This 650b x 1.6 Continental Contact Plus Tire is an all-rounder tire designed for long days in the saddle over roads, paths, or trails. Featuring extra puncture protection and Continental's most popular tread design, this touring tire ensures that whether the day calls for an ordinary commute, or an extra-ordinary trek to the next rest area, the wheels will keep on turning.
Featuring an advanced, updated version of Continental's SafetySystem Breaker, the addition of a highly elastic material resulted in a tire that not only provides outstanding puncture and cut resistance, but also lowers rolling resistance. On e-Bikes, this means conserving battery life, on other bikes it means saving leg strength for longer days in the saddle. Additionally, this tire meets the needs of high-speed e-Bikes, capable of speeds of up to 50 km/h

When these tires arrived at my door the first thing I noticed is they're heavy. When I mounted them on my fendered Rivendell Saluki I noticed they were bigger than I thought. I had to adjust my fenders. I think they're more like 44's than 42's. They mounted relatively easy. I pumped them up to 25psi not the max rating of 65. I weigh 140 so I don't need them filled up more than that. They ride really nice at that pressure and they corner great. I absolutely love the feel of these tires, I can ride all day. I don't care that they're heavy. I like knowing I will have few if any flats with them. I hope that helps
Ridden them on dail commute for 500 miles, zero flats, rolls smooth, good traction.
Cons feel heavy and slow.
Guess I would rather be a little slower than have to stop for a flat in winter
