Pros & Cons

  • Due to the lack of an inner tube and the use of less material, the tubeless version has 5 percent less rolling resistance and an improved puncture resistance of 5 percent compared to the clincher version.
  • The roughened shoulders on the tread ensure an optimal grip on the asphalt.
  • The new version of Continental's Vectran anti-puncture strip provides good protection against punctures.
  • The Active Comfort layer has a shock absorbing effect and dampens the vibrations from the road surface, without affecting the rolling resistance.

Description

The Grand Prix 5000 TL is the tubeless version of the Grand Prix 5000 road bike tyre. Despite the use of the same technologies in both models, there are still a few differences. Due to the lack of an inner tube and the use of less material, the tubeless version has 5 percent less rolling resistance and an improved puncture resistance of 5 percent compared to the clincher version.

The carcass of the Grand Prix 5000 TL consists of a 180tpi, 3-layer build. This way Continental has picked the perfect balance between easy mounting and firm fastening on the rim. The updated version of Continental’s Black Chilli Compound ensures an optimal balance between the rolling resistance and grip. Thanks to the ‘Lazer Grip technology’, the shoulders on the tread of the Grand Prix 5000 TL have been roughened. This way the GP 5000 TL has the best grip when turning. Furthermore, this technology improves the air flow around the tyre for better aerodynamics.

The Continental GP 5000 TL also has an updated version of Continental’s Vectran anti-puncture strip. This extra inner layer offers an improved protection against punctures. Continental is thus making a significant contribution to the durability of the new Grand Prix tyres. Finally, the tyre is equipped with an Active Comfort layer. As the name suggests, Active Comfort ensures a high level of driving 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 TL ensures a comfortable ride with optimal rolling resistance.

With that said, Continental introduces a new heir to the throne: the Grand Prix 5000 TL!

Too tight - couldn't fit them.

These tyres are just too small to fit my Giant carbon wheels - gone back to Giant Gavia race 0 tyres - fitted by hand no problem.

Cons

  • Very difficult to fit
  • Too tight to fit by hand

Excellent

Easy to mount, doesn’t cut as easy as Schwalbe pro one, compliant ride. Very good tubeless tyre.

Great tyres for racing

First time user of tubeless tyres, fitted reasonable easy with no issues. Tried first time with no sealant and stayed up over night. Put sealant in next day. Tyres feel slightly faster that the GPS 4000 but that may be just me. Running lower pressures so comfort is better and slightly wider 28. So hopefully miles of riding with no flats, time will tell.

Pros

  • Light
  • No pinch flats

Cons

  • Expensive

Easy to fit and so comfy on the road

The tyres sealed easily. Were easy to fit. Are. Very quiet whilst riding. Lower pressures mean they are so much more comfortable than tyres with higher pressures

Pros

  • Easy to fit
  • Quiet
  • Low pressure
