The Right Tire For The Toughest Conditions

With its robust construction, the Continental Gatorskin has been number one for the urban cyclist who doesn't let rough roads slow them down. The brand-new Black Edition 700c Road Tire, combines the technology you know and trust from the Gatorskin and gives you an updated, sleek aesthetic.

With Conti's PolyX Breaker®, the brand brings their car expertise to the bicycle tire segment: Polyester has been used successfully for years in car tires and been tried and tested many times. The extremely resistant polyester fibre is woven tightly crosswise. In this way, a very high fabric density is reached which not only makes the Breaker more resistant to foreign objects but is also especially resistant to punctures. The rolling resistance is also not negatively affected by the PolyX Breaker.

Roll with the punches

Tires with DuraSkin® sidewall protection have to be able to roll with the punches. They are used under the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, the tires skid along curbs; on touring bikes, they cross continents without wearing out. In racing cycling, they have to endure tough tests such as the Paris-Roubaix. The high-quality polyamide fabric protects the tire casing against the worst conditions.

Features:

  • All black sidewalls
  • Poly-X Breaker puncture protection and DuraSkin sidewall protection deliver excellent resistance to thorns, glass shards and other road debris
  • 180 tpi casing is supple for great road feel
  • Foldable bead helps keep weight low

    Tight when they're new but they loosen up quickly.

    When I initially mounted the Black Edition Gators on some DT SWISS R460 rims, it was a little tough and required pretty good torque on my levers. After about a month of riding on them, I noticed the directional arrow on the side of the tire was wrong. So here was a good opportunity to correct it and see if the tires had stretched out a bit. Too my surprise, they had definitely loosened up. Now they are not only very easy to get off the rim with my wimpy levers, but I can get them back on with bare hands ! ( Just start putting the 2nd bead of the tire on the rim at 180' opposite of the valve stem and finish at the valve stem).

    I have them on my rain bike and they handle very well on Portland's leaf-slop streets.

    Good product, better sidewalls that non-black orig
    by Anonymous
    Daily Commuter
    San Jose

    I've run original gatorskins for years as I do a combination of 40m commutes and long weekend rides. Biggest complaint with originals was sidewalls unraveling before tread wore out. Black edition seems to address that issue, at least has no visible mesh on sidewalls like original.

    Beyond that, with about 1K miles, wear is great and ride is about the same (overall good). Seems the tread is less sticky, but just my visual impression - no issues with loss of traction.

    This product allows for great traction and ability to go over debris on the trail without getting a flat as with other tires. I highly recommend these tires to daily bikers especially during fall months/weather.

    I can say with out a Doubt the best all around tires made by Continental. At first I was worried about adding weight and running a slower tire on my bike but that is not a factor on these tires if you want reliability of not getting flats

    So Far So Good

    For years I used Conti 4000 tires. The 5000 came out , so I tried it. At 2200 miles the rear tire was gone, thru the wear indicators and down to the casing. I always got 4 to 5000 miles with the 4000.

    So I decided to give the Gatorskins a try. I am at 900 miles, good so far and no flats.

    My go to winter tire
    by Kielbasa

    These are my go to winter tires for riding in Colorado. The local county here puts gravelsand down over the winters that will shred most other tires. But the Gatorskins stand up and I can normally get 2 winters out of a set, or about 2,500 miles. This year I've kept them on for the summer and have been taking them on gravel roads and dirt, without any puncture issues. I hope they keep making the black limited edition because they look so much better than the standard gator skins. I'm also 6'4 and 195 lbs so I'm on the heavier end of things.

    I've relied on Gatorskins for years for commuting. I'm happy to see an updated sleeker-looking version as I prefer my bikes to be as minimal as possible and tend to not adhere to trends such as tan sidewalls, etc.

    Virtually Flat Free - watch your mileage though...

    I do a lot of solo riding long distance, and the most debilitating thing about any ride is a mechanical or a puncture. The Gatorskin Blacks are trusted and tested to deliver me to the end goal every time. I've been riding about 1600k a month lately, so I do keep an eye on the road mileage. When the front tire gets a flat, that's when I know it's time to change them out before I do another century. I buy them in advance, so I always have a back up pair or two on hand. Note: Yes - they are heavier than racing tires, but the time I lose in climbing speed, I make up for, by not having to stop for a puncture. So if you change terrain over the course of one ride: glass, gravel, poor road quality, sand, pine needles, city garbage, etc... and you hate to change out a flat (ladies?) This tire is for you. The regular yellow sidewall Gators are also as durable, but the blacks are prettier. ;)

    Great solid long lasting tire
    by ccv90

    I replaced some 30mm tires with a set of 28mm for the 6Gap ride. I�ve been using the Gatorskins for years and love their longevity. I ride 25mm on my carbon bike but wanted a bit more comfort for the aluminum bike I used for the mtn. century. Can't really say anything bad about them. I do like the Black sidewall look of this edition. They carry a conventional rubber sidewall in place of the weaved sidewall the Continentals traditionally use and appear a bit more robust to sidewall cuts.

    My forever tire!

    I have been using these tires since 2004 and I have been very pleased with their durability and puncture resistance. I always carry a spare tube, patches and a pump. I typically get 5000 + miles on the rear tire and much more on the front and only rarely need to fix a flat. By rarely , I mean maybe every couple of years.
