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.

Available Sizes:

  • 700c x 23mm (23-622 ISO, 280g, 120 max. psi)
  • 700c x 25mm (25-622 ISO, 300g, 120 max. psi)
  • 700c x 28mm (28-622 ISO, 360g, 116 max. psi)
  • 700c x 32mm (32-622 ISO, 380g, 102 max. psi)

Note: Continental has 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.

Best Built Tires

I've heard so much about these Gatorskin tires. I purchased a pair back in March of 2020. I currently have about 2000 miles on them and they are still looking great. Not much wear. I believe they are bullet proof. I Live in Southern Ca and the streets have so much glass and rocks. I have not had a flat at all. I would recommend these to all.

highly recommended

Gatorskins is my tire of choice and since gravel across roadways prone to flooding during moderate to heavy rains is a concern, I need a tire that will hold up to these conditions. I have only ever had one issue which is a wite had lodged itself into the tire and it took me several flat tubes to locate the little devil

A great tire!

I have used these tires for years. As an avid cyclist, I go through about two sets a year. They have great traction in all conditions and with the small divots, I know when to replace them.

Dependable, and holds to the road very well!

These tires give you a good feel of the road, plus comfortablysafely handle my 220 lb. weight. I am in my 70s, I ride mostly for enjoyment and health 10 miles a day . I have vintage Schwinn Paramount aluminum road bikes that have the adequate space for the wider 23 tires with this specific brand. These tires are a bit pricey, but they say, you get what you pay for...

Great Tires - Long Lasting with LOW rolling Resistance

After 52,022 miles in 11 years this is the only tire I will ride with. Here in Texas, we have a lot of things that cause flats. Gatorskins have made my rides almost flat free.

Gatorskins Always

The Continental Gatorskins are not only light but are extremely durable. I have been logging 1500 miles per road tire and could probably get more miles if I waited to have a flat before replacing them. Also, they seem to retain air more readily then other road tires I've tried. Gatorskins are now my tired of choice for ride comfort, and confidence.

I purchased a set of 28mm Continental Gatorskin 700c Road Tire to replace 32mm, Love them.

I purchased a set of 28mm Continental Gatorskin 700c Road Tire to replace 32mm on my Trek FX4. I replaced the stock Schwalbe tires which I had a puncture the second time out. This is my second set. I had purchased a set of 32mm for a hybrid bike and have ridden on them for two years without an issue. I highly recommend Gatorskins and I have converted two of my fellow riders. Great product and Biketiresdirect.com have been more than helpful.

Solid road tyre!

I live in Wisconsin and ride year-round-about 3k miles annually. Normally I run 28mm or 32mm Conti TouringContact because I like the extra grip on the loose terrains, but the Gatorskins were on special so I went with them for the SpringSummer season and so far no punctures (and the higher PSI makes for faster riding). Smooth and tank-like! I have been through many pools of broken glass, countless construction sites littered with garbage, infinite potholes. No flats! The one consolation with a tire like this for a commuter is that they feel shaky and a little frightening on gravel and other non-solid surfaces. But on a smooth road they are a delight.

Continue to be impressed with lack of flats!

I have a tire jack so installing these isn't the issue for me that it is for some folks, they are difficult to get that last bit of bead up and over. I've got these on all the bikes in the house now and between these great tires and our pre-ride inspection to remove any little bits that might work their way to the tube, we're happily flat-free.

Great tire for commuting in the city

I commute by bike 5 days a week around 18 miles per day. I ride in all kinds of conditions, so it's important to have a tire I don't have to think about.

These tires have always been bomb proof for me. I don't think I've ever had a flat while riding them. I have a set on my road bike(s) too.

BTD makes ordering simple, deliver is fast and the price is always good. Easy and convenient.

Good quality tire

Great tires for riding and keeping you going from normal road debris. On a new tire I can easily go 500-700 miles with a flat. If you hit a nail or heavy duty staple just right, the metal will win usually.
