Continental TopContact Winter II Snow Tires
Snow tires are standard equipment on cars, and even for us that live in cities with serious winters studs are relatively seldom seen. Tires with deep tread designed to hook up in snow are the gold standard for most—it only makes sense that the same concept would work on bikes. The Continental TopContact Winter II snow tire is just that, a studless winter tire that rides reaosnably well on bare pavement without sounding like a tank and hooks up in the snow. Available in 26 x 1.9″ and 700 x 37c, the secret is the deep tread and the tons of surface area in contact with the snow and the hundred of edges of the aggressive tread digging in.
