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!

Technology

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.

5 / 5

Fast and grippy

- Anthony 13 July 2021

Very happy, long term 4000 user so happy to go with this. Friends had good experience with wear so far, I've put on 1000km and fine so far

Pros & Cons

Easy tubeless set up
Grip
Speed
Slightly awkward to fit on rim

5 / 5

A fast rolling tubeless tyre that has proven very reliable for me on the awful roads of South Wales

- Andrew 7 July 2021

Purchased a new pair of these tubeless tyres. Previous pair went around 3500 miles & never failed to get me home through punctures. Sealant works well in combination with these tyres. The new tyres were a bit tight fitting on my new Campagnolo Bora wheels but I managed to get them in with a little persuasion using a lever. Tyres popped into position using basic track pump first time. Sealant has worked with very little pressure loss. These tyres roll extremely fast in the tubeless set up, far quicker than any tubed versions that I have ever used. Decent mileage before requirement to change out through wear indicators

Pros & Cons

Decent puncture resistance & durable
Sealed first time
Very fast rolling tyres
Expensive
Quite tight fitting

4 / 5

High volume road tubeless tyres that do what they are supposed to do

- John-Paul 29 May 2021

Very easy to fit by hand (no levers or tyre fitting liquid) on modern rims ie 21mm internal width like Hed Belgium Plus or NoTubes Avion's. Doesn't work well with narrower tubeless ready rims such as Stan's Alpha 400's - the enlarged/reinforced bead takes up too much space in the inside of the rim to allow the tyre to be fitted cleanly. The 5000 TL sits along side the venerable GP 4 Seasons if you want to make the jump to tubeless, especially on heavily textured road surfaces and on un-made back roads here in the UK.

Pros & Cons

Air tight without sealant
Available in larger sizes ie 32c
Easy to fit by hand on wide rims >21mm internal
Super grippy rubber compound
Doesn't suit older/narrow tubeless road rims
Not as light as Schwalbe Pro One tyre.
Relatively expensive

5 / 5

Competitive tyre at a competitive price

- Graeme 21 September 2021

Makes for a good ride

Pros & Cons

Easy installation
Grippy
Seating Inflation without sealant
We shall see

5 / 5

Super smooth and fast, ace

- Martin 31 August 2021

Super happy with the GP5000, an even better upgrade as used GP4000 on previous bike which were good. Going tubeless as well made these even better, they ride so smooth, feel confident and grippy but only had dry rides so far. Fitting was a little tighter than normal TIRE, but sealed up first try, cool. I bought 32c and fitting to wider RIMS measured 32mm. Playing with tyre pressures 60psi rear & 55psi front was best and comfortable on road and still fast. I'm now gaining just over 1mph on my average ride speed. That might be more the new bike but sure helped by the GP5000 over the original Giant brand fitted which felt a bit hard

Pros & Cons

Fit and seal well, easy
Love the soft sound the make rolling
Roll so well
Super smooth
A bit more expensive but worth it
A bit tight to fit
