The Continental GatorSkin Folding Road Tyre. A durable carbon black mixture, a well regarded puncture protection system and the DuraSkin-anti-cut fabric turn the Ultra GatorSkin into a real long distance runner. In varying widths of 23mm it can be used on the way to work as well as training for road races or for sportives and audax. A durable, tough tyre at a really nice price.
Tires with DuraSkin sidewall protection have to be able to roll with the punches. They are used under the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, the tires skid along curbs; on touring bikes, they cross continents without wearing out. In racing cycling, they have to endure tough tests such as the Paris-Roubaix. The high-quality polyamide fabric protects the tire casing against the worst conditions. These tires stand out thanks to their brown sidewalls.
PolyX Breaker Technology
With their PolyX Breaker, Continental bring PKW know-how to the bike tyre arena – Polyester has been used successfully for years in car tyres and been tried and tested many times. The extremely resistant polyester fibre is woven tightly crosswire making a very high fabric density which not only makes the Breaker more resistant to foreign objects, but is also resistant to punctures. The rolling resistance is not effected either by the PolyX Breaker.
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.
