easy rolling and long lasting

I have over 2,000 miles on them and I'm still using them on my tour of the Upper peninsula. Having caused no problems I rarely give them a second thought; that is until Bike Direct asked me to review their project. You can't go wrong with Continentals.

I Love Them

I really like these tires. I mainly ride on the street, but when I need to cross over a different type of surface like railroad tracks or gravel, these keep me glued. With some other tires I've had, I'd always feel a little slippage, but these are solid. Work great in the rain without compromising speed. (Heads up I bike for exercise and to run errands around town, not competitively so I can't speak to that). Will probably purchase them again next season depending on the wear. Definitely recommend!

Good sturdy tires

I ride on crappy surfaces, road shoulders, gravel, dirt, etc and these tires can hold up to the occasional off road conditions.

great tires

I bought these to put on my vintage road bike - wanted something affordable that could handle city streets full of potholes and rough pavement. These tires have been great so far, I'm really happy with them, especially for the price.

Great economy tire for rougher surfaces.

I needed to replace the tires on my road bike for city commuting and occasional trail riding (gravel roads or other somewhat rough surfaces). I found these and they seemed to fit the bill. Reasonably priced, easy install (tight over the rim at first, but that is normal). I rode them briefly on our rail trail which is compacted fine gravel with occasional sections of larger gravel. Nice tread, thicker that a normal road tire, they worked really well. Just what I wanted!

Great affordable tire

I bought these tires to revive a road bike that will be ridden in a city and on occasional gravel trails. I read a review that mentioned how tight a fit it has but I didnt struggle mounting them. I have always found that the first time on a rim is a little bit of work. I road tested them on a nearby trail I have ridden the bike on with smooth road tires and found an immediate improvement. They are a little heavier with the extra layer to help with flat prevention but I like them a lot. Note that they are directional and marked for rotation. Also lower pressure than typical road tires.

The best overall tire you can buy for a 27 road bike

Great tires for the price. Wanted to get back into riding a road bike, but did not like the thought of slick road tires from my youth that would come out from underneath you in a turn on wet pavement. Wanted something with a little meat on them, but not a full cyclocross tire, so I could have a comfortable road ride. Have been very pleased with these tires that I bought for my old 27 on road rides, and the trail rides on packed chat to loose gravel. These tires allow you to ride places that you could not with normal road tires. Tires are well constructed, and of high quality. I would recommend these to anyone. They have a nice road bead, and tread on the sides to take turns and not have the wheels slide out from underneath you. The tred gives you a nice ride on packed chat and gravel, and Ive done some slight off road on trails.

Still pretty fast...

May not be as fast as a racing slick, but it's still quick. The tread adds a nice grip in the rain and dirt, but it's not a full on gravel tire. Easy to install, and they're pretty durable and flat resistant.

Hooked rimmed tires on straight rims.

This tire is intended for hooked rims which I did not know upon ordering. I have an old Univega with straight rims, and i have been riding on these tires for months without a problem, despite the warning on the tires themselves. These are a lifesaver compared to the vintage tires I replaced.

Good Tire

Good tire and great price. I bought these along with Kenda thorn resistant tube. so far so good, no flat during my daily commute around the streets of NY with glass all over the place. I got 2 of these cheaper than what they would have cost me at my local bike shop even with the cost of shipping.

wouldn't hesitate to take these out for x-country tour on my old '77 mercian!

in 77 I built up a mercian for everydaytour - built the campy hubweinmann rimdt spoked wheels on a 27' platform. why? because back then, if you had to, you could get 27 tires everywhere - even in rural general stores. today the pickings are getting slim. if you live in a retirement center or gated community - the kenda tires will work. if you ride out on back roads where there may be a lot of debris - go with something a bit tougher - if you don't want to walk!! it would be a toss up between these and the Schwalbe tires - both are at the top of the field of what is available these days.

Good Quality Tire

Good quality tire. The tire tread is really good for gripping and it appears to be of good quality. It was a little difficult to get on wheel. However, I recommend the tire. I bought Kenda 27 tubes with this 27x1 14 tire and was very disappointed with the tubes. One of the Kenda tubes would not hold air upon installation and they are also more like 28 or larger tubes. They are larger than advertised. The Continental Ride Tour tire is really good. However, stay away from Kenda products. I would rate the Kenda tube a 0 from a scale of 1 to 5 stars. I did a 1 star review of the Kenda tubes and it never showed up in the reviews. Wonder why!

Decent, but Narrow

So far the only issue I've found is that you feel the center strip catch a bit if you bump over a road groove. They corner fine, & give a good ride feel overall. They're a bit more narrow then I'd hoped, but about what I expected. They measure at 30mm on a fairly wide rim. If there's been a 27 x 1 3/8 in this I'd have gone with that.

Real grip

I commute all year around on my bike and I got these tires just in time for the snow. I am very pleasantly surprized by how well these tires handle slippery conditions and they cut through snow very well. Plenty of traction even in this granulated snow we're getting, It compacts to ice in the sun.
