Why We Like The Continental Grand Prix 5000 Tire

The all-new Grand Prix 5000 Tire from Continental is a worthy successor to its Grand Prix 4000 S II, standing at the top of the Continental road clincher range. The Black Chili compound uses the latest polymers and synthetic rubbers along with a proven natural rubber for a high-performance blend that's truly race-worthy. It gives the tire greater ability to conform to imperfections in the road surface for excellent grip in demanding situations, which we appreciate for high-speed cornering.


  • 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 strayed and came back

I've put it through the wringer

Yes I cheated on my Contis. I'd been a Conti fan for years but got tired of the tight fit. I moved to two different brands and both had failures so I'm back. The trick to getting Conti's on and off is to use Park Tool TL-6.3 tire levers and wear gloves. They are longer so you have more leverage and the gloves will give you more power without feeling like you're going to hurt your hands. Its still not easy but definitely alot easier and doable as long as you follow general tire mounting procedures. If you're on the road you're likely to already have gloves on anyway. The GP4000's and now GP5000's are known for low rolling resistance and for me, they've been bulletproof on the road. I also like the way they look. I recently moved from the 25's to the 28's and believe they are a bit easier to mount.

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

The pairs of 25's I ran for over 10 yrs did very well: fast, ran at 90psi, not that comfortable, good durablity, when worn out did flat more, cuts did happen from glass, nails etc on the side of the road, but main problem was getting the last 6" over the rim, so very depressing when having a flat, especially trying to get under the tire bead to pry the tire off then having to use a tire bead jack getting it back on- often resulting in pinching the new tube!! Enter the 28. It's just as fast, 50% more comfortable. I'm 200lbs and run at 85psi. The 28 is 75% easier to get the tire on, 50% easier in getting the bead out to remove the tube, then again 75% easier getting the tire back on usually just by hand so eliminating the chances of pinching!! I have had the same results on getting it on my Astral aluminum and Astral carbon rim. I've had them over 2,000 miles and the first week got a pinch flat from something near the side of a city street, but no problems since on city or rural roads.

Sidewall blowout

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 5"

Like a few other reviewers have mentioned, these tires have problems. I too had a sidewall blowout on a smooth road, and I just put them on a few weeks ago. On the other tire I had a couple pinch flats since it was so difficult to mount. I won't be buying these again.

Have not had better- but hard to mount

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

good puncture resistance, grip and excellent rolling resistance. They can be very hard to fit on some wheels. Took forever to get on a set of HEDS. If either bead is not pinched together in the center of the rim all the way around the wheel, you won't get them on. other wheels I have are nowhere as hard. Be careful if your frame's tire clearance not generous. With modern wide rims these will be a couple mm wider than their size.

Ideal tire

I've put it through the wringer

Tire has ideal combination of grip with minimal rolling resistance. The tires is very tough but light and durable

Was a good tire...

Ran the 4000 series for years with no issues and great ride. Switched to the 5000 series and had similar results until the last few purchases. I must have gotten a bad batch because the side walls split allowing the tube to pinch through. The last tire was only on my trainer for a couple hundred miles before experiencing the same failure. You can actually see the fibers pulling apart. I really liked these tires and only experienced one flat over several thousand miles. But after experiencing 3 sidewall blowouts in a row due to tire failure, I will be switching brands.

Nothing but good things to say

I've put it through the wringer

I've had zero problems with these tires and I've had them on the bike for about 18 months. Not sure of the mileage because I have a lot of Zwift thrown in, but they likely have around 5-6,000 miles on them. I haven't had any flats with these. However, one of my valve stems broke (my fault), so I did have the chance to change the tube once. I discovered it right as our club was rolling out for a ride, and changing the tube was so quick that I was able to catch the pack. I do run the 28's, so maybe that's why I've had a better experience than other reviewers.

Better than 4000's but they run narrow.

I've put it through the wringer

I've been riding Continental 4000's for many years. I have some miles on the new ones and they are an improvement over the 4000 S II's. The main improvement I have noticed is they are slightly less prone to getting small cuts from glass shards. The main caveat to be aware of is they are definitely narrower than the 4000's. I always used 25's before so I ordered the 5000's in the same size. As soon as I installed one I could see it was narrower. I then got some in the 28 size and mounted those. The 28's in the 5000's are the same width as the old 4000's in a 25. Still overall a great tire as far as wear, grip and puncture resistance. They will be slightly tight to install when new but after you ride them for a bit they loosen up a bit.

Impossible to install

I've used it several times

They might be great once you figure out how to get them on your wheel but they are so tight it is almost impossible with two people trying to get them on. Good luck if you are riding alone and you flat, you will be stuck.

Good tire, hard to install

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
6' 2"

Once they are on, they are a great tire. The fit is very tight, but not impossible to get on. I loved the 4000 Conti's and these are a worthy successor.
