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.

You can trust these - good for 6,000 miles of road riding, equivalent to Michelin Pro-4's. Perhaps not as tough as Armadillo's, but I'm getting 80% of the ride for 50% of the price.

Great all-around training, commuting, and touring tire.

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.

Dependable tires
rating

I have used these tires in the past but got away from them. These have always been dependable but a bit on the heavy side. I have a newer bike that I originally fitted with 32mm tires which were a bit bounce on downhills. I moved to a 28 mm and I seem to be getting less bounce with out sacrificing comfort.

I had these same tires on my urban bike for 3 years, with zero flats and little wear showing (from the pattern engraved into the surface).

If the bike hadn't been stolen, I probably could've ridden on those tires another 5-7 years (guessing).

I'm sure these new ones will wear as well. I bike 15-20 miles a week, in a fairly urban area with some thorns and debris on the roads.

The surface of the tires looks fairly smooth, but they felt normal when gripping the road.

Worried that these 28s would not fit but they fit great. I was amazed at the difference in my ride after using 25s. Very smooth ride.

Great product. Good all weather commutingtraining tire. Very good flat resistance. Not the absolute best for high speed cornering, but more than adequate for any uses other than racing. This has been my go-to tire for years and I've ridden them in every type of condition. Even ridden through piles of glass without flatting. (although I did have to pick it all out afterwards - not a recommended behavior) Consistent high quality product that has yet to disappoint.

Use the tires on my Trek Domane. Love the toughness that resists flats - have been using these for several years with very few flats. Bought a wider size to accommodate my new bike with disc brakes and the resulting ride is noticeably smoother. Decent mileage.

I have no issues with this tire. They track well on all road surface types and grip the road well. Earlier this year I was caught in a rain storm (two inches in one hour) they held their grip on the road until I could find shelter.

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.
