After 14 years of service, Continental have decided the classic Grand Prix 4000 was in need of an update. Enter the all-new Continental Grand Prix 5000. Lighter, faster with improved comfort and puncture protection, the Grand Prix 5000 resets the benchmark.

  • Re-designed BlackChili Compound makes for a tyre that is 10g lighter and has 12% better rolling resistance
  • Vectran Protection improves puncture protection by 20% over the GP 4000 
  • Active Comfort technology provides a smoother, more comfortable ride
  • Lazer Grip tread pattern improves corning grip and control
  • Incredibly light with weights starting from just 205g!
  • Folding bead

The Grand Prix 5000 has been designed from the outset to improve on the most important areas of tyre design; grip, rolling resistance, speed and comfort. Continental re-designed their BlackChili compound to improve grip, rolling resistance and durability. The result is a tyre that has 12% better rolling resistance compared to the already fast GP 4000 and is also 10g lighter. Further improving grip levels and control is the new Lazer Grip tread pattern that improves corning grip and control in all conditions, giving the rider a tyre that they can have the confidence in to push to the limit. 

While the Grand Prix 5000 thrives in a racing environment, Continental has not forgotten about everyday usability. With an improved Vectran puncture protection layer, the Grand Prix 5000 has 20% better puncture resistance than the GP 4000. Most of us love to log big miles and thanks to the Active Comfort technology in the Grand Prix 5000, this is a tyre that won't rattle your fillings loose out on the open road. This is a tyre that is happy being along rough roads all day long while proving excellent comfort. Fast, tough and reliable, the Continental Grand Prix 5000 takes everything that make the GP 4000 great and turns it up a notch. Road cycling just got a new benchmark tyre by which all others are judged.

Great product being using them for a number of years
Best tyre on the market
Brilliant tyre, had plenty in the past
Much needed replacement tyres.
Continental tyres are always good but a fair price at Tweeks too.
Perfect upgrade
Probably the best all round road tyre
Very durable tyres that yield a smooth ride. Easy to fit.
not cheap but a good piece of kit. Very tight to get on .
Excellent tyre - not too hard to fit - roll nicely - good grip even in the wet today - hopefully puncture resistant - my old tyres were cutting up constantly but so far no sign on these
