The Double Fighter II playfully combines high speed on the road with reliable grip on off-road terrain This means it is also suitable for MTBs that are used mainly on-road and occasional light off-road terrain. The use of a tough 'gumwall' sidewall means that the tyre will be more resistant to urban detritus and the service life of the tyre will also be improved.
Ideal for commuters needing on/off road performance and reliability.
About MTB Slick Tyres
These road tyres will fit Mountain Bike wheels and are primarily for road and light trail use. They will be faster and grip better than a standard ‘knobbly’ styled cross country tyre on road. These tyres work by putting a large area of grippy rubber in contact with the road so they only need a minimal tread pattern. This semi-slick design reduces rolling resistance and improves both speed and safety. Sharp objects like thorns and glass are likely to work their way through your tyres and cause punctures so choose a model with built-in puncture protection. After all, you will want to get home from work or morning ride on time... especially if it's raining! Kevlar shielding as found in the Schwalbe tyre range is a common choice and works well at reducing the amount of punctures. Some Continental tyres even come with a 1 year anti puncture guarantee and use a Kevlar and Polyamide filaments to form a protective belt under the tread.
About the Continental brand
More than 100 years experience in the development and production of bicycle tyres has made Continental a unique company within the industry. Continental is the only German bicycle tyre manufacturer to produce its tyres in Germany. Knowing this serves as a mighty incentive to our engineers and everyone else involved in the manufacturing process to constantly strive for further innovations. In our technology and development center in Korbach, we are constantly developing new revolutionary technologies such as the unbeatable Black Chili Compound and the ultimate Vectran™ Breaker anti-puncture technology, both used at the top end of race sport. These technologies demand sophisticated processes to ensure our legendary end-product quality, and these innovations as well as the new “ProTection” and ”RaceSport” technology for MTB tyres, can only be manufactured in our factory in Germany – “Handmade in Germany”. In order to offer the best tyre for any application, we rely equally on dialogue with our professional racers, hobby cyclists and everyday bike riders. This results not only in high-end products for top sports applications such as the new Podium TT or the revolutionary downhill tyre “Der Kaiser”, but also tyres for everyday use like the new innovative combination EcoContact/EcoContact Plus as a companion to the latest e-bike trend. As a global player, Continental also maintains high-tech production facilities outside of Germany, where Continental tyres are produced for you with an equal degree of care and dedication. One thing all Continental bicycle tyres have in common is that they are developed in the technology center in Korbach, Germany, where they also undergo strict inspection. Our heart and soul is behind the phrase “Handmade in Germany”, with all of its products and technologies.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Could anyone recommend a suitable inner tube for this tyre or does it not matter that much?
As for inner tubes, it's never mattered what sort I use as long as they're the right size, for instance, don't try 2.1-2.6 tubes if your tyres are 2.1's, go for the 1.7-2.1's instead.
Just one thing when fitting the tyres I presume the front tyre has the front directional arrow facing to the front of the bike!
With the rear does the front arrow face the front or the rear arrow face the front??
I assumed the arrow was for the direction of travel.
So for the front, use the front arrow as direction of travel and for the rear use the rear arrow.
I was a little confused also at first.
What are the min\max widths I should consider assuming I cannot get the 1.95 width?
Have a look at the Twin Rail 2.2's, see my review, they're wider than 1.95's but weren't too wide in the frame, and were very fast rolling without being a slick.
