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. The Gatorskin is available in Wire Bead or Folding.

Available Sizes:

  • 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.

Great tires for the price.

I began using these tires on road bike about 4 years ago and have had no problems. I ride on city streets, roadway, and bike path. Excellent performance. My recent purchase is for a fitness and exercise bike. I expect the same excellent performance as with the road bike.

Continental Gatorskin, the ONLY Tires I Ride

I live in the California high desert where tumbleweeds and the resulting thorns are as common as snow in Alaska. I have the Continental Gatorskin tires mounted on all five of my bikes. I am not a high-mileage rider, but I do get on a bike 3 to 4 times a week for some decent miles. Over the past two years, I have not had a single flat or tire failure. In addition, roads in the high desert can be fairly rough, and I feel that the 32mm Gatorskins are as fast as the 28mm or 25mm tires on these roads, with a much more pleasant ride. The only reason I use the narrower Gatorskins on a couple of my bikes is due to frame clearance. So I do have experience with all three sizes. By the way, the folding Gatorskin is most definitely easier to mount on a variety of rims, and they mount very true, indicating the precision manufacturing by Continental.

Reliability

Great riding tire. However after about 100 miles I had a blowout ending up with a huge hole on the sidewall. Im chalking this one up to just receiving a lemon because ever since I switched to Continental tires about 18 years ago Ive never had so much as a flat. It took about 2 weeks but I received a new tire, excluding the tube, from Bike Tires Direct.

Wanted to try these tires and they went on sale so I grabbed them.

I put these tires on my Canondale hybrid. They replaced a pair of Avocet Cross tires that were 700x38. The Gatorskins are 700x35. It is a pleasure to ride these tires because they are less rolling resistance and they grip quite well on pavement and also stand up to dirt and gravel. To be fair, I must state that I also replaced the old rims. New tires, new rims right? They went on quite easily and my favorite part is when I roll my bike out of the garage for a ride, the tires squeak on the cement like a finger against a taught balloon. They also look nice on the bike which is a light blue frame, tan leather seat and black rims. I've only got about a hundred miles on them so far and I know I'll be rolling down the road for several more judging by many other cyclists who use them.

Outstanding durability

I have always been extremely satisfied with Continental tires. This particular style (Gatorskin) is such a great tire. I just completed around 1000 miles in two weeks circling my home state, Montana on a solo tour. Many of the roads had a lot of debris. In addition, I found myself on numerous sections of gravel roads. I had absolutely no issues or flats which is saying something considering some of the roads I was on. While these tires wouldn't be my choice for road racing and such, touring, training rides, and durability are where they shine.

Best training tires ever!

I've been using these exclusively now for a few years as my training tires. Where I live, the roads are rough with chip seal, pot holes, and dirt roads. These tires are durable without sacrificing too much in the area of performance.

When I'm riding to work I don't have time for flats and so far these tires have delivered. If you don't have time for flats either get these. You won't be disappointed.

Most durable tire on the market - even on a tandem!

We ride a tandem and average 6K miles per year on Gatorskin 28C tires. Besides significantly improving the ride and handling of our tandem, we've had only one flat for the last four pairs of these tires (and that was due to a broken bottle in the middle of the road on a fast downhill). We get about 2k miles per tire, which is incredible for our 290 lb combined rider weight. We will continue to mount these durable and supple tires as long as Continental keeps making them.

My favorites

These are my go-to tires for light touring (28 mm) on my road bike with a rear rack & 2 panniers. I put 4500 miles on my last set without a flat. They take the weight and abuse but still roll well for those high-mile runs. I prefer them to Armadillos or DuraPros.

If you ride in rain or tough weather conditions you will like this tire.

I have had fewer flats with Gatorskin Tires. I used them in Ironman Maryland and had no troubles. Other people didn't have such good luck. I recommend them. I bought them on sale.

Perfect Commuter Tire!

My favorite commuter tire is no longer readily available and I needed a replacement. So far so good with these Gators'. My concerns are durability for commuting at a reasonable price and these seemed like a nice option that did not require me to go with a heavier wire bead. People complain that they ride harsh. At over 100psi they were harsh. I am running 32's at about 90-95 psi and they are great! I weigh about 170lbs. and no pinch flat issues or any other flats so far. Price was good and let's see how long they last.

Solid and predictable tire!

This tire has become my go-to tire for most of my yearly riding. I might have some GP 4000 II ready for race day, but the Gatorskin's are on for everything else! They do not puncture easily and honestly I cannot remember the last time I had a flat with one on these tires. I have 25's on my road bike and have 28's and 32's for my cross/gravel bike for added comfort and coverage.

Quality product

After tiring (ha!) of getting a flat every ride on my old rubber, I put these on and promptly rode 460 miles on a 100lb touring bike across Indiana on a variety of surfaces. I did not get any flats. One can tell they are quality by feel during installation. Even if they wear out in 1000 miles, I still say they're good.
