I got these tires as a gift last year and I have put at least 2000 miles on them through rough commuter traffic. I thought they were near bullet proof til this year where we seem to have many more goathead thorns than usual. Last year I had gotten no flats at all. But this year I've experienced 3, all of which where from goatheads. I've hit metal, small rocks, glass, all having minimal effect (scars and scratches on outer layer) but not puncturing through. As for performance, I've had them past 55 mph through a windy descent and they held the road just like they're supposed to. I just replaced the rear tire for wear, but the front tire should get another 500+ miles I would estimate.

I don't see how this tire is any more puncture resistant than the rest. I've ridden on a 700x25 for just about 400 miles now and have gotten 4 flats, to my riding partners zero flats (he's on old Conti Grand Prixs.) First flat was glass that cut through all plies and the tube...I didn't even see the glass. Second was I'm not sure what. Third and fourth were about 10 thorns. Unbelievable amount of flats and the tire looks like hell. I don't think I'll ever buy this tire again. Maybe they forgot the gatorskin layer??

Gator skins

Comments about Continental Gatorskin Wire Bead Tire:

I've been using gator skins for a couple months now my first set I ran over a shard of metal and did not hesitate to slash through both the tire and the tube but after replacing them with the same tire I have done hundreds of miles without a flat .

      Not the lightest tire- but that's not why you buy gatorskins. They are tough. I bought them to prevent flats, not to shave seconds off my group rides.

      Hands down best tire fore city, commute, or long rides. Superior flat protection and grip. Everyone that knows anything about cycling knows if you have theses on your bike then you know your stuff, haha. But seriously, great tire. I have had 2 pairs for 4 years on 2 different bikes.

      If you are looking for a fast, sleek, beat everyone off the line style tire - look somewhere else. But if you want the most durable tire money can buy - this is the one.

      Very durable road tire, it still however is prone to punctures like any other tire. Don't let the "puncture proof" slogan fool you. Still a very good tire though, grippy and fast rolling. Much better than many tires I've used in the past such as pro 3's and bontrager.

      Comments about Continental Gatorskin Wire Bead Tire:

      All around a great tire. I've tried many tires over the years and I keep coming back to Gators. I average over 200 miles a week on them and they hold up quite well. The folding kind are quite a bit easier to work with and install, especially while in the field. The folding kind also weigh quite a bit less too.
