This tyre is excellent value, and performs exceedingly well. The grip is excellent, and the combination of central bead for easy rolling on tarmac with decent lugs on the sides means they are perfect for a mixed commute of road/track. Puncture protection also appears very good with no punctures after a couple of months of daily use on a cycle track.

Bargain for the daily commute
I bought these to go on my MTB, as I really go off-road nowadays but still use the bike for commuting.
These tyres looks good, they feel good and the ride is smooth (especially compared to my old knobbly tyres!).
Fitting was a piece of cake, so no issues there.
For the money and the intended use I'd say these are excellent.

I replaced my original MTB tyres with these slicks and what a difference . The tyres are what i would call intermediate and are great on standard roads but also suitable for gravel tracks . I use mainly on the road and have noticed the increase in speed with these tyres and would highly recommend these to serious road users .

Good quality and easy to fit
I replaced my mountain bike tyres with these for commuting after reading reviews of others.
They fit well, were easy to put on even with tubes that were a little bit too big.
No problems at all... The only thing is it's the first time I have changed from MTB tyres and I was expecting a bit more of a difference :) but they do still have quite a bit of tread (which I still preferred) so I guess that's why. I rode home in the rain today and felt very safe with this tread. My bike is a lot lighter with these on though which is nice.

This tyre is value for money, driving up and down to work. Reduces the noise and resistance on the roads I use. I have to use it a couple of weeks more to see if it's realy resistant for a longer period to punctures.

very good for the price
Bought them a few days before doing a coast to coast charity ride, (approx 140 miles), they worked great! Going from mountain bike tyres to these I found it hard when doing the few off road sections as the lack of grip but to be expected. On cycle paths and roads they eat it up, and help me reach my fastest ever on road down hill speed.

wanted to exchange 2.1 off road tyres for more road biased.
1.75 excellent rolling resistance
suitable for well maintained trail use

Perfect for the change between mountain bike and road bike tyre's. Especially for the family bikes.

Comfy city tire
Definitely comfier than the MTB knobblies I used. I have gone higher than the recommended pressures at 65psi and they have been fine.
Rides well but rolling resistance is not the best.
07 May 2013
Bought these for my short commute on my MTB. Look great and ride very well on a mixture of surfaces.
06 May 2013
Bought for a mountain bike used for commuting through town each day.. Roll well for the price.

Quality tyre until you get a puncture.
Quality tyre however very hard to remove objects when you get a punture due to thickness of the rubber and thickness of the tyre conceals cause of puncture.

Ideal commuting tyre
Low price but still a good performer.
I commute 60-80 miles a week and have found this tyre wears very well and still give me confidence on slippery roads in the winter.
It may be a bit heavy and not have the low rolling resistance of performance tyres but for the price and for commuting you'll be hard pushed to find a better tyre.

Great road and light track work tyre
I fitted these tyres to my SRAM 406 x17C wheels. They fitted perfectly and ride like a dream. I use my mtb for commuting on road and light off road tracks. These tyres have worked wonderfully in all conditions I have subjected them to except only rather steep sandy inclines. Though they are really beyond the design intents of these tyres.
The feel on the road and gravel is great and I ride with confidence that I will get to my destination without incident.

Life's big decisions
Robust common sense tyres for badly maintained roads. Good for deep puddles and axial cracks along country lanes. Fully inflated allow rewarding speed for each pedal stroke.

great alround tyre
used this tyre on road and tracks for last 6 months one puncture well pleased with them

Bought a pair of these for the 90s Pub Bike because i was sick of the "Being chased with a Land Rover" noise from the off road tyres. Easy to fit first time without having to reseat on rim numerous times to run true. A nice quiet tyre that has a quality feel to it with a good tread pattern. Since buying (delivered next day by Wiggle) i have covered around 400 miles on our Scottish roads and canal paths, wet,muddy and icy, and these tyres have coped extremely well. Most importantly no punctures.

Making life a little easier
I have been less and less off road on my mtb, so I decided to convert to a thinner road based tyre. I have used these tyres on very wet (flooded) country road this autumn with not problems. They not only make the bike feel faster, but the increase level of confidence I have makes riding on autumnal roads a joy.
I also did a bit of riding across muddy fields and although not brilliant, they still sort of worked.

Great value tyres for a mountain bike if you are mainly riding on roads. A huge improvement with speed and much less road noise!

Excellent all-sason tyre
I recently bought a 2012 Trek 4300 with disc brakes for abit of fun on tracks but also wanted a decent tough bike for the daily commute. The bike originally came with real chunky Bontrager XR2's which are ok but I wanted better rolling resistance. These Conti's are perfect for what I need and can do everything I need. They don't even take away anything from the aggressive styling of the bike even though I have now gone from 2.1's to 1.75's. Although I have put a rear rack on there for my panniers!
Love these tyres and will be getting these for my single speed mixte too. Wiggle are awesome when it comes to price, delivery and keeping you updated on your package. I'm in Sydney and they got here quick!

Great commuting tyres
Got these for my ride to work, I do a10mile trip and half of it is on a ruff track. These are great for both, they wouldn't be much good in a lot of mud.

I am afraid to confirm that the correct tyre fit is decided by the width of the current rims. In this case however dropping from a 2.1 inch width tyre to a 1.75 inch should not cause you issues, but to ensure this is correct please contact us directly using firstname.lastname@example.org with your current rims and we will of course advise further.
