Continental has ceased the production of the popular all-round tyre Grand Prix 4000 S II, even though it is still a reference among all road bike tyres available on the market. Instead, the rubber specialists from Germany decided to immediately launch a successor model with the Continental Grand Prix 5000 folding tyre, which is bound to be a little better in every respect.

Simply better

Rolling resistance, puncture resistance, comfort, weight... compared to the previous model, the Continental Grand Prix 5000 offers the next step of evolution in all areas. Continental’s own test laboratory reports the tyre offers approx. 12% less rolling resistance, 20% more puncture resistance and much more comfort thanks to the improved Active Comfort Technology that is integrated into the 3-layer casing structure. This is where it absorbs most of the vibration directly at source and thus improves the ride feel. On top of all this, Continental has reduced the weight of the Grand Prix 5000 by about 10 grams compared to the 4000 S II (at a width of 25 mm).

Whether for training or competition, rain or sunshine, cold or heat – the Continental Grand Prix 5000 is the best all-round tyre ever

High grip and low rolling resistance are mutually exclusive. The combination of both always requires a compromise. For the development of the Grand Prix 5000, Continental has improved the formula of the proven Black Chili Compound to achieve a perfect balance between stiffness and stability to get a tyre with optimized rolling resistance that is yet soft enough to offer maximum traction.
To increase grip in fast-taken corners, Continental has given the Grand Prix 5000 a Laser Grip shoulder tread. This micro tread structure is engraved on the rubber surface with a laser for high forgiveness and control when cornering.
Everybody wants it... Maximum puncture resistance. However, nobody wants additional weight. The Vectran™ Breaker puncture protection insert of the Continental Grand Prix 5000 is inspired by enormously tear-resistant spider silk and made of a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre consisting of liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). The resistant, densely woven fibre creates an enormously resistant protective layer against punctures and cuts, without adding a lot of extra weight.
The Active Comfort technology is embedded in the 3-layer structure of the casing to absorb vibrations and shocks directly where they occur. At the contact point of the tyre with the road. This increases your comfort “actively” and smoothens your ride.
