The unbeaten number one by Continental for fixed riders, messengers and commuting – now available in Germany.
The GatorSkin folding tire is the right tire for the urban jungle. It adds a certain something and anti-flat protection to commuting bikes.
The PolyX Breaker insert is placed directly under the center tread for effectively puncture protection. Thanks to DuraSkin sidewall protection it is able to roll with the punches. The wear-optimized tread compound provides extra long durability.
With PolyX Breaker, Continental brings PKW know-how to the bicycle tyre segment: Polyester has been used successfully for years in car tyres and been tried and tested many times. The extremely resistant polyester fibre is woven tightly crosswise. In this way, a very high fabric density is reached which not only makes the Breaker more resistant to foreign objects but is also especially resistant to punctures. The rolling resistance is also not negatively affected by the PolyX Breaker®.
Tyres with DuraSkin sidewall protection have to be able to roll with the punches. They are used under the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, the tyres skid along curbs; on touring bikes, they cross continents without wearing out. In racing cycling, they have to endure tough tests such as the Paris-Roubaix. The high-quality polyamide fabric protects the tyre casing against the worst conditions. These tyres stand out thanks to their brown sidewalls.
