Continental Contact Extralight Tires - Clincher

DESCRIPTION

The Contact Extra Light delivers the excellent grip and reliability with a slightly lighter tread. This decreased mass allows the tire to roll more smoothly and delivers an enhanced road feel. Touring riders will gladly welcome the reduction in rolling resistance. The Contact Extra Light utilizes the same carefully designed tread pattern as the regular Contact for exceptional water shedding and traction in less than ideal conditions.

Strength:

Roll well, light for size, go on easy

Weakness:

NOT puncture resistant

Purchased these because of "SafetySystem anti puncture layer with Kevlar® " and very postitive experience w/ Conti Gator Skins. I've had the Gators on my road bike and commuter for several years and not one flat!!! I wanted a larger tire for dirt roads and light commuting and figured the Contact would offer the same level of puncture resistance. Alas, I flatted on my 3rd or 4th ride! ....shoulda just forked out the extra for Schwables.
