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.

Magazine reviews for Continental SportContact City MTB Wire Bead Tyre
Review from Cycling Plus
One year guarantee against tyre failure, and you even get a free innertube with the tyre, so it's good value
Fast and fairly tough MTB slick that's a little off the pace in 700C
Review from What MTB
The Sport Contact uses Conti's high natural rubber compound in a very svelte 1.3 casing with a nearly slick tread. The Sport Contact comes with a 4 ply polymer resistant layer and a one year Safety System guarantee + a FREE narrow inner tube
Great look and feel from a speedy tyre and price includes tube and guarantee.
Rating: Performance 10/10 Value 8/10
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
When I received the package it says 26 x 1 3/8 - 1.75 which are bigger than 1.3 I think??? Should I have got the Tour 26 slim, as the continental web site seems to say that in their table?
1) Return it and get the recommended inner tubes size.
2) If you can't return it. why not try it on, I am sure it will fit. May be not perfectly.
I managed to get the 1.3's on my MTB that I use for commuting. Look for my review.
My rims are 1 inch across and they've stayed on the bike fine. Similar look to road bike tyres, but mine didn't last very long. The tread isn't very deep and they've worn away. Need to replace them already.
