Description

Description

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, 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.

Technology

Black Chili Compound
Continental's designers 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 treated the edges of the Grand Prix 5000 with a laser. The laser profile has optimal adherence to the road for better grip during turns. You can feel the difference at high speed and wet conditions!

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

Vectran Breaker-layer
The Vectran Breaker-layer is an anti-puncture protection layer under the tread. This strip prevents sharp stones, twigs and shards of glass from entering your casing and reaching the tube. This anti-puncture strip provides you with great protection against punctures.

5 / 5

Great tyre, good price

- Sohail 21 July 2021

Grippy and good ride feel (coming from Conti GP 4 Season)

5 / 5

One of the best tyres out there

- Stephen 28 May 2021

Nice balance between low rolling resistance and grip in most conditions. Too early to judge puncture protection. The gum wall finish looks good on my carbon wheels. The tyres were easy to fit. They have come up a little narrower than some other brands I have used on these wheels

Pros & Cons

Easy to fit
Good rolling resistance
Ski wall looks good on my bike
Come up a little narrower than others I have used

5 / 5

great experience with Mantel

- Ciaran 25 May 2021

4 / 5

Probably the smoothest rolling tyre there is

- John 7 April 2021

Have Gp5000 on 4 bikes

Pros & Cons

Look well
Rolling is very smooth
Not a well wearing as Gp4000

5 / 5

always great tyres - now looking better with new sidewall colour

- Mark 6 April 2021

Probably the best tyre for general sporting use (Interestingly these 25C sized up exactly the same as my old GP5000s that were labelled 23C: both measured 25mm on the same rims!)

Pros & Cons

grip
light
looks
puncture resistance
