Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x25 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

    Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x25 Road Tire:

    As a 6 foot 5 inch 235 lb. rider, this is the longest lasting, most puncture resistant, and comfortable tire that I have ever purchased. I ride between 6000 and 7000 miles/year in the Hill Country of Texas and change my rear tire once every 9 months.

        These are great tires for flat free riding. I ride a couple thousand miles a year and have been very happy with Ultra Gatorskin tires. They are easy to mount and to remove. I've had one flat (glass shard) in the last thousand miles.

        Gatorskin for the win

          Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x25 Road Tire:

          I was having a horrible time with flats. It was almost getting to the point where I was discouraged from cycling, since there was a 50/50 chance I'd be changing a flat during my ride. I noticed the Gatorskins had positive reviews for flat prevention, so I gave them a try and they worked great. My issues with flats went away.

            Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x25 Road Tire:

            I replace two to three of these tires on my back wheel each year. The front goes until there are too many slits and gouges, usually over a year, becoming a magnet for those pesky little rocks and bits of glass. I've been riding 7,500 to 10,000 miles a year since I started using these tires. Do the math, they last.
            Still get flats but most likely not until the tire is ready for retirement.

                    I just replaced a Gatorskin tire that had over 2,200 miles on it -- about 1,400 trail and 800 road miles. VERY PLEASED with this product.

                      We have two sets of bikes, one for gravel packed trails and one for road biking. Both sets of bikes are fitted with Gatorskin tires for the past 5 years. Dependable and long lasting. No cons.

                        3,400 miles on my set this season. I rotate them front to back every 500 miles. No flat tires, corner well, I run hire pressure and, do not look like I will replace them anytime soon. Very satisfied.
