Continental Gator Skin Folding Road Tyre Technologies:
PolyXbreaker - New processing techniques enable us to improve existing technology resulting in such features like Poly-X-Breaker. We use polyester as a breaker material and rely on our experience in car tyres to utililize this material to the maximum benefits in cycle tyres. The advantages lie in the additinal crossing of the individual fabric weaves in manufacturing, giving a densley woven seal with minimal space between the threads - result, Poly-X is very resistant to foreign objects without increasing the rolling resistance of the tyre
DuraSkin - Improved sidewall protection. An extremely durable polyamide mesh that protects the extra-fine, high performance casing from cuts, punctures and abrasion. Lightweight durability. Less than 10g per tyre, Duraskin has a very high strength to weight ratio meaning that cyclists benefit from superb anti tear proctection whilst still experiencing lightweigh performance from their tyres. High Tech appearance. You'll know when one of our tyres features Duraskin. The dark brown fabric is applied externally to the tyre casing priot to the addition of the tread in the manufacturing process. This means that Duraskin is teh first line of defence against intrusion, increasing the chances of sidewall survival significantly in the event of hitting a foreign object.
