Description

Description

The Continental Grand Prix 5000 is the successor to the legendary Grand Prix 4000S II. The Grand Prix 5000 tyre improves the performance of its predecessor in all regards. With less rolling resistance, lighter weight and higher comfort, the Grand Prix 4000S II has been surpassed after 14 long years.

Equipped with the latest technologies.
The Grand Prix 5000 is equipped with Continental’s latest technologies. An updated version of Continental’s Black Chilli Compound results in a perfect balance between rolling resistance and traction. With the ‘Lazer Grip technology’, the Grand Prix’s tread shoulders have been roughened. This provides the GP 5000 with excellent traction in turns. This laser profile also improves air flow around the tyre for a more aerodynamic shape.

More stability and comfort.
On top of that, the GP 5000 has an improved carcass. The new 330tpi, 3-layer build is more rigid than its predecessor. This provides the GP 5000 with improved stability in turns and at high speeds. The tyre is also equipped with an Active Comfort layer. As its name suggests, Active Comfort ensures high riding comfort. The Active Comfort layer has shock-absorbing properties and reduces vibrations caused by the road surface without impacting rolling resistance. Because of this, the Grand Prix 5000 provides a comfortable ride with optimal rolling resistance.

Improved puncture protection.
Lastly, this Continental tyre has an updated version of Continental’s Vectran anti-puncture strip. This extra inner layer offers extra protection against punctures. Continental claims this strip reduces chances of getting a puncture by 20 percent compared to its predecessor. In this way, Continental contributes greatly to the Grand Prix tyres’ sustainability. With the Grand Prix 5000, Continental introduces the new champion.

Nice tyre but splits too easily

This is the 3rd tyre to have split this summer - I do a lot of miles, but can't help be disappointed by that. That said, it's a lovely rolling tyre.
