A tough tire that just keeps going.

The Continental Gatorskin road tire features great durability and puncture resistance while still preserving a great ride feel. It can be used in a variety of situations including fast training, touring, and commuting. A layer of Continental's popular Duraskin anti-cut layer combined with the PolyX breaker under the tread help ward off flats. 60 TPI per layer casing (3 plies/180 total TPI) keeps the tire feeling supple. Carbon tread compound has a long wear life. Black tread with DuraSkin (black with brown cross hatching) side wall. Wire bead or folding bead.

  • 700c x 23mm (230g folding, 120 max. psi)
  • 700c x 25mm (250g folding, 120 max. psi)
  • 700c x 28mm (320g folding, 116 max. psi)
  • 700c x 32mm (325g folding, 102 max. psi)

    Note: Continental has recently added wear indicators to all Continental 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.

Wanted to try these tires and they went on sale so I grabbed them.

I put these tires on my Canondale hybrid. They replaced a pair of Avocet Cross tires that were 700x38. The Gatorskins are 700x35. It is a pleasure to ride these tires because they are less rolling resistance and they grip quite well on pavement and also stand up to dirt and gravel. To be fair, I must state that I also replaced the old rims. New tires, new rims right? They went on quite easily and my favorite part is when I roll my bike out of the garage for a ride, the tires squeak on the cement like a finger against a taught balloon. They also look nice on the bike which is a light blue frame, tan leather seat and black rims. I've only got about a hundred miles on them so far and I know I'll be rolling down the road for several more judging by many other cyclists who use them.

Awesome tire for remote touring!
by Bruno Gottski
Cycling Enthusiast

Not a race or hill climb tire, but it does exactly what it should for training & touring. It resists flats, rolls beautifully smooth & tracks perfectly. wear should be exceptional, with 115 miles on them, the front still has the little bit of excess down the middle... I can rub it off with my hand at this point but think I will get 3,000-4,000 miles on this set if I rotate every 500 miles. I suspect they may be heavier than my old Michelin Pro Race Service Course, but I could not take those out on rural highways without flatting. My eyes aren't perfect, & I installed the front with directional arrow in wrong direction. I'm leaving it until I flat because I think it couldn't matter since it is 80% slick. Looking at the tread, I think they got the arrows wrong, anyway... guaranteed you can't tell the difference on the road. Wonderful buy on a tough, great-performing tire for training & touring... perfect for me, I would even race them in a half or full Ironman event.

Size 28 Gatorskins for my Surly LHT
by George

Wanted to try some lighter and narrower tires on my Surly LHT touring bike. Off with the reliable, heavy Schwalbe Marathon Plus and on with the Gatorskins, which I've always used on my Road bike (23's). Great results - speed and comfort as well. Highly recommend Gatorskins!

Outstanding durability
by Anonymous

I have always been extremely satisfied with Continental tires. This particular style (Gatorskin) is such a great tire. I just completed around 1000 miles in two weeks circling my home state, Montana on a solo tour. Many of the roads had a lot of debris. In addition, I found myself on numerous sections of gravel roads. I had absolutely no issues or flats which is saying something considering some of the roads I was on. While these tires wouldn't be my choice for road racing and such, touring, training rides, and durability are where they shine.

Most durable tire on the market - even on a tandem!
by gloyboy

5 of 5 customers found this review helpful.

We ride a tandem and average 6K miles per year on Gatorskin 28C tires. Besides significantly improving the ride and handling of our tandem, we've had only one flat for the last four pairs of these tires (and that was due to a broken bottle in the middle of the road on a fast downhill). We get about 2k miles per tire, which is incredible for our 290 lb combined rider weight. We will continue to mount these durable and supple tires as long as Continental keeps making them.

Over 4K miles , not a typo
by JimmyEatsWheels
Cycling Enthusiast
Lawn Guy Land, NY

I have been using Continental Gatorskin 700c Road Tire (Folding) for several seasons now, on two road bikes and 3 sets of wheels. I have surpassed 4K miles on these more than once, tire pressure and front to rear rotation every 1K miles helps. Flats are very rare and only when I hit a HUGE pothole and double-flatted (and lost a set of rimes) did they fail me. Even then, with a slit in the side wall I was abled to get back home. I always get them on sale and have a back up pair in the garage at all times.

Perfect Commuter Tire!
by Fatherof3onMI

4 of 5 customers found this review helpful.

My favorite commuter tire is no longer readily available and I needed a replacement. So far so good with these Gators'. My concerns are durability for commuting at a reasonable price and these seemed like a nice option that did not require me to go with a heavier wire bead. People complain that they ride harsh. At over 100psi they were harsh. I am running 32's at about 90-95 psi and they are great! I weigh about 170lbs. and no pinch flat issues or any other flats so far. Price was good and let's see how long they last.

This tire has become my go-to tire for most of my yearly riding. I might have some GP 4000 II ready for race day, but the Gatorskin's are on for everything else! They do not puncture easily and honestly I cannot remember the last time I had a flat with one on these tires. I have 25's on my road bike and have 28's and 32's for my cross/gravel bike for added comfort and coverage.

This is a good there for all around training purposes. Rolling resistance seems minimal. It is puncture resistant. Only issue is that Conti's usually fight a bit snug, so changing them on the road is a bit more difficult.

I ran these for several thousands miles last year in the 32mm size, for training rides, commuting, gravel, and a two week loaded tour. No issues whatsoever, and not a single flat, especially remarkable given that i'm a 200 pound rider. Highly recommended.

Continental makes an excellent trainingtouring tire if high mileage and a low instance of flats are your preference. It comes in a variety of sizes so finding one to fill your needs is easy, even better when it's on sale.

High Mileage and No Flats
by AZrider
Cycling Enthusiast
Scottsdale, AZ
1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

If you would rather be riding than fixing flat tires, then these tires are for you. I get 8000 miles from a set of Gatorskins. I weigh 160 pounds, ride at 100 psi, and rotate tires front to rear every 2000 miles. I have not had a flat on the road in years, at least 25,000 miles. I do use slimed tubes, so I take a slight performance hit, but I like to be riding, not sitting by the road fixing a flat. These have been my only road tires for many years.
