This tire is by far the best tyre i have ever brought. I am a keen Cyclist and i do 21 miles every day and used to get flats all the time. I have tried everything to avoid them. I was buying expensive ones and cheep ones changing my inner tube, nothing worked. No joke at least ones a week I would get a flat and that would be if I was lucky. I brought this tyre about 6 months ago and have probably done over 1500 miles on it can't be asked to do the math but it's allot. And guess what not one flat on that tyre still do this day! I am so impressed with this product I am even leaving a review and that's not something I have ever done before. I am just about to buy another one for my front tyre. As it has puncher. Oh yer this tyre is good for speed to i can defiantly tell the different from my old tyre it slightly goes in to a single point so a lot less resentence. And one day cycling to a friend's house and had to take my road bike on a country foot path. Full of broken glass sharp stones dead body's the lot. And my lovely little tyre made it without getting a flat but my other tire didn't shouldent have to have to worry about this happening again. Thank god, will now be cycling with 100% confidence now.
Don't be stupid buy this tire you will not be disappointed. Its cheep and very cheerful hope you found this helpful, and if you don't buy it think about not buying this when you're pushing your bike back home.

On a recent ride to France 4 miles in and my back tyre exploded, a friend who i was riding with at the time gave me a spare tyre (the GP 4000), i rode 400 miles with this tyre, had no problems with it and improved the ride quailty some what. On comming home i bought myself another for the front,they have seemed to increase my coasting speed and have much better grip compared to my previous tyres. (Schalbe Luganos). I have since rode a further 600miles with these tyres and are showing little wear. Overall im very happy with them.

I have had these on my summer road bike for 5 years. I changed 1 tyre after 3 years, but the other is still going strong after what must be over 5,000 miles. Good grip in rain and seem pretty quick. I think I have had about 3 punctures over the 5 years. Worth the money.

Ok these tyres look great and being from a being from a big well known tyre manufacture like continental you would think they would be well constructed, unfortunately when I placed these tyres on my bike they did not live up to their name. The back tyre blew apart on me the side wall just gave up and bang, I also found the side wall beginning to bulge on the front tyre so this would have almost certainly been another blow out had I kept using it. To cut a long story short both are now in the bin, they were both well inside their design max pressures and failed horribly, can't recommend these at all.

This tire for my road bike is by far the best I have tried with a good compromise between durability and speed. I have used this for over 600km rides back and forth between nottingham and derby for a few weeks now and the tire is still working well. with having only 1 puncture so far while trying to catch up a commuter bike on a very sharp rocky road at 20mph but apart from that only few scratches...

i have this kinda tyre on both wheels on my race bike , 5000 km without puncture is done. ( i had flat tyres riding my MTB with different tyres, on same routes where i ride my race bike, so i think continental is the best

Recently built a bike and these were what an enthusiast recommended. He was completely right, they're excellent tyres. After doing many miles of commuting on poor roads I've only had 1 puncture, and that was from a drawing pin and so doesn't really count. Excellent grip, rolling resistance and toughness - probably the best tyre for this sort of money.

Excellent puncture resistance, longevity, grip and low weight. On my Dura Ace C24's, they feel quite stiff/solid compared to say Michelins or Vittoria Corsa's which some will like and some won't. At the end of the day for a mass produced, reasonably cheap all round tyre (suitable for winter use or a 1 hour summer crit) I think these are pretty much unbeatable. I do prefer the "feel" of the Michelin Pro Race tyres & Corsa CX's but the Contis murder them for longevity and puncture resistance.
