Continental Gatorskin (650c)
Continental's Gatorskin is a super long-wearing and reliable tire that's fast and great handling, too. It features a supple 180-thread-per-inch casing, a bead-to-bead layer of DuraSkin, and a Kevlar-reinforced top layer. The result is a lightweight tire that rolls and corners with the best of them while providing flat protection and durability second to none.
Look for the brown sidewalls, and you know you've got DuraSkin protecting your
tires. The high-quality polyamide fabric helps prevent cuts and abrasions when riding in the harshest conditions.
PolyX Breaker puncture protection brings Contintental's know-how of automobile tires into the bicycle market. Polyester fibers are woven tightly underneath the tread, and the resulting high fabric density helps resist flat tires. In addition, the rolling resistance is not adversely affected.
