A durable carbon black mixture, a well-regarded puncture protection system and the DuraSkin™ anti-cut fabric turn the Continental Gator Hardshell road tire into a real long-distance runner. Available in varying widths, it can be used on the way to work as well as training for road races or for sportives and audax. It's a durable, tough tire at a really nice price.
HardShell: 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 180 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
DuraSkin: Tires with DuraSkin sidewall protection have to roll with the punches. These tires are used in the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, on epic travel bikes crossing continents without wearing through and in professional cycling they have to endure tough tests such as Paris-Roubaix. The high-quality polyamide fabric reliably protects the casing of the tire and protects the tire from the worst conditions. These tires stand out with their brown sidewalls. The slick natural rubber tread is designed to perform well in wet/wintery conditions
PolyX Breaker Technology: With its PolyX Breaker, Continental brings its PKW know-how to the bike tire arena – Polyester has been used successfully for years in car tires and has been tried and tested many times. The extremely resistant polyester fiber 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 affected either by the PolyX Breaker
