Description

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!

Tough, Heavy and Plush

These are excellent, strong and roll well enough. They dont roll *that* well and are noticebly heavy. The bead is HUGE and can be tough to get on the rim, but if you have done enough tyres they are OK. They are not as plush feeling as say a Hutchinson Sector 28 but overall very good.

Pros

  • Good grip
  • Nice feel
  • Tough

Cons

  • Bit of drag
  • Hard to fit
  • Heavy

Great Tyre

Challenging to fit but once on the rim it's top class. Time will tell on the punctures with TL set-up but happy so far.

Pros

  • Hopefully less punctures
  • Lower pressures
  • Nice ride

Cons

  • Challenging to fit

Great tyre and great service

This is the second set of GP5000tl I have had. First set lasted 5,000km without one issue. Found a few thorns and cuts when I took them off and the rest was worn down to the vet ran later in a few small parts. Really impressed and Mantel offer great service with a great product at a great price.

Pros

  • Confidence inspiring in corners
  • Durable
  • Puncture resistance
  • Run fast

Manufacturer specifications

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.

• Available in 23, 25, 28 and 32 mm for 700C
