Product Details

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.

      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.
