I used to get occasional flats, but since I switched to these tyres that is no longer the case. Love these tyres especially when they are on sale at Probikekit.
The tire was easy to install, looks good, and hasn't had any flats or issues.
It took me many years and many flat tires before I came upon Continental Gatorskin tires. They ride smoothly, are quite durable and flat resistant. They have done quite well on gravel and dirt roads as well as highly traveled roads with much debris and many potholes. Cycling has been more enjoyable since using these tires as I spend much less time fixing flats and spend more time enjoying the ride.
Excellent wearing tires. We use them on our road tandem. Very good combo of grip and cornering vs wear. Switched from Michelin Pro 4 and the Conti's seem to be a much better tire.
Although most tire brands may claim to be "Puncture resistant" Continental gator skin are honestly modest in their claim to 'help against punctures" and they achieve this task and more. Though no tire is 'Puncture proof', this tire does an excellent job at being the closest to 'puncture resistant' than most. It is truly durable, it will sustain a high tire pressure and consistently perform and last for a long time! I would highly recommend this tire for year round use.
So far so good with the tires. I've used the Gatorskins before and never experienced any problems.
Fitted 700Cx28 to our Cannondale tandem instead of 25s. What an improvement in ride comfort! I would like to add that after several years of dealing with PBK, I am really impressed by the speed of delivery from the UK to Florida. p.s. why isn't my age group included below. I am 75 and still ride 100 miles/week.
Great lasting tire , been using these for commute and training for a while and no flats so far, price is good too.
These are excellent tyre so for the roads I ride on. I have used the 4000S and they seem to get worn out very fast due to the road surface in some parts of my neighborhood. Since switching to the Gators all my problems have disappeared. I did not notice any difference between the 4000S and the Gatorskins while riding. Very satisfied with these types.
Needed a little extra tire for a gravel grinder. The tires stood up to some really rough Vermont back roads, if you care to call them roads. I used a road bike with rim brakes. The hilly nature of this ride made for tough braking. The wheels tended to swim on descents, which made for some scary turns. The plus side is that these tires were bullet proof. I ran over or through some minefields along the way. Overall ride comfort was a plus on asphalt surfaces. While these tires performed well, I will avoid gravel grinders in the future.
Seemed like a very good tire....had a puncture on the first outing. I hope this is not an omen of things to come for this pair of tires.
Awesome tire at an awesome price! Fast shipping and super customer service!
I have been using these tires for a few years on my road bike (700x25) and have found them to be the best combination of ride and flat protection. Using the Gatorskins with tire liners has worked very well in almost 20,000 miles of cycling. I normally get around 3,000 miles for a rear tire, little more for the front. The roads where I ride are not good and have a lot of debris.
Very durable training/touring tire that rides really nice; excellent value. Particular favorite is the 25cm for comfort and traction in all weather conditions.
Excellent tyres! Been commuting on them for years with - well I can't even recall a flat!! Wear well and handle well on descents. Love'em
I am the "official" tire changer during our weekend group rides that involve between 30-40 riders in our A and B groups. I used to change 3-4 flat tires every weekend ride. Some of the Riders starting asking me why I never seemed to get flats? I told them I had started using the Gatorskin Tires and the flat tires disappeared. We now have about 80% of the group riding on them and it has made the ride much more enjoyable now that we almost never stop for flat tires. I do have a few useful tips: 1. The tires do have a direction of rotation arrow, make sure you mount them correctly. 2. If you like 23mm tires, you will love riding the 25mm tires. 3. Use about 10 psi less in the tires (approx 100 psi vs 110psi) for a smoother ride 4. Inspect your tires and pull out any small bits of glass or rock as they will eventually work their way through to the tube. 5. Store you bike indoors to avoid premature weathering of your tires. 6. Ride safe and keep the rubber side down.
Great tires, the 25mm can handle any weather without sacrificing speed. Bought them for winter riding in New England, and for a road race which includes gravel roads. Highly recommend. Best price worldwide from probikekit
The only tire I ride. Almost never get a flat. ProKit always has the best price too. A win win.
I've been using these in the 25mm width as my daily training tire for about 5 years. The 25s ride a little smoother and faster than the 23s and are a bit more durable, probably because I can run them at a lower pressure (f105; r 110, I weigh 180). I get about 2000 miles on the rear and between 2500 and 3000 on the front, and change out well before any cords or casing shows. The ride is a bit rough (smoothest on the 25s), but that's the trade-off for a bullet-proof casing. The only downside is that handling in the rain is a bit sketchy (not horrible), so I take it easy through corners. A confidence inspiring tire that won't leave you stranded in the boonies on your long training rides.
Absolutely love these tires. M They are pretty much indestructible. Great price and fairly quick delivery. What more can you ask for.
