Conti Ultra Sport tires5
These tires were a great deal. I love the Continental 4000S tires and will definitely give these ones a try. PBK is the best !!Report this review
I use others but they are too expensive because I ride my bike a lot so I found this type(good price). However, I think quality is also good :)Report this review
Conti make great tyres and the Ultra Sport is just the job for training, sportives and racing- especially when discounted significantly.Report this review
Decent back up tyre from a quality manufacturer. Folds easily to carry on rides as is very thin, this could be its downfall for longevity hence it has dropped a starReport this review
Good training tyres5
Very nice and the price is very reasonable. Highly recommended.Report this review
A surprisingly good tire5
Tires that come with your bike are usually low thread count, wire bead, high rolling resistance. When I got these on my bike however, they were nice, durable, easy rolling, and they're inexpensive to replace. Mounting them, another thing that conti does well is that you can just roll tires on, even when they're brand new. Really great set of tires to just eat up the mileage without breaking the bank.Report this review
These were stock tires that came with my road bike. They lasted 2400km. They're pretty durable at first but soon deteriorate quite quickly. I started getting flats every alternate day once they started to near the end of their life.
The grip in the wet is pretty average although I haven't had any slips/mishaps. I've taken some pretty nasty corners in the wet the tires seemed to keep me upright.
The sidewalls rapidly deteriorated after maybe 1500kms (in my case).
Overall, an average tire.
Ultra Sport, yeah right?2
I bough set of these (23mm - black) to replace stock tires that came with my Langster. I though that these would be good value for the money and I also hoped they will last a bit longer that the stock tires that I was replacing (lasted ~1500km).
I didn't make too much research on these since I have always though that Continental knows their thing, also name "ultra sport" sounded quite cool =)
Unfortunately the reality is that these tires seems to be eating small stones like a vacuum cleaner. It's seems like the rubber compound that is used in these tires is just way too soft and fragile to withstand outdoor road life. Furthermore there is no puncture protection layer (I though this is standard in all tires now a days) in side to tire, so these small stones will end up killing your inner tube really easily. I have driven about 700km with these now and both tires are full of small holes and small cuts. I have had 7 punctures so far which is quite much more that I'm willing to tolerate.
So in case you are planning to use our tires outdoors I would recommend something with proper puncture protection =) Maybe GP 4000S model would be better?
Terrible tires. Stay away1
These came stock on my bike. Rode about 50 miles total. Check my bike the next day and both tires are flat. I inspect the tires and remove 6 small pebbles that got embedded into the tires and a small piece of glass. There is no puncture protection and I bought a set of Michelin Krylion Tires to replace them. If you enjoy picking debris off your tires and patching tubes or ride your road bike not on the street go ahead and get these tires. If you like riding your bike on the road go look at something else.Report this review
good only on very smooth pavement2
Decent grip while cornering, average rolling resistance and very, very prone to punctures. Passing 100psi of air pressure sidewall will get "bubbles" period. They are good only for one week of riding after you pick your new bike. I live in Denver, Colorado, and this tire cannot handle Rocky Mountain roads, period !!!!Report this review
