5.0 out of 5 stars Great tyres, great price 16 Jun 2011
I have just purchased a set of Gatorskin hardshell 700 x 23. I have purchased puncture resistant tyres before, and found them to be a little sluggish, these Gatorskins however are very good, and quick. I have them pumped up to 8.5 bar and have had no problems. The grip is very good, my average speed has increased by around 3mph, I don't know if that is the tyres or my fitness increasing, but I am very happy with the ride. these tyres seem thinner than my previous tyres, even though they are apparently the same size and width.

I ride on some terrible roads, plenty of pot holes, and glass and it seems that these tyres haven't even been scratched!

Pros:
Fast, durable, puncture resistant, light, very thin, yet have plenty of grip.

Cons:
The only thing I would have liked would be a selection of colours, as my bike is black and can look a little dull, but the tyres are faultless so far. I do around 20 miles 4-5 times a week and they are still like new.

5.0 out of 5 stars awsome 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
I was dubious of these at first,mainly because id had nothing but luck with my specialized armadillos.
it was really hard to believe these would live up to them in the protection catergory,but the armadillos had worn,id read the reviews of how well these gatorskinz rolled so i took a chance.
Theyre awsome!! they do roll much more quickly than the specialized tyre,its a bit unnerving still when im flat out rounding a bend but im yet to come off or even skid out.
its been ridiculously wet this december and yet ive had no problems with handling at all,i commute 20miles a day so im out alot and have not punctured,my commute takes me on tarmac,gravel,grit and pot hole ridden stretches so they get a good workout.
ill buy these agin ,you should try them.

5.0 out of 5 stars No More Punctures 8 Nov 2012
By Richard Allen TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I appreciate I'm tempting fate here, but after switching to Gatorskins at the start of the year, and riding 5,000 miles on all sorts of road terrain, not a single puncture. I've managed to get 3,000 miles from a rear tyre before deciding the wear indicates it's time to change. Ease of fitting is pretty good; I've certaintly struggled less with these than some others I've tried. They aren't the lighest tyres out there, but that's the typical compromise you pay for puncture resistance. I think they get the balance just right. Inflated to 110 psi, they give a good, smooth ride and feel sure footed in the wet. I appreciate that eventually I'll run out of luck, but I'm certainly a convert to Gatorskins after a trouble free year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Commuter confidence 1 Aug 2012
By atkho
Verified Purchase
Apparently these provide extra protection - one puncture in 2.5 months through routes with broken glass, metal, pot holes galore and other dodgy debris that people dump on public streets/roadways isn't bad at all!

I am confident cycling with these tyres that I have a substantial amount of protection - they're difficult to remove and install when compared to ordinary tyres - maybe I need to be stronger though. There isn't too much sacrifice for rolling resistance either.

Update 2000 miles so far with 2 punctures but still look new - they've been abused in the wet, dry, sand, cobbles, littered cycleways..

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these tires 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
Admittedly i have only managed to get about 3,000 miles out of them, but i commute in the city of London which is a bed of glass shards most mornings. Will definitely replace like for like when i need to.

I've been running this for a couple of months now and they've massively dropped my rate of punctures, from one ever two weeks to one in about the last 8.

No issues so far and more importantly no punctures yet! no problems fitting them and no differences noted on speed times. If anything I am going faster.

5.0 out of 5 stars still puncture free
Covered over 500 miles on this tyre and not a single puncture (touch wood). I'm a big guy so keep the pressure pretty high to help protect it against impact but so far so good.
