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

    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.

    ...but with the durability comes weight. Most times riding in the cascade foothills Ill take that trade every day, riding over glass and general roadside debris. There are days when Id like a lighter tire for climbing, but not often. Black edition looks pretty sweet.

    My go to winter tire

    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.

    Great solid long lasting tire

    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.

    Great price. A great combination of relatively light weight and durability. I'm going to use these as my winter tires on my rain bike. No flats for 3 months of use on both my bikes. Continentals are great tires!

    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. ;)

    GATORSKINS ARE THE BEST

    I normally ride around 125 miles per week through different parts of San Diego County. I have used Gatorskin tires for at least 15 years, and have found them to be the best for reliability and wear. I always have a couple of spare tires on hand to replace older, worn out or severely damaged tires when necessary.

    I would recommend, in a heartbeat, Gatorskin road tires for reliable, dependable road bike tires.
