Description

Description

The Continental Grand Prix 5000 road bike tyre is the successor to the legendary Grand Prix 4000S II road bike tyre. The Grand Prix 5000 outperforms its predecessor in practically every respect. With lower rolling resistance, lower weight and more comfort, the Continental Grand Prix 5000 racing tyre has dethroned the 4000S II after many years of successful rule.

The latest technologies
The Grand Prix 5000 road bike tyre features the 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 tyre’s tread shoulders have been roughened to give the Continental GP 5000 optimal traction when cornering. This laser profile also improves air flow around the tyre for enhanced aerodynamics.

More stability and comfort
The Continental GP 5000's carcass has also been improved. The new 330 tpi, 3-layer construction is more rigid than that of its predecessor. This has improved the GP 5000's stability in turns and at high speeds. The tyre also has an Active Comfort layer. As the name suggests, Active Comfort enhances your riding comfort. The Active Comfort layer absorbs shocks and dampens vibrations from the road surface without affecting rolling resistance. Thus, the Grand Prix 5000 gives you a comfortable ride with optimal rolling resistance.

Improved puncture protection
Lastly, the Continental Grand Prix 5000 road tyre features an updated version of Continental’s Vectran anti-puncture strip, an additional inner layer that offers increased protection against punctures. According to Continental, this strip reduces the chance of punctures occuring by 20% compared to its predecessor. In this way, Continental makes a considerable contribution to the durability of its Grand Prix road bike tyres. With the Grand Prix 5000 road bike tyre, Continental has introduced the successor to the throne!

Technology

Black Chili Compound
Continental's designers went back to the drawing board to further perfect the Black Chili compound of the Grand Prix 4000 SII. And they have succeeded! Various test results have shown that the Continental GP5000 scores higher on rolling resistance, durability and wear resistance.

LazerGrip technology
Continental has treated the edges of the Grand Prix 5000 with a laser. The laser profile has optimal adherence to the road for better grip when cornerning. You can really feel the difference at high speed and in wet conditions!

Active Comfort
A shock-absorbing layer has been applied under the skin of the tyre. This Active Comfort layer dampens vibrations from the road surface. The increased comfort allows you to continue in an aeordynamic position for a longer time and gives you an unparalleled cycling experience.

Vectran Breaker layer
The Vectran Breaker layer is a puncture protection layer under the tread. This strip prevents sharp stones, twigs and shards of glass from penetrating your carcass into the inner tube. This anti-puncture strip offers even more effective protection against punctures.
