Tire Evaluation – Continental E.Contact



According to Continental, the E.Contact is a bicycle designed for big e-bikes or lease bikes. They assert that this scooter to possess the maximum puncture and cut protection whilst still giving a minimal rolling resistance as a result of its dual coating of puncture resistance substance. The E.Contact includes the ECO 50 emblem and the ECE-R75 certificate that makes it appropriate for high-speed e-bikes around 50 km/h.

To attain the maximum puncture protection, Continental utilizes both a thick but soft coating of puncture resistance substance together using a SafetyPlus Breaker that’s a coating that’s more difficult to penetrate, but much thinner. When analyzing the E.Contact, I instantly noticed that this to be quite a stiff tire. In addition to this, the rubber chemical itself also seems to function as a quite difficult kind. I certainly feel that this scooter to be difficult to puncture, but is rolling immunity still okay?

All rolling resistance evaluations are conducted on our rolling resistance test system. Read our The Evaluation page for a detailed explanation about how we examine tires. Search for Bikespumps in order to know more about bike tire pump adapter.

Puncture resistance is great, but rolling resistance is extremely significant. Continental’s promise of offering the maximum puncture resistance while still rolling simple is not correct. I actually like Conti’s street bicycle and mountain bike tires, but can not suggest using their flying bike tires since they don’t impress. Employing the E.Contact on lease bikes may be a fantastic option as I am sure the hard chemical and powerful sidewalls will endure for ages.

It becomes dull, but only getting a set of Schwalbe Marathon (read review) or Marathon Plus (read review) appears to be the simple option from the tour/e-bike class) These tires offer a fantastic puncture resistance and also a considerably lower rolling resistance.
