Description

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)

Really, Grand Prix virtuosity?
Dear friends, and marginals,
I'm desperate, and will also be requiring your gear-headedness:
Background: Being a curious fellow, I've a nominally used, circa 90s, curious conveyance - Softride PowerWing 700 - still sporting, in Francophilia when not francophobia, her Mavic CXP14 rims. Tires, one hope have seen better days - my local bike shop informs they are too brittle to rotate safely, without the writing of an additional Insurance rider, & no interest there. So I'm left to wonder, unfulfilled, exactly how long can an Armadillo Technology, Turbo 700 × 26c survive in captivity?
As you may note from my shopping cart, you peeping Tom you, I'm considering Conti Grand Prix 4 Seasons - for reasons I'd rather keep to myself - and wonder if you have the expertease to know if said rims can embrace 700 × 28c - In that regard, when asked "How wide can I go?", my bike shop professionals unequivocally advised "28, maybe."
Fyi: As you may know, some www chattel chatterers chatter of Conti tight fits; Granted, they may be Conti haters, themselves fit to be tied(?).
Also, I'm very pro-tube, and would favor knowing if you've a feeling for a good match there, or, in the alternative, if you figure they're all pretty much the same.
Do take care of yourselves - what the Hey? Anxiously awaiting your responsiveness, also,
Your humble savant,
Swan Viaduct

Dear Gastrocnemius of Geniuses,
Background: My, oh my soon to be crisis of faithful steed, Skalliwag, is well past time for the cobbler, and a good shoeing. For the present, she's still riding on all twos due to be reined in, since, to say, her twos tread lightly would be to overstate her footing the bill. She's saddled with Mavic CXP14 rims (circa late 90s; Frankly, Skalli's Francophylic when not Francophobic, with tires, soon to be creative lawn ornaments, called "Turbo 700 × 26c Armadillo Technology - which I expect has a bloodline relationship to the sub-species Specialized Armadillo, but could not, of good conscience, shtumpate to that, as biological fact, if called to give witness.
I inquired of my local bike shop, whom I dearly love, I love them to pieces, especially when I need parts, "How wide a tire can my rims embrace (being more comfort zoned-in girth of body, than with spirited quickness of mind), to which I was informed, unequivocally, "28s, maybe". So, what say you?:
1.) Might you be selling me a set of those Conti Grand Prix 4-Season, 28c, I've read so favorably much about, for near immediate future purposes, secure in the knowledge that it will be as good for me as it was for you? If not, knowing full-well we gallop caliperless, 26s would be the inside lane dark horse safer bet. Or, if so,
2.) What tubes would you favor as the affordable perfect in every way match with the Conti Grand Prix 4 Seasons?
Skalliwag and I await your considered response on feedbagged baited breath.
Respectfully,
Swan

I use the Conti Race Light tubes with mine. Happy with tube and tire alike.

Mistakenly wrote "Conti Race Light" tubes, but can't see how to delete or edit. I use the Conti Tour 28 Slim.

Unanswered Question

Does anyone know the actual width of the 32mm tire when mountain on a standard road wheel. I can likely clear something that measures up to about 33mm, but if these run extra large like some of the other contis it's not gonna fly.

Love these!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ive had these on my bike for a frw months now and I love them! Havent had a flat with on yet!

Not a race tire!

    Bought a gravel bike and ended up using it more on asphalt than gravel, go figure. So I searched for a good road tire that wouldn't seriously compromise comfort, but still be fast. It's not as fast of a tire as I thought a smooth high pressure tire would be. Don't get me wrong, I like the tire. The rubber is softer that I thought, 4 season, (duh right?). Still learning about these things.
    One other important note; I bought a 700×32, it measures 36. Runs bigger than advertised in this case anyway. It is comfortable and I'm not racing, however, I do pay attention to my time and averages. I would recommend this tire, so far, less than 500 miles.

    No Gator But No Gator For winter...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I do love this tire. I run it in the 32mm for late season commuting. I love my Gator Skins more, but these do better in the cold wet weather here in SLC UT. I commute on average about 50 miles a week in these. Plus your grocery and bar hoping runs, yes, even in winter. Gator Skins are a more durable tire, but these do the best attraction in freezing and wet weather. So i run Gators on my road bike, and these on my commuter in winter.

    If you only had one tire...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have ridden these tires (28s) for the past 5 years on my road bike in just about any "reasonable" condition, including distance rides, gran fondos, dirt trails, even gravel grinders and "Roubaix". Never, NEVER had one flat or fail. I am a great fan/convert to tubeless, but on my upcoming remote ride to Wyoming, what will I take? Yep, 4 season 28's.

    Not a gatorskin for sure

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I posted a review a while back and somehow I accidentally deleted it. But the gist of it was: these are not good commuter tires as some would like you to think. I had 3 flats in ~ 400 miles before having a devastating blowout in the tread/sidewall 20 miles from home. I rode on the same roads as I use my gatorskins and other tires. gators
    are without the same issues. I know people probably think I am doing something wrong or a "heavy" rider etc. I am average build and weigh 170lbs. I am an experienced rider with road, mountain and commuter bikes. I am not a conti hater. these tires just aren't the answer for commuting unless you want to change lots of flats in the cold, dark rain or snow.

    I'm conflicted.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The good: light and grippy, even in the wet and in gravel. Always felt secure even on really questionable surfaces. A fast ridding tire as well. They ride quite a bit faster than Gatorskins and have surer grip and handling.
    The Bad: Just didn't last very long before the sidewall blew out. Maybe it's just bad luck, but I didn't hit any major potholes or drag them around sideways. Did ride some rougher roads than I wanted to, but that's the same for any tire. They don't last the way Gatorskins do.

    In the end, I'm going back to Michelins for my fast tires and sticking to Gatorskins for training rides.

    Awesome winter tires

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been running these in the 28 mm configuration through the winter out here in Utah and I've been extremely happy. They offer plenty of grip and protection. Will buy again!

    Ever hear of RAAM?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Since 2004 thru current, I used these tires for all of the Ultra-Endurance races: Furnace Creek 508, ADK540, Alaska Fireweed 400, and RAAM Solo without a single blowout. While going through one of the reservations in the Midwest the road had about a mile of broken glass, still no problem!!

    Want a True tire to believe in? This is it "4 Season"

    Ever hear of RAAM?

    Happy so far

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've had these on my road bike for a while now. They hold up really well to my standards. I haven't been out in the rain with them, but have done a few rides where the roads were wet. They gripped a lot better than I expected. Being a mountain biker mainly, I had reservations about skinny tires and their ability to help keep me upright. I was pleasantly surprised. They also offer a good amount of resistance to punctures, I'm a big guy and ride out towards Antelope Island regularly. With all of the construction and debris on the roads, that's something I appreciate. I have had tires that were softer riding, but I would rather be riding, than be stuck on the side of the road fixing flats. Personal preference, at least.
    Overall, I'd rate these as very good tires, and would buy them again.

    Amazing tires

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    They may be a little heavier than some other tires, but I rarely get flats. They are durable and don't seem any less nimble than top end race tires I have run. I regularly pick our glass out of the tires, but see a flat maybe once a year. The handle great too.

    Great grip tires

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Use these tires all year round. I live in the Northeast and deal with rain, snow, ice, gravel and dirt. These tires have great traction and handle well in the conditions. I also use this tire a lot on a trainer and the tires have not shown any extra wear.

    All around tire that can handle it all

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    After many miles on too many tires to name, this tire takes the cake. It may be a bit on the expensive side but to me it is the most complete tire. It handles long training miles on beat up chip seal roads along with racing use. Puncture protection like a gatorskin but the comfort, grip, weight, and low rolling resistance like a GP 4000s2.

    Great in variable conditions

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Got these for my husband, who says: I got these tires after the set of Mavics I had on my bike were shredded by the roads around Park City. The 4 Seasons are perfect for the variable conditions I ride in (unsealed roads, gravel trails, general rocks/gravel/whatever leftover from winter) and I’ve had zero cuts, tears or punctures over the course of about 1000 miles. They’re not as supple or comfy as something like a Vittoria Corsa but you know that going in with these tires and while you give up a little bit of comfort, you get durability and grip in pretty much all conditions you can throw at a road bike. Definitely a great tire.

    Excellent tires

      Lighter than expected yet thick and with a soft ride. Excellent quality. Will buy again.

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

      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.
