    Hi, Does anyone have experience with Continental "Contact" or "RIDE" style of tires? I currently have the Cross King CX 32mm on a 700C rim on a hybrid bike.

    I'd like to get faster tires if possible. The idea is to lose the knobs and have the tires more narrow, to get the speed. I'd still like tires that perform well on small gravel, dirt and perhaps softer surfaces. Comfort is important too.

    I'm likely looking at a 28mm tires based on what I've seen on Continental's site.

    Does anyone have a recommendation on a City/Trekking tire that might meet my needs? I'm also open to other brands too, thanks!

    I’ve been quite happy with Conti Sport Contact II.

    Thanks, That's one of the tires I was considering. How well do they perform off road?

    Depends a bit on the width, and the surface you run on. They’re not horrible on firm surfaces but doesn’t offer much traction on sand, mud or slick grass.
