Love This tire!
rating

These tires are exactly what I was looking for a smooth, quiet ride with low rolling resistance, and they can handle most non-asphalt trails with good results. Great tire.

Fast rolling on street and trail, 2.1

I ride a combination of street and hard pack trail every day, 7-10 miles, and wanted to switch out my ancient knobbies for something more streetworthy, something faster and that wouldn't peel out from under me when leaning into a corner on asphalt. I'm thrilled with the performance of these tires! I can tell I'm hitting much higher speeds on both street and trail. The grip is amazing on asphalt, old or new, just what I was hoping for, and pretty much the same on trails too. The only shortcomings I've found so far are when I get into a sandy spot on the trail they don't float as much as my old tires did, and on really loose pack up a hill the rear tire doesn't grip as well as a knobby with a less pronounced center ridge.. but these are small things considering the all around great performance they do on everything else. They do feel a little heavy, but make up for it with the super low rolling resistance. I'm really happy I chose these and would recommend them to anyone who rides trails yet wants to get some great street performance out if their mountain bike.

I ride an older (non suspension type) Mountain bike on mixed surfaces, sand on concrete, railroad dirt beds, asphalt & concrete bicycle path , mostly in North County San Diego, coastal. The tires have excellent grip on all these surfaces & the ride seems smoother than my previous OEM tires.

There is a little tire noise, due to the tread design, but it is very minor noise.

A Solid tire for city riding and light trail use

Continental tires are consistently solid and reliable. They might weigh a little more than others, but you will have little worry about getting a flat. They are also long lasting. These tires have performed very well for city riding and light trail riding on my mountain bike that I converted for more urban riding.

I have used the 2.1 in Maine and the 1.9 in N.C. They work very well on fire trails, gravel, sand and are VERY quiet and smooth on pavement. They wear very well. I love them. Harry

I use both size tires on a mountain bike in Maine (on fire trails with rocks, sand, and dirt) and in North Carolina on sand and hard packed dirt. They work quite well. I also use them on pavement and they are SUPER smooth and quiet. I got my first set in Chapel Hill, NC on close out. I had a hard time finding the original traffic tread pattern and was happy to spend much more on later sets.

Great tire but way too tight fit on a Mavic wheel
rating
by Biker Jeff

2 of 2 customers found this review helpful.

Ordered this tire based on tread photos and reviews to replace a nearly slick Worm Drive that I use as a front tire for double trackback road riding. Fit is so tight on my Mavic Cross Trail front wheel that I sprained my thumb mounting it, am concerned that I might not be able to get it off of the rim in the field should I have a puncture. It will most likely wind up on one of my spare bikes that we keep around for guests and family members to ride around the ranch area.

I ride about ten miles everyday for exercise. This tire is perfect for my route, which is about 75/25 road to dirt. It rolls well on pavement and still has enough grip for single track.

I haven't owned these tires for very long nor had many rides on them, but I love them so far. Nice and hard compound, combined with good tread pattern makes for ideal biking on asphalt, hard pack gravel or other firm ground. Low rolling resistance is noticeable. Hopefully the longevity will be worth it in the end.

I switched out a traditional 2.5 MTB tire for this hybrid tire and have been very pleased with it so far. I use my mountain bike on desert trails, granite canal banks and some pavement. This is the perfect tire to bridge the gap between a traditional trail tire and a commuter tire. It roles well on pavement and is still grippy on the trails. The tire was easy to mount and stays put when braking hard. I'm very pleased with this tire.

I wanted to try commuting to work with my Bike, but wanted to do so without having to buy a more road worthy bike than my trail hard tail. Found this tire to be fairly fast rolling and responsive, as well as durable. Good value and much better road manners than the alternative of leaving my Kenda Nevagal's on the bike. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to commute with their bike, but still wants to hit hard pack trail on the weekend.
