These are great tires
rating
by Bill

These tires have a low rolling resistant, which is comparable or better than some very spendy tires. I have a twenty year old set of the same tires on my old bike, they are not cracked and still work fine. The cost and performance make this an excellent tire

I bought these tires to complete a Mavic wheelset, & have become a worshiper at the Continental Altar. These

tires & tubes are great, the grip is massive & I even have a little more confidence when riding in the rain. I love Contis so much I've begun stocking up on tubes & tires at bargain prices. Looking forward to using wider tires & a Gatorskin over the winter.

I think the other reviewers have summed up my feelings pretty well. Writing this just to add yet another confirming witness that this is a decent all-around tire. It's definitely not as fast as a GP4k but then, it shouldn't be at the price you pay for these and furthermore, I want more durability in a tire I plan to beat up every day. That said, they are NOT slow. They roll best in their first 400mi of use and as my back tire has gotten more worn, it doesn't feel quite as lively. Still a good fast tire though. Stands up well to my trainer which munches tires pretty well. Not sure about other folks but mine were a tight fit on both Mavic wheelsets that I have. Can't beat the price- will definitely order more.

I ordered two sets of these tires and put one set on my Pinarello and one on my Lynskey. I've only put in one ride on each bike...but the tires felt great. One ride was a hill ride and the other was pure speed. I like these tires. I'll see how they hold up after a few 100 miles...but thus far...excellent. I would definitely recommend these tires. In fact, I'm ordering a set for my EVO.

700x25- replaced yksions that came with my kysrium elites. About 100mi so far on urban roads i ride at lunch. Despite price tag of the yksions i am very impressed. Seem easily as fast. Puncture resistance is always subjective but so far no nicks or cuts. Ride is smooth, gp4k-like. If i had no time to switch out tires or wheels, i wouldn't feel like i was making a major compromise competing on these. No wet weather experience but dry grip is good- smooth transition off the center tread into corners entices you to push in further. Better than the yksions. Mounting? Well they are a very tight fit.

I have been riding and racing for 4 decades. I have used nearly every model of every major brand of tire. Clinchers and tubulars. Contis roll and wear the best. This tire is by far the best bang for the buck for everyday use. 180tpi for 20 something dollars. No brainer. For all out racing go for the Contis high end tires.

Purchased 4 Continental Ultra Sport II (Folding) Nov 2015, 2 have split along the bead. Two are on the bike now, waiting to see if they will last. Calling exchange or refund, hope this is just a bad batch. The wire bead tire would last a year or more, tried to upgrade at the new low price.

I'm a fairly serious cyclist and a triathlete. I bought a set of these for training tires on my tri bike. I've been riding Conti Grand Prix's on my road bikes and thought I might try a cheaper tire for lots of training miles. The tires ride great. They are incredibly durable (no visible wear in 500 miles, I may need to cut off the little nibs because I can't seem to wear them off). They roll remarkably easy. For the price they are pretty incredible.

However, that incredibly hard wearing rubber doesn't inspire the same confidence that the Grand Prix's do. I haven't really had any trouble, but I don't want to push them into the corners. Probably a great tire for riders who put in lots of training miles. I'll go ahead and pay the extra for the Grand Prix's.

so these tires grip well, wear well, which is the only reason they don't get a worse review, however... they are stiff as a board to get on and off the rim. Changing a tube if you get a flat is such a pain. My new Gator Hardshell tires are so much easier to get on and off. I know this because I mounted one with the rotation direction going the wrong way, and it only took me a few more minutes to switch it back.

Just purchased the 25's and so far so good. The Ultra Sport II are ridiculously inexpensive for the quality of the tire. I had some concern for the speed of the tire as they are a little heavier, but no problem, plus they handle well. Not as sticky as 4000's, but secure through hard turns. Too early to speak about durability at only 200 miles, although I've never had flatting problems with any Continental tire at any price point.

I purchased the tires for my training bike and have put around 500 miles on them so far. I've used Continental tires in the past so I decided to try this less expensive version. The tires roll well,are confidence inspiring in the corners, and give a good feel of the road. They have been rock solid so far and I've not had a single flat.

I bought four of these because of the price and my experience with Continental tires (5000km of touring on TravelContact and TourRide tires without a flat), but I was a bit disappointed - I've had a few flats, and some of the tires have worn through to the threads after less than 1000km (600 miles). I do have to ride on some pretty rough roads, but I was hoping they'd last a bit longer. And no, I don't skid, I'm not Peter Sagan...
