Continental GatorSkin DuraSkin Road Cycling Tyre
Having outsold our next most popular tyre by almost 20 times, the Continental Gator Skin with DuraSkin is unquestionably the public's favourite road bike tyre, and we're really not surprised. Available in a wide range of sizes, the 180TPI Gator Skin is a fast-rolling and incredibly durable tyre. Offering unrivalled protection from its Dura Skin polyamide mesh layered fabric all around the casing, with an additional Poly X Breaker reinforcement directly under the tread, punctures quickly become a thing of the past when rolling on the Gator Skin. What really sets the Gator Skin apart from other tyres is that its superb reliability doesn't come at the cost of performance. The slick tread pattern offers exceptional grip in both wet and dry conditions, with supple handling and a low rolling resistance keeping you feeling in control without slowing you down. Key features: Ultra-lightweight cut-resistant Dura Skin sheath around the tyre casing Poly X Breaker directly under the tread for extreme puncture resistance Natural rubber slick tread for reliable all-weather grip 3-ply 180TPI construction Recommended for high-mileage training, winter riding & commuting
Latest Bike Tyre Deals
I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles. A few years later this evolved into Bikes @ Butlers to highlight their intentions to move the business online with the .com boom and subsequent rise in online sales. At the end of May in 1999 Wiggle.co.uk was launched by Mitch Dall and Harvey Jones. A rapid growth resulted in a need to move premises, and so in 2002 it relocated to Jackson Close, Portsmouth. This strong growth continued, and Wiggle has relocated twice since, the first being to Lakeside 1000, and then leaving Pompey altogether for a huge warehouse located centrally in Wolverhampton. Similarly to CRC, Wiggle stock many own brands, such as dhb, Eastway, Lifeline and Verenti, as well as bike, components and clothing from all of the leading manufacturers. Despite it's origins as a bike shop, Wiggle continue to stock equipment and apparel for not just road cycling and mountain biking, with extensive product lines for other disciplines such as triathlon kit, children's and commuters products and also running clothing and accessories. Prompt in delivery, and offering efficient returns and competitive pricing, Wiggle remain a firm favourite amongst serious and recreational cyclists alike, not least because of the customary bags of Haribo they include free with orders to keep their customers sweet!
