Continental’s GP5000 brings improvements to the very successful and popular GP4000S II, a road bike tyre one of the best all-round cycling tyres ever made. Improving on such a widely respected tyre might have seemed like a daunting task. But the tyre-making giants stayed true to their reputation of continually innovating, and have produced a lighter, grippier, quicker tyre which also offers better puncture resistance than its predecessor. Note, this is an individual tyre, we also sell the GP5000 in a twin pack.

The Hot Compound

Continental are famed for their Black Chili rubber compound, which can be manipulated to suit the needs of a specific tyre. Compared to the Grand Prix 5000's predecessor, the tyre makers have been able lower weight by 10 grams in a 25 mm width, reduce rolling resistance by 12%, and increase puncture protection and durability by 20%. Cornering ability has also been improved thanks to the brand's proprietary Laser Grip Technology. This bit of tech creates a micro tread pattern over the shoulder of the tyre, meaning the GP5000 allows you to confidently nail any corner.

Faster, Smoother, More Comfort

Gone are the days in which it was thought that rattling around on a rock-hard 18 mm tyre was fast; it's now known that a more comfortable tyre can be a faster tyre. That's why Continental offers the GP5000 up to 32 mm in width. It's also constructed with Active Comfort Technology which helps to iron out those bumps and shocks you'll inevitably encounter on the roads. Lining the tyre is an ultra-lightweight and tear-resistant fibre called Vectran. With these fancy fibres the GP5000 offers incredible puncture protection, not only for race-oriented tyre but for a tyre regardless. So, whether you exclusively train on silky smooth tarmac in Majorca or race the cobbles of Belgium, you can be confident you have a tyre that will out-perform the competition whatever the condition.
