  • Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Sport Contact 2 These seemed a bargain online, i normally use Schwalbe City Jet on my rebuilds but thought go for these for a change. Left them in the sun during last weeks mini heatwave and they went on without tyre levers. Give the bike quite a purposeful mean look compared to the City Jets. They are a fraction wider at 1.6 compared to the 1.5 City Jets. Role nicely and same price as numerous no name brands at local bike shops. If using for commuting then reckon the City Jets tread pattern might be a bit better in the wet but likely to be marginal. Halford's told me that these are ordered in from Continental Direct so imagine factory fresh stock which is good to have with tyres. Also explains 3/4 days wait for collect after clicking. Remember to choose correct tubes, resist using existing mountain bike size tubes if you want a slim fitting fast tyre. Halfords own brand 1.5 plus do the job nicely or the Michelin slim ones if you are feeling flush.. Happy and would choose again at this price. Interestingly have not seen these on any other bikes so a bit different as well. 20 August 2016

    Rated 4 out of 5 by fast tyres These are quick tyres have to wait and do more miles to judge puncture resistance 12 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply brilliant We have two Carrera Subway 8 family bikes, fitted with original Sport Contact tyres from new. That is from before 2005! We have only had punctures in the last couple of years so they really do deserve to be replaced. I have no idea how many miles we have done but both front and backs are now a little smooth with slight cracking on the sidewalls. I try to keep them at the max recommended of 65 psi. The fit is really tight but the grip is fine. On roads the resistance is minimal and we smile when we see those Fat Man nobblies struggling with the Devon hills. We use them on all terrains, but rarely do thick mud. The hardest is wet grass, but that is understandable. I would highly recommend this tyre for a long life commuting/town bike. Simply brilliant. 12 March 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Bike Tyre This tyre is great for use on road. Low rolling resistance and seems fairly hard wearing based on the ones I had before 18 June 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by A fast tyre for commuting I finally brought these tyres after months of cycling to work against a strong SW wind, and what a difference they have made. They offer very good grip in the wet and are fast with little rolling resistance. The only problem I had was they were a tight fit. . I'm sure they would have been easier to fit if the tyres had warmed up first. 04 March 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Feel After riding fo 2 years on my normal tyres I switched to these and the ride is awesome. I have now been able to gey my pressure up to 80psi and the tyres do stick to the surface well. Not too sure on puncture resistance as I have already had one puncture, can't say I wouldn't have had one on my other tyres though. Well worth swapping from standard Subway tyres to these, as they are a lot closer to a road bike. 27 October 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Slicks make all the difference I replaced my 'nobbly' cross country tyres with Halfords Continental Sport Contact Bike Tyre - 26" x 1.6". They are perfect for road use and much faster on the hills. Well worth the ten minutes it took to change them and great value too. 18 September 2014
