The Continental GatorSkin is a famously durable training, touring or commuting road tire featuring a combination of three flat protection technologies. 60 TPI per layer (3 plies for 180 TPI total) in the casing preserves ride feel while remaining tough. Bead-to-bead layer of DuraSkin woven fibers helps prevent cuts especially in the vulnerable sidewall. PolyX breaker directly under the tread on the Gatorskin adds puncture protection where most flats occur. Continental includes a special high carbon compound for longer tread life. Black tread with black/brown DuraSkin side wall.

Available Sizes:

  • 700c x 23mm (23-622 ISO, 280g, 120 max. psi)
  • 700c x 25mm (25-622 ISO, 300g, 120 max. psi)
  • 700c x 28mm (28-622 ISO, 360g, 116 max. psi)
  • 700c x 32mm (32-622 ISO, 380g, 102 max. psi)

Note: Continental has 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.

Great Tires
by Anonymous
Little Rock, AR

I got my tires in quickly after ordering. They were easy to install and the ride is smooth. After a couple a hundred miless they still have the bead in the center so I expect them to last a really long time. I will be back for other equipment from you as I need it.

I like them
by Anonymous

Without being technical I seem to have far fewer flats with these. I actually wear them out first. Are they the fastest tires you can buy, probably not. But Im not that fast either and I use them for training, not racing.

One tough tire
by MeaghanUT

These tires are great, durable, all weather tires that I use for commuting to work everyday. The wider surface area and thicker tires makes for a very comfortable ride. I've used them for over a month now and am very happy. Overall, I would say great purchase!

Gatorskin tires have worked well since installing them 2 weeks ago. 250 ish miles and no difficulties, even on gravel detour!

These were installed on my road bike about 2 weeks ago. Standard installation procedure was smooth and they have ridden well, even with a forced 3 mile gravel detour that was unplanned. No flats....

Gatorskins Always
by SallyB

The Continental Gatorskins are not only light but are extremely durable. I have been logging 1500 miles per road tire and could probably get more miles if I waited to have a flat before replacing them. Also, they seem to retain air more readily then other road tires I've tried. Gatorskins are now my tired of choice for ride comfort, and confidence.

Continental 4000 tires give great mileage and safety on the road.
by Anonymous

There is nothing I dislike about these tires. What I like is the fact that with front to rear rotation, I get about 10.000 miles per tire. That is why I think the value is so good.

Solid product. They have held up well to fairly rough roads where other tires have failed.

I have been riding 300 - miles a month. Gatorskins have held up well and been comfortable during long rides. Sand and light gravel are prevalent on the roads I am typically riding on. I have full confidence in the product to hold a grip and last over unforgiving terrain.

The tires seem OK but they're really hard to install.
by John
Cycling Enthusiast
Minatare, NE

I had to buy a special tool (a bead jack) to get these tires mounted. The tool fits in my little triangle frame bag, but I don't look forward to having to change a tire on the road, which will inevitably happen . Bad enough in the shop. I like to ride in the evening, but now I have to leave home earlier to be sure there's enough daylight to get a tire on.

If you want tires that will go on easily on the road, look elsewhere for them.

by bicycle bill

I commute daily in Chicago. I have 700 x28s on my cyclo cross bike. I typically inflate at 100 psi. The tires are not puncture proof. This week some tiny construction shrapnel found its way in. The tires are good against road glass but not metal pieces. Pick your routes carefully.
