Actual Weight of 700c x 28 327 grams.

Measured a brand new Super Sport II foldable on balance beam scale. Actual weight was 327 grams. Expect a little nominal variation, but this quite far from the 280 grams listed on on Bike Tires Direct website - a 47 gram difference per tire.

Very nice ride and very high value, but exceptionally tight bead. So tight that there simply was not enough room to tuck my inner tube out of the way of being pinched at the end of the mount, which MUST be done with tire irons. I'm using pretty expensive latex tubes, so it felt risky. Very thankful I didn't rip the tube. A roadside tube change might be a little risky in that regard.

Perhaps the bead loosens up with repeated stretching.

even the folder has a stiff as a board bead

so these tires grip well, wear well, which is the only reason they don't get a worse review, however... they are stiff as a board to get on and off the rim. Changing a tube if you get a flat is such a pain. My new Gator Hardshell tires are so much easier to get on and off. I know this because I mounted one with the rotation direction going the wrong way, and it only took me a few more minutes to switch it back.

Good All-Arounder

I think the other reviewers have summed up my feelings pretty well. Writing this just to add yet another confirming witness that this is a decent all-around tire. It's definitely not as fast as a GP4k but then, it shouldn't be at the price you pay for these and furthermore, I want more durability in a tire I plan to beat up every day. That said, they are NOT slow. They roll best in their first 400mi of use and as my back tire has gotten more worn, it doesn't feel quite as lively. Still a good fast tire though. Stands up well to my trainer which munches tires pretty well. Not sure about other folks but mine were a tight fit on both Mavic wheelsets that I have. Can't beat the price- will definitely order more.

Great tire!

I ordered two sets of these tires and put one set on my Pinarello and one on my Lynskey. I've only put in one ride on each bike...but the tires felt great. One ride was a hill ride and the other was pure speed. I like these tires. I'll see how they hold up after a few 100 miles...but thus far...excellent. I would definitely recommend these tires. In fact, I'm ordering a set for my EVO.

Great training tire- maybe fast enough to race

700x25- replaced yksions that came with my kysrium elites. About 100mi so far on urban roads i ride at lunch. Despite price tag of the yksions i am very impressed. Seem easily as fast. Puncture resistance is always subjective but so far no nicks or cuts. Ride is smooth, gp4k-like. If i had no time to switch out tires or wheels, i wouldn't feel like i was making a major compromise competing on these. No wet weather experience but dry grip is good- smooth transition off the center tread into corners entices you to push in further. Better than the yksions. Mounting? Well they are a very tight fit.

Excellent millage tire

I rode these tires an average of 200 miles per week for a total of 3000 miles without a flat. Best tires I've ridden in the last 10,000 miles.

Best all around training tire. Period.

I have been riding and racing for 4 decades. I have used nearly every model of every major brand of tire. Clinchers and tubulars. Contis roll and wear the best. This tire is by far the best bang for the buck for everyday use. 180tpi for 20 something dollars. No brainer. For all out racing go for the Contis high end tires.

Split along the bead. Returning

Purchased 4 Continental Ultra Sport II (Folding) Nov 2015, 2 have split along the bead. Two are on the bike now, waiting to see if they will last. Calling exchange or refund, hope this is just a bad batch. The wire bead tire would last a year or more, tried to upgrade at the new low price.

Good value

These tires roll really nice and relatively fast for a 28c. I have 500 miles on them and they are showing minimal wear. I will definitely be looking at these again when I need to replace the current ones.

Tough, long lasting tire with a great ride at a great price.

I'm a fairly serious cyclist and a triathlete. I bought a set of these for training tires on my tri bike. I've been riding Conti Grand Prix's on my road bikes and thought I might try a cheaper tire for lots of training miles. The tires ride great. They are incredibly durable (no visible wear in 500 miles, I may need to cut off the little nibs because I can't seem to wear them off). They roll remarkably easy. For the price they are pretty incredible.

However, that incredibly hard wearing rubber doesn't inspire the same confidence that the Grand Prix's do. I haven't really had any trouble, but I don't want to push them into the corners. Probably a great tire for riders who put in lots of training miles. I'll go ahead and pay the extra for the Grand Prix's.

So far so good

Just purchased the 25's and so far so good. The Ultra Sport II are ridiculously inexpensive for the quality of the tire. I had some concern for the speed of the tire as they are a little heavier, but no problem, plus they handle well. Not as sticky as 4000's, but secure through hard turns. Too early to speak about durability at only 200 miles, although I've never had flatting problems with any Continental tire at any price point.

Best training tire out there

As a cat 1 racer doing about 10,000 miles a year, I blow through tires. Since I race on tubulars, I'm usually only concerned about getting a cheap training tire that gets me a ton of mileage and won't break the bank. I've never cared about ride quality...until I bought these. When I saw the price of these tires and the TPI, I didn't really believe it, so I bought 5 from Biketiresdirect. Most training tires in this price range that I typically buy have a tpi around 30-70 and these are 180! You WILL notice that ride quality difference! I've pushed some of these tires to about 2000 miles (and other training tires to even more...until they are square) to get to the wear indicators but was getting too many flats. So you may not get down to the wear indicators if you ride on roads with as much debris as I do. So just change them a bit sooner. This is by far the best training tires I've ever ridden.

Great Training tire

I purchased the tires for my training bike and have put around 500 miles on them so far. I've used Continental tires in the past so I decided to try this less expensive version. The tires roll well,are confidence inspiring in the corners, and give a good feel of the road. They have been rock solid so far and I've not had a single flat.

Not as durable as higher-end Contis

I bought four of these because of the price and my experience with Continental tires (5000km of touring on TravelContact and TourRide tires without a flat), but I was a bit disappointed - I've had a few flats, and some of the tires have worn through to the threads after less than 1000km (600 miles). I do have to ride on some pretty rough roads, but I was hoping they'd last a bit longer. And no, I don't skid, I'm not Peter Sagan...

Excellent tire at a bargain price

Well made, durable tire with good grip, good looks, and the convenience of a folding bead. I can mount and remove these tires without needing tire levers - - less to carry, while eliminating the chance of pinching the inner tubes. Life is good !!!

My rides involve a lot of steep descents so the grip (and resulting confidence) is much appreciated. Great value!

Great training tire for the price..

Finally- a reasonably priced all-around training tire that won't break the bank. Best (for the money) trainer I have found since the discontinued Ultra 2000. I have 2000 miles on my rear Ultra Sport II and no sign of wear. I ride rough chip seal country roads and these hold up well. Nice ride, but you might need to experiment with your psi. Rode a little harsh at first, then I dropped the psi and made a lot of difference. I noticed these have a rotation direction, but I don't think it matters. I like these tires a lot.

Conti still has great tires. These were affordable tires and they have a good feel for the road at this price point. No problems with flats so far. I will ride these on dirt roads as well. Good stuff.

Durable, yet affordable tire

I have a good collection of bikes that I use regularly and rely on a durable choice of tire so I'm not having to change them frequently. Continental is a top name brand with models at a different range of prices, but I find their trickle-down quality of the medium-lower lines quite high.
