Like a turtle shell for your tubes.
If you log more miles commuting to work and around town than some pros do in training, the Continental Gator Hardshell Road Tire is the answer to the spare tubes, patch kits, and pumps you’ve been hauling around. Modeled on the legendary Gatorskin, the Hardshell ups the ante with full bead-to-bead Duraskin mesh to keep punctures to an absolute minimum.

- Full bead-to-bead Duraskin protection for no mysterious sidewall slashes
- Hardshell protection (3-ply, each 60 TPI)
- Reinforced with DuraSkin (polyamide mesh sidewalls)
- PolyX Breaker protection
- All-season compound
