Does the gator hardshell come in schrader? If not what is going to be my best tire for rough conditions?

Responded on

Schrader is a valve type and is an attribute of the tube, not the tire. That being said, I've never seen a tube that came in the sizes of these tires (700x23,25) that had a schrader valve. This is chiefly because schrader valves are larger and require a larger hole in the rim. On road bike/racing wheels, this would weaken the rim because they're already so narrow so they're not used much.
