Forget flats.

If you're the kind of rider who prefers using tubulars year-round, the Continental Sprinter GatorSkin Tubular Tire is an excellent choice for long-distance rides and daily training. This grippy tubular is especially useful for riding over bumpy backroads and urban areas with tire-shredding debris, thanks to its tough Duraskin sidewalls and Safety System Breaker tread reinforcement. Both technologies limit damage from tire-shredding debris, giving you extra peace of mind when you're miles from home.

You'll find the same 180TPI casing that's used on Continental's Sprinter tubular tires. However, the Sprinter GatorSkin Tubular Tire retains a thicker tread layer for higher levels of overall puncture resistance.

Surprisingly Bad

    I have loyally ridden Gatorskin clinchers for many previous years and been happy with them. However, I just switched back to tubulars, tried this one, and it was a total loser. After 1000mi, I had a 2-inch patch worn through the middle core layer, and the wear layer was gone over the rest of the tire's center. Never again. Need to find a new favorite brand.


    Very fast, wears out very quickly

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I had two of these on my Cervelo S5 VWD last summer, with valve extenders in a set of Williams 58 wheels. Valve cores remove, for installation into the end of the extenders.

    They were Really Nice when new. After just over 900 miles, I was down to the cord. Never again.

    How much do you weight? I am 175 and get 2000 miles out of my rear gatorskin, and a two or three years out of the front.

    I weigh about 190. I've got Conti Sprinters now, at about 800 miles, and they look to be wearing far better. Might have been a crummy batch? Might have to give them another go, after this positive experience with Sprinters.



      I've ridden sow ups all my life. This has been a great tire. No flats. I run them at 140 psi. Very happy.

      Do the tires have removable core valve...

      are the valve core removable on these so that that you can use extenders?

      What inner tube type is used?

      What inner tube type is used?

      While I haven't taken them out, they seem to keep the air pressure over long periods of time so I'd put my money on a conti butyl

      I'm pretty sure they're butyl tubes. They don't leak down as quickly as a tire with latex tubes in them.
