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

    Comments about Continental Gatorskin Road Tire:

    I needed new tires on my commuter and I wanted a durable tire. I also didn't want one that weighed too much. This fit the bill. I've been using these since the spring, ~4000 miles, and they have worked really well for me. I've not gotten a flat yet. The front tire looks to have lots of life left, the rear tire has a flat spot, but is still going strong. The only negative is that they don't roll quite as fast as an all out racing tire. Otherwise the grip is good and the longevity to weight compromise is really good. I just got a set to put on my new commuter bike.

        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.

            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.
