Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x23 Road Tire
Nothing puts a damper on a ride quite like getting a flat. For ultimate peace of mind regarding puncture protection, plus a tread compound that's built for mega-miles, look no further than the Continental Ultra Gatorskin road tire. Engineered for a superb level of toughness, the Ultra Gatorskin combines a 180 tpi casing, a layer of Duraskin (Polyamide nylon fabric) from bead-to-bead for cut resistance, and finally a Kevlar-reinforced layer beneath the tread to ward off punctures. The durable carbon black compound is designed to last for the long haul and its slick center section keeps you rolling smooth.
  • Long-wearing tread compound is great for training and riding every day
  • Bead-to-bead Duraskin layer protects the tire's casing from cuts
  • Kevlar layer beneath tread provides excellent puncture resistance
  • Slick center tread section rolls super-smooth
  • Folding bead shaves grams

      Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x23 Road Tire:

      I've read the comments on these tires and have to say so far I am pleased with them. I had over 3,000 miles on my Bontrager R1 tires and am hoping to do as well, if not better with these tires. Time will tell.

          Mounting was easy. They are supple and provide good rolling quality. No problem with flats. They are directional tires, so make sure you mount them in correct direction.

            Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x23 Road Tire:

            These tires combine excellent road feel and durability. Plus they look cool! If I could only have one tire this would be it. There are racier tires out there, but for real world day to day mileage, hacking it out on trashed roads, Gatorskins cannot be beat.

                        I love the compound used to manufacture this tire. It is the grippiest tire I've used to date and love the protection of the Kevlar belt. Perfect!

                          Ride 80 to 100 mpw in good weather and at least once a week in winter. Gatorskins take the worry out of being by yourself and several miles from home. Love not having flats

                              After first 3 rides, very pleased with the performance of this tire. It mutes and rolls smoothly over cracked blacktop surfaces and has a confident feel. It is more expensive than the average tire, but I expect it to perform better and last longer.
