Description

The Continental GP 5000 TL for unparalleled performances.
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.

A perfect balance between rolling resistance and grip.
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.

Improved puncture protection and high comfort.
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!

Do not fit Mavic Kysirim Elite UST wheels

As a user and fan of Continental 4000 tyres I welcomed the new 5000 tubeless and bought a pair at a great price from Mantle. I and several experienced people, including those at my local bike shop, tried to fit them to on of my Mavic Kysirim Elite UST tubeless-ready wheels with no success. Even if it had fitted it would have been impossible to remove in an emergency if out riding. Continental advised me at Ride London registration that they would fit but now has confirmed that the tyre is not compatible with this wheel set. I am stuck with a new tyre that is unfit for purpose as it cannot be refunded because I tried to fit it. However, at least Mantel have kindly agreed to refund the unopened one. Many thanks, Mantel. Poor from Continental service though.

Pros

  • Super

Cons

  • Do Not Fit

Great tyre, great price, great delivery

I need some a couple of spare tyres for a 600 mile ride I was doing. I already use the same tyres, have for a year and think they and tubeless are great

Best tyre I've ever bought.

I've had tubeless tyres before but went back to tubed tyres after just getting too many punctures. Needing a new tyre I did a lot of investigating on the Internet regarding which tyres are best. The 5000TL had some good reviews so I hesitantly decided to try it. So far around 1,000 miles and no puncture. What has surprised me most, though, is how comfy the ride is now. The roads around here are rubbish, some I avoid simply because the surface is too rough. I'm not saying the tyre gets rid of all the shuddering but there is a definite improvementin the level of comfort. My only concern is the amount of effort it took to get the tyre on. It was not an easy task and if I do get a bad puncture whilst out that requires fitting a tube, then that will be a challenge. Overall I am really pleased with the tyre.

Pros

  • Remarkably smoother ride.
  • So far good puncture resistance.

Cons

  • Not the easiest tyre to fit.
  • Not the cheapest tyre around.

Black Chilli Compound
A secret recipe used for blending the best compound by Continental yet. The soul of the tyre, as they call it at Continental. A blend of basic raw materials which determine rolling resistance and grip. Tyres fitted with the Black Chilli Compound represent the best Continental has to offer: high levels of grip and low rolling resistance.

LazerGrip technology.
Continental has laser processed the edges of the Grand Prix 5000. The laser profile adapts itself optimally to the road surface. This gives you increased grip in the turns. At high speeds and wet conditions you really feel the difference!

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

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

Additional information

• Available in 23, 25, 28 and 32 mm for 700C
• 180tpi, 3-layer build
