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:

      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.

                  I am hoping these tires wear as well as the Gatorskin Ultra wire bead! I prefer the flex bead because they are usually easier to mount and dismount, (especially in cold weather) and save a little weight at 230 grams. I purchased these tires when Nashbar had them on sale. Very good deal! I have used other models of the Continental brand tires for several years with no problems! Very good quality!

                    I roll around 5,000 - 6,000 miles a year on Chicago roads as a cat 4/5 racer. These tires do a great job in dealing with the amount of debris on the Chicago roads. I usually swop out for a new set every spring. I think I had maybe 2 flats all of last year and one was due to a pinch flat that couldn't be avoided. From a weight standpoint they might be a little heavier than a true racing tire, but if your spinning on these every day for training or commuting I highly recommend. Most of the cyclist that work at most Chicago bike shops also recommend and ride them as well. Good Luck!
