Description

When The Going Gets Tough, GatorSkins Keep Going

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 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.

Features:

  • 700c wirebead clincher
  • PolyX Breaker casing
  • DuraSkin puncture protection
  • Three layers at 60 TPI
  • Available in 700x23-32mm
  • Intended use: road cycling, commuting, touring
  • Weight: 300g (700x25mm)
  • 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 wear and durability
by Anonymous

Have used Gatorskins on my hybrid and road bike with only a few flats in several years. I�ve got almost 6,000 miles only last (rear) tire

I find the wire bead 700x23 or 28 a little tough to change but that�s because I don�t need to do it very often

I HATE getting flats, so I went to 28 c Gatorskins and added an aftermarket puncture strip, extra thick tubes and sealant. I've pulled construction staples and mean-ass goatheads out of the tires and the tubes were fine. These tires laugh a such things. Overkill probably but nothing will slow you down more than a flat. I know they are a bit slower so I keep them at 110 psi, dropping to 95 psi if it's over 100 F outside. I ride a titanium bike so that smooths out the ride.

I've heard so much about these Gatorskin tires. I purchased a pair back in March of 2020. I currently have about 2000 miles on them and they are still looking great. Not much wear. I believe they are bullet proof. I Live in Southern Ca and the streets have so much glass and rocks. I have not had a flat at all. I would recommend these to all.

Well constructed and lasting. Easily traverses minor road hazards without negatively affecting function

I bought a respectfully used Bike on eBay. The tire that came on the bike had definitely seen better days. The decision to upgrade was more based on safety than looks. Those served me well, so I bought the same tires...again.

pretty good
by smoky

I found the quality to be very good. I have noticed my speed has decreased slightly since I got them, but I believe these are a little bit heavier than my previous tires. Good tire for the price and the price is good and the price is good. Thank you.

I bought two Gatorskin 700c about a week before a bike across NY (Empire State Ride) 560 miles Within four days I got three flats. I would have liked to return the same rear tire but I kept it due to the inconvenience. This tire has always served me well in the past OH well these things happen. Still a good tire I guess.

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.

Never have had a flat with a Gatorskin.
by Vintage Steel

I've used Gatorskins for years - never a single flat tire Not one, ever. Probably have put 50,000 miles on the dozens of these tires I've used over the years. I've run some of them down to the point there was virtually no tread left - still no flats.

Sturdy Tires
by Starck

The roads where I live aren't always smooth and the Gatorskin's have proven themselves. My only complaint is that they are hard to get onto a rim, especially when new. I always have to use a Tire Bead Jack.

I just road 330 miles on the GAP and C&O trails with every kind of surface from paved to crushed limestone to dirt and coarse gravel. For this trip I used 32mm tires and they were great.

I've tried many different types of tires from the modest priced ones to the very costly ones and none have measured up to the Gatorskins. I've completed 10 Ride the Rockies, and the only year I had flats (note the plural)was when I did not ride on Gatorskins. They are a bit heavier, but for the vast majority of riders this small additional weight will make little to no difference over 80, 90, or 100 miles. These are my go to tires and I fear not the broken glass, metal fibers, thornes, sharp rocks and all the other debris that come with riding. I ride urban, suburban and rural roads and trails and these work well on all surfaces. My current set have well over 4,000 miles and are still going strong.

I had been recommended these tires by a riding buddy for some time now. I have always been partial to Michelin tires. Well not any more. These tires hold the road better and have a much more durable sidewall than any other tire I have ridden. I have already put over 600 miles on these and they are doing great. I won't be buying anything else. I will be sending a pair to my dad when he runs his current tires down.

The 700x32s actually were 700x30 mounted up. Otherwise, these are a durable, high mileage tire. I've had about 10 of various sizes. At 200 lbs, on mostly chip-seal I often see 3-4K miles on the rear.

Performance-wise you give up nothing detectable vs 700x212325 and gain some rough road capability.

Amazing combination of performance and durability
by gcreason

Recently, I rode Continental Gatorskins (700 x 32 with folding bead) on a fully loaded touring bike from San Diego to Boston. About 300 miles of the trip were on crushed limestone bike paths, with a few miles of coarse gravel. The Gatorskins turned out to be an excellent choice. They performed superbly. I started out with a pair of new Gatorskins on the bike, and one new spare. Then I rotated the three tires so that each one had approximately equal wear. During the entire 3,500 mile trip, I had only one flat, which was due to a typical piece of wire from a disintegrated truck tire, picked up on an interstate, in a rain storm. At the end of the trip, all three tires were in good condition, with many miles left in them. The Gatorskins are reasonably light, with good puncture resistance and resistance to cuts. They provide a comfortable ride and good traction. In addition to this tour, I have used the Gatorskins for urban commuting, for years. These tires deliver amazing performance at a reasonable price.
