Great Tire

The plushness of a tire is largely affected by pressure and in my experience most people over inflate there tires. These tires have a great ride quality for me. I weigh 150 pounds and inflate them to 30 psi based on the gauge on my planet bike flour pump. I've never had a pinch flat and I've hit some deep pot holes going at a good clip.These tires handle mud quite well as well as a smooth ride on pavement. I've had grand bios's Hertre on my bike and to me the Hertre were only slighly cushier. For me its a toss up between the two so I pick these because they are so much cheaper and they look good too.

I just recently installed these on some 650b rims I had and put them on a Motobecane ALU disc cross bike I have replacing a 700 rim with Schwalbe 28mm. Wow, what a difference in ride quality. Sure, they're fatties but I'm comparing them with Soma B line 650bs, a set of Pari-Moto's that were super plush but got punctured on the first ride because they are so shear and Schwalbe Big Bens. I like the overall feel, and think they roll just as fast as the other more expensive tires. I also have a set of the 50s on my Extracycle, and like the way they roll on it. Continental definitely has a winner with this tire

Killer deal

Ordered these the other day as winter is coming and the days on the mountains are getting limited. Got these so as to avoid chewing up my Racing Ralph's on the road. Figured I can get a lot of days between now and Nov. 22nd or so to get the legs ready for some downhill skiing. Put these on my 2013 Jamis Dakar XCT.

For Urban conditions - not an event tire

I used it for about a month and then went back to Grand Bois, much more supple tire, did not get any flats on this one, but thanks to its hard casing, its not a supple ride.

Tradeoffs, if you are looking for a solid tire that gets few flats and is ridden in rough city conditions, this is a good choice.
