Continental Contact 2 Tire

The Contact's large size, tough casing, and tread makes it a great choice for commuting, bad roads, and off season training.

Its tread has been designed based upon the principles of what Continental refers to as "bionics". The idea being, a uniform center tread/belt assembly that ensures a smooth and speedy ride on the road, while having flexible shoulder lugs and fine sipes for a guaranteed grip in curves and on loose surfaces. Aptly named, the tire offers plenty of contact with the road. The ultra fine carcass fabric reduces the rolling resistance while providing a noticeably more comfortable ride.

The tire has a 28mm profile and fits in just about all road frames and road caliper brakes. Outstanding winter trainer and commuting tire.

    Heavy but a great winter tire. Smooths out the pavement cracks & frost heave encountered on roads during the winter. As a bonus, traction in the grit found along the edges of roads is better when climbing hills.
