What technology does it use in its construction?
The Gator Hardshell comes in at the lower end of Continental's Premium Road clincher range, featuring a Standard universal compound optimised for performance and longevity and one of the toughest casings available. Deriving from the Gatorskin model, the casing has been further reinforced with a wider Poly-X anti punture breaker, in addition to the bead-to-bead Duraskin anti tear mesh, presenting the user with a tougher 3-ply carcass for the pinnacle of protection.
What is the intended use?
Better suited to Commuting, Training and Winter riding with the Road discipline, The Gator Hardshell delivers impeccable performance across a mixture of paved surfaces in varying weathers, with puncture and tear resistance being the uppermost priority, giving the rider ample reassurance against road debris and aggressive surfaces.
A fantastic road tyre from Continental with superior protection.
