    Description
    Continental Sprinter Gatorskin Tubular - The tub for 'getting the miles in' - Tubular version of the popular Ultra Gatorskin clincher - Durable, all weather black carbon tread mixture - Puncture protection belt under the tread, plus Duraskin anti tear fabric under tread and over the sidewalls Inheriting the best qualities of the highly popular Ultra Gatorskin road tyre, namely the durable carbon black tread mixture, the effective puncture protection breaker layer and the Duraskin anti-cut fabric. The Sprinter Gatorskin itself features the typically comfortable and light feel of a tubular tyre. The professional riders use a similar combination in their tyres for Paris - Roubaix and other equipment destroying classics in the springtime. If you want to 'get the miles in', but your streets aren't graced with the finest tarmac and you prefer the inconspicuous function of your tyres, then this is your tubular Safety System: Nylon / Aramid belt for lightweight, cost effective protection Additionally reinforced with kevlar resulting in a tyre construction that is highly resistant to pinches and cuts Protectes from urban debris such as broken glass and thorns The Safety System keeps the tyre lightweight and flexible. It adapts to the rolling motion and keeps the rolling resistance low The Safety System is built between the tread and casing. Here it protects the casing fabric (the air chamber) and contributes to a long lifespan of the tyre Dura Skin: Patented and lightweight sidewall protection Improved sidewall protection An extremely durable polyamide mesh that protects the extra-fine, high performance casing from cuts, punctures and abrasion Lightweight durability Less than 10g per tyre, Duraskin has a very high strength to weight ratio meaning that cyclists benefit from superb anti tear proctection whilst still experiencing lightweigh performance from their tyres. High Tech appearance You'll know when one of our tyres features Duraskin. The dark brown fabric is applied externally to the tyre casing prior to the addition of the tread in the manufacturing process. This means that Duraskin is the first line of defence against intrusion, increasing the chances of sidewall survival significantly in the event of hitting a foreign object - Rec inflation pressure: 115psi - Max inflation pressure: 170psi - Weight: 300g (700x22mm), 320g (700x25mm)

      1. very sturdy and dependable
        Just like the racier Competition this tubular is fantastic in my opinion, it is so sturdy that most of the thread is worn out and still can fend off gravel and microscopic pebbles on the road surface. On my Colnago C40, the rear one lasts about 4000 Km and I do a lot of acceleration with this bike. I use the 22 M/M size and the comfort at 9 bars is still very good, it corners very well and some cold days around the freezing mark the tire is not affected by the harsh temperature.
