Heavy Duty Puncture Protection That Won't Slow You Down

The Continental Contact Plus 700c Tire is a heavy-duty all-rounder and E-bike 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 and E-bike tire ensures that no matter where your ride takes you, your 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

Features:

  • 700c wirebead clincher tire
  • Heavy duty urban and E-bike tread
  • SafetySystem Breaker puncture protection
  • Reflective sidewall detailing
  • Low rolling resistance
  • Available in 28mm-47mm width options
  • 60 TPI

    I'm the test monkey on this!!!!

    Well I have 2 e-bikes one with 5500 miles, the other with 6000 miles. I use 622-47cont.-contact-plus tires, I've had one flat in 11500 miles, some how the nail went in the sidewall. I put a new tube on, then continued on my way (CO2). My opinion is you can't find a better tire than these ANYWHERE. At 5000 miles the rear tire will start balding, but the front will be like new, just swap them, and your good for another 5000. My opinion again is 13000 miles for a pair of these tires is feasible. Best dam tires I've ever had, 63YO-FloridaBoy WestCoast.

    lightweight alternative to some other e-bike tires

    Wanted to drop some weight off my e-bike tires to improve mileage and battery life during the summer. Also need a sturdy tire with all the road hazards in the city. Still to early to tell but is holding up well (no flats or cuts) with slight improvement in lower effort and spin up. Lost about 1/3 the weight of previous tire going to a 37c from the previous 38c it replaced. to note, my e-bike is front shocks and pivot suspension seat post. Being a long time road bike rider the contact plus tires feel more performance oriented, more like being on a regular road bike which I like.

    Good tire for the urban commute.

    Needed some tires to withstand the punishments of the urban landscape. Let's face it. Most metropolitan

    streets leave much to be desired. The most glaring being lack of bicycle infrastructure. With streets in disrepair and lack of safe corridors for bicyclists, it's important to have tires that can hold up to the wear and tear. My commute is on an electric bicycle going 12 miles to and from work, 5 days a week. These tires currently have over 600 miles on them so far and will probably last well over 8000. I've had Continental Contact Plus tires (700 x 38C) previously. They took the hits from cracked asphalt, glass, road debris, etc. without puncturing or having the sidewall fail early. The current set is 700 x 32C. I get a little more speed from the narrower version but still have the inherent tire protection. Another good brand for urban commuting is the Vittoria Randonneur Classic. A real tough tire but real difficult to seat in the rim with conventional tire levers. I would recommend the Kool Stop Tire Jack. Makes installing tight fitting tires a breeze. Definitely consider the Continental Contact Plus for urban. Also holds up well on fire roads but doesn't have the best tread for traction.

    Great tire, just don't carry wimpy tire tools

    A tough tire, and excellent tread design for varied surfaces. I would love this tire except it is astonishingly hard to get on and off, even in my shop. I've run a lot of brands, have a good array of quality tire tools, and nothing comes close to the difficulty level of this tire. I dread the though of having to change this tire on the road, especially in cold weather. But otherwise, it's great. If you have lots of experience changing tires and really strong hands, go for it!

    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.

    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.

    Competent city tire

    Bought these to replace 10 year old tires that came with a Scott hybrid. They feel very secure and inspire confidence even in the rain in my dally commute of 3 miles each way. My bike has a basket in the rear which sometimes carries up to 10 pounds. They feel like they should hold up well for many miles.

    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.

    Excellent tire!

    This is a great tire! Continental is quality. Great grip, sticks in corners, rolls fast and looks great. Also I feel confident cornering in the rain too on these rubbers. Can't go wrong on Continentals my friend :) oh yah, the price is right too! Especially considering the mileage & peace of mind you can get out these tires with their puncture protection and top quality construction. Will buy again. Go ride!

    Robust tire, though stiff sidewalls and heavy

    Need to run really low pressure to achieve softer ride. Using 47mm size on front and running 30 psi achieves both great flat resistance and smooth ride.

    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.
