    Details

    If you’re logging big miles year-round, the Continental Gatorskin Tires just might be your new piece of must-have gear. They’re similar to the GP4000-4 season tires, but a little heavier and a little slower — geared more toward training than all-weather racing. The Gatorskins feature two distinct layers of puncture protection: a Duraskin mesh at the sidewalls to prevent cuts, and a dense, nylon breaker under the tread to protect against direct punctures and road debris.

    • Dual-layer puncture protection
    • 180 TPI
    • Folding bead
    • Item #CON0017

    The ultimate training tire

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    There simply is no better tire for training. I got 6000 miles out of my last set and I probably would have gotten a few more if I had not used them on my trainer over the winter. Sidewalls are very durable. Extremely resistant to punctures by road debris, but not impervious. They can be punctured by wires, but seem to be pretty resistant to glass.

    The standard.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    There's a reason why everyone and their moms spend most of their non-race miles on Gatorskins; namely, no one likes flats, and they like their moms getting flats even less. These are the standard, anti-puncture endurance tires. They don't withstand everything, but they'll hold up a lot better to random road debris than your typical racing tire.

    Great all 'rounder

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    While the rubber is not as supple as the 4000s2, they still make riding on all surfaces smooth as butta! These are the chip seal champions. 28mm is the new 25mm, and I'm never going back. Ive ridden these on buffed dirt roads, and on brand-new asphalt, they are awesome

    Great City Tire

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used these on my bar bike/fixie for years and have never had an issue. I think I have had one flat in 3 years (knock on wood)! I even rode a few blocks with very limited PSI and wore the sidewall down slightly but once I put a new tube in they were still smooth as silk.

    The Best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been using this tire on my front and the Gator Hardshell (http://www.backcountry.com/continental-gator-hardshell-road-tire) on the back of my bike for roughly 2 years now and it is the best combination for a single speed commuter set up. Easy to put on and they last. Great gear allows you the confidence to not have to think about it while using it. I never worry that these are going to fail on me and that makes for great rides.

    Reliable tyres

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    First time user of Conti tyres. So far no hassle whatsoever. Body feels sturdy and realiable and they look like they were built to last.
    Comes with all the technology you would expect from any high end tyre. They are foldable so you can stash them pretty easy.

    Always a winner!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are my go-to off season, commuter, rough road, etc tire and I have even put some hard racing miles on them. Great grip, low rolling resistance and most importantly outstanding puncture resistance. I have tried other similar options that offer flat protection, but have not had the same overall performance as with the Gators.

    Throw anything at them

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Brilliant handling. Ridden through rain, snow, sand and dry tarmac. In all situations these tires gripped and hauled ass. Ran over a 5 inch bolt, no damage at all.



    Seriously recommended for the cyclist who isn't racing, but likes to go fast.



    Can't beat the price either. Best value.

    Throw anything at them

    No more flats!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Its a great tire for flat protection and overall training. It was a long life and protected well against flats. Don't know if would really race in them but for the purpose for everyday training and riding you can't go wrong. I'm on my third pair and have nothing to complain about .

    Website glitch w/ initial review

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I ride a 2013 S-Works Venge, currently run Roval CLX 60 & Fulcrum Zero wheels on post-apocalypse Texas roads. My second set of Continental tires - previously rode Hard Skins. I ride 60 - 150 miles per week, & have had NO issues with either of these two offerings from the Continental family (another testament to German engineering). Better yet - got last set from CC for $40 each - can't be beat!

    Great all around tire

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are my go to tires. I have been using gatorskins for 8 years, have always got well over 1,000 miles on them and rarely had flats. I am not a racer. I ride about 40 -100 miles per week in dry conditions ( I avoid rain if possible) on gently rolling roads to steep climbs with steep down hills and I love the grip these tires give me on tight downhill curves. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a solid tire that will give you miles and stability on the roads.

    Perfect winter training tire

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these for the hubs b/c Gatorskins have always been my go-to Winter tire, so they get 5 stars from me too. Here’s his review:

    This is my first time on 25mm tires after 12 years on 23mm. I honestly can’t tell a difference. But that doesn’t matter because these tires rock…and always will. Grippy, race-pace speed with puncture resistance and long life. What’s not to love??!!

    Added piece of mind....

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used Gatorskins in the past on a commuter bike and the tread was worn out before they had a puncture. I decided to try a set on my race bike after reaching the "0.99% flat rate" over the summer while running GP4000's. I love the 4k's, but especially going into fall and winter having to change a flat on the side of the road is a real bummer. So far, I'm impressed. I ride the same routes, over the same roads and have yet to experience any trauma.
    While no tire is 100% puncture resistant....ok, no non-solid tire..., any added protection will help. As for the handling characteristics, They really do not feel too different than GP400's unlesss the road is really, really cold. If it's cold enough outside that you can feel the difference, just back off a notch on the cornering ; )
    Great tires!

    Extreme Durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you are looking for a tire that last longer than a month and helps prevent flats, this is the tire you need. The Poly X breaker and the duraskin side wall combine to create the toughest tire out.

    No More Flats

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After getting flats on my rear tire on a regular basis (almost every time I rode), I decided it was time to switch to a tougher tire. The Gatorskin did the trick. I have put about a hundred miles on them since I got them and they show little wear overall. Definitely a burly and incredible tire that has helped me avoid having to fix many flats. Simply put, if you are sick of wasting time on your rides with blow outs, this tire is worth your while. For the price, it is completely worth the hundreds of unhindered miles you will be able to ride!

    Does anybody know whether these tires (700 x 23 OR 700 x 25) will fit a Specialised Tricross rim? The bike currently has the factory fit "Alex rims S480" and I now want to use more of a road tire when on the pavement. Thanks....

    Write your question here...What is the recommended inflation pressure for these? (700-23)

    Bob,
    FWIW, tire pressure has nothing to do with your weight. Granted a heavier rider with an under-pressured tyre would more likely experience a pinch flat (than a lighter rider over the same obstical) but as far as what pressure to set, no difference in pressure should be considered because of your weight.

    I'm 220 and run 'gators at 120 psi... read the stamp on the tire!
