Continental Gator Hardshell (Folding)

Continental's ultra-tough Gator Hardshell combines 3 flat-protection technologies into the ultimate distance and training tire. It features a flat-busting, bead-to-bead layer of DuraSkin and an extra-wide Poly-X Breaker anti-puncture strip. But Conti wasn't done yet. They added material in the tread to improve mileage and lend another level of puncture resistance. Plus, the folding bead keeps the weight low.

Cons

    Comments:

    I've been riding these tires for two years. I've had TWO flats, that's it. The first one was caused by launching off a curb, and the other was from a goathead that somehow penetrated the hard shell. They even survived a wreck where the bike was totally destroyed. These tires will not eliminate every flat but they will eliminate 95% of them.

    Comments:

    These are the only tires that I now use. They are very resistant to flats and only have a small weight penalty. They are comfortable keep me going on longer rides. I no longer flat like I did in the past. Most of the people that I do 60 to 100 mile rides with also use the Hardshell Gatorskins.

    My first folding tire

      Comments:

      In the past I've mostly spent no more than $30 on a tire, but was getting a lot of flats and wanted to save a little weight as I now have a huge hill to tackle on my commute and every little bit counts. About 1,500 miles in and zero flats later I'm happy with the extra money I spent.

      Comments:

      These seems in these tires separated on only the second ride with under 90 psi. I don't see how this company can be taken seriously putting out junk like this.
