Gatorskins

Our group rides distance, (road bikes on asphalt roads) in supported and not supported rides. Flats previously were a problem. Most of our riders have now switched over to Gatorskins, based on good experience by a few. I ride 5-6000 mi per yr, with 0-1 flats per yr. Gatorskins even successfully defeat the local Southern California scourge, "goat heads". When you feel one going thump as it goes around, just stop and pull it out and usually you're still good to go. As a side benefit, they wear well. I usually change them after a year, because I'm getting nervous, not because they are bare. They weigh slightly more, but for our use, well worth the additional grams.

will not flat

Buy these in 25s. Run them at 90 psi until you wear the tread down so there are ridges. Replace them. I have done this for about 6 years and tens of thousands of miles and have had two (2) flat tires with these.

As reliable as the seasons

I run Gatorskins on all my road bikes, including my tandem, all year round. I don't recall ever getting a flat during the summer months, and during winter only get flats after a couple thousand miles. My 40 km commute takes me over gravel roads, chip seal, heavily potholed asphalt in an industrial area, bike trails, and 'regular' city roads. I live in Seattle, so the roads are wet much of the time, but I rarely skid on heavy braking with these tires I don't race, so I'm not as concerned with weight or high-speed cornering, and can't compare them to racing tires. But for putting on lots and lots and lots of miles (like commuting or training) they are perfect for riding if you don't like fixing flats. The only issue I have with Gatorskins is that the thickened rubber on the center track tends to collect and hide tiny sharp rocks and glass. I just quickly check the tires every evening and pick out the debris with a small screwdriver. I do ride lots of miles, and love the reliability and cost-effectiveness of the Gatorskins. Note: PBK often offers the best price in the world that I've found, although they are not reliable in terms of having the size I need, when I need it. For example, as I write this review they only have 700x23s in stock. So, I purchase more than I need and keep some spares on hand.

Tough Tires

I bought a set for a friend, and she has had no flats, despite lots of debris in our bike lanes. I highly recommend if flat protection is what you seek.

Conti Gatorskins

What can I say? I've put 5K miles on these tires in two seasons and I haven't had a single flat and they're just now getting to the point where I'm thinking about replacing them. Solid all-around tire, just fine in rain (I ride even during heavy downpours) and considering the PBK price, a really great deal to boot. A little more difficult to change than some other folding clinchers, but it makes your hands tougher. Just be sure to use the right, specifically sized tubes and not a catch-all size to prevent pinch flats. Not the fastest, lightest tire out there but totally suitable for recreational riders and commuting.

Gatorskins are Great

Have had then for 400 mile now and no problems. They roll great, are very tough. Well worth the money.

Nice Tires!

Everything they say about the gator skin is true. It's a tough, reliable wheel. Service from pro bike kit was nice. I ordered these from the States and everything arrived in a timely manner!

Tough as nails

I've been riding a set of these for 9 months, at least 3 times a week, on rough chip seal roads. The front is still really good and the rear hasn't yet worn through the wear indicators, which is a great feature of this tire. I'm 200 lbs so quite a bit of pressure ends up on my rear tire. Not the lightest, but pretty good considering its toughness, and the ride is quite acceptable as well. I experimented with a lot of tires, and have really come to appreciate the durability and flat resistance of these. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent Tires

The Continental Gatorskin Clincher Road Tyre are such nice riding tires. I tried the Hardshells but it was too uncomfortable of a ride. These are great riding tough tires at a great price.

The Continental Gatorskin Clincher Road Tyre arrived.... eventually (shipping to USA) and has been wonderful! I have had fewer punctures/flats, I guess you can buy peace of mind.

Long lasting puncture protection

Great training tire. Almost 5,000 miles on a rear tire before the belt started to show. Still got a few flats, but it was one every couple of weeks instead of a couple every week.

foldable Gatorskins

2500 miles on my rear 700 x 25mm gator skin with no flats. The rear tire was getting worn so I replaced it before a series of big rides just to make sure but there were still plenty of miles left on it I think. The front tire still looks great. The foldables are pretty light too considering the extra protection. First purchase from PBK. Went well. Minneapolis MN USA

Great Tire, Better Price

Got a great set of training tires for the price I'd pay in the states for 1 shipped free across the pond in a very reasonable amount of time.

Gatorskins review

The Continental Gatorskin Clincher Road Tyre is a great all round tyre. They give you pretty solid, flat protection while still managing to give you good rolling resistance. If you're not looking for a pure race tyre, I would recommend these.
