Product Description

Go wherever you want with the Gatorskin. He is the undisputed number one worldwide for fixie riders, messengers, urban bikers - now also on the German-speaking market. Gatorskin's the right tyre for the road. With the Gatorskin you have a lot of fun, because the PolyX Breaker protects under the tread. DuraSkin makes the side wall impermeable. The Gatorskin is the perfect choice when it comes to tough performance in urban terrain.

PolyX Breaker - Slash and Sting resistant
With the PolyX Breaker, Continental brings its car know-how to the bicycle tire segment. Polyester has been successfully used in car tires for years and has proven itself many times over. The extremely resistant polyester fibre is tightly woven crosswise. This results in a very high fabric density, which makes the breaker not only resistant to foreign bodies, but also particularly resistant to punctures. The rolling resistance is also not negatively affected by the PolyX Breaker.

DuraSkin - Can plug in properly
Tyres with DuraSkin sidewall protection must be able to insert properly. They are used under the most adverse conditions. On messenger bikes the tires slide along kerbs, on touring bikes they cross continents without scratching through, in racing they have to pass toughness tests like Paris-Roubaix. The high-quality polyamide fabric reliably protects the sidewall of the tyre and prepares the tyre for the extreme. These tyres stand out from the crowd thanks to their brown sidewall.

Is not broken or damaged after about 200km and comes across very solidly. Aesthetically not the nicest tires perhaps.

Is nog niet kapot of beschadigd na zo'n 200km en komt zeer degelijk over. Esthetisch niet de mooiste banden misschien.

On recommendation I ordered this tire in 23 mm and 25 mm.  I am a former racing driver and drive all road surfaces - also in Belgium. So I need a robust tire that can handle a lot. I will experience it when the next tire change is due.

Auf Empfehlung habe ich diesen Reifen in 23 mm und 25 mm bestellt. Ich bin ehemaliger Rennfahrer und fahre alle Straßenbeläge -auch in Belgien. Somit brauche ich einen robusten reifen ,der einiges vertragen kann. Ich werde es erleben, wenn der nächste Reifenwechsel ansteht.
