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.

  • Double layer Vectran with DuraSkin sidewalls
  • 330TPI inflatable to 120 PSI, (28mm to 115 PSI)

good tire

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used mavic, schwalbe, michelin, several other brands of tires before and usually upgrading to Continental tires. I am very please with the performance of this particular Continental brand. Compared to gator skin, this one has better grip at cornering and descending. I have put less than 300 miles so far and it feels brand new everytime I ride. I would recommend these tires. Good price as well.

Great performance tire for bad roads

    Listen, all the top cycling tire companies (Vittoria, Continental, Michelin, Schwalbe, and a few others) make great top-of-line race tires. But all those tires have very little flat protection (if any). They are meant for timed applications on clean, smooth roads.

    What about the roads most of us actually ride on most of the time??

    What if you want a great, fast, training road tire with some real flat protection?

    These are the best I've found. The German-engineered (and made) Continental Grand Prix 4-Season.

    Conti GP 4S tires feature *two* layers of Vectran tread protection, wraparound DuraSkin sidewall protection, plus the latest German rubber compounding for optimum wet and cold weather performance. And they weigh only 241g for size 25, and 280g for size 28. That's light for a performance tire with double tread protection.

    These GP 4S tires are fast, ride beautifully (smooth & supple), grip really well, and have excellent puncture protection.

    Coming from Vittorias that excel at smooth & supple (but cut and flat easier), I am really impressed by these Continentals!

    Continental makes OEM tires for Porsche. The sidewalls are proudly stamped, "Handmade in Germany." These tires reek of high quality.

    Narrow but a nice ride!

      I just switched onto these for my winter tires, replacing a pair of fast but worn Vittoria Corsa Evo CX II's. The Vittoria's were 25mm but measured 26mm on my American Classic Victory 30 wheels. I opted for the 28mm Continentals, knowing that they measure a little narrow, but they were even narrower than expected at 25mm!

      For tubes I got some of the Continental Race 28 wide tubes which are advertised for 25-32mm tires. The Contis were very difficult to get over the rim, and I pinched my rear tube a bit when getting it on, only to discover the tube was flat the next morning. I happened to have a regular Continental Race 28 for 20-25mm tires, which fit much better, and wasn't a risk for a pinch because of the narrower profile when putting back on. I'll also switch out my front for a narrower tube soon.

      While I'm a little bummed that my winter tires are narrower than my summer tires, I really like the confidence in the corners on both wet and dry roads. I've been testing different inflation psi, and haven't got it dialed in exactly yet, but they are comfortable and still fast at 95-100 psi. Closer to max inflation, they were a little rougher riding. Also, I have noticed a little more rolling resistance and slightly slower spin-up than my last tires, but I was expecting this as a trade off of the grippier cold-handling compound and heavier weight.

      All in all, a fine shoulder and winter season tire, and I definitely feel safer in the rain in these which counts for a lot on those dark winter commutes. Next summer, I'll get some racier tires again, but these will last me fine until then.

      Great long wearing tires!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had issues with sidewall cuts/tears on the GP 4000S tires and finally got fed up with going through a tube a week. I bought the GP tires and have over 900 miles on them without any issues. None. It may be marketing but yes, these tires are not ready to roll up to the start line at your local crit, but I have no issues cornering down mountain descents at high speed, they grip well and are durable. Not a single issue despite lots of roadside debris, etc.
      If you want a long wearing, highly puncture resistant tires from a great tire company, throw a pair in your cart now.

      NO FLATS!!

        Before I bought these tires I had switched to another brand and had about 8 flats in 3 months costing me quit a bit of money. I purchased the Continentals a little over month ago and I haven't had one flate. Will definitely buy again.

        best for all conditions training

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've been using these tires all around the San Francisco Bay Area. I typically ride through wet, dry, cold, hot conditions on smooth, bumpy, rocky, trails all in a single ride. These tires hold up perfect for it all. The tread feels grippy in the corners and on wet surfaces. I bought an extra set while they were on sale so I can continue using them as long as possible.

        Perfect for Everyone

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I am not a veteran road biker and so have tried to get equipment that will last long and still perform well without breaking the bank. I think these are great value, have never had any problems with them, no flats thus far so thumbs up for sure

        Great Tires

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Smooth and no punctures. Could not be happier.

        Solid all-rounder

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I bought these tires in a 25mm... I've got pretty wide rims so they actually measure out to just under 28mm. Simply pu, I love them! I use them from the last race of the season(sept) through the winter. Living in Colorado we get a lot of sand and nastiness on the roads during the winter and so far I've only had one flat due to a staple. I pair them with qtube's road tube(another solid buy from backcountry). Rolls much better than the gators skins and is more durable than the gp4000s which I usually race on. I like that they are still sticky enough in the corners but with added durability for training. I've put 2500 miles on the pair I have now and they probably have at least another 2500 miles left in them.

        Thanks for the review Sterling! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These are my go to tires when the roads are covered in salt and cinders during the winter. Over thousands of miles ridden (on several sets) I have had one flat due to a sharp piece of glass. The only other bad occurrence was losing the rubber down to the puncture belt after hard braking on an older tire. These tires are just as puncture resistant as Gatorskins, but they don't last quite as long. They have great grip in the wet. They have lower rolling resistance than Gatorskins, but are still nowhere near summer race tires. When the going gets extra tough I recommend these.

        Good wear; tough tire

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I get months (about 700 miles each month) on these tires. Probably 3 or 4 months. When I get a flat, it's usually because I need to replace the tires. I ride on chip seal in Texas.

        Great Winter Tries

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Excellent tires. Grabs and Hugs the road very well in wet conditions.
        Thank you Competitive Cyclist for all the help and advice selecting a great winter tire.

        I ride these in 28mmR-25mmF for a great balance of comfort with lower pressure and excellent traction. These are clearly more comfortable "cushy" than my previous 4000S2 25mm. These 4 Season tires roll over road imperfections more softly than the S2s at equal pressure and the double Vectran puncture protection layers give me peace of mind. These are my new "Cadillac" tires for my CAAD 10.

        Gabe I agree I also have these tires mounted on my CAAD 10. =)

        Holding Up Well to New England Fall Road

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These are really nice stable tires that have seen some tough roads as we head toward Winter in New England. Take a licking and just keep sticking to the road. Will be getting a set for my B Bike.
        Very stable ride on on 35/50 Carbon Wheel set.

        Great all season tire!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I would recommend this tire for those who are commuters or like a road tire that has grip and low puncture issues. Tire rides great. Just make sure you pump up the tire each ride!

        Best tire out there

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've tried a lot of tires for commuting and training and these have provided the best flat resistance, longevity, and versatility of the bunch.

        Hell yeah, I completely agree. These tires are bad-ass! I rode through some extremely gravelly post-storm-of-the-century streets between epic El Nino storms here in So-Cal with out a worry. After closed-street muddy/gravelly crossings due to flooded out/washed-out roads where vehicle drivers were re-routed around for miles, I trooped on through and reached my destinations in bee-line fashion.
        These are GREAT foul weather tires. Among the BEST!

        contential 4 season tires

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
