Continental continues to push tire innovation. The Gatorskin features their PolyX Breaker - a woven fiber borrowed from car tires - to resist punctures. The sidewall casing is protected by Continental's DuraSkin, an extremely tough but flexible fabric. They're light, fast, and strong, with great grip.
Maybe the best endorsement is this: most of our staff ride Gatorskins.
Handmade in Germany. Price is PER tire ($60 = 1 tire).
