Continental Ultra 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 Ultra Gatorskin road tire. Engineered for a superb level of toughness, the Ultra 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

            These Gatorskins are replacing a set of 'skins that I had on my Cannondale road bike. I got aprx 3300 miles out of my tires on not the best roadways in PA. Zero complaints...Stick with what works.

              Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x23 Road Tire:

              I have used this model of tires for perhaps twenty thousand miles. The frequency of punctures is way down since I started using the Gatorskins. At this very moment, I have a rear tire that has had a chunk removed all the way down to the belts, perhaps due to glass or the gravel they periodically spread over the paved roads in this area. However, I have not had time to change the tire since I noticed it, and have ridden about a hundred miles without incident. (It gets changed tonight.)

              It is not a racing tire, but it is lighter and has lower rolling resistance than other tires that are advertized as being very tough.

              The tire is more expensive than a lower-end tire of similar weight. But in my case it ended up being cheaper per mile than most I have used because the Gatorskins last a lot longer. And the Gatorskins also save on replacement tubes!

              I strongly recommend the folding version over the version with the wire bead. Not only is it lighter but it is very much easier to get on and off the rim.

                I have been riding for nearly 35 years and these are the best tires that I have ever purchased.
                Have had these same tires for 2 years now and have put over 3500 miles on them and I have yet to get a puncture or pinch flat. It may be just dumb luck, but I don't believe it. Tires that I have had in the past gave pinch flats riding over the smallest of debris. Riding is a lot better when you don't have to fix a flat on the side of the road. Great tires.

                    4000 + Miles and not 1 Flat!! I just purchased a new set but still have some life in the old ones. A little Rolling resistance but the trade off is worth it. I got mine on an awesome nashbar sale so I got them early Im sure I can finish this season on the older ones These tires are downright indestructible!

                      Not only do they have superb puncture resistance, but they corner very well though you might have to wear a hard surface off of the outside first.

                      In the last three years I have had many punctures of other tires and only one Gatorskin - a wire from a steel belted tire that was worn into the belts.
