Commute year-round with the Top Contact Winter II. Continental has updated their hearty design incorporating all-weather tread technology perfected in their automotive tires.

Even at a glance, it's easy to spot the differences between the Winter II and the standard Top Contact tire. Though they share the same water channeling grooves, the Winter II tread uses hundreds of biting edges, which help it conform to practically any surface. The result is a tire that handles reliably in wet, or even slightly icy road conditions, without slowing you down on dry pavement.

The tread compound has also been optimized to improve grip and handling in cold conditions, while the Poly X Breaker protection barrier prevents punctures without impeding rolling resistance or adding too much weight. DuraSkin sidewalls provide additional cut protection. Supple three ply, 180 TPI casing is reserved for Conti's highest quality tires for an excellent ride quality and extended durability.

The Top Contact Winter II is available in Black with a reflective side wall stripe. 700c x 37mm (37-622 ISO) and 700c x 42mm (42-622 ISO). Maximum pressure: 85 PSI. Recommended pressure: 58 PSI. Wire bead. Handmade in Germany. Claimed weight 580/680g.

ISO (ETRTO) Size: 37-622 ISO

ISO (ETRTO) Size: 42-622 ISO

Rec Pressure: 58 PSI

Great all around tire!

Bought a set of these a few years ago to use on my 29er for commuting. Rain, snow, icy patches, dry pavement, dirt, you name it, it works. In sandy terrain the tire sipes will tend to pick up a lot of the fines but washing them off with a good stiff brush every so often takes care of that. Now have them mounted on a spare set of wheels for my cross bike. Very durable as well considering it is supposedly a softer compound rubber. Would definitely buy again.

Good price, sticky tire

Glad I found this and didn't waste my money on studded tires. This tire is relatively fast for a winter tire, and still has great traction.

no falls last winter

Road in winter for the last two years in KY. There is more ice than snow. the first winter i fell 3 times and cracked a rib. last winter i bought these after my first fall and didn't go down again. the warmer it gets the stickier they get so i would wait to put them on till the highs are consistently under 60 degrees. i will buy these again.

Great confident winter tire

I purchased the 42mm tire - they mounted up around 38-39mm as expected. I put them on my cross bike with disc brakes for winter training. I still had clearance for the Planet Bike fenders although it was a little tight.

The tread pattern is unlike any bike tire I've owned before - they're are very car tire-like. Tires channeled water and slush very nicely off to the sides of the tire instead of carrying it around and you (and your bike) ending up wearing it. They felt very confident on icy or questionable slick conditions. I didn't get a chance to try in snow deeper than 2 inches, but performed well in an inch or so.

A tad more roll resistance as expected, but smooth rolling - again I had the 42mm. So far tire wear has been good with no flats (only about 400 miles so far)

BTW - I saw reviews that described them as hairy; I concur. They are fuzzy from the tire mold, but they kept the inside of my fenders clean!

No Slips No Flats

Worked well so far. Have ridden in snow and rain for about two months and only slipped on an iced over railroad crossing. No flats either.

Excellent Traction

Use: First Time Used

Conditions: Snow/Ice, Single Digit Temps

Tire Pressure Lowered Tire Pressure but not sure to what PSI

It snowed all day in Denver and I picked up my bike from bike shop late in the evening. I rode the bike home and these tires performed as I expected from previous posts. The road was slick with ice and snow but the tires gripped to the surface, never slipping. I slightly deflated tire pressure as well. Looking forward to my commute to work tomorrow.

Hairy!

These tires have very, very good traction, especially on chip seal. They do tend to pick up little bits of gravel, and probably glass. Even with them on I can keep up with the regular guys with standard road tires, though I'm probably working a bit harder.

Great for Winter Commute

I ride 11 each way, mostly on bike path, but in the winter, melt and freeze on underpasses and slippery wood bridges were handled. I still slowed because I have fallen before with mountain bike tires, but never had a problem. Did ride slow one day in packed ice and didn't have a problem. Easily kept up with traffic at 15-20 mph. Transitions great to dry pavement. Did 63 miles last year to Thanksgiving Dinner at the in-laws. Seem to be wearing well. Mounted on spare wheels on an All-City Macho Man.

typicall continental

Haven't ridden these much yet. Out of the box, the manufacturing seems typical Continental... which is very good. The tread is carefully molded (many, many, many mold vents)to produce a deep tread with lots of sipes. This tread produces outrageous amounts of grip on chip-seal. Also typical Continental, they aren't really 37mm. The mounted 34mm on my rims. (Which formerly had 32 mm gatorskins which were really 30mm)

Very good tire for cold and snow conditions.

These tires were put on my cross bike for winter use.They have excellent cold and snow condition grip. They are just like car snow tires and have a tire compound that allows for maximum grip in cold conditions.

Awesome tire

I live in Minnesota, and these tires have made it possible for me to ride all winter long. They grip well - even on ice and bumpy snow.

Agree, Exceptional all-weather performance for the committed commuter, or the commuter who should be committed.

My daily commute in the great lakes area requires a hairy (bridge freezes before roadway) overpass with high speeds and congestion. Soft rubber with brush-like high contact area makes the ride less dangerous than it looks. Excellent daily transition and consistent performance from ice and snow at 35 PSI, to dry roads at 85 PSI. So far (400 miles) no siginificant wear
