Continental Touring Plus Tyre

Don't be afraid of the puncture demon!

Stones, glass splinters and thorns have no chance. Whatever you ride over will find it virtually impossible to pierce the compact highly elastic PlusBreaker band under the tread. Extremely puncture resistant. Its balanced tread pattern has bikes rolling effortlessly down roads and paths, while its finely siped shoulder blocks provide surefooted grip in corners. Its reflective sidewall helps to make you highly visible for top level safety.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Within a month one tyre split, the other got a puncture! I've ridden with Schwalbe Marathon Plus for 6 years without a single puncture on my London commuter mountain bike - 3500 miles a year. I decided to try something different - and cheaper - BIG MISTAKE! Within a month of fitting them the front tyre has developed a small but nasty gash and the rear tyre got a puncture from a very small tack - the sort of thing that the Schwalbe M+ would shrug off. I was using them with brand new Continental tubes too. If you're buying these for puncture resistance and quality, then forget it. For Continental to claim that this is a seriously puncture resistant tyre and comparable to the Marathon Plus is rubbish, and to say that they're a hard-wearing reliable tyre is not true. Whilst this is only my experience, both of the Continental Touring Plus tyres on my bike have failed to meet my expectations. Pay the extra, go for Schwalbe Marathon Plus. These tyres aren't up to it. 02 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent all-rounder tyre My wife and I use these for touring and commuting; between us we've had two punctures in 12,000 miles (4 tyres). They last well, 4,000 miles on rear, >6,000 on front. Others comment on weight; I don't know, as avoiding punctures is more important to us than a few grams when you're touring with an all-up weight of 25kg. We too like the bright sidewall for visibility. We find them grippy under all circumstances, never had problems with slipping in the wet, though we are quite cautious. We keep on buying these: it's hard to see how they could be improved on. 20 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Excellent product. No punctures and still only showing slight wear on the rear wheel after 6,000 miles. 04 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by awful! I bought these tyres (700 x 37) last year and thankfully they have completely worn out (approx 2000 miles). They produced a lot of road noise for a road tyre (sounded like a mountain bike tyre on the road), had poor rolling resistance and were very harsh over poor road surfaces. I have now bought a pair of Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres* (700 x 38) which are fantastic. ( *see my other review) 21 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличная прочность. Они выдерживают даже российские дороги :) Хорошо показали себя как на ужасном асфальте, так и на пересеченной местности. 15 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great item Got these for wife so she doesn't need to worry too much about a puncture out on her own. Not worried about the extra weight they add to the ride. 10 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good tyre, for what it was intended for. I got a 28c size for commuting daily 30kms. Roads can be very gritty so I opted for puncture protection over weight. I think there is a good balance with this tyre between weight and protection. The bonus feature is the reflective side stripe. Very visible, and makes the tyres look white-walled. As I have disk brakes I hope it stays looking good for a while! Note, I struggled to fit the tyre over the rims but I learned to make very sure that the tyre was well bedded down inside the well of the riml opposite to the part of the tyre I was trying to lift over the rim. Then it was ok to fit. 13 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good price for quality Good quality tyre. Used on the touring bike for a while, a good roller. 09 March 2014

Answer: 
According to the embossed print on the wall of the tyre (VERY difficult to read) there is a direction - chevrons point upwards when viewed from the rear (think of the rear view of a tractor if it helps).

However, in all honesty, I can't see myself how it makes any difference to a bike tyre with very shallow sipes/tread.

I am currently wearing 700x35c. I am thinking of getting the 42c or the 1.6inch. Will they both match my rim (19mm) and if so what tubes should I buy as well?

Answers

Answer: 
A 19mm rim can run anything from a 28c to a 44c (1.75") wide tyre, and you should opt for a tube that covers the range of your tyre width, keeping as close to the lower side as possible (eg if fitting a 700x42c tyre, opt for a 700x28-45c tube rather than a 700x38-52c).

Want something more puncture resistant than the supplied BoroughXC 700x45c's on my Specialised Crosstrail. It's mainly for road use and, at this price, thought I'd give these a try! - should I go for the 42 or 47mm option?

Answer: 
as you spend most of your time on the road the best option is the 42c. The thinner tyre will have less rolling resistance so will roll faster.
