Traffic signal sprinter! This super fast looking city slicker turns any bike into a racer, helping bike messengers meet those tight deadlines or fitness riders who require a faster tyre than the heavier knobblies their bike was supplied with. Puncture protection and reliability is taken care of thanks to Continental's renowned hard wearing tread compound and SafetySystem. Suitable for use with a Dynamo.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really strong tyre Looks great, runs smooth and fast as you would expect, real surprise was strength. Ran over smashed beer bottle outside work one morning and thought puncture for sure. Tyre stayed inflated, was picking shards out expecting each one to lead to puncture, nothing. Still riding on fully inflated tyre 2 weeks later. 27 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Road tyre for a MTB bike A great way to turn your mountain bike in to a road bike or for commuting. 21 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb I've been running on continental sport contacts for 5 years now and for me there's no other choice. Very fast, reliable and durable, silent to the point of scaring pedestrians and, provided a good infrastructure, can clear water with no problem. I would recommend these any day 13 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product fast and confident piece of equipment. good traction. making you daring to push it harder in corners and secure in traffic :) "this or my own opinions, havent tried so many other similar tires. 21 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Slick Good Grip 26x1.3 Reflective I got the reflective strip ones and it looks great not only in the night but day. The grip is good just a few skids at rear tire even in dry weather. The free DHL delivery is extremely fast for my 1st time purchase but slower in free Parcelforce for 2nd time purchase. Not sure will the delivery be fast again for my subsequent purchases? 13 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well on a recumbent Used this on my 20" -> 26" wheel converted Raptobike Lowracer recumbent and works great. I did have some problems installing - noticed an inner lump on one part on my first ride. Filled with air up until to the max until it popped out. Now rides just fine! 12 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast commuting tyre and good confort and flat protection This tyre is perfect if you're looking for a very fast commuting tyre. The protection against flat is amazing. I've hade many and the quality is good but they wear faster than heavier tyres like schwalbe marathon. You'll have to choose between lightweight and fast (these# or longer wearing but slower and heavier (marathon). 04 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very fast comfortable mtb slick This is an excellent tyre and will really transform your MTB for road use. Previously used Michelin city tyres but these are a big step up from commuter type tyres. Running 1.6 on a Mavic xc717 rim and fit is very good. Mounted with just one bit of help from lever. Recommended psi is 65 which is both fast and comfortable. Make sure you use right size inner tubes. Standard MTB tubes are too big. 1 - 1.5 size is ideal. 27 January 2014

Answer: 
In my opinion there shouldn't be any problem. But to be cautious, take the 1.6'' sport contact.

Answer: 
I would advise schwalbe mtb tube. Buy 1.0-1.5'' if you take the tire in 1.3''. Or take the 1.5-2.5'' if you take the tire in 1.6''.
Choose the valve that you prefer.

Does this come with an inner tube?

I've bought several continental tyres and tyre sets that include an inner tube. Do they still come with one?

Answer: 
No inner tubes included.

You can consider to get additional tubes from CRC if that is cheaper for your usual setup.

Answers

Answer: 
The 57-559 identifies your tyre as 57mm wide (2.25") and 26" in diameter. The rim is 19mm wide (and 26" diameter) so will accept any tyres from 1.5" to 2.3" without any trouble. You could likely fit the 1.3" tyre to your rim, although it will give you a very low profile tyre and could increase the risk of sidewall damage. I would err on the side of caution and only go as low as the 1.6" width option.

Answers

Answer: 
A tyre section of 44-62mm equates to a 1.7-2.4", so any 26" tyre running between these widths will be fine. The 1.6" version of these Sport Contact should fit ok as well.
