High class city / touring tyre - The Contact has been modified to include an updated tread pattern and reflective (reflex) sidewall as standard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tinker2000 Lovely fast tyre
I bought these because I have to travel to work on the bike and these roll very fast. One one was out of shape but CR replaced it very quickly and the replacement is fine. These tyres feature a reflective strip along the edges which makes me more visible on the dark lanes I travel along. The grip is ok as long as there is no mud, in which case things get a little iffy.
However, these are light and fast which are the main reasons I bought them. No punctures either is a bonus in over 1000 miles of riding :)
