The Continental Sport Contact II is an almost slick touring bike tire that looks a bit like their top of the line Competition tubular road bike tire. I've been digging into Continental's touring bike tires and, together with the expensive Top Contact II, this should be their fastest touring bike tire. The Sport Contact comes with a hard wearing tread compound, 3/180 TPI casing, and a double layer of Safety System anti-puncture material under the tread.
The tread pattern of the Sport Contact isn't the typical tread pattern you'd expect from a touring bike tire. Because the "micro-diamonds" have a height of just 0.5 mm, I expect the tread in the center of the tire to wear down quickly resulting in a slick center part of the tire. This doesn't mean the tire is fully worn. I feel it should have had at least two tread wear indicators as the thickness measurements (see below) indicate this tire should have close to 2.5 mm of rubber to wear down before the tire needs to be changed.
