The Continental Gatorskin 700C Duraskin Wired Road Tyre is a durable, fast yet tough tyre at a really nice price. The most popular 700 x 23 tyre in the UK. The Duraskin external mesh forms a protective shield over the entire casing to prevent cuts, punctures and abrasions. The slick German made natural rubber tread is designed to perform well in wet/wintery conditions. Intended for high mileage winter training for serious cyclists. Quality German made natural rubber. Praised by both the press and thousands of satisfied users. Offers outstanding grip in all conditions.
Duraskin is an extremely durable polyamide mesh that protects the extra-fine, high performance casing from cuts, punctures and abrasion. Less than 10g per tyre, Duraskin has a very high strength to weight ratio meaning that cyclists benefit from superb anti-tear protection whilst still experiencing lightweight performance from their tyres. You'll know when one of Continental's 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.
