We contribute all of our know-how as one of the leading automotive winter tyre producers into the the new Top Contact Winter II, and it shows. The tread design’s outer appearance alone is convincing due to its never-ending grip. Thanks to countless lamellae, hundreds of biting edges permanently interlock with the surface. The tread compound that is adapted specifi cally to cold temperatures will even continue to get you going when other bike riders are spinning their wheels.
With the PolyX-Breaker, we are bringing our car expertise to the bicycle tyre sector. Polyester has been used successfully in car tyres for years and has proven itself over and over. The highly durable polyester thread is crossstitched with a close mesh. As a result, very high fabric density is achieved, which not only makes the breaker more durable against foreign objects, but also particularly resistant to punctures.
The tyres with the Continental ECO logo benefit from over 100 years of experience in the development of mopeds and motorcycle tyres. Optimized and recommended for e-bikes at speeds of up to 25 km/h, they guarantee low roll resistance and good puncture protection with their extra high quality construction. The durability has been studied on e-bikes to prevent early wear and tear due to the additional drive forces. Some models, such as the TopContact II, also have the ECE-R 75 test label which authorizes use on fast e-bikes up to 50 km/h.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous peeps, if you're reading this and you are searching for a winter tyre buy this one!!!! my experiance with this tyre is; i was riding this set in the winter in the city. what makes this so special, is you can feel it braking out with a much larger amount of time and a more linear sweep. convential tyres you will smack down instanly in corner's even if you have spiked tyre's. this gives you more time!!! and much, much, MUCH more control. i even stopped thinking about buying summer tyres, because i love them so much!!! i hope i get my point across....
