The Continental Ultra Gatorskin is great value for money and sets the bar for a perfectly-balanced combination of ride quality and long-term durability. This unique tyre features a third Polyamide layer in the sidewall to create a unique 3-ply casing.
Continental have also added a wider Poly-X anti-puncture breaker belt under the tread that extends into the shoulder area for increased coverage. Duraskin ant-tear mesh on the outside of the casing results in a durable and fast commuter tyre. - A.D.

I bought this tyre with the view of cutting down on the way to regular puncture's I was getting around my area with glass and rubbish roads in South Auckland. From at least once every two weeks to one in the last 4 months. Same area and roads. Not the fastest but the hardest...just awesome.
This is the second pair of tires continental, they are good and very durable.
Used for many years
Highly recommend them for endurance and touring. I've used Gaterskins for many years. Never had any problems. Get about 6000 km out of a tyre with minimal punctures.
Gatorskin hard shell
Great for cycling around Sydney were glass and other debris on the road easily slow your day down! Great bargain for a pair under ninety bucks delivered. Perfect for fitness bikes/flat bars.
Perfect Training Tire
Have been riding the same set of Gatorskin Hardshells for 2 years. I've put lots of miles on them and they are hard miles as I am a Clydesdale - 245lbs., so the rear tire gets a workout. Also the roads here are full of debris, particularly after the snow melts (Canada). I run 25mms and inflate at slightly less tire pressure compared to the 23mms I used to use. So, it seems they are softer. I run the back at 115psi and the front about 95lbs. I could probably go lower but why tempt a pinch flat? Highly recommended, especially if you, like me hate flats. Hope this helps,
Gatorskins Hard Shell
A little heavier than others, but the ride quality and "anti-flat" factor well worth the trade off.
I commute on a fixed gear bike with bolt on axles so changing a flat is slow and painful. I need a highly puncture and slash proof tyre but one that still rides ok. The Gatorskin Hardshell has about the right balance: it is pretty bomb proof, the rolling resistance is not great but not terrible either and it grips pretty well as long as you don't expect it to perform like a pure race tyre. One thing to note is that it is worth regularly checking the tread for embedded glass etc. and removing what you find. Otherwise they will eventually work their way through, causing a puncture.
First time I use these tires, but from now on I will not use another ones, my cycling buddies many of them use this brand. I belong to a San Diego California Cycling Club named NCCC, we are more than 100 members and a cycling buddy suggested I should try this brand of tires, I am very happy with my new tires.
Great tires. I swear by them. They are expensive but worth every penny. Imagine never getting a flat again. I know , I haven't gotten a puncture since I switched to Gatorskins 3 years ago. I'm not a racer but I am an avid cyclist. I' m out on club rides twice a week from April to November.
