The Sprinter GatorSkin inherits the best qualities of the ever-popular original Sprinter, namely the durable tread compound and effective puncture resistance. GatorSkin simply adds confidence-inspiring durability and the sidewall protection of DuraSkin to an already race-proven winner. Pro riders use a similar combination in their tires for Paris-Roubaix and other equipment-destroying classics in the springtime. If you want to get the miles in, but your streets aren't covered with the finest tarmac, this is your tubular.
Look for the brown sidewalls, and you know you've got DuraSkin protecting your
tires. The high-quality polyamide fabric helps prevent cuts and abrasions when riding in the harshest conditions.
Made up of Kevlar-reinforced, high-strength nylon fabric, the SafetySystem protects against cuts and punctures but remains light and flexible. It provides a bit of extra comfort and a longer lifespan for the tire as well.
Tubular tires are compatible with tubular rims and are installed with glue or a special adhesive tape. Tubular tires will not work on clincher rims (the standard rim type). If you have any questions about compatibility or mounting, please contact us for details.
