The 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

Excellent Ride!

I researched these tires and decided to replace the stock tires on my Schwinn Kempo with these. Much better ride! Good control and haven't had any issues with punctures. Over 1500 miles on the tires. Liked the performance so much I changed out the stock tires on my Specialized Sirrus with this brand as well. Have over 1600 miles on these tires with no issues. My average speed increased by over 1MPH on each bike after installing theses tires.

Smooth Riding Tire

A few years ago my wife got a Trek Hybrid bike with 700 x 28 road tires and she does not like riding on the road so we find ourselves riding in the neighborhoods around us and smooth trails so she needed a more all-around tire (700 x 37) which this has turned out to be perfect for.

As soon as she got on the bike she said it rolled better and felt smoother than original tires and feels more confident seeing the slightly wider tire under her when on smooth trails like we have along the canal.

Not easy to get on the rim but it fits the frame with no rubbing.

First set-initial impressions

Got a pair of these in 37-622 to replace some old 38-622 Bontragers on my wife's townie. Been around long enough to know Continentals tend to run a bit wider than marked, but these were several mm's bigger than the 38's they replaced. Had to adjust the fenders to get rid of some rubbing. The clearance at the chainstay bridge is tighter than I like, but there's enough space that I'm not compelled to swap these tires out for something smaller.

I've had good luck with Conti's and expect these to ride well and last. The improved puncture protection over the old tires will serve my wife's riding style well. Other than the larger than expected width and that they're a bit on the heavy side, these look like they'll get the job done.

Second set and loving them.

I purchased my first set of Continental Contact Plus tires a couple of months ago and they were amazing. I am a commuter and ran over something on my way out. I never saw what it was, but heard it hit my rear rack as it was thrown. It cut across the tread but only went deep enough to puncture the tube. I placed a tube patch on the inside of the tire and changed the tube. I was able to make it to work and home a few trips until the new tires arrived. I am a high milage rider. I hope they will last as well as they take punishment. They also handle well in rain. Just look out for wet metal.

P.S. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because there is always room for improvement.

Love this tire!

Great grip with low roll resistance. I switched to the Continental Contact from a comparable Michelin touring tire. I put over 5000 on the Michelin tires and anticipate higher mileage on the Continental tires. The advantage of the Continental is that it has less roll resistance, making it a much faster tire for my rides. My rides are a mixture of paved road surfaces, golf course kart trails and wide community sidewalks. Excellent commute tire that would be equally suitable to gravel and hardpan dirt trails.

Excellent tire for urban and trail riding 29er

My Trek X-Caliber 29er never had the same agility (tight turning radius, low center of gravity) as my old school 26 Trek 950 so I found that instead of tight single track, it ended up mostly being ridden on hard packed trails and gravel (Powell Butte, Forest Park) and on urban rides when I wanted something tougher than my carbon road bike. The stock knobby tires worked fine on the trails, but they were slow and wore quickly on pavement.

Enter the Continental Contact Plus This tire is plenty beefy (targeted at heavier eBikes) and has just enough tread to work fine on trails and gravel yet it is slick enough to roll nicely when cycling through parks and neighborhoods on the way to the trails. At 500 miles, I'm sold.

Better than stock tires

Got a great deal on these tires from BTD. Theres not much else to say other than the tires feel like they will stand up to unnerving city streets.

Meets the need

I will sum up my review with the adjective "Meh."

This tire doesn't inspire me but, like a Toyota Corolla, it does get me there and back. Be ready to put more effort into getting these things up to speed but once there ya good! Puncture problems seem like a thing of the past. Keep em hard though, you're already getting a better workout at 55psi than others.

Excellent upgrade to a brand new Ebike

These are perfect for an E-bike. My wife's new $2k Liv (Giant) E-bike came with some strange tires for the application - the standard tires were blocky tread with rather square shoulders. Not at all what you would want for a city bike application and not very good looking either. My bike dealer agreed and said he would swap out. I picked these Continental's and they are really nice. With the reflective strip side wall they not only look outstanding but ride nicer and quieter than the OE tires. They are not light weight, but perfect for the heavy and fast E-bike.

Continental has a winner!

Replaced the Giant Crosscuts that came stock on my Roam 2 with these in 42mm width (from the 37mm that were on). On my normal route the first thing I noticed was my average speed went up 1 mph. Handling is excellent on pavement, and great on the crushed limestone trails.Rolling resistance is obviously less. Reflective strip on sidewall a plus. Highly recommend.And relatively inexpensive.

Good for Commutes

I used these tires commuting on the road and riding technical trails on my way home riding cyclocross. They're really fast on the pavement and great on hard packed dirt roads. I really would like some extra traction on rock sections, but another tire is good for that. These tires were perfect when I was riding the gravelpavement pathway on my way to class, great on the road, and alright on technical trails

Like these tires

Bought these to go from 32's to 35's on my touring bike. I only have a few hundred miles on them now, but leaving next week for a thru-ride of the Katy Trail. They look good and mounted easily to my rims and I like tyhe ride. Also got them at a good price from Bike Tires Direct.

I like good tires that are fast & grippy, all weather conditions or even light off-road

Just daily riding on a custom built 29700c urban transport or century mileage, and through in some dirt tails amazingly work well in all conditions .

Great E-bike tire, rolls fast. OEM's had 3 flats in a week. These replaced them working great

Got a new Vado E-bike and OEM tires had 3 flats in a week. Ride mostly road and gravel. They had week sidewalls. These tires have enough tread and sidewall strength for how I use my bikes, though I have not tried and lite single track. I think they will work fine. E-bikes are great fun and these tires really help.

Good tire so far

I bought these to replace the gravel studded tires on my hybrid. I've ridden several hundred miles on the studded tires in the last 2 years and felt it was time to get something with lower rolling resistance.

I do enjoy how quiet these tires are on the road as opposed to the studded tires and they make the bike feel smoother in the road. These tires also run great in hard pack gravel which I do ride on a lot. No traction loss at all but I wouldn't try to push them like a mountain bike tire.

I recommend these tires.

Top notch

Had these on my new flatbar road bike for over 45 days and they havent lost any perceptible pressure. That never happens.

White reflective stripe looks good as it breaks up the black rim from the mostly black sidewalk. A nice feature.
