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 have been riding for nearly 35 years and these are the best tires that I have ever purchased.
    Have had these same tires for 2 years now and have put over 3500 miles on them and I have yet to get a puncture or pinch flat. It may be just dumb luck, but I don't believe it. Tires that I have had in the past gave pinch flats riding over the smallest of debris. Riding is a lot better when you don't have to fix a flat on the side of the road. Great tires.

        4000 + Miles and not 1 Flat!! I just purchased a new set but still have some life in the old ones. A little Rolling resistance but the trade off is worth it. I got mine on an awesome nashbar sale so I got them early Im sure I can finish this season on the older ones These tires are downright indestructible!

          Comments about Continental Ultra Gatorskin 700x23 Road Tire:

          Not only do they have superb puncture resistance, but they corner very well though you might have to wear a hard surface off of the outside first.

          In the last three years I have had many punctures of other tires and only one Gatorskin - a wire from a steel belted tire that was worn into the belts.

            I purchased a set of these just under 2 years ago and finally had a flat with one of them. No complaints though, I had over 4,000 miles on them.

            They are the best!!

              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.

                    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.
