The Continental Ultra Gatorskin Wired Clincher Tyrestrikes a balance between durability and performance thanks to a combination of higher TPI count, an aramid breaker between the tread and the casing and Duraskin sidewall ProTection.
Consequently, the GatorSkin makes a great wire bead training and racing tyre thanks to its puncture protection properties and lower rolling resistance.
Handmade in Germany
Super fine 240 tpi casing
Bead-to-bead layer, DuraSkin, and a Kevlar-reinforced layer directly under the tread
Great for daily use and tough conditions
Quality German made natural rubber tread
PolyX Breaker Technology - With their PolyX Breaker, Continental bring PKW know-how to the bike tyre arena ‚ Polyester has been used successfully for years in car tyres and been tried and tested many times. The extremely resistant polyester fibre is woven tightly crosswire making a very high fabric density which not only makes the Breaker more resistant to foreign objects, but is also resistant to punctures. The rolling resistance is not effected either by the PolyX Breaker.
DuraSkin - Tyres with DuraSkin sidewall protection have to roll with the punches. These tyres are used in the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, on epic travel bikes crossing continents without wearing through and in professional cycling they have to endure tough tests such as Paris-Roubaix.
The high-quality polyamide fabric reliably protects the casing of the tyre and protects the tyre from the worst conditions. These tyres stand out with their brown sidewalls. The slick natural rubber tread is designed to perform well in wet/wintery conditions.
