This tire is the bicycle equivalent of a snow tire. It's really weird tread plus it's soft compound make it great in the snow.
We have optimized the Top CONTACT Winter II further, refining it with a VectranBreaker anti-puncture belt beneath the tread, as well as giving it a foldable bead. This optimizes its weight reducing the rolling resistance thus increasing speed & handling characteristics.
The tread mixture is directly based on our PKW snow tyres. The tyre operates at its best at temperatures between –25° and +7° C. Where other mixtures no longer have any grip, the Top CONTACT Winter II Premium’s proven compound and tread pattern inter-meshes with snow and cold, wet surfaces very well.
Here the tyre is even more superior to spiked tyres which cannot straighten up on snow and shoveled streets. The reflective tyres provide additional safety in the dark winter nights and dusky days. Handmade in Germany! And you know the Germans make good stuff.
