Description

Grand Prix 5000 Tire

The all-new Grand Prix 5000 Tire from Continental is a worthy successor to its Grand Prix 4000 S II, a tire that stood atop its road clincher tire range for a dozen or so years and a favorite among cyclists worldwide. What made the GP4000 so universally loved was that it was truly a competition-worthy tire in terms of weight, grip, and rolling resistance, but unlike typical racing rubber, the tire was actually durable enough to fend off debris so you could train on it daily, while also lasting quite a while so you could rack up some miles before the threads began to show.

We'll start with its rubber compound as it continues to use Black Chili balance. The rubber compound is critical because it defines the tire's grip, rolling resistance, and longevity. Typically, you can't alter one without it affecting the other which is exactly where Black Chili shines. Using the latest knowledge of polymers and raw material research, Conti uses special synthetic rubbers along with proven natural rubber, creating a high-performance mixture. To it, it adds super-tiny carbon black particles, optimized in shape and surface properties.

The complex compound technology is so exclusive that Conti only manufactures tires using Black Chili compound in its Korbach, Germany plant. The tiny size of Black Chili particles allows them to mold to variable road surfaces more readily. It gives the tire greater ability to conform to imperfections in the road surface for excellent grip in demanding situations, such as high-speed cornering, while also reducing rolling resistance. Since the Black Chili particles are so small, more particles fit into the contact patch of the tire, reducing wear and increasing longevity.

  • A clincher racing tire that you can train on
  • Black Chili compound reduces rolling resistance, increases grip
  • Active Comfort Technology lessens vibrations for a smoother ride
  • Vectran breaker technology reduces puncture risk
  • Lazer Grip etching improves cornering traction
  • Conti's GP5000 ushers in a new era of road clincher tire dominance

I’ve had these tires for 4 months. probably putting on 150 miles a week as my main training set. Usually on clean dry good roads. Sadly I noticed the tire tread falling off. This is the first set of 5000s i’ve had. I’ve always loved the 4000 series. I might go back to them.

Wow, I've not seen that. I've been running these since they came out with them and have not had that experience. I average around 250k/wk and typically get at about 3,000 km out of a set. The roads I ride are a mix of decent, chip seal, and rough back roads, lot's of climbing and high speed descents. I've had small cuts, which are to be expected, but noting like what you are showing. I'm ~195# and generally pretty hard on tires.

Dude looks terrible but that was a fluke... Ive been running these tires since inception and loooove them. No issues. I’d run a warranty claim on that and see what happens. Stay Motivated

I’ve ridden just over 500 miles in these, including a 200 miler from Seattle to Portland. Very smooth and grippy tire, but they are prone to having little tidbits lodged in the tire, especially riding in the city. Ive had 1 flat so far. Would recommend

I have ridden just over 3500 miles on these GP5000's and have no complaints. They are light, fast rolling tires with a sticky feel. They mounted quite easily and have been low maintenance since install. I ride mostly on paved roads but often on rough surfaces, chip-seal, and dodgy shoulders sprinkled with debris. I have had NO FLATS with these tires. NONE! I'm probably just lucky but they have proven to be very durable. The rear tire has begun to square off, but that is to be expected. NOTE: Continental sizing has changed with the GP5000. I previously ran GP4000s in 28c width, which measured 31.5mm wide when set to pressure. The new GP5000 tires in 28c measure an actual 28mm wide when set to pressure. 700x28c were 237grams on my PT scale.

These tires are my first experience with Continentals. So far I am quite impressed and delighted with my purchase. With only about 150 miles on the tires, I am most impressed with the cornering and the the low roll resistance. Maybe I stuck with Hutchinsons too long but they always seemed fine. Relative to the Hutchinson Fusions I replaced, I feel like, I'm riding with a 5 MPH tailwind. Those little nano-fuzzies that wrap down the sidewall seem to do amazing things. Maybe I'm not cornering better but I sure feel more confident pushing the speed on corners. Some reviews mentioned they struggled with mounting. Not my experience. One tire went on with ease the other took a little more oomph but not a real issue. Can't address puncture resistance at this point but so far so good

To quote the description: A clincher racing tire that you can train on. This statement is patently false. The tire rides well (once you can get the buggers on), dont get me wrong. But the 5000 bears no resemblance to the 4000 when it comes to durability. I was a loyal, loyal conti rider. But I’ve had 4 of these tires give out with cut flats and the tread coming down to threads, and for 3 of them I rode them for less than 3 weeks. If this happens once, bad luck. Twice, you’ve angered the tire gods. But three times, back to back...that is a bad tire. The fourth time this am is inspiration to write a 1 star review. Unless you expect training tires to be completely consumable, you should not ride these for training. Maybe for race day (whenever that happens again)...

I've always heard that one of the smartest and best enhancement to a bike is to get new tires. I now concur! I picked up 3-4 mph, depending on the road. Smooth, fast and grippy. It runs tight so fitting it into the rim will take a little bit of time and some sweat. Don't let the other reviews regarding the size scare you. It'll fit, just work with it.

I bought a 25mm 5000 series Conti to replace a Michelin Pro 4 on my front wheel. I was immediately surprised by how much "shorter" the Conti was than the Michelin. This was a big deal as I ride a 10 year old Fondriest DF2, which I love but was a bit sad that I had to go with the narrower tires popular back in the day, because the wider tires were too tall for the frame and fork. After riding on the new tire I was very surprised to find that it actually had a "silkier" ride as proclaimed in other reviews. I usually attribute such claims to the excitement of putting on new rubber or the difference between a new tire and an old used one. However, I can say emphatically that the difference was more than subtle, although I may be falling into the same trap I just described. In any case I ordered a 28 mm for my front wheel and moved the 25 mm to the rear (spacing is more confined than the front fork) and I am now enjoying the lovely road feel of the wider (but not Michelin tall) Conti tires. Now, there is a caveat to all this as the wheel width can have an effect on the "tallness" of the tire, I believe. So buyer beware, your wheel-set may be an issue. But for me, I get to keep a frame I love for awhile longer than I anticipated.

32mm Road Tires for the Win

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

As a recreational sport rider, my main focus on road rides is going far and exploring new roads. Im in no way someone who's concern is all about speed. That said, first impressions, I was shocked at how fast the 32mm felt on the road. Coming from 28mm, this wasn't a huge shift but the added comfort on inconsistent New England roads was very welcome. Im 133 lbs and ran these with pretty low pressures (55 front/60back), they still felt a touch stiff so I might try less pressure on my next ride. I've got less than 50mi on these but id def buy these again.

Sticky

Familiarity:

These tires are great, super tacky and roll well. Since they are very supple, they are heavily prone to getting nicks from small rocks/road debris if you ride in such areas. Overall flat protection is good.

>Rating: 4

much truer to size than GP4000

It will be another month before the roads clear for riding (so my 4 star grading doesn't mean much), but I can comment on the width of these. I went with the 700x25 clinchers, and mounted them on my DTSwiss ERC 1100 rims with 19mm internal diameter. Using a micrometer, the GP 5000s at 90 psi measured out to 25.8 mm width. This compares to the 700x25 GP4000s which measured out to 27.45mm on the same rims.

Good tires / not very supple

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I use these for their good durability and grip. I do find them strangely 'hard' and often think I've run over something or am having a flat due to this harshness.. I normally ride on tubulars (Vittoria and Veloflex) so I'm spoiled for ride quality and road feel. But these are also not even as supple as Vittoria clinchers .. Still I like the no-flats and long-life factors, so continue to use them on daily training where performance isn't really the main issue. If you're looking for finesse and a true race-day tire, and feeling connected to the road, go with Vittis or Velos.

I agree. My 5000’s were very flat prone. Went back to the Corsa G’s.

These are low rolling resistance tires with great grip and puncture resistance. And they last long for a lightweight racing tire ihave used these for a couple years with excellent experience.

I got this for a friend. He loves the Contis! He has tried other tires, but these are by far the most flat-resistant and longest lasting tires out there he says. The new 5000s provide a very, very good ride and should last for thousands of miles.

Bring back the 4000

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Fast tire, but otherwise a big step down from the 4000. Tire completely squared off after 500 miles. I used to get 3,000 miles out of the 4000’s. This has gone from a great all around road tire, to a race day only tire.

Thanks, I have heard that from a few people. I stocked up on the 4000s whenever they are on super sale. I have about a dozen in my garage.

Alan B. Don'y you worry about deterioration having so many hang in the garage?

I run these or Vittoria Corsa G's. They seem better made than the Vittoria's where I literally peeled off the tread from the tube the other day.
