Description

Continental's Gatorskin Folding combines 3 flat-protection technologies into one fast-riding, high-mileage racing and training tire. It features a super-fine 180 thread-per-inch casing, a bead-to-bead layer of DuraSkin, and is finished with a Kevlar-reinforced top layer. The result is a tire with a lightweight folding bead that rolls and corners with the best of them while providing flat protection second to none.

Features & Info

DuraSkin sidewall protection

Look for the brown sidewalls, and you know you've got DuraSkin protecting your
 tires. The high-quality polyamide fabric helps prevent cuts and abrasions when riding in the harshest conditions.

PolyX puncture protection

PolyX Breaker puncture protection brings Contintental's know-how of automobile tires into the bicycle market. Polyester fibers are woven tightly underneath the tread, and the resulting high fabric density helps resist flat tires. In addition, the rolling resistance is not adversely affected.

Weight: 220/240/320/325 grams (23c/25c/28c/32c)

Replaced the OEM tires on my Trek Domane with a pair of Gatorskins about a month after purchasing the bike. Very pleased with the rolling resistance and durability of these tires — 4900 miles of wear and tear on the original set with zero flats. Just replaced them with another pair of Gatorskins!!
