Continental Gator Hardshell 700c Tyre

The Gator Hardshell is a heavier duty, even more puncture resistant version of Continental's legendary Gatorskin tyres.

With its Poly-X anti-puncture breaker belt extending under the tyre tread and shoulders, its Hardshell anti-cut casing and its DuraSkin sidewalls, the Gator Hardshell is a reinforced version of the already highly rated Continental Ultra GatorSkin, revered for offering serious puncture resistance without over-compromising the ride qualities you look for in a good quality road bike tyre.

As such, the Continental Gator Hardshell makes an exceptional training/commuter tyre that retains Continental's trademark performance.

  • Wire bead.
  • Inflate to 120psi.
  • 340g (700x23), 410g (700x28) - checked at Bike Co-op HQ in January 2016.

'A wider PolyX Breaker under the tread centre and shoulders provides for great reliability. The three-ply layer covers the entire tyre and makes it a real bastion against urban detritus. The outer sidewalls of the tyre are reinforced with DuraSkin fabric providing even more reliablility due to the casing being so well protected. Hardshell tyres are the puncture-resistant flagship amongst racing tyres, produced exclusively in Germany.

After extensive market research, feedback from commuters all over the world showed us that a new type of tyre was in demand.

Our Gatorskin race bike tyre had filled a gap for hardcore commuters but they wanted more; MORE casing; MORE breaker; MORE protection...

Taking the Gatorskin as our base, we've added a third Polyamide layer in the sidewall to make a unique 3-ply casing for the Gator Hardshell.

We've also added a wider Poly-X anti puncture breaker belt under the tread which extends down into the shoulder area for wider coverage.

Add this to the Duraskin anti-tear mesh on the outside of the casing and you are presented with a tougher commuter which is also fast.'
