Great autumn / winter tyre

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.

Best All-Season and Training Tire

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

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

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

Solid, fast, awesome

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

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.
