The Contact has been modified to include an updated tread pattern and reflective (Reflex) sidewall as standard. A uniform centre tread/belt assembly ensures a smooth and speedy ride on the road. Flexible shoulder lugs and fines sipes guarantee grip in curves and on loose surfaces. A tough gumwall sidewall enables the tyre to withstand the harsh urban environment and the strong forces of tandem use. The ultra fine polyamide carcass reduces rolling resistance whilst providing a more comfortable ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Sweet spot
Very fine mid-pressure (70 PSI) city/trek tyre from Conti. Plenty of grip for loose surfaces, yet feels much quicker and lighter than some of the other German offerings. Good road feedback and braking performance on my folding bike. No punctures yet, either. Fitted as standard to £1400 Moulton bikes, Contact II's aren't cheap but they are very pleasant to ride. Good looking, with reflective strips and pleasing to ride on.
