According to the info I could find, the Schwalbe is within 5g of the Continental, and generally, tires are +/- 10g of spec anyway. So, we can say they pretty much weigh the same. Both are heavier touring oriented tires, relatively low thread count, puncture resistant casings, etc. I really doubt riding the two tires back-to-back, you're going to notice a difference. That said, in general, Schwalbe seems to be a cut above Conti quality-wise, but you do pay a bit more as well.
