The Continental Ultra Gatorskin Road Bike Tires combine a 180 tpi casing, a layer of Duraskin (Polyamide nylon fabric) and then top it off with a Kevlar-reinforced layer. The result--some fast-rolling, high-mileage road bicycle tires with flat protection that's second to none.
Minimal resistance means minimal wasted energy due to friction
Long-wearing profile is great for training and riding every day
Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x25 Road Tire:
I started using these tires after getting a flat at an inconvenient time (when is convenient? :-) They have never flatted. I have them on 3 bikes. I use the 700x25 on my road bikes and 700x28 on my cyclocross. They have a low rolling resistance and are not heavier than most tires of the same size. I usually get new ones after 3500 miles or so because I don't want to push my luck!
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
