Two of our favorite words: Grand Prix.

The Continental GP 4-Season Tire takes the overall grippiness and performance inherent to the G.P. 4000 and adds extra sidewall durability to increase the punture protection. DuraSkin is Continental's patented nylon mesh layer that significantly beefs up the sidewall for flat resistance without compromising a supple ride quality or adding significant weight.

Continental offers the GP 4-Season Tire in three sizes -- 700x23, 700x25, and 700x28mm. It has a Grey tread with Duraskin sidewalls.

2,500 miles and going strong

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

No flats, no issues. Nice feel. Simply can't go wrong.

Not sure

After 2 rides I hit unseen ninja stars from hell and ended ride #3 with a 3/4 inch gash in the side wall. Overall the tires had nice rolling resistance (comparable to my 25cc Hutchinson Intensive tubeless tires), handled well in the wet. I don't know what I hit but it devestated the tire. This is one reason I went to the 4S--I wanted a bomb-proof commuter--but now I'm thinking its less bomb-proof. I'd say they're good tires, but if for training I'd probably go back to Vittoria Rubino Pros for a non-tubeless clincher set up or stick with the Hutchinson Intesnives.

Great tires

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my second set on Contis GP, my favorite tire!!!

Tire rolled off rim twice - one accident

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Tire rolled off the rims on two different occasions - one downhill leading to a nasty fall. Not a tire I would take a chance with again.

Love Them

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a pair of 700x28 for my EA90-XD cross wheels, and love them. Supple ride, and haven't had any flats on the road with them (knock on wood). These are my go-to training tires now.

Does the 4seasons have the recommended...

Does the 4seasons have the recommended specific tire rotation similar to the Grand Prix 4000? I don't see the directional arrows.

Responded on

Yes, simply face the thumb print pattern forward in the direction of rotation of tire when installed!

Great winter tire

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Picked up this tire in 25 mm width for winter training. The County I live is does a terrible job picking up and sweeping the sand and gravel they out down during snap storms. So instead of dodging this material when it ends up on the shoulders, I picked up these durable tires so I can ride through it.

I experimented with the 25 mm width and confess I notice a difference in comfort and traction. I herniated a disc in my lower back 3 years ago and any advantage I can get in comfort without losing marks in looks (ie having to have some high rise stem of obnoxiously padded saddle) is great for me. I am going to use 25 mm tires when I buy my summer tires.

As always timely shipping and great service from Competitive Cyclist.

Fantastic training tire

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm not to worried about grams and saving weight, but what I am worried about is getting flats and the rubber compound on my tire holding up to being put through the wringer. If you want tires that kick ass and can stand up to the occasional romp down fire roads and grip flawlessly through corners, you can't go wrong with these guys. I've taken these slicks everywhere and haven't had a problem yet.

I have the 700 28's -- almost (98%) as fast as the 23s and much more comfort -- 85 psi insead of 100. 1 flat (a large rose thorn) in 5000 mi using 3 tires -- first rear rear wore out about 3000 miles. I think I can go at least another 1000 mi on my tires and then will only need a rear. I am 64 and have been riding for 50 + years so tried a lot of tires, these ( in 700 28) have been a good compromise between speed, comfort and durability. For reference I am 170 lbs.

Beast of a Tire

You cannot go wrong with the 4 season tire. If you will be riding in winter and in wet conditions these are awesome and will go forever 3,500-4,000 miles. If you never ride in the elements but ride lots and lots of miles then I would recommend getting the Continental Gator Hard Skins.

I live / ride in Vermont where many of the roads turn to hardpack dirt and sometimes gravel without warning.

Are these good tires for that?

Responded on

Better than most road tires. They have a tread that works well in wet conditions. As long as it is not a very long distance they should work well.

Bad tire

After only about 1K miles the top rubber layer begin to peel off, showing the inner layer. On about 2K miles the damage appears on the inner surface causing the tube to explode.

Responded on

Yes, I have been using these tires for years, and am very abusive to my tires. These have become my favorite go-fast training tire for all around use. As they are a racing tire they will wear out far faster than the typical garden hose/hard compound tires, but there are not many tires that perform this well, wear this well, and are SERIOUSLY PUNCTURE RESISTANT. That being said, Continental is one of the worlds largest tire makers and sells a ton of these, so to be fair all tires can come defective from time to time. In my case I have gotten 6 of these with factory deformed casings, yet got warranty without issue and never looked back!

Rollin' rollin' rollin'

I slapped these in the 28's on my commuter bike to replace the 32C touring tires it came with. It made the bike noticeably more snappy and stiff. Which I like. They don'e roll over train tracks and the like quite as smoothly, but that's expected. I've got a couple hundred miles on them so far and no troubles. Good considering the construction zones, potholes, gutter junk, glass, and my fat butt all putting a strain on them. They stop fine and hold corners well. Not cheap so the better last a couple seasons at least. I might go back to the beefier tire for winter time when the roads are more unpredictable, but I think these will fit the bill the rest of the time.

October Update

I've ridden these tires nearly every day to work since May. Not a flat yet. No significant signs of wear. Great grip in the wet. Set the PSI and forget it. Upgrading to a full 5 stars.

Downright Indestructible

My brother uses these tires and he loves them. This is the Gods truth, these tires last so many miles he replaced his wheelset before replacing the tires. An amazing 330tpi avoids even the worst punctures. The sidewall is bulletproof and the rubber is long lasting. Great for year round use or training.
The kevlar beaded version weighs at:
220 grams - 23mm, 250 grams - 25mm, 270 grams - 28mm
The wire bead you see here is an additional 50grams a tire.

Responded on

Just to clarify, these tires are of the Grand Prix 4000 line or series and are not 330TPI, but rather 110TPI by three plies. Many people get confused as per the way to read the specs correctly. Their incredible puncture resistance actually comes from two plies of Vectran Material under the tread. Vectran is the best material in all modern tires so far to keep weight to minimum, give exceptionally low rolling resistance, and just plain awesome puncture resistance! These tires are truly fantastic!
