The popular GatorSkin tire is one of the most puncture proof tires around, making it an incredible training tire that provides serious protection without sacrificing feel or adding too much weight.

  • Puncture resistant Kevlar® directly beneath tread
  • Duraskin bead to bead sidewall protection
  • 180 TPI casing ensure a smooth ride
  • Wire bead
  • 120 max. PSI
  • 650c x 23mm (23-571 ISO)
  • 290 grams
  • Black with Duraskin sidewall

Note: Continental has recently added wear indicators to all Gatorskin tires. These small divots in the tread surface are intentional and are not a sign of a factory defect. Once the rubber wears to the point where the divots are no longer discernible, you'll know it's time to replace.

Never had a flat on the road. I have had one while parked at home, was it he cat not sure They are very hard to get on the first time but they stretch over time. Tire construction, uniformity, traction are all good on dry pavement. I cant speak for wet or damp road conditions. Wish I could find a 25c version of this tire

A great all-a-round tire
by DRDave

Overhauling a very small Cannondale with 650c I was surprised in the lack of good training tires. The Continental Gatorskin comes to the rescue. I've used Gatorskins in various sizes and they have never let me down. You can spend more on a training tire but you will be hard pressed to beat the Continental Gatorskin, flat protection you can count on.

Durable Says It All

When the last Gatorskin rear tire on my Bacchetta recumbent started to get threadbare, I checked the mileage and saw that it was an astounding 4300 miles. Usually they ready to replace at about 3300-3500 miles. In any case, that's the most durable tire I've used. The front tires are good for 6500-7000 miles.

I have been using these tires for years on my recumbent. I use them to reduce the number of flat tires and I am convinced that they help. My back tire has the majority of my weight so is more susceptible to flats. The only downside is that the wire bead means I can't use them as a backup tire on long rides.

I was looking for a tire to train on that would be worry free. This tire seems to be it. I have 900 miles on these tires now and other then the normal air check I don't have to worry about them.

Worst tire ever!
by HockeyFan

Bought this tire when i was experiencing a massive amount of flats with my old tire. This tire is worthless. It states that it helps by reducing the flats you may encounter, but i disagree. Every time i race, this tire fails me. Weather it is a pinch or it is a puncture, or an unknown cause, i get a flat. I know that one can not expect zero flats, but with a name like GATORSKIN i would think it would hold up. it does not. Save your money, and look for something else. This product does not work.

The choices for 650c tires is pretty limited and so far, these are the best I've found for the money. They are high pressure and relatively light and do a pretty good job of reducing flats from punctures.

Great tires for training or racing, when peace of mind flat protection is as important as going fast these tires are your choice, there are lighter tires but few can deliver this level of durability, cornering grip and speed in one great tire. So what are you waiting for, go kick some ashphalt and find out for yourself.

These tires provide low rolling resistance with good puncture protection. Great for riding around city parks and streets. Used with Continental Race 26 Light Road Tube 650c x 18-25 36mm Presta that weighs only 65 grams. Tires were inflated to 105 psi, midway between 95 psi min and 116 psi max rating of Gatorskin tire.

Great price on both tires and tubes during Black Friday sale!
