Gatorskin Tire

Combining the robust quality we've come to expect from the original with a sleek, all-black look, the Continental Gatorskin Black Edition Tires are still for the urban cyclist whose daily commute consists of mile after mile of roughshod roads, but also appreciates a striking aesthetic. The Gatorskins feature two distinct layers of puncture protection: a Duraskin mesh at the sidewalls to prevent cuts, and a dense, PolyX breaker under the tread to protect against direct punctures and road debris. From wet, wintry conditions to gravel-strewn, pothole-ridden roads, this tire leads you confidently into battle.


  • Durable road tire for commutes on rugged, beat-up surfaces
  • Dual-layer puncture protection maximizes debris defense
  • Duraskin offers optimal sidewall protection
  • PolyX Breaker helps prevent punctures from ruining the ride
  • Folding bead helps cut down on weight, not performance

Nearly Nuke Proof

I've put it through the wringer

Ive put many many miles on these Gatorskin clinchers. I ride a combination of tarmac and rough, beat up back roads. I have punctured once. I was descending and hit a pot hole significantly hard which caused a pinch puncture on my tube. Ive run over glass, throns etc with these and was safe from punctures. I dont think any tire out there could have saved me from a puncture from the pot hole i hit, so i dont really fault the tire itself...aka my fault. Easy to get on and they run reasonably close to size when in diameter when inflated.

continental gatorskin black

I've used it several times

really disappointed with this tire. 1 tire is not round so every time it comes around it thumps. i tried it with different rims and tubes but still the same. i expected better from continental.

Maybe not the lightest?

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

But it?s ?Bulletproof? on having flats. Handles well on beat up sharp bump-asphalt trails and tolerable of rolling rough gravel on secondary roads. As a crossover-use tire even in the wet we?re Very Impressived, still gripped very well on rain-drenching downhill mountain asphalt trails at speed.) Doesn?t need a lot of manufacturer minimal psi to preform best. Folding bead easy to change-out without tools. Offered ?Black Edition? is a plus in sidewall looks dept?only possible cons?it does maybe wear a little faster? Add top-off air every few days. Highly recommend wouldn?t use anything else for our biking applications. Leaves me at home to do maintenance not on roads/trails.

I?ve been riding on these tires for the last 5 years. Great traction in wet conditions. It wears evenly. I ride about 4,000 plus miles a year and I?ve never had a problem with them. I recommend it.

"Holes" are wear indicators

I've used it several times

I had read previous reviews on Amazon that there were complaints of holes on the tires. I inspected prior to install and saw that mine had them too. I contacted Continental's customer service and they quickly replied indicating that the "holes" are wear indicators and do not have any impact to performance. I only have about 100 miles on them currently, but they've performed well and I'm confident on pavement and gravel.
