2 inches layers of mud and thats reassuring.

I am a 68 year old retiree and am not slender (200 pounds). My Strava is at 3300 miles since I got a new bike in late February 2018 mostly on Arizona canal paths. These tires are incredibly hard to mount. It's a worry that the tube is going to get pinched when mounting. I inflate to 70 psi. The rear tire feel squishy. I have gone through several tubes. At 100-200 miles of use, the rear tube starts leaking. It took a couple of tries to find a good fitting tube. Most were too large. The same tire on the front have been great. It has rolled 1,000 miles with no problems. I will replace the rear and keep this one for a front spare.
