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.

Just passed 5000 miles with a set of Gatorskins. Got a slight flat spot at about 2700 miles, so I flipped back to front. Had one flat so far, a steel belt shard after a Houston rain. I weigh about 205. My training rides are 40 miles, just came in from a 50 miles ride with club from bike shop. I inflate to 90 psi on front, 100 psi rear wheel. I'm sure I could go at least another 1500 miles on these, but a couple of months ago I bought some Four Season on half price sale. I know Gatorskins are a little heavier, a little stiffer, but they are exactly what I wanted.

I have over 3,000 miles on my last set of Gatorskins and as the wear dimples are almost gone, it was time to order another pair. First set of road tires that I have not experience any flats with where others have failed. I think they provide a good ride quality (though no the best) and are reasonably light weight (though not the lightest). However, as I don't race I value a trouble free ride where I may be 20 to 30 miles away from my starting point more than a few grams.

I just rode Tour de Blast, people were flatting left and right. I spoke with folks who suffered two and three flats on the ride. I couldn't find even a nick in my gatorskin.

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.

good tire for bad raods
rating
by Barry

I have used these tires for the last couple of years with good results. Until now. My last set had about 2k miles on them and were starting to show wear so I changed them. Got a flat the next week, I don't know what I hit but it put a gash at the top of the sidewall. So I changed that tire after a week. Two weeks after I changed tires, I got another puncture, this one right through the center of the tire. I am no longer using this tire.

Have started using gator skins about 7 years ago and never looked back. Since using them on San Francisco and Bay Area roads they have weathered the street debris and other road issues better than most other tires. It's important to use good inner tubes because the cheep inner tubes fail long before the tires need to be replaced. Buy again? You bet!

I am not a pro, but these tires seem to be very resilient and great riding tires. They are somewhat difficult for an amateur to install, but he many videos on the subject will allow you to finish. They are much quieter than my previous OEM tires.

Gatorskins are heavy duty and near-bullet proof. A bit on the heavy side, but if you want a good training tire that will last till the Second Coming, this is the tire! Good product at a good price. Western Bike Works was the best in ordering and shipping.... I was amazed how fast I got the shipment.

Bought 28cc tire as a replacement to my original 23cc tires. Have about 400 miles on the new tires and they seem to be functioning ning well. No cuts or flats in the tread. Smoother ride and were easy to install. Look forward to putting on many more care free miles.

It snowediced in Portland this year which was incredibly annoying and made road conditions strange. Totally devastated my cheaper tires, cool until now, in the gritty aftermath.

After a few $20 replacements I got hip to the fact that Gatorskins would shoulder these conditions and I'm happy to report I've been flat-free for an entire season.

I'll give you 5 stars for now but if I recently bust please know I'll write a fresh review and excessively whine. Until then.

Riding on the roads. The tire is reliable and durable. Because I ride on the many rough roads in Northeast Ohio, I find Gatorskins are a necessity. No problems (or flats) while riding on these tires. I highly recommend them.
