Ideal when it comes to extremely long service life, for the next tour or the commute. Setting the standard for durability and grip quality, the Gator Hardshell model is ideal for daily commuting and is a high mileage rider’s dream tyre.

These layers are also combined with a PolyX Breaker that covers the tyre’s entire tread for even better puncture resistance.

More is what you get

DuraSkin®: Tyres with DuraSkin sidewall protection have to roll with the punches. These tyres are used in the harshest conditions. On messenger bikes, on epic travel bikes crossing continents without wearing through and in professional cycling they have to endure tough tests such as Paris-Roubaix.

The high-quality polyamide fabric reliably protects the casing of the tyre and protects the tyre from the worst conditions. These tyres stand out with their brown sidewalls. The slick natural rubber tread is designed to perform well in wet/wintery conditions

PolyX Breaker: Polyester has been used successfully for years in car tyres and been tried and tested many times. The extremely resistant polyester fibre is woven tightly, making a very high fabric density that makes the Breaker more resistant to foreign objects and more resistant to punctures.

The rolling resistance is not affected either by the PolyX Breaker Hardshell: 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 threeply – each layer with 60 tpi – carcass covers the entire tyre and makes it a real bastion against urban debris. The outer sidewalls of the tyre are reinforced with DuraSkin® fabric providing even more reliability due to the casing being so well protected. Hardshell tyres are the puncture-resistant flagship amongst racing tyres and are produced exclusively in Germany
