The Contact Travel Reflective 700c Tire from Continental is durable and comfortable, designed with a semi-slick tread design that's great for all-terrain endurance and touring. Two protection systems -- Safety System Breaker and Duraskin -- keep this tire inflated and rolling well beyond the lifespan of many other tires thanks to features like an aramid reinforced fabric layer under the tread and a lightweight, cut-resistant sheath. With such durable construction, the Contact Travel is e-bike compatible, too -- recommended for e-bikes of up to 25km/hr.

Best bang for the buck!
I've been using Continental Contact Travels in size 37c (1st set) and 42c (2nd set) on my Soma Saga touring frame with canti rim brakes for nearly 9 years!
Lots of broken glass, stray pieces of road cacti, goathead thorns and rugged broken roads with mixed gravel in southern Arizona, and I've never experienced a flat out on the open road! I now know why these tires have a cult-like following. Will buy more of these from BTD best prices and service!
