Rated 3 out of 5 by Tommetalmonkey Poor puncture protection
I bought these tyres on the basis of the supposed puncture protection and good reviews. They grip well and handle fine however the puncture resistance seems to be highly exaggerated. I use the gator hardshell tyres on my other bike which are far better and get far fewer flats in the same conditions on the same cycle path. For road use only they may be satisfactory but if your commute includes cycle paths (Tarmac but often dirty) then get something more durable. Have had 4 punctures in 2 weeks, each one new, not old debris in tyre or rim. Going to try the super sport plus on my commuter now and hope for better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tonyj666 Great puncture resistance and roll really well - the perfect tyre for all seasons
I use these tyres on my commute (28c) and winter bikes (23c) and despite all the winter debris washed into the roads have ridden a minimum of 10k with no punctures! .They roll really well and can be used throughout the year.
I tend to check/remove any flints etc from the tyres on a regular basis and keep the psi fairly high

Rated 5 out of 5 by laguillotine Excellent winter
I have been running these tyres (28mm @ 90psi) since October. That is approx 1700mls so far, on a mixture good and bad roads (Devon lanes), and on fast rides as well as slow rides.
So far I have had no punctures, no skids/slips. Therefore I have to give these tyres 5/5
They seem to roll well and I feel more confidant in bad conditions compared to when I used to run gators.
Only bad things I have found are; Mounted on my rims these 28s only measure 26mm, so not as much cushioning as I wanted. Also I find them a tight fit, I damaged the tube on the first fit. But with no punctures that is not a big issue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by smedrick The best
These tyres are excellent all round.
I use the 28mm version on my 'bad weather' bike which is a Genesis Croix de fer.
I use them in ALL weather conditions and they never miss a beat, highly durable, great rolling resistance, one of those products you can fit and forget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuffwin Can't be faulted
I bought the 28c version of these for the winter and I couldn't be happier. I have ridden almost every day in the last month and the tyres have coped with everything. I haven't punctured at all, despite the extra debris on the roads from the crazy weather we've been having and grip levels are fantastic. As I bought the 28c version, instead of my usual 23c, my bike is much more comfortable and copes better with the awful roads I ride on too. I love these so much that I might leave them on all year round.

Rated 2 out of 5 They might be all seasons but theyll only last you one
Dissapointing performance compared to past Continental Tires. I rode these for about 6 months and the rear is worn to the thread in spots. I do ride heavily but just not worth the price. Also very flat prone compared to other continental tires.

Set up to a 25mm Gatorskin rear, the 23mm 4-season should have 'quickened' the steering, pressured up at 90lbs front and rear for the 2013 NZ Taupo run, I credit these tyres for keeping me off the deck, gale force winds were blowing competitors off the road..
