The classic commuter/endurance tyre.
Early "puncture resist" tyres tended to have a dead, unforgiving
ride. The extra layers needed to provide puncture protection added
unwanted weight and stiffness, compromising the ride quality.
Conti's Gatorskins were among the first to successfully address
this. Yes, they're not quite as light as an 'unprotected' tyre, but
they are more than light enough for daily use and give great road
As their design has evolved over the years these have become one
of those "go to" tyres that we never hesitate to recommend.
Whether you're riding on city streets or out in the middle of
nowhere, if you want the best balance of puncture protection and
rideability these are the tyres for you.
