There's a reason Continental calls its Gator Hardshell folding tyre 'The Armored Reptile' - it's built tough!

The Gator Hardshell provides everyday road riders with extra puncture resistance and delivers more reliability for commuters. Like a reptile, the design boasts some of the best protection thanks to Hardshell ProTection and an extremely long service life thanks to a wear-optimised tread compound.

Hardshell tyres are the puncture-resistant flagship amongst racing tyres – produced exclusively in Germany.


Hardshell technology - Puncture protection and mileage are the strengths of Hardshell-ProTection.

A wider PolyX Breaker, the specialist against punctures under the tread centre and shoulders provides for great reliability.

The three-ply, each layer with 60 TPI, carcass covers the entire tyre and makes it a real bastion against urban detritus.

The outer sidewalls of the tyre are reinforced with DuraSkin® fabric providing even more reliablility due to the casing being so well protected.
