Description

The Continental GP 5000 is the new successor to the throne.
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, improved puncture 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.

Super smooth & comfortable but cornering isn’t the best!

Amazing ride quality and a step up in comfort vs my beloved Schwalbe Ones. However this silky smoothness and unreal comfort comes at a cost. When cornering hard on quick descents the sidewalls flex a bit too much for my liking. Otherwise an excellent tyre.

Pros

  • Super smooth
  • Very comfortable

Cons

  • Sidewall flex when cornering hard

Top of it’s class

Originally I was looking to purchase the GP 4000, mainly because it was a little cheaper but I decided to try the 5000. Brilliant tyre and so. easy to fit on my Kysrium sl wheels. Speedy delivery from Mantel so what’s not to like.

Pros

  • Price
  • Delivery

Very lively tyre which really lets you feel the road.

I road these for the first time at the Worlds Sportive in Yorkshire and punctured first time out! I bought hoping their lightweight would also have a higher degree of puncture resistance but to be fair it was an atrocious day raining for most of it. I rode all last week in Kefalnia and they were superb! It’s very mountainous so the lightweight combined with responsiveness and grip made for some exciting riding. I would recommend and will now try with latex tubes.

Pros

  • Weight
  • Responsiveness
  • Road feel
  • Grip

Grippy and unbelievably comfortable in 32mm

Bought these for my winter bike and thought I’d try out the 32mm version. So glad I did. So comfortable and skims over bumps and uneven surfaces. Makes ride much more comfortable.

Pros

  • Grippy, comfortable

Cons

  • Still a bit pricey, but good deal through Mantel

  • puncture resistant

Cons

  • not the lightest

Detailed product description

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

LazerGrip technology.
Continental has finished the edges of the Grand Prix 5000 with a laser. The laser profile adapts itself optimally to the road surface. This gives you an increased grip in turns. In high speed and wet conditions you can actually feel the difference!

Active Comfort.
A shock-absorbing layer is applied under the skin. This Active Comfort layer dampens vibrations and vibrations from the road surface. The increased comfort allows you to stay in an aerodynamic position for longer. This gives you an unparalleled driving experience.

Vectran Breaker layer.
The Vectran Breaker layer is an anti-puncture protective layer under the tread. This strip prevents sharp stones, twigs and glass splinters from passing through the tyre and reaching the inner tube. With this puncture protection strip you can enjoy increased puncture protection.

• Weight: 215 grams (25 mm tyre width)
• 330tpi, 3-layer build
