Commute year-round with the Top Contact Winter II. Continental has updated their hearty design for 2011, incorporating all-weather tread technology perfected in their automotive tires.
Even at a glance, it's easy to spot the differences between the Winter II and the standard Top Contact tire. Though they share the same water channeling grooves, the Winter II tread uses hundreds of biting edges, which help it conform to practically any surface. The result is a tire that handles reliably in wet, or even slightly icy road conditions, without slowing you down on dry pavement.
The tread compound has also been optimized to improve grip and handling in cold conditions, while the Poly X Breaker protection barrier prevents punctures without impeding rolling resistance or adding too much weight. DuraSkin sidewalls provide additional cut protection. Supple three ply, 180 TPI casing is reserved for Conti's highest quality tires for an excellent ride quality and extended durability.
Maximum pressure: 58 PSI. Recommended pressure: 45 PSI. Wire bead. 26 x 1.9 Inch (50-559 ISO). Black with Reflective sidewall stripe. Handmade in Germany. 740g.

Great winter commuting tire
Biking back and forth to work in all sorts of conditions. So far, it grips well and rides much smoother than the knobbies it replaced.
