Continental Ultra Gatorskin Wire Bead 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

      Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin Wire Bead Road Tire:

      I am a regular biker and ride 2000 miles or so per year This is my second set of gator skins. I didn't need them yet since my first set is still going strong with about 1500 miles on them and not needing replacement any time soon. I bought another set because of the awesome deal at 25% off. My first set of gator skins are in such great shape I probably won't need these new tires until after next year.

            Looks like a tire that will last for years. Two cons... It's hard to find the rotation direction. Look clockwise from the Gatorskin, notice cross-hairs in a circle, 2-3 more inches clockwise there is an arrow raised and following the word Rotation. Good light, magnifying glass and readers! Fish-fin "arrows" will point in rolling direction. Also, inflation pressure not found on tire.

                  I placed these tires on my new Ultrega road bike. I ride some gravel and thought the OEM 23 mm tires to be too skinny for my 20 mi. daily route. Installation was no problem. I am running the rear tire at 85psi and front at 65 psi. Time will tell if they are as good as the Michelin Protek Max I had on my old bike (2500 mi without a flat).

                    The 25mm tire is very smooth rolling for a durable tire. I ride in the desert southwest where pavement temps are high and cactus needles on the roadway abundent. I have put over 3,000 miles on a set of tires without a flat!

                          I bought Marathon Plus 28s. They were bomb proof, but weigh a ton, and I was noticably slower. I replaced them with Gatorskins 28s. I still get a smother ride, but they are much lighter - less than half the weight. I am saving the M+ tires for touring, and use these for daily rides. Going to 28s was a good thing.

                          This is my first time using this tires, and so far they seem great.

                          In the month that I've had them, I've done close to 500 miles with them, with no problems whatsoever.

                          Currently, I am using latex tubes. I've noticed a significant improvement on ride quality over my old tires and have not experienced any punctures.

                            I bought these tires in April for a cross country cycling trip i went on this summer. Between training rides and the summer trip, i put over 5,000 miles on these tires, and only had one flat! I'm actually back to buy another set cause mine are just about shot, and i'm doing another trip this coming summer. These tires are amazing!
