almost a roadie, but with gravel pretensions

I replaced the stock Vee Zilent 35 mm tires on my Diamondback Metric 1 after approx. 4K km with two of these Continental Contact Urban 35mm.

The new tires roll much more like road tires. It is noticeably less sluggish pedaling the biggest chainring/smallest cog combo.

But the previous tires had "shoulders" for extra grip. That made going over paths of large, loose gravel easier and gave better cornering on all unpaved surfaces. I like to wander off the paved paths sometimes and I miss the secure feeling offered by the more "gravelly" tires.

The Contacts also amplify the hard-tail character of my bicycle; at full inflation, it can be a bumpy ride. All in all, they are as urban-oriented as advertised.

The grip of the compound seems very dependable, but I've only put 300km on them so far so I can't answer with regard to long-term durability.

If I only rode on city pavement/concrete/asphalt I would definitely get these; because I like to wander onto meadow and some loose gravel I might go for something slightly more gravel-friendly next time.

On the other hand, I have a feeling that as I get used to these in off-road settings, and depending on how long they last, I might just find that these are all I need.

cheers
