Continental Contact Urban Tyre in Black/Reflex 16 x 1.35" (Wired)

The Continental Contact Urban, is Continental's first tyre designed specifically for the Brompton and Brompton electric folding bicycle

This tyre is so good it is now (as of early 2022) an option on the Brompton P Line (Performance Line) bikes - and it's the favourite to run on our personal bikes
(We have a demo bike with these tyres if you want to come to Chobham and feel how nicely they roll)

The cross-woven Nylon construction of the tyre is robust while still being flexible, providing maximum puncture protection with the addition of minimal weight

Continental claim you will have reduced punctures from sharp stones and glass - we have ridden 1000's of kilometres on them, and so far it seems to be a good claim

This puts these tyres at Continental puncture protection level 6/7

Cycling on the City Pulse. Premium mobility for design enthusiasts. Urban profile packed with the latest technology. The perfect symbiosis between light-rolling and puncture protection is reflected in this speciality tyre designed for the City Jungle.

Tyre size: ETRTO 35-349 (16x1.35") - Brompton folding bike size

Tyre pressures:

  • minimum - 65psi / 4.5 bar
  • maximum - 116psi / 8 bar

Contact Urban Tyre Features:

  • Directional tread with low rolling resistance
  • Fast? Not a problem with approval for E-Bikes up to 25km/h
  • Payload: 71kg (max) per tyre so equates to a 142kg rider
  • Weight: 275g
  • Urban tyre
  • PureGrip compound
  • SafetyPro Breaker

We made this short video on the features of this Continental tyre and the associated inner tube

Inner tube:

Contental Compact 16" inner tube 
(We found that it works just as well - if not better - with the Schwalbe AV4 and/or Impac tubes for standard Brompton rims)

If you have a Brompton P Line or T Line with the new rims - you will need the Presta valve version or the Schwalbe SV4 tube
From the factory Brompton fit this tyre with their own version of the SV4 inner tube

Designed in Germany
Made in China 



Works well on a Brompton

Brompton-branded, original tyres were a bit skittish so after a few unpleasant situations, I changed to these Urbans and found a huge difference; difficult cambers, grit deposits and wet corners can now steered into without concern. The icing on the cake is an annoying whine that got louder with increasing speed, appearing when a Swytch motor was fitted, has now disappeared. The shop’s videos were the reason for buying here: informative, entertaining and confidence-inspiring. I’m a happy customer so will use Brilliant Bikes for future purchases.

    Hello, Do your continental urban contact 16" tyres come with orange continental lettering and logos or is everything on the tyres sidewall exclusively in silver? Am hoping to match these up with my bikes colour scheme and am aware of varying colours on these tyres for some reason. Many thanks for your help. Answer:
    The lettering is not orange, sorry. The images of the tyres on the website are photos taken of the part, and as you can see no orange to be seen.

    Hi, I will be replacing the Schwalbe One tyres on my Chapter 3 and was wondering if the height of these Continental tyres when fitted is higher than that of the Schwalbe Ones. I am concerned about mudguard clearance. Is your postage still free to N. Ireland? Answer:
    These fit the Brompton perfectly, we did a fitment and a review video on YouTube, links as follows: and Sorry a fee is charged for shipping to Northern Ireland

    Is it ok to fit a Continental Contact Urban on the front of my Brompton and keep a relatively new Swalbe Marathon on the back? Answer:
    Yes absolutely fine, it might not be as aesthetically pleasing but no reason not to do so

    Hi, is the reflective strip a tape like the Schwalbe tyres that can be peeled off please? Answer:
    The reflective strip would be very very hard if not impossible to peel away
