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

        Haven't road tested this particular tire yet, but I've had a similar Continental tire on my back wheel for over two years. Haven't had a puncture during that time, which is why I bought this one when the front tire wore out. Now what do I do with the spare tubes I bought on sale?

              I've used these tires for years because I don't get stuck on the side of the road. I can go thousands of miles on these without getting flats. I don't buy any other tire.

                I have used Gatorskins for 4 years of commuting. Over 16 thousand miles. They are great tires, very puncture resistant. I don't know why I bought the wire beads. They are very hard to mount.

                    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.
