The Continental Gatorskin Hardshell further increases the puncture protection of the Gatorskin tyre. The sidewalls on this model get extra casing and a further layer of protection covers the tread strip. If you want a fast rolling puncture resistant tyre on your road or commuter bike then this should probably be the one.

It's puncture fighting weapons:

  • Duraskin sidewalls
  • PolyX Breaker protection
  • Three-ply carcass
  • TPI: 180 (very high which makes it harder for thorns etc to penetrate).

Puncture-proof and durable

Bought these to replace the same tyres, which lasted me 18 months on my training bike with no punctures. These tyres are are extremely puncture-proof, very durable and roll well enough for training tyres. Have considered going tubeless, but Gatorskins are so reliable and puncture-proof that I've decided to stay with tubes.

Cheap and helpful

Sent a couple of emails about the product before I bought. Emails were answered quickly.
Product itself came quickly and price was cheapest around.
Even managed to get the tyre on without using too many swearwords!
I've got the same tyre on the front (but non folding) and no punctures so far, so I'm optimistic for this one as well.
