Details

Continental's Ultra 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.

Comments:

I've used Gatorskins for over 1500 miles over some pretty rough roads in California. I had three flats on the first day from three separate shards of sharp rocks. 1500+ miles later not a single flat despite multiple cuts and gouges.

Pretty good...

Comments:

I commute and these are the tires I run on the road bike I ride when I don't have to carry a lot of junk to work with me. They work very well and are a good compromise between weight and durability for a bike that is intended to be ridden fast, but also that must be ridden in less than ideal conditions and is depended upon for transportation. I managed to cut one pretty badly on some glass, but I patched it from the inside with a tube patch and rode it like that for a couple hundred miles. So, the point of this review is to say that they are the best lightweight tires I have found, but that they are still roadie tires and they will still get cut if you roll over the wrong stuff...

Great tires,smooth ride. I have just gotten 3000 miles out of my second set, rotated at about 1500 mi. and still going, no flats. First set 3000 miles, one puncture on the 3000-mile topper ride! Third set on order for when the current ones wear down to the belt. Money well spent!

    Comments:

    I have more than 2000 miles on a set of these tires - I have ridden over glass, potholes, metal shards, etc., and no flats yet. Not as fast as a race tire, but they are very durable, and fast enough for most city riding. I am going to get another set this fall because the rear is wearing out due to skidding (fixed gear bike) - but I have never had a more durable set of tires, and they are worth every penny. Recommended when I purchased my bike this spring, I recommend them to others now.

      I have Been Running this set of Tires for two seasons now and they are a very dependible tire with tons of grip and tread life. They are great for people in the 200 plus pound range as the stiff side wall is very good for no pinch flats.
