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 put these tires on a Trek Domane bike, and usually cycle about 100 miles a week for exercise. The tires are great. These give a good ride, haven't had any flats and grip the road well. The only down side is the wire bead construction makes getting them mounted to the rim difficult. I thought about getting the ones without the wire bead, but liked the way the rim and tire "meld" when installed.

      Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin Wire Bead Road Tire:

      Went out for my usual 48 mile Saturday group ride. Noticed a shard of rock wedged in the tread. Dug it out with a knife and NO flat. Tried another brand of hard case tires late last year and literally sold them off the bike after two rides. They rode like a truck and would not corner like the Skins.

          Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin Wire Bead Road Tire:

          These are not the lightest ,but are very durable. I have become more of a training rider rather than road racer and found these tires to fit the bill. There are lighter tires out there for racing, but if you want a tire that will continue to hold up under most conditions , look no further. They have been very puncture resistant while riding on some dirt road races and generally anywhere else. The folding bead is lighter, but these work fine for general training.

                Probably jinxed myself now but have put over 1000 miles on these tires and no flats. Decent wear out oft them if you rotate them occasionally. Corner well and never had them lose traction.

                Expensive but worth it.

                  The Gatorskin tires are absolutely the most durable and smoothest riding tire. I do not use anything but these. I use 700 X 28.
