  • Product description

    • You can't develop a tyre for globetrotters on the drawing board
    • So that is why Tilmann Waldthaler's experience has been put to use in the development of the Travel Contact
    • His requirements were obvious:
    • A robust carcass with a high carrying capacity and protection against chafing and cuts
    • An effective puncture resistance and a tread that makes it possible to explore paths around the world quickly and safely
    • Ideal for touring all kinds of routes
    • Features a Duraskin protected sidewall and SafetySystem Breaker
    • Constructed for 3 plies, totalling 180 TPI
    • Weight: 580 grams

    Picks up punctures

    Wear off really quickly, lots of punctures. Gatorskin way better on my roadbike, this tyre picks up puncture every few days now. :( Only half year old tyre, not too many miles..

    Good service, good tyres, not sure about the packaging

    The service was good, however the tyres were twisted and folded for dispatch. They are not folding tyres! As a result they were bent out of shape, and fitting them was difficult, as the bead has been deformed and had to be encouraged to sit properly on the rim. They appear to be holding up, but I am watching them carefully and may need to return them. This is the first time that I have ordered from Tredz and I'm disappointed by the careless packing.

    Grippy yet light but sluggish

    These tyres do what they say on the tin. They are good hybrid tyres for gripping on a variety of surfaces. Pleasingly light. Downside is they are noticeably more sluggish than my, now 7 yr old, plain Conti Contacts.

    No punctures

    This is my second pair. The first lasted several years and several thousand miles and I don't remember a puncture. I bought the first because I was getting punctures all the time due to the commuting route I ride past a skip lorry depot which spills grit and ground glass on the road. These roll easy with the slick road contacting centers, but grip well on softer surfaces too due to nobby sides. They looked like they would last forever, but eventually the sidewall started to split. No complaints from me, I've never had better tires and thats why I came back for more.
