Continental Gatorskin Road Tire
If you're at all serious about high-mileage training, cycle touring or bike commuting, the Continental Gatorskin road tire is made for you. With a durable carbon black tread compound, smooth center tread and tenaciously gripping shoulders, the Continental Gatorskin road tire rolls easily, yet delivers great all-conditions cornering performance. The special tread design is also less prone to picking up road debris. Combine that with the proven PolyX puncture-resistant breaker and DuraSkin anti-cut sidewalls, and you've got a tire that's going to last you an incredibly long time.
  • A durable, long-wearing tire for training, commuting or touring
  • DuraSkin-anti-cut fabric sidewalls
  • Carbon black tread compound for durability
  • PolyX breaker provides excellent puncture-resistance

      Comments about Continental Gatorskin Road Tire:

      I've been using Gatorskin 28s on our tandem for a few years. Once I got the inflation pressures right I stopped having pinch flats, and the only puncture flats I have had were from thorns in New Mexico. In my normal riding here in PA, not a single flat in over two years. I recently replaced one with the folding version which is a bit lighter, much easier to store or take on a trip, and went on the rim nicely.

          Comments about Continental Gatorskin Road Tire:

          Kentucky roads are varied with suprise debris, rumble strips, maybe the occasional mid gravel road to a secluded pasture to watch the deer feed. I have found these tires to be forgiving when i'm staring instead of watching out for glass,nails, wire. I have 3500 miles on a set and the tread pattern is still visible.

            excellent slick type tire. Great grip and I recommend using a wide a tire as you are comfortable with along with a commensurately wide rim.

            Comments about Continental Gatorskin Road Tire:

            I've got 4000 miles out of a Gatorskin on the front and over 3000 on the rear. My last rear never had a flat for 3000mi. The only reason for change after 3000 miles was that I had ridden the rubber off down to the woven poly layer.

            Rode St. Paul to Chicago and was the only rider in the group not to have a flat, all rode Conties but I had the only gatorskins. Just bought a set of 28s after riding 32c's for the last few years.

              Typical Gatorskin: lively ride, excellent handling. Wish psi limit was a bit higher.
