The Contact II is our day to day urban commuter for hybrid bikes. It's also designed as a reliable high-end tourer for serious touring cyclists. With a reflective sidewall option, the Contact II is safe, long lasting, reliable and fast rolling - the perfect mix for today's demanding bike rider.
A uniform centre tread/belt assembly ensures a smooth and speedy ride on the road. Flexible shoulder lugs and fines sipes give assured grip on loose, wet surfaces like gritty corners and tow paths.
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 ridgeback very good wear resistance
These tyres came standard on my Ridgback Flyte, still using the tyres at 3250 miles though the rear is looking worn. Very few punctures, about one every 1000 miles which considering the commute I ride and the amount of green glass I see is pretty good. Will definatly be replaceing like for like.
