    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.

    yes, butyl tubes

      I like that it does not have the finicky silk like vittoria's to access the tube to fix; which allows for easy patch and re-sew.
      I have also found the tread wears significantly faster at higher road surface temperatures.
      I too would like to see the tire produce higher mileage. (170 lb, 400 mi/wk)

      Very durable, need to be stretched

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Gold standard for durable training tubulars. They last a long time and resist punctures really well, but they are SMALL. They need to be stretched for 48 hours on a non glued rim before they get installed, otherwise they will be impossible to get on without making a gluey mess.

      not a good high mileage option

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      like some of the other reviewers, i have not been able to get too many miles out of these. i weigh 140 pounds and ride 500-700 miles per month -I see thread by 1100 miles on the rear and they are completely unsafe by 1200 miles. I've burned through 3 pairs of these tires and the wear-out point is consistent.
      On a positive note, they are very round and it is quite easy to get the center line of the tire installed correctly (they are snug to get mounted though). And I have not had any issues with flats. I've been using them on carbon rims at around 120psi.

      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.

        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.

        What inner tube type is used?
