Continental Gatorskin 700x23 Road Tire
Nothing puts a damper on a ride quite like getting a flat. For ultimate peace of mind regarding puncture protection, plus a tread compound that's built for mega-miles, look no further than the Continental Gatorskin road tire. Engineered for a superb level of toughness, the Gatorskin combines a 180 tpi casing, a layer of Duraskin (Polyamide nylon fabric) from bead-to-bead for cut resistance, and finally a Kevlar-reinforced layer beneath the tread to ward off punctures. The durable carbon black compound is designed to last for the long haul and its slick center section keeps you rolling smooth.
  • Long-wearing tread compound is great for training and riding every day
  • Bead-to-bead Duraskin layer protects the tire's casing from cuts
  • Kevlar layer beneath tread provides excellent puncture resistance
  • Slick center tread section rolls super-smooth
  • Folding bead shaves grams

    Comments about Continental Gatorskin 700x23 Road Tire:

    I use this tire on my modified touring bike and have no problems keeping up with my road bike friends. After 10 plus years of riding long distances with my Gatorskin's, I know I will spend my time riding & not fixing flats. Anytime I'm on a ride in a new area, where I'm not sure of the terrain I will encounter, I always use the touring bike because if the tires.

        I have had a few set of these tires. They are my go to for 50+ mile rides. They are durable, resistant to punctures and such. If you need durable for road riding, this is the way to go.

            use this tire with latex or lite-weight tubes and reduce the rolling resistance. The difference between latex tubes and Nashbar light weight tube is the latex gives a more comfortable ride. Tube weight is about the same.

              This is my second set of these tires. The first set I got a good 4000 miles on them. I do distance riding and it's important to me not to have a flat tire. Highly recommend them to any serious rider.

                Comments about Continental Gatorskin 700x23 Road Tire:

                I really like these tires. They last a very long time, and are resistant to punctures. Goat head thorns can and do cause flats however. Not the most comfortable or fast ride, but for worry free miles in the rough stuff (like crud in the roads' shoulder) these are my go to tire. Folding bead mounts to rim fairly easily.

                    I have put these tires on 2 tri bikes and they work great. They wear like iron and hold up very well whether on the road or the trainer. They may not be the fastest tire out there, but since I can only afford one wheel/tire set up these are the ones I use to train and race.

                    Comments about Continental Gatorskin 700x23 Road Tire:

                    I occasionally try a different tire, but I find myself always coming back to the Gator Skin. The combination of good handling, excellent wear, and good puncture resistance makes this a nearly perfect tire for the avid recreational cyclist or commuter. If only they came in colors to match the bike....

                      This is the model recommended by serious cyclists. There are cheaper. There may be higher performing. Keep in mind that glass shards stick to wet tires, but not dry tires.
