Continental Sprinter Gatorskin Tubular Road Tire
In response to the overwhelming popularity of Continental's Gatorskin clincher, the Sprinter Gatorskin Tubular tire has all the black carbon for increased durability and better rolling resistance, and DuraSkin anti-cut fabric to stave off flats and reduce wear. Also, this tubular version is ultra high pressure (170 psi), but sticky and supple to keep you hauling for training or racing on more brutal surfaces--inspired by surfaces like the Paris Roubaix, this Gatorskin is tough and efficient.
  • 180 TPI is supple and super strong
  • Designed for efficiency and durability on not-so-forgiving surfaces
  • Ultra high pressure and black carbon flecks keep rolling resistance ultra low and durability high

    Comments about Continental Sprinter Gatorskin Tubular Road Tire:

    Bought the Sprinter Gatorskins for durability. I tried the regular sprinters before. One of the set flatted before 200 miles - peeled them off and replaced with Vittoria's. Gave the unflatted one to my son, who bought another sprinter and has raced and trained on that set all season. Thought I would try again with the Gatorskins. Stretched and glued them up - very happy with ride, but had one flat after about 200 miles. No visible penetration in either tire that flatted. I have ridden tubulars as primary racing and training tires from the 70's to early 90's, so I'm not a newbie. I quit buying Conti butyl tubes for my clincher wheels years ago after failure at the seam that joins the two ends of the tube led to frequent flats. Maybe same problem here, but when 1/3 expensive tires flat before the tread wears I am reticent to purchase again.

      Comments about Continental Sprinter Gatorskin Tubular Road Tire:

      I purchased these tires as I needed new ones due to purchasing new Carbon rims. It is imperative that tires have removable valve stems, AS THESE DO. Many of the cheaper ones do not and can not be used on any rims of 35mm and up in width. Excellent all around tire an it is made in Germany.

        Comments about Continental Sprinter Gatorskin Tubular Road Tire:

        Great tire for my needs in all ways. I do not race, so weight is not an issue, particularly since the durability benefit far outweighs acceleration advantage. Traction, road feel, confidence in the tire . . . all there in spades.
