Grand Prix Premium BlackChili PolyX® Breaker Faltreifen

Classic: the Grand Prix tyre by Continental


The Grand Prix in not just any bicycle tyre, it is THE tyre that has stood for years as a symbol of quality and performance. The standards of this tyre are the basis for many developments in the road bike tyre segment. The new generation of Grand Prix is eager to set new standards. And so Continental began moving into the wide tyre trend. Wider tyres roll easier, have more mileage, offer more comfort and grip. The GP comes in a 24 mm width and is wide enough to have the constructive characteristics of a wider tyre, but it is narrow and light like road tyre.

Technology:


Premium
Continental Premium tyres are made or the highest performance. They use the latest technologies developed with the world's most successful athletes. The tyres are also handmade by experienced specialists in Korbach, Germany. Only the best materials is used for the highest quality and exceptional properties.

BlackChili Compound
The running properties of the rubber compound of a tyre are largely determined by three interacting factors: static friction [grip], rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma is that you improve one of these factors, and in turn, worsen at least one other factor. Black Chili Compound, the revolutionary compound from Continental, is based on the latest findings on polymer and other raw material research. For BlackChili, Continental redefined newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high performance tread compound. These rubbers are used with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimized in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tyre. BlackChili Compound reaches an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tyres have 26 % less rolling resistance, a 30 % higher friction value [grip] and a 5 % increase in mileage. Whether on the road or mountain bike, speed and grip advantages are very noticeable. The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tyres with BlackChili Compound can only be produced exclusively in Continental's German Korbach factory.

PolyX Breaker®
With the PolyX Breaker®, Conti is bringing their car expertise to the bicycle tyre sector. Polyester has been used successfully in car tyres for years and has proven itself over and over. The highly durable polyester thread is cross-stitched with a close mesh. As a result, very high fabric density is achieved, which not only makes the breaker more durable against foreign objects, but also particularly resistant to punctures. Rolling resistance is not negatively effected by this breaker.

TWI-Tread Wear Indicator
The wear rate and condition of any 'treaded' tyre like an MTB or touring model can be easily recognized by the obvious visual signs of wear to these tread lugs. Smooth or slick road tyres however do not offer any indication for their timely replacement. That is why Continental introduced wear indicators for smooth racing tyres back in 2004 on the Grand Prix 4000. The TWIs [Tread Wear Indicators] are on practically every Continental racing tyre these days. If the two small, circular depressions can no longer be seen in the middle of the tread, it is time for a replacement. This is an important aspect for rider safety as a worn tyre's riding characteristics are no longer adequate.

A quality tire is definitely worth its money. Hit 4,000 km on it, had about six punctures. The tire itself remained fully functional. Perfect value for money.

First ride I did 187km with some fast descents which made me a bit nervous to begin but zero problems and great smooth roll with these, I love my Contis so I purchased 3 more of this exact same tyre spec.

Best overall tyre for its budget. I'm using the 25 mm version on all my road bicycles.

Prima band! Goede grip, ook bij nat wegdek. Na 7000 km vervangen en in die tijd maar 1 keer lek gereden. Ik zou ze zo weer kopen.

Super grip and great comfort! The 700x25c version is 26,8mm wide on 17mm internal width rims which can be problematic on certain frames but I really like it because the increased comfort is noticeable and the rolling resistance is not compromised. I'm running them between 7-7,5bar.

Rolls well and is very puncture resistant. I prefer it to the 4000 ll even though it is a little bit heavier.

Great tires! Lasted for 14 000km on all conditions, mostly bad roads, under 95-110kg rider. Still going on them, and not sure when I will need to change them... 1 flat on the rear for that use period.
