Continental Gator Hardshell Road Tire
First there was GatorSkin, a remarkably durable tire in its own right. Then came Ultra GatorSkin. Now, Continental takes durability beyond the limits with the GatorHardshell Road Tire. Like the Ultra GatorSkin, the Gator HardShell tire balances great ride characteristics with long life--and at an affordable price. The Continental GatorHardshell road tire features the bead-to-bead protection of DuraSkin, PLUS a Hardshell casing and extra-wide PolyX breaker. The result is a super-durable road tire that's about as puncture-resistant as a tire can get.
  • A super long-wearing tire that resists punctures and sidewall cuts
  • Casing reinforced with DuraSkin and Hardshell-anti-cut sidewalls for extra protection
  • Smooth-rolling center tread with shoulders optimized for cornering traction
  • Extra-wide PolyX breaker covers tread from shoulder-to-shoulder, providing enhanced puncture-resistance

      Comments about Continental Gator Hardshell Road Tire:

      This tire is almost bombproof. No, they are not the lightest tire out there but when you weigh 225 pounds like I do weight is not the issue. Nothing is worse than being in the middle of a ride and having a flat tire. These tires all but eliminate that possibility. I have been using them for two years and have not had a flat. The roads I ride on are not the smoothest and they have held up to everything I have put them through. Rotate front to back every season and they should last you a long time. Well worth the money, especially when on sale.

            As a young rider of 64 who rarely gets passed on the road, I need confidence that my tire will support those higher speed downhill challenges without mishap. A flat could be painfull. Past experience with the Gator has so far been flawless. Traction, roll resistance and comfort are all good. My next tire purchase will again be the Hardshell.

            Bought these in 25mm to replace some cheap 23s. The Kevlar bead makes them easy to take on/off. Rode in Bike MS this weekend (90 miles) along roads with trash and glass on the shoulders. No problems at all and seem to roll very easily.

            Comments about Continental Gator Hardshell Road Tire:

            First off, these are not puncture proof. But I've never had a catastrophic failure while riding. The only puncture I had was a slow leak, which is acceptable on a tandem. It lasted over 4000 miles on the front of a tandem so it wears very well. A little heavy, but the weight is worth it for a tandem.

            Comments about Continental Gator Hardshell Road Tire:

            I bought these to replace an original set of tires on my road bike as I was getting flats just about every ride. The monsoons are in full swing here in Arizona have been washing up a lot of debris on the trails. I ride about 30 miles at a time 2 times a week for fun/exercise/training and changing a flat is not what I call fun. I like these tires and like most things now a days they're a little expensive but so far seem worth it.

                Great tire. I ride primarily on city and mountain roads. My flats dropped dramatically on these tires. I am a tall rider and they last for about 1000 miles on the back tire and more on the front.

                  Comments about Continental Gator Hardshell Road Tire:

                  Albuquerque is very rough on bike tires: lots of goatheads and other thorns, along with human-left debris on streets and paved trails. It's been typical for me to get a flat about every third time I ride across town. So far these tires, along with puncture-resistant tubes, are holding up perfectly.
