Continental 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 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

    Comments about Continental Gatorskin Wire Bead Road Tire:

    I am a recreational rider and I ride most of my miles on the road. My annual average is about 2000 miles. Gatorskins are the most reliable tires that I have ever used. I would estimate that I experience 1-2 flats per year. My last two flats actually happened with the Bontrager tires that came on my new bike.

        If your looking at buying these then your not worried about the weight of these tires. These guys have held up so far. Ive only had them a couple weeks but so far so good. They are absolute rock pingers tho. Ive nevee had a set of tires that sling so many rocks.

          Comments about Continental Gatorskin Wire Bead Road Tire:

          I used these to replace my 30mm stock tires which were great for riding over road junk but felt too slow and heavy. Got these Gatorskins in 25mm and they are night and day different. I did happen to look at them closely last night and after 100 miles or so they already appear to be wearing more than I would have thought. Maybe its just the light I saw them in, time will tell. But I am very happy with them otherwise.

                Bought this tire based on reviews and description of product. Installed on my wife's bike. She likes the feel of them so far. Bought because we frequently encounter glass where we ride and had gotten flats. So far no flats. Read a review that indicated these were hard to install. Did not think they were any harder than other tires. Was able to install without using any tire levers, just my thumbs. Seems I always pinch the tube when I install a tire with levers :-(

                Comments about Continental Gatorskin Wire Bead Road Tire:

                These are the best tires for commuting. I have always ridden on Continental tires, the first set of Gatorskins I bought lasted around 4500 commuting miles before I replaced them. Then I couldn't find them and bought other continental tires which weren't as good, and only lasted half as long. So here I am back with the Gatorskins and couldn't be happier.

                  I have used these tires for about 300 miles and NO FLAT at all...These Gatorskins are really a "must have" for any road conditions. They also looks great and have a good traction in dry and wet conditions.
