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.

As good as everyone tells me.

Quality tyres. Bought due to strong recommendations from others. I’ve had two poor Conti 4S tyres - lasted less than four months each - so I was reluctant. They seem so flimsy and light when compared to other tyres, yet they are fast and roll really well. Very impressed so far!

Pros

  • Ride feels great.
  • Look good

Top all round performance tyre

The ride and handling on the GP5000 genuinely surpasses the previous GP4000! Despite my initial scepticism I have to admit this tyre has progressed.

Excellent Tyre THIS is the one to have

I got these tyre and waw they are defiantly quicker, better rolling resistance and the grip is out of this world. Just remember they will be tight (TOP TIP) get some Park Tool TL-4.2 Tyre Lever Carded Tool and they just slip on a treat. I bought them for my new campagnolo scirocco and they have transformed my giant bike to an other level. The price of mantel is the best on the internet £69 for 2 tyres and postage.in the uk they are £40-£60 each plus postage. well done mantel i will be buying a lot more off you.

Pros

  • price
  • grip
  • faster ride
  • best tyre so far
  • And again price

Cons

  • little hard to fit BUT they do go on

Additional information

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.

Extra specifications:
• Available in 23, 25, 28 and 32 mm for 700C
• Weight: 215 grams (25 mm tyre width)
• 330tpi, 3-layer build
• 10 grams lighter than the Grand Prix 4000S II
