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.
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
