Borrowing from the X-King, the Cross Ride brings a tested tread pattern to 700c wheels.

Offset center lugs aid fast rolling, while side lugs give great cornering grip. The Cross Ride provides everything you would expect from one of Continental's MTB tires, only now for "monster cross", gravel riding, or off road touring. The Cross Ride also sports Continental's ProTection layer to keep your tubes safe and hole free and you riding. Take these beasts to the dirt and let them eat up the miles.

This version of the Cross Ride is available in 700c x 42mm (42-622 ISO). 420 grams. Folding bead. All Black

So far, great tire on road, gras, and mud.

This was the wides tire I could fit on my hybrid bike. I was able to ride some minor off road paths in our area. No problems so far in gras and loose mud. I was worried about taking this tire on the road with such a broad patten, but so far i haven't had any issues.

Good Multi-Surface Tire

Overall, I find the tires work very well for urban dirtgravelpavement and seem to have lasted longer than the Kenda Happy Mediums and IRC Mythos XC tires I had previously. I do however question the advertised claim of puncture resistant. I found these tires to be no more or less puncture resistant than the other two brands. That being said, I will definitely purchase these again.

Great tire for muddy cyclocross racing.

I needed a knobby cyclocross tire for the back half of race season in Minnesota. It's cold, wet and muddy this time of year. This tire is works great at 30-35 PSI. Good grip and sheds the mud.

Great Tire For Snow!

Replaced the Giant S-RX4s that I had on my Norco Indie 1 with these. What a difference! Great for grinding on trails. Also great in light snow, hardpack snow and ice. Dropped the pressure down to 45 to give it a more supple ride and it works great. Overall, a great tire at an affordable price for a folding bead!

Great tires so far but measure smaller than indicated

I ordered these in the 42 mm size, they are probably more like 37 or 38 mm. Other than that, after a couple hundred miles I like them well enough. I was hoping to like them better than the Clement MSO (also 40mm) that they replaced. Can't really say I do, yet.

Excellent all terrain tire on my cyclocross bike

These are working great on gravel roads and dry dirt. No mud here this year... I air them down to 35 in front 45 in back when gravel grinding or off road. Up to 50 when on pavement. Overall a great buy on sale and a good buy when not.

Ok but got flats.

An ok tire. I actually need to put more time on them to fully rate. Mounting these is easy and the ride good. They grip well off road and roll well on road when inflated over 50 pounds. I weigh 240 so tend to keep thinner (less than 2) tires pumped up.

So far I have taken 6 rides and had 3 flats. These occurred both on road and off. Not sure if I had air pressure too low initially during the first two which were off road flats or what, but obviously not a good ratio. I have 3 other sets of Conti tires, 2 Gatorskins and Winter Contact II's, and am very happy with all three. I'll try the Cross rides some more and report back if anything changes.

Great tire for more dirt and less street, center tread could be smaller.

I have these tires on my Surly Travelers Check. I use this bike for committing and also for riding fire roads and single track around the Santa Cruz mountains. These tires work pretty well. The tread up the center could be a smaller, allowing the tire to roll more smoothly along pavement and other smooth surfaces. They are great in wet conditions and also fine in dry.

Solid

Have ridden the tires once for a 36 mile gravel race in steady rain. Roads were sandy, muddy, peanut buttery. Tires cornered well, and no los of traction on climbs. Mine are the 42c version, ridden at 55psi, personal body weight-180lbs.

Great performer!!

I am buying my second set of these tires, great traction, predictable cornering, fast rolling on the pavement, I have ridden on the road 60-70 miles each ride and I am impressed on how fast the Conti Cross Rides roll.... handles great in loose gravel, mud and very predictable. I ride MTB trails which have steep descents/ascents mud, leaves, roots, creeks and the tires perform very well...

I would purchase even if they were [$]...

Best knobby tire I could find in a 700c size!!

My wife has a hybrid that she rides mainly on the trail systems around Boulder Co. She was having trouble going through some of the soft gravel and cornering on the typical hybrid tires. I checked a few local shops to no avail then turned to the interwebs. This is literally the Best tire that I could find for this size! These tires are exactly what we were looking for. They keep the reason you bought a hybrid but give you the control of a knobby mountain bike tire!! And thank you Bike Tires Direct because these tires were literally half the price compared to what I found locally!!

Defective

Both these tires have broken sidewalls. Like the cotton weave broke ore something. They now wobble back and forth. Lasted one cross race. One tire blew off the rim during that race. Weird.

Good tire but much smaller than promised

I bought this tire a few months ago for some mixed roadtrailgravel riding. I purchased this specific tire because it was the largest X-cross tire I could find. The folding bead makes the tire light and easy to install but I was disappointed when I mounted the set on my Velocity Dyad rims (24mm wide!) and measured them out to only 37mm, much smaller than the 42 they're advertised as. Despite this, I took them out and found them to be good for mixed terrain. Grippy enough on pavement and knobby enough to catch on gravel and dirt trails. I don't race so cannot promise their competitive qualities, but they make for good adventure tires.
