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:

    These replaced a set of Hutchinson Fusion 3 Kevlar Pro Tech that were well worn and starting to be prone to flats. The Gator Hardshell seem a bit slower, but very nice ride and I hope they will be more durable on the rough, hazardous roads here. Nice tire, and a good value when You can catch them on sale here.

        Comments about Continental Gator Hardshell Road Tire:

        This is probably the best all around tire on the market. It long lasting and truly puncture resistant. I had a massive tube failure due to hitting a large bolt on the road and the tube totally blew out, and the tire was not damaged at all. Really amazing.

          These were a tremendous upgrade over the stock tires. Handle better, are faster, even went up in size 28 to 32 so cushier on my bottom too! So far I could not be happier! Hope they wear as long as the reviews I read making my purchase decision say.

          No issue to install barely used a lever on one and palmed the other one on no problem.

              Hard training rides in hilly rough roads. Have not flatted using this tire in over 8000 miles. I have a new pair on the bike and there is enough left in my 1st one to use as a backup.

                Comments about Continental Gator Hardshell Road Tire:

                This is the first Hardshell I have ridden, but I have been on Gatorskins for several seasons. I put it on the rear, as I was concerned with it's cornering ability due to the addition of puncture protection on the sidewalls, but those concerns were unfounded. I have taken it to it's limits (and a bit beyond!), and it has behaved very consistently with the original Gatorskin. When my front tire needs replacement, I will likely put at Hardshell on it as well.
