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

    Comments about Continental Gatorskin Road Tire:

    These are the only tires I run anymore on my Specialized and Cannondale road bikes. The original factory tires were substandard and I used to get WAY too many flats riding in the city. After switching to these Continental Gatorskins, flats still occur, but very seldom. I learned a long time ago that Nashbar tends to have the best prices and the quickest shipping. That's an unbeatable combination.

        Comments about Continental Gatorskin Road Tire:

        The 700X28's that I bought ride super smooth and are wearing well with no flats after a few hundred miles. If Installing them the first time was a struggle, so If I had to do it again, I might get the wire bead models.

        Comments about Continental Gatorskin Road Tire:

        The 700x32 is a great tire for urban/street riding, particularly in areas with lumpy pavements. Have used on a cross bike for city riding and have been impressed with their durability and toughness. With no functional tread, you need to be careful on dirt, gravel, loose surfaces.

        Comments about Continental Gatorskin Road Tire:

        You have to accept some modest additional weight and rolling resistance, but these almost eliminate flats in all but the most extreme situations. Great for training or long rides >40 mi. where you don't want to bother with fixing flats.

          So, I started the winter on GP GT. They ride great, almost like summer tyres. But they get cut up like crazy and absorb broken glass. After 500 miles and too many flat repairs, I'm back to gators. They are great in the wet, resist glass and flints, but ride harsh. At this point, they are the only thing I will put on the winter commuter.

            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.

                Will use tires on older touring bike for multiday trips on rails to trails and rural roads. basically for credit card touring trips.

                    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.
