Just spent two hours walking home with a flat tyre from Ealing to Harrow, even the slime was not able to deal with the gash I had. Kicking myself for not buying a similar deal when I saw it last month.
Bought this I got home first thing when I got home.

Look for that more expensive hard skin gattors. There are no savings in puncture protection. This are light, however still possible to puncture. I have bike with this tires which had square piece of glass in it and tube still keep pressure but hole in tyre left (I need to patch it by glue anyway). Please be aware there is no won-won situation and your tires will be cut and holed with time. There is no magic in it. Sometimes when I read about gators I feel like people overreacting. Be aware of fact that tyres are just bicycle tyres not car tyres. Will still need maintenance. I changed all my tyres to gator (as there is not much choice) but there is no magic in that tyres.

Bloody hell that was hard to read...

I have gatorskins. they are pretty good. I find the fronts last 2700 miles, rears do about 1600. after that the rears get a bit squared off and invariably suffer from cuts. when I change them they always have bits of glass embedded in some of the cuts, but.... no punctures. touch wood. they are still capable of ludicrous speed e.g. 45mph+ downhill.

Recently bought two Continental TopContact Pros for £50 a piece. That's what I could call a rip-off of the century!

That's a very decent price, it's very very close the price i'd get them at trade through work... So I doubt you'd ever see them much cheaper than this! Decent tyres too, Conti GP4000's are nicer but obviously more expensive! I'd be all over these at this price

I have gators on my mountain bike, very nice tyres. Only had one puncture in the 3 years I have been using them, but that was because I was cycling over rubbish that someone had dumped on a gravel path and got a sharp splinter in one. If I use my standard tyres, I seem to get a puncture every few weeks (road conditions are very bad on my commute).

sorry to hear about your frightful gash........

Seems a lot for a pair of bike tyres. Last pair of semi slicks I bought were less than £20, continental tyres.

is this the only size they have then as I have no idea what mine are ?

Why don't you carry a couple of spare tubes,or was it your tyre that was beyond redemption?
Either way,bad luck,mate.

Great price for great tires. Pity they aren't in 700 x 28c -oh well

I've been commuting using pair of these every week since feb and no punctures! Just paid £50 for a pair elsewhere - doh!

Anyone know if they offer more than higher protection from pinch flats?

how are people paying £50 a pair for the ultra gatorskins when the first 2 pages of google shopping (sorted by price) shows numerous shops doing them for ~£21 each?!

Heat and a pair reserved, my commuter tyres are wearing a bit square so well timed.

theres a huge difference between a £10 and a £30 tyre. Folding Kevlar beads, kevlar puncture-proof belts, different compounds used in different parts of the tyre (harder centre band, softer sides for more grip when cornering and more even wear) higher thread-per-inch count carcasses (60pi in a cheap tyre, 200+pi in more expensive) which gives less rolling resistance...

ahh sorry mine were folding not wire bead

Try Michelin Lithion 2. Using them at the moment and they live up to their glowing reviews. Plus, only £25 a pair if you look around. Have used many, Ultremo ZX (great grip but garbage durability), Pro 4 (great grip, but the 25mm is massive and rubbed my frame, Ultremo 25s didn't), plus other brands.

Does anyone know a good deal on Continental 4 Seasons? They were £38 a pair from Cycle Surgery a while ago.

Also go via TCB for 3%

good to hear, I nearly bought some Pro4s when they were doing Lithions free with them as a promo, but was actually put off the Pro4 by how quickly my Pro3s have worn. Bought a set of these gators for the winter/commuter and have some GP4000s waiting for the summer bike but may well dabble with michelin again next time.
