About Continental Gator Skin 700x23C Road Bike Foldable Tyre
Continental Gator Skin road bike tire isn’t called “the reptile” just for nothing. Continental Gator Skin rolls just like the snake scales along the country road. Smooth and firm and under control. Continental, a tire company founded in 1871 has poured its experience and insights in designing the world’s best road bike, the Gator Skin.
Why the Gator Skin road bike tire is lauded as one of the best tire in the world sure has its reasons. One is PolyX Breaker, the puncture proofing technology that’s used in car is now used to reinforce road bike tires too. PolyX Breaker is another name for tightly woven high density polyester fibre in cross fashion to strengthen the puncture proofing abilities of Continental Gator Skin road bike tire, without affecting the rolling prowess of the tire. Sharing its puncture proofing abilities with a car tire, you can roll mindlessly over shards and other harmful foreign objects sticking out of the road.
To strengthen the sidewall, DuraSkin, a high-quality polyamide fabric is used which is as good as its puncture proofing abilities. Think of tough tests like Paris-Roubaix, where Gator Skin road bike tire stands true to its name.
PolyX Breaker, DuraSkin and wear-optimised tread compound are some boasting features indicating its extremely long service life.
Lightweight yet strong and durable.

To give you the idea of its power and performance abilities, GatorSkin is used in Grand Tours and other racing events.
About Bike Tires
Investing in a good robust bike tire means no stopping over punctures, care-free ride over potholes, shards, and other picky objects sticking out of the road. Before you buy a bike tire, make sure you’re aware of the correct bike size, your purpose of buying a specific tire and what kind of bike riding(road, urban, off-road) you’re into. Road tires are sleek and smooth, can retain high pressure. Hybrid tires are suitable for everyday city rides whereas mountain bike tires come equipped with treads for firm grip and handling over the uneven surface.
