The Grand Prix 5000 28" Folding Tyre by Continental for fast road bikes


The Grand Prix 5000 folding tyre in a 28-inch size from Continental is the logical tyre choice if you ride your road bike with a tube-tyre combination. This premium tyre impresses with low rolling resistance, high mileage and puncture protection at top speeds. The BlackChili natural rubber compound has a good balance of grip, rolling resistance and mileage. The Lazer Grip structure gives you good grip, especially in curves, and prevents the tyre from slipping. This keeps you safe and fast in all conditions, rain or shine, warmth or cold. The integrated Vectran™ Breaker high-tech fibres and the three-layer carcass ensure high puncture protection at low weight. Thanks to Active Comfort Technology, you ride comfortably at all times because vibrations are absorbed. Whether as a training or competition tyre, the Grand Prix 5000 offers you full performance at all times.

The Grand Prix 5000 is also available in a tubeless version - for fans of tubeless riding.

Technology:

Premium
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.

BlackChili Compound
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.

Vectran™ Breaker
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
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
Active Comfort is a revolutionary approach to road cycling. Integrated into the tyre construction, Active Comfort Technology absorbs shocks and ensures outstanding driving experience.

These have so much grip!
Really great tyres :)

They seem pretty OK in the wet too, far better than I had expected from a nearly smooth tyre.

I now have them on 3 bikes and I'm not sure if I would ever change!
