Very comfortable

Much more comfy than a standard road tyre but still fast rolling. I put these on my 2019 specialized diverge adventure bike and so far it’s been brilliant. Definitely worth considering if you are looking for more comfort

Pros

  • 42c is very comfortable
  • Fast rolling

Cons

  • Won’t fit every bike so check your clearance

Comfortabele, soepele band

Deze Contact Speed heb ik gemonteerd in de plaats van Schwalbe Marathon Green Guard. De Schwalbes zijn heel oncomfortabel, zwaar en hebben totaal geen grip off-road. Deze Contact Speed zijn een verademing. Comfort is veel beter, mijne zijn 42mm breed en ik pomp ze op tot 40psi. Eén band is ongeveer 200gr lichter dan de Schwalbe en de fiets voelt hierdoor minder zwaar en log aan. Zelfs op zand- of modderige wegen is de grip behoorlijk ondanks het vlakke profiel. Ik rij meestal op asfalt wegen maar ik heb geen schrik om ook de bossen in te gaan als het moet. Met de Schwalbe was dit uitgesloten. De montage was heel makkelijk. Gewoon met de hand erop kunnen leggen. Het enige waar de Schwalbes waarschijnlijk beter in zijn is lekbestendigheid. Met beide banden heb ik nog niet lekgereden. Dus een fijne zachte band met lichte off-road capaciteiten.

Pros

  • Comfort
  • Soepel
  • redelijke grip off-road
  • prijs
  • Makkelijk op te leggen

Cons

  • Geen echte minpunten

Detailed product description

The SafetySystem Breaker layer consists of Kevlar and a strong nylon fabric. Puncture and rip resistant, but still light and flexible. Without more weight or more rolling resistance the carcass still protects against sharp objects and contributes to the durability of the tyre. Tyres with the SafetySystem Breaker are also very comfortable.
