Using their vast car tire expertise, Continental created the Top Contact Winter II - a snow tire for your bike. Grip in snow, slush, and on wet roads is assured due to a unique tread pattern that produces hundreds of gripping edges. Since you'll be using this tire in cold temperatures, Conti has formulated their rubber compound to remain supple for unparalleled winter traction. There's also a flexible PolyX Breaker for awesome flat protection. Plus, the Top Contact Winter sports Continental's Reflex sidewall striping for safety.
PolyX Breaker puncture protection brings Contintental's know-how of automobile tires into the bicycle market. Polyester fibers are woven tightly underneath the tread, and the resulting high fabric density helps resist flat tires. In addition, the rolling resistance is not adversely affected.
