Continental's Gatorskin 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 light tire that rolls and corners with the best of them while providing flat protection second to none.
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 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.
