After thousands of miles of use over many years, the existing Continental tyres on my 'everyday' road bike had finally begun to wear thin. Looking around for replacement tyres that would be of a similar high quality, be hard wearing and offer decent grip I was astonished to find I could buy a pair of these Continental Ultra Sport tyres from ProBikeKit for less than the cost of a single lower quality budget tyre from my local bike shops! I used the special offer and discount codes readily available on line. The tyres were delivered within a day and I didn't have to make any journeys to collect them. Fitting these tyres has improved the ride of my bike immensely. They really do grip well, especially relevant in the current wet weather conditions and roll smoothly over the rougher road surfaces in my local area. Cornering feels much more secure, the smoother ride is more comfortable and the bike feels somehow faster and more lively when climbing than previously. The enhanced grip that is provided has improved the braking efficiency meaning I can ride faster but still feel perfectly safe. I'm really impressed by the difference that the low cost 'instant upgrade' of fitting the new Continental tyres has made to this bike. As an everyday commuter/training bike It now rides more like my more expensive race-oriented bikes. I really recommend this ptoduct. So far I have only covered about 300 miles but the tyres stilllook brand new, so long-term expectations are high..Report this review
Continental Ultrasport Road Tyre has an attractive tread design and a choice of coloured treads that can turn any race bike into a superb visual masterpiece. UltraSport tires make a stunning impact on every training ride and are ideal for newcomers to road. Definitely a stepping stone before a better tyre , a decent tyre for the price !!!Report this review
The purchase of Conti Ultra Sport tyres were made as they are an excellent brand and proven to have a very good expected mileage . I am very pleased with their ease of fitting , appearance and most of all their comfortable ' road feel '.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
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.
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?
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
