Date Reviewed: June 14, 2006

Strengths:    Only seems suitable for hot-weather, smooth asphalt, hi-psi budget spinning. And maybe the new ones are different?

Weaknesses:    Tread material was made for low resistance, high grip.. so it's hard and sheds, too much silica probably. It had low mileage and a narrow temperature margin makes it practically slick in the cold/wet. My 650 wire bead model was heavy and less like a casing and more like a hoop, it was shifty on the rim and nightmarish with low psi due too overly tall paper-ish sidewall.

Bottom Line:   
My OEM 650c tri-bike came with these and I was not impressed. They have have long L-shaped slot treads instead of the short curved ones I am seeing in all the ads. Anthracite grey w/ black sidewalls. Maybe they were from an earlier year.

Strengths:    Smooth ride, decent grip while it lasted

Weaknesses:    Wears and cuts too easily.

Bottom Line:   
OK tire, but seems delicate. After only 250mi on typical US suburban roads (pretty smooth), rear tire had obvious wear spots & cuts. Junked tire due to a cut through the casing. I expect more life from a tire.

Strengths:    Good performance from the Continental Ultra 3000 en lasted fairly long i think.

Weaknesses:    Just started to ride. I don't know what you can't expect after 3800 km!

Bottom Line:   
The Koga Miyata Bike is a great Bike to ride. The tires who goes aloang with the bike are Continental ultra 3000 tires.

After 3800 km in 10 month's they were worn out. Now I use Continental Grand Prix (C-145) (EUR 16.95).

Bottom Line:   
Tire performance was fine, but they didn't last long. I probably got 400 miles out of them before I strted getting major cuts completely through the tire.

Equivalent to Conti Ultra 3000

I have a pair of Continental Ultra 3000 (700x28c) tires that I've been using on my winter training bike for the last couple of seasons. These are wire bead but reasonably light (est. 280 grams), and I've found them to be durable with no flats that I can recall. Since these have long been phased ... Read More »

Forte Kevlar VS Conti Ultra 3000

Performance has them in 700x26 (Forte) for $19.99 and 700x25 Conti's for $24.99, plus the 20% off coupon good for this weekend. Since I also need a couple of other items I thought I would take advantage. BTW, they claim 127 tpi casings for the Forte at 250 grams. I'm a newbie so I'll introduce: ... Read More »

Continental Ultra 3000 tires--why big discounts?

Nashbar is selling Conti Ultra 3000 28 mm tires for $12.95. Somebody is selling 25 mm Ultra 3000 on Ebay cheap. Is there some problem with these tires? I bought 4 from Nashbar. I like 28 mm width and slick tread. Seems like a good deal even if they only last 800 miles. Reviews herre don't seem ... Read More »
