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.

So far indestructible

Use these tires for road touring and have been through some rough roads as well forced to ride the shoulder and have not had any flat tires so far.

The Gatorskin is a classic a bit slow rolling resistance made up for by the serious puncture resistance

I switched to this tire from a more narrow road tire for more stability and shock resistance. It serves these purposes very well. It is significantly slower as its hard and inflexible rubber needed for puncture resistance comes at the expense of rolling resistance. Totally worth it especially for the winter in the Northwest. Tires are great and as always, dealing with Bike Tires Direct a true pleasure.

Great tire for touring

My wife will not use any tire other than the Continental Gatorskin. The tires easily last 3,000 miles and she has not had a flat tire in close to 10,000 miles with multiple Gatorskins. I have been riding the Continental 4000 with great success, but have had at least 5 flats with approximately the same mileage and rising conditions. I will probably switch to the Gatorskins for next years touring.

One tough tire

These tires are great, durable, all weather tires that I use for commuting to work everyday. The wider surface area and thicker tires makes for a very comfortable ride. I've used them for over a month now and am very happy. Overall, I would say great purchase!

Swear by Gatorskins!

I bought a pair of the Gatorskins (700x32) for my Surly Crosscheck. I rode them for over 5500 miles including on some pretty rough roads between cities and through out New York City. I only changed them because I figured I wanted to be sure. I probably could have gotten another 1000 miles. I had one flat, but that was from a big wood crew on a direct hit outside of Baltimore. It would have flatted a car tire. Patched tube and rode another 1500 miles before new tires. They're great and worth every penny. They ride hard and smooth and the peace of mind you have no matter what the conditions is superb.

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.

Great Tire

Have not yet had a chance to put a lot of miles on these tires, but so far I like them. They roll pretty easily, and give a smoother ride than my old tires. No flats yet, but then again, I've only put a couple hundred miles on them. Bike Tires Direct had a good price for them , and they were delivered quickly.

I like them

Without being technical I seem to have far fewer flats with these. I actually wear them out first. Are they the fastest tires you can buy, probably not. But Im not that fast either and I use them for training, not racing.

These were installed on my road bike about 2 weeks ago. Standard installation procedure was smooth and they have ridden well, even with a forced 3 mile gravel detour that was unplanned. No flats....

Continental 4000 tires give great mileage and safety on the road.

There is nothing I dislike about these tires. What I like is the fact that with front to rear rotation, I get about 10.000 miles per tire. That is why I think the value is so good.
