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 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.

    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. ;)

    Damn good tires

    Been through a lot of tires and these are by far the best I�ve purchased. I�ve had them on for over four months now and have put them through the ringer and haven�t had one flat yet. Super responsive on leaning turns.

    Great reliable tire - fast and no flats!

    Using as fast rolling tires on my gravel bike when I'm doing road rides. They feel very fast and yet sturdy and I have had no flats yet. Would recommend.

    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.

    Great tires!

    Excellent tires, great deal, The improvement over the tires I replaced was immediate. I ride New York City streets almost daily and the tires hold up really well on rough surfaces. traction is excellent and without undue drag like the tires I replaced. The improvement in handling is huge. I can make hard and fast turns with confidence now.

    I'm installing the second set on my triathlon bike.
