Great autumn / winter tyre

Total :


Good puncture resistance, good grip and fairly quick tyre. Only downside is they are not the easiest to put on, but thats worth putting up for because of the benefits...and they look good on.

I have used these tires since they became available. Nothing short of fabulous.
Sweet roll and corning.
No flats.
Easy mount and removal by hand.
Perfectly aligned on my rims.
Very durable and long lasting.
I've used lots of tires over 40+ years of cycling and Gatorskin Hardshell's are my all-time favorite.

Great value

Total :


Averaging 5000 miles a year on a rear tyre of this type. Had a staple go through the one currently on the bike. That was 1000 miles ago. I am 6’ 6� & 270#, I am rough on the parts. This tyre is exceptional, delivered across the pond with free shipping. Ya’ll are the best! Thanks PBK, Jim

great city tires

Total :


these work great on my track bike that I use for everyday riding, these work well with the abuse of potholes wet floors and constant skidding, and I've had them for about a month now and they're still good

best tires made

Total :


Over all the best tires made, I've had these for two years riding 5 days a week to and from work with is about 8 miles there and back, got one pinch flat, but within two years that's just great, really amazing tires

Solid, fast, awesome

Total :


Bought these due to an abundance of winter flats on my previous tyres, these are an order of magnitude better.

Keeps me upright and stays inflated, couldn't really ask for more.

Tough training tyre that rolls well too

Total :


Continental's Gatorskin is one of our favourite training tyres. It’s very quick and it’s tough enough for winter riding, audax and fast commuting – so long as you keep it topped up to its recommended pressure and don’t leave flints and the like embedded in the tread.

But for those wanting more puncture protection and wear life, Continental have introduced a new Hardshell version. There’s a bit more tread rubber, a wider polyester breaker strip under the tread, and a three-ply rather than two-ply polyamide casing to help prevent slashed sidewalls.

Bombproof tyre, never had a puncture and 6500km old

Total :


I ride with my girlfriend and of course I get to ride in the gutter, through all the glass, debris and other road gunk!

I can happily say that after 6500km, I have never had a puncture and these tyres are still going strong! If you are looking for an ultra tough road tyre for training, this is the one.

This tyre is not fast though, great for training and when you pop on your race wheels after using these. You will feel like you are flying along!

Excellent A++++
(Only thing I could ask for is a couple of different colours to choose from)

Tried and trusted.

Total :


Very hard wearing tires - finally threw out my last pair after ~2000km of commuting and training on Australian roads [where you may as well be a street sweeper!!]. The tires had numerous small cuts where glass had cut the outer layer of rubber but had not penetrated through to the tube, testament to their construction.

The only bad experience thus far in >3years riding on them was when a stone slashed through the sidewall of my rear tire, rendering it useless; however, I reckon you'd struggle to find a tire that would have survived the same!

I recommend these tires to everyone.
