This foldable Continental Gator Hardshell clincher tire offers all the benefits of its cousin, the GatorSkin, with enhanced longevity and protection.

  • Features

    • Thicker, high-mileage rubber compound lasts longer than the GatorSkin; smooth center with subtle shoulder tread supplies minimal rolling resistance with good cornering grip
    • PolyX Breaker puncture protection extends from shoulder-to-shoulder for protection under the entire tread
    • DuraSkin sidewall protection delivers excellent resistance to thorns, shards and other puncture instigators
    • 180 tpi casing is supple for great road feel; folding bead helps keep weight low
    • Continental Gator Hardshell foldable tire has a recommended pressure of 95 psi (6.5 bar) for the 25c size, 110 psi (7.5 bar) for the 23c size; max 120 psi (8.2 bar) for both
