Making the best tyre even better: the Grand Prix 5000 from Continental
Continental was faced with the difficult task of developing a worthy successor to the Grand Prix 4000 S II - the tire that continues to dominate performance tests. Also required: rolling resistance, high mileage, speed as well as puncture protection.
How has Continental accomplished this stunning feat? The answer to this question is based on the most important aspects of your time spent on a bike - whether in training or competition, rain or shine, cold or heat, chasing after your best times, or just to relax -- because it is your time.
The result is the Grand Prix 5000 - an all-round tyre on a completely new performance level. With the Grand Prix 5000 you will ride faster, more comfortably and with even more puncture resistance. It was made to make you better, and so Continental has left nothing to chance in its development.
The brand new Grand Prix 5000 is also available in a tubeless version for fans of tubeless riding.

The Continental Premium tyres have been designed to deliver top performance. They are equipped with the latest technologies, which have been developed together with the most successful athletes in the world. They are handmade by the experienced specialists in Korbach (Germany). Added to this are selected materials for the highest quality and outstanding properties.
The rolling characteristics of the rubber compound of a tyre are determined by three interacting factors: Static friction (grip), rolling resistance and mileage. The dilemma: If one of these factors is improved, at least one other factor deteriorates in return. BlackChili Compound is the name of Continental's revolutionary tread compound based on the latest findings in polymer and raw material research. For BlackChili, Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with proven natural rubber into particularly high-performance tread compounds. Conti adds nanoscale carbon black particles to these rubbers, which are optimised in shape and surface properties in order to match the compound to the respective application of the tyre. Tyres with BlackChili Compound achieve an unprecedented level of performance.
The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tyres with BlackChili Compound are produced exclusively at Continental in Korbach, Germany.
The reference in puncture protection. A synthetically produced high-tech fibre with spun silk as a natural model. Vectran is spun from the molten liquid polymer Vectra and processed into a multi-fibre yarn. Enormously tear-resistant at the lowest possible weight - just right to be used as puncture protection in a premium tyre by Continental. And this without affecting the rolling resistance.
Lazer Grip makes you one with the road. The laser cut micro-profile structure focuses on the shoulder area of the tyre for enhanced cornering grip.
Active Comfort is a revolutionary approach to road cycling. Integrated into the tyre construction, Active Comfort Technology absorbs shocks and ensures outstanding driving experience.
