Great heavy duty tandem tire

We use 700x28 gatorskins on our tandem-nothing else will hold up to the combined weight and puncture resistance. The wire bead tire is heavy, but that's the price you pay for the durability. ...Read complete review

We use 700x28 gatorskins on our tandem-nothing else will hold up to the combined weight and puncture resistance. The wire bead tire is heavy, but that's the price you pay for the durability. Another advantage is that these tires will holds a shape when flat......I rode 6 miles home once on a completely flat tire and reused it! Not smart to do , but nice to know that I could.

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??

    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.

    Comments about Continental Gatorskin Wire Bead Tire:

    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.

          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.

              These tires work very well on hardpack and gravel as well as road. Very fast tire! I did not notice any difference in speed from my 23s.

              Got this tire because I was tired of getting flat tires. Sometimes it's a simple annoyance to get a flat, sometimes it's an hour walk home because there are no more patches left. High price is worth it to not have to walk home.
