Super fast city slicker....now available in reflective sidewall & 20" options. The Sport Contact has a rolling resistance comparable to some of our road bike tyres, it's THAT fast! Those in a hurry will benefit from the new features which make the tyre more resistant to punctures than the old Avenue. Check out our tyre application chart for more help in choosing your ideal city/touring tyres. Other tyres in the new Contact range include City Contact for those commuters requiring a wider, slightly more comfortable tyre, Travel Contact which is intended for world touring and so can handle rougher terrain, and the Contact which is our new tyre for touring enthusiast such as CTC and Audax cyclists. All the contact tyres are built with a hybrid aramid/polyamide belt under the tread where the lightweight & flexible polyamide is used as the main material to keep rolling resistance low, and filaments of aramid (kevlar) are spread over this belt to give a strong yet lightweight puncture protection system. The compound we have used for the Sport Contact uses a mix of carbon and silica as the main agents. Carbon aids tread life whilst the silica boosts grip levels. The tread uses a high concentration of natural rubber, giving superior wet grip to synthetic compounds. Includes moderate grooves in the tread to guide water away from the contact area for your safety on wet roads.
