Continental Gatorskin Black Tyre (Folding) - 700 x 28mm
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
The Gatorskin is the original long distance runner, the global number one for urban commuters, and the favoured option for unstoppable cycle couriers everywhere. The tightly woven polyester 'Poly-X' breaker puncture protection layer sits front and centre under the tread to keep all the regular road nasties at bay. The familiar and characteristic brown polyamide DuraSkin anti-cut fabric wraps from bead to bead to ensure scuffing sidewalls on a curb won't lead to critical failure.
In varying widths from 23 mm to 32 mm this tyre is perfectly suited to and often seen on a multitude of different bike types. Perfect for reliable service on the way to work, for road race training in any season, or for long distance sportifs and audax. When fixing a punture is the last thing you want on your mind the Gatorskin is ready to rise to the challenge. Perhaps best of all the ride quality and weight is still fantastic despite the additional protection. Once you've calculated all the benefits for so many everyday riding scenarios it's no wonder the Gators are so ubiquitous.
