Boast­ing a de­cid­edly sporty tread pat­tern, the Con­tiTwist is a mod­ern look­ing tyre and one I have per­son­ally used over sev­eral years. In­trigu­ingly, the front and rear tyres are de­signed so that, when fit­ted, the tread pat­terns are op­pos­ing. I can only as­sume that this has been done to help the rub­ber more ef­fec­tively and ef­fi­ciently dis­perse road wa­ter as and when con­di­tions de­mand.

What­ever the weather though, I have al­ways found these tyres con­sis­tently good in a va­ri­ety of con­di­tions. The tread pro­file does lend it­self well to pre­cise and ef­fec­tive cor­ner­ing per­for­mance when you’re in a hurry. Thank­fully, even in wet and gen­er­ally slip­pery con­di­tions they re­main rea­son­ably grippy and in­spire a cer­tain de­gree of con­fi­dence that you’re not go­ing to come a crop­per any time soon. These are a well-bal­anced op­tion.
