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.

Not a single flat in nearly 3,000 miles

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.

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.

Good Price, Good Durability, Good Traction, But Call Uber When You Flat

Please note Value rating will be based on what your total UberLyft tab is or how many tire levers you break.

This review is limited to the 700x x 28mm tire. Also note that these 28s are skinny.

Leave German engineering to third world manufacturing and you're bound to get off-spec tolerances.

The tire performs well for the money (in terms of durability, puncture resistance, traction in varying road surface and weather conditions, etc), but after you've mounted it, or pulled it off the rim, you may find that all your levers are busted, or your hands, most particularly, your thumbs, are aching andor inoperable. If not, then your new tube has been punctured by the lever...

While mounting it, I MADE CERTAIN to add a tire liner to help prevent the above cenario, and it's been pretty good (WITH LINER) , only one flat in 18 months of riding an average of 3-4 times a week on this bike. However, this is not a good indication of the tire's puncture resistance. Most importantly, DO NOT GET A FLAT and make sure your Uber or Lyft account is active when riding! You will not be able to do the fix out in the field. I recently acquired a special tool (15 bucks and added weight) that helps quite a bit with mounting. However, I'll have to additionally, figure that into the overall cost.

Moral of the story If you already use Uber or Lyft when you flat, and subsequently take the wheel to the LBS for repair, go for it. If not, steer very clear...

Interestingly, I just swapped them for a pair of Travel Contact Reflex 37s (also thinner than 37) and they were easy as pie! Again, it's all about tolerances!

I've been spinning these conti tires for over three seasons now. I value them because I have their rubber side down on the wheel of my road bike along exhilaratingly winding and rolling bucolic countryside roads, some unknown, including dirt roads and trails year-round in four full and effervescent seasons.

I first used these tires as they were the only thing that were tour suitable for 27 wheels. (I ride an older Cannondale ST). The tread profile is perfect for mixed surface touring. Sure there is some drag on tarmac, but it's a modest insurance once the roads get rough. I've ridden gravel and hard packed trails for days. I've never had a flat until the tire is showing serious signs of wear. I do find when loaded and at around 65psi get through a rear tire pretty quickly. Nevertheless, for value on 27 rims there is no equal. 700 wheels have plenty more choices, but I'd still have them on my shortlist. They are also my city commuter of choice.

People will complain about everything. Yes, they are heavier than a road bike tire because they are thicker. That's how weight works. If you're not doing a time trial it isn't going to make a difference. It's a great puncture resistance tire with good grip for city riding. Price is very reasonable.

Bought my daughter a road bike and she felt very unsure of herself on the previous tires. The wider tire with the tread gave her a more confident ride which in turn has made her ride more. Plus these tires are holding up real well. Light gravel, trail, road and some sidewalk riding is mainly what she rides and these tires are great in most conditions. I wouldn't say snow or ice is why I went with most.
