Side walls rip out prematurely

I guess i rode over 1.250 miles and the side walls disintegrated when it still had good tread on them, nevertheless only one flat and tires where good.

Durable & Comfortable

Got these tires as a stock tire on my Novara Safari (2008). I've ridden 3000 miles on them and they've been quiet, comfortable, capable of carrying full-on touring loads (60 pounds) and have only had two flats this whole time. If I wasn't an anti-puncture FREAK I'd get another set. (I hate unloading a touring bike to fix a flat. Its a big pain). They have served me well on pavement and dirt roads and I can't say enough positive about them. They last and they are good tires. I'm really only replaceing them because they are getting old and starting to show side-wall cracks from age. If only they had a more robust anti-puncture layer I'd get another set in a heart-beat. A solid product.

Compelling value in a versstile tire

I needed new rubber for my mountain bike that sees mostly street use. It was a pleasure to be able to afford Conti quality for such a modest price - 20.00 ea on special. The tires arrived promptly, were not difficult to fit and immediately inspired confidence, imparting good feel (traction,ease of pedaling)and a smooth riding experience. I have had no problems with traction or control. What more can I say - perhaps not optimal for those who spend most of their time on the dirt, but a great compromise for the rest of us

Fast tire but scary on ice or wet

These tire roll fast and are very quiet but watch out on icy roads, on leaves, a thin layer of dirt or in the wet. I commute on them but they have almost no traction when it is raining on the three wooden unpainted bridges that I have to cross each way. I have fallen when the wheels slip out from under me even when going under 5 MPH to make the bridges' 90-degree corners. Scary!

Great urban tire

I used these tires for street work for 10 years as a bike cop. Not light but pretty tough and good flat resistance. Enough tread to do mud without sliding all over the place. Roadies will not like the weight but for an urban tire, riding the gutters, side walks or wherever you have to ride, these are my choice. ( the ones I used were the gumwall)

Good tire for me

As I said, a good tire as I ride on dirt hard pack trails and transition to the street.

Very Good Tire For Intended Purpose

I have had the 2.1 wide version for about 4 years and probably 300 leisurely miles. Most were on city streets with occasional forays onto dirt trails. With no sporting pretense, these are cushy and I think perfect for the way I ride.

On hard surfaces, the tire presents continuous road contact. Ride is quiet with apparently low rolling resistance. When ground is soft, the reverse knobby thread sinks in a bit and provides pretty good traction. Thread is hardly worn and should be good for at least another 300. I've not had a flat yet.

Some years ago I took a spill on smooth ground with a mono-layer of probably 3mm gravel (like ball bearings). I chose these tires with the thought of not repeating the same again with smooth road tires. The thread pattern should allow firm ground contact without the constant noise of normal knobbies. I've had good luck so far.

Super product. These tires allowed my wife to keep riding, good grip long wear!

Changed tires on my wife's bike to allow less resistance as compared to her maxxis igniters. Shes so impressed I may put them on my mtn bike. I'd definitely purchase them again. Thanks

Great tire for gravel roads, some dirt, but really shine on pavement.

I'm a roadie and still put over 500 miles a year on my old hardtail mountain bike. In the Spring, Maine roads can be brutal for a road bike, so I normally start the riding season on my mountain bike. I switched from a knobby to the Conti Town and Country (2.1) about 5 years ago and glad I did. They are perfect for any pavement and gravel trail. OK for sandy conditions. Smooth and very comfortable. Obviously, not for steep mountain trails. Durability is insane and no flats to top it off. Not sure if one could tell, but I really enjoy these tires.

Good tire for commuting on city streets.

This is a kevlar bead tire that works great for commuting on city streets with good traction but slick enough to move fast!

Many, Many Miles

Purchased two sets for two differnt bikes. Faster than an dirt tire but was looking for something with a bit less rolling resistance. I have had these tires for years and have well over 2000 miles (all road) on them. Although I think there are a few miles left on them I a switching to a 26x1.3 tire with an 80 psi rating (slick). I would buy these again if I wanted a tire that would last...and last....and last.

We call 'em 'Cop Tires' - They're quiet, fast and sticky... I love 'em.

They used to be gum-wall in the photo now they're black, and the sidewalls would rot out from air pollution, or whatever LONG before I could wear the tread out... NEVER got a puncture - they actually reject stuff like broken glass so forcefully to the side that it's alarming. On the fat side for sure, yet rolling resistance is nil you'll be coasting on these long after the knobbly guys are peddling their legs off, and they are effectively silent no more deafening 'pick-up truck' racket. Can't imagine a better city tire for a MTB, and they go well enough off road for occasional excursions - an excellent trade-off in my book. I'll never buy anything else as long as they keep making these, and will forever go out of my way if need be to find them.

Long Haul

I've been running the 26x2.1 tires on my cargo bike all summer and have been very happy with them. I like the larger air volume and smoother tread on this tire and have not had a flat yet either.

Not so fast

These would be great street ties except for the fact that the side walls rip out after about 600 miles
