The long distance runner. A durable carbon black mixture, a well regarded puncture protection system and the DuraSkin-anti-cut fabric turn the GatorSkin into a real long distance runner. In varying widths of 23mm and 25mm it can be used on the way to work as well as training for road races or for sportives and audax. A durable, tough tire at a really nice price.
Puncture protection and mileage are the strengths of Hardshell-ProTection. A wider PolyX Breaker, the specialist against punctures under the tread center and shoulders provides for great reliability. The three ply – each layer with 60 TPI – carcass covers the entire tire and makes it a real bastion against urban detritus. The outer sidewalls of the tire are reinforced with DuraSkin fabric providing even more reliability due to the casing being so well protected. Hardshell tires are the puncture-resistant flagship amongst racing tires – produced exclusively in Germany.
More than 100 years experience in the development and production of bicycle tyres has made Continental a unique company within the industry. Continental is the only German bicycle tyre manufacturer to produce its tyres in Germany. Knowing this serves as a mighty incentive to there engineers and everyone else involved in the manufacturing process to constantly strive for further innovations. In their technology and development center in Korbach, they are constantly developing new revolutionary technologies such as the unbeatable Black Chili Compound and the ultimate Vectran? Breaker anti-puncture technology, both used at the top end of race sport. These technologies demand sophisticated processes to ensure legendary end-product quality, and these innovations as well as the new “ProTection” and ”RaceSport” technology for MTB tyres, can only be manufactured in Continental's factory in Germany. In order to offer the best tyre for any application, they rely equally on dialogue with professional racers, hobby cyclists and everyday bike riders. This results not only in high-end products for top sports applications such as the new Podium TT or the revolutionary downhill tyre “Der Kaiser”, but also tyres for everyday use like the new innovative combination EcoContact/EcoContact Plus as a companion to the latest e-bike trend.
