Great training tires!!!
August 13, 2011
If you are out there training for triathlons or cycling events then there is no better tire to use than Continental Gatorskin tires. These tires are built to last and have great puncture protection. I use the 700x25c for better handling and more comfort. When you are training you want a solid tire but when I race I switch to the faster rolling Continental GP4000s. Definitely recommend these tires for everyday training or commuting.

Great for riding in the desert
August 11, 2011
I've been using these tires for years, they are perfect for riding in the desert and avoiding thorns giving you a flat. I am notorious for riding straight through piles of glass, and I very rarely flat. Overall they are great if you want a durable training tire. The only cons are it takes some muscle to get the tire on for the first time, and the weight. I also have had 2 sidewall failures but I replaced the bad tires with new gatorskins.
