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.

A pleasant surprise, ride like a dream
by Richard K Remmen

I've always used Schwalbe Marathon plus, but my size was unavailable and I decided to try the Gatorskins. Made in Germany and seem to be excellent workmanship. My last pair of Marathon plus' lasted 5 years, but are heavy. If these Gatorskins last even three years that will make for an excellent value. They're relatively light weight, yet grip very well in tight turns and hold the road well on rain wet asphalt. I've ridden them hard for about a month with no sign of wear and no flats, despite riding over glass particles in the roads here.

The last one of these tires I used on a Easy Racer recumbent had 3400 miles on it when I decided it should be replaced for safety sake! It may have gone a lot further!

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.

I have had several sets of these tires and have had no problems with them at all.
by redtornado8
Cycling Enthusiast
Austin Texas

I do a lot of charity rides of 50 plus miles or more along with my practice rides of 30 plus miles and have had no problems with the tires. I have been up to speeds of over 40 miles an hour, on roads that have a lot of chip seal, and also roads with a lot of pot holes. The tires have show no signs of breaking down until I get about 2000 miles on them.

Bombproof Commuter Tires
by BigDumbGuy

Eugene, OR

I've been a daily commuter for two years now and have only had one flat tire... on a Bontrager Hard Case tire that my bike shop suggested as an alternative to the Continental Gatorskin! I immediately switched back to Gatorskins and expect I will never have a flat again.

I have been riding theses tires for over 6 years and will continue to do so. The fact is they do not flat. When all the people in my group scream GLASS I more or less don't flinch.

Have I ever flatted?....yes. Under inflated and a pothole pinch flat. I consider this my fault and not the tire.

If you like to ride a lot and long this is the tire for you
