1. A continuous analyte sensor, the continuous analyte sensor comprising:

  • an elongated core comprising a working electrode, wherein the elongated core comprises an inner core and an outer core covering the inner core, wherein the inner core comprises a first material, wherein the outer core comprises a second material selected from the group consisting of;

    platinum, platinum iridium, gold, palladium, iridium, alloys thereof, graphite, carbon, and a conductive polymer, wherein the first material is different from the second material;

    an insulating layer covering at least a portion of the elongated core;

    a conductive layer comprising a reference electrode or a counter electrode, wherein the conductive layer covers at least a portion of the insulating layer; and

    a membrane covering at least a portion of the working electrode;

    wherein the sensor has a Young'"'"'s modulus of from about 180 GPa to about 220 GPa.
