Great tyre!

PostedDecember 14, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Continental Gatorskin has been well known for being one of the best tyres in the market and to my experience they are one of the best. puncture proof is very good and rolling resistance is reasonably very low. they are a bit heavy but not that it would make any difference to your ride.
I recommend this product to all

Top tyre

PostedOctober 7, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Cons: Heavy, not puncture proof
As I have 27" wheels on a vintage Raleigh, it can be difficult to find a good tyre. When my front tyre had worn though (after a nasty glass cut), I needed a quick replacement. Evans seem to always have the 27" Gatorskins in stock, allowing me to get on the road as quickly as possible. The tyre itself is nice. It is fairly wide for a road tyre, but it is still quick and fairly lightweight. Don't expect to never get punctures again, they are probably slightly more resistant than average. As long as you don't expect it be bullet-proof it is a great tyre at a good price.

Excellent puncture resistance

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I have used Gatorskins on my touring / road bike for the last few years. Good rolling resistance and few if any punctures. An excellent product. I am delighted this product is still available in 27 inch.

Ticked all boxes

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable
Early to tell yet, but tyres were easy to fit and so far feel good on road. Restricted options for old style 27 inch wheels, but fortunately suited what I was looking for.
