The Continental GatorSkin road tyre is the ideal tyre for winter training and high milage cyclists. With excellent puncture protection thanks to Continental's PolyX Breaker and DuraSkin sidewall protection. The GatorSkin tyre has been designed to last!
GatorSkin has puncture protection at the core of it's design, and a natural rubber tread that is designed to perform well in wet and wintery conditions. Available in sizes from 700 x 23mm - 32mm
PolyX Breaker Densely woven, lightweight puncture protection. Bringing car tyre technology to the bicycle tyre market: Polyester has been used successfully for years in car tyres 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.
DuraSkin Sidewall Protection rolls with the punches! They are used under the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, the tyres 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 tyre casing against the worst conditions. These tyres stand out thanks to their brown sidewalls.
