Continental Sport Contact 1.6
Best mountain bike tyre for london?
I love these tyres, they grip ok and last a few thousand city miles but best of all I have not had a puncture riding a "Sport Contact"!!!
Continental Sport Contact 1.6 weighed 494g.
1.6 or 1.3 ?
The 1.6 tyres soak up bumps and lumps much better than the 1.3.
Riding in London, the extra few (@ 50) grams and a tiny amount of extra rolling resistance of the 1.6 tyre is far outweighed by the smoothness of the ride over a Continental Sport Contact 1.3.
