Product Description

The Continental Travel Contact Reflex Tire is designed to hammer out mile after mile on the open road. Continental incorporated their own DuraSkin technology into the sidewalls of the Travel Contact Reflex Tire for protection against road debris like glass and thorns. Conti designers were also aware that a touring/commuting tire needed to have a high carrying capacity, so they add added their SafetySystem polyamide/KEVLAR belt under the tread to improve wear resistance and increase protection ag

Strengths:    Sidewalls protected by Duraskin along with a molded in "protection strip".

Weaknesses:    None so far. They are heavier than others but gears make up for that

Bottom Line:   
A great multi-purpose tire. Great road performance, good cornering and OK for trails. A great touring tire for unkind roads and trails. A good rolling tire.
I've had them on about 2 years with NO flats and I'm in Arizona with sharp rocks and cactus thorns all over the trails here.
