Continental combined a 180 tpi casing, a layer of Duraskin (Polyamide nylon fabric) and then topped it off with a Kevlar-reinforced layer. The result--the Continental Ultra Gatorskin road bicycle tire is one fast-rolling, high-mileage road bike tire with flat protection second to none.
Minimal resistance means minimal wasted energy due to friction
Long-wearing profile is great for training and riding every day
Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin 650x23 Road Tire:
Here in Denver, CO it's goat-head season (thorns) and the urban trails are full of them. Prior to getting these tires I could have as many as two to three flats a day! These tires, in combination with thorn-resistant tubes eliminates this threat. This combo weighs a little more but not enough to worry about. I ordered the 650's for my wife's bike and Nashbar was the only place to have them in stock. The delivery was quick.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
