THE BEST ALL AROUND ROAD BIKE TIRE

I have used these Continental Gatorskins for over 10 years now along with at least 10 cycling friends I have recommended them to. My brother suggested them to me long ago and have consistently put 5,000 miles on everyone of these tires. You cannot go wrong with this tire for durability and puncture resistance. I would almost say these are puncture proof but I have had a flat once every 3-5 years or so. The last one was in 2013, more my fault for not keeping at least 115 psi in them, I weigh 190 lbs so need the pressure, but hit a rock and got a pinch flat. This tire looks fantastic and rolls with ease. Not the rock bottom when it comes to weight, not even close to being the heaviest, but for the incredible durability, I will take a slight amount of weight. Excellent road grip on dry pavement and very good in wet conditions. I have used these tires in downpours where there was over an inch of water on the road and never felt like the bike was going to wash out under me. You cannot go wrong with this tire.

Twenty miles and I get a flat, the reason i purched these tires was for the flat protection , didn do the job. They do feel and ride better but that might be from going to a size 25 from a 23.. I wouldn buy these again.. One moe thing u have to pay a lot more for the 25 than the 23..

      Comments about Continental Gatorskin Folding Tire:

      These Gatorskins are awesome! I have a Trek 420 that I ride on less than favorable road conditions thus this tire upgrade was a must. I met a lot of people who Adventure Cycle on these as well and go for thousands of miles before getting a flat. They are tight to install though. Be ready to wrestle the gator.

          Comments about Continental Gatorskin Folding Tire:

          This review is for the installation only specific to the folding tire (not the wire bead). This tire was one of the most difficult tires to install. I've installed Vittoria's and Mavics and an assortment of MTB tires and this is by far one of the most difficult ones to install. I better not end up with a flat on my commute (It's a Gatorskin so its supposed to be bullet proof, right), because I couldn't imagine how difficult it would be to change these on the side of the road. I normally don't use tire levels to put a tire back on. This was impossible to install without them. As far as the ride quality (and not sure if its just the placebo effect) is quite good. I was afraid a rugged tire like this would have poor traction. Its definitely NOT a race tire, but its a great commute tire.

          Great training and commuting tire. I have put more than 3000 miles on a set without any issues (no flats or defects). There is definitely lighter tires for racing but this is the most durable tire that I have used.
