Continental tyres are the bees knees, great rolling resistance and puncture resistance is why I come back to them again and again for my daily commuter
Very light and smoooth. Feels like your actually riding in a Lincoln Continental and not a bike. Will certainly buy again.
Bought these to replace the bullet proof, but heavy Schwalbe Marathon Plus's on the tandem. Only 150 miles so far, but very pleased with the performance on road and on canal towpaths. Lightweight and has survived two kerbings. Yet to test them in the wet...
These tyres were quite easy to fit - certainly not what I had been advised by other users. Already survived a couple of rides on poor road surfaces with no issues.
I borrowed a set of these tyres from a friend and thought they were brilliant, so have now brought some for myself. Although I am sure roadies will disagree, it makes my mountain bike more like a road bike and suitable for long distances on roads!
Very fast rolling. A bit tight to fit, but once on, very pleased and great service from Merlin.
Great tyres for my hardtail on the road. Makes my training rides so much more controlled.
Very quick and grip fantastically in the wet. Must have commuting tyre.
Awesome bit of kit, super slick!
Great Tyre, Replaced Michelin Run'rs with these tyres, First impressions are they are not as fast and not as grippy as the michelins, However i've pumped up to max psi and have had no punctures so far, michelins are i think softer rubber giving faster grip and ride but are prone to punctures (5 in 2 months)the reason i changed!!!
good grip, low rolling resistance and good puncture protection
Only done about a hundred miles , but very happy so far run well and no flats . Only thing to watch, they are very tight fit on rims so folding might be better.
