The Continental Ultra Gatorskin Road Tire's are handmade in Germany.
PolX Breaker): New processing techniques now allow even better puncture protection with the use of our new PolyX Breaker. Based upon years of success using polyester in our automobile tires, PolyX marks the first time we have used polyester as breaker material in our bicycles. However, the advantage of our new fabrice lies in details. The fibers overlap frequently in the manufacturing process yielding a very dense fabric with minimal space between each individual thread. Result: whether sharp thorns or large shards, PlyX is failsafe and is highly-resistant to any kind of foreign body without reducing the rolling resistance.
DuraSkin: Tires with DuraSkin sidewall protection have to roll with the punches. On messenger bikes, these tire skid along curbs, on touring bikes, they cross continents without fail, and in professional cycling they must endure tough test such as Paris-Roubaix. The high-quality, polyamide fabric reliably protects the core casing of the tire from scuffs and cuts under the worst conditions. DuraSkin-equipped tire stand out from the others with their trademark brown sidewalls.
