The Conti GP 5000 are my tires for racing and everyday riding. I have ridden on Conti GP 4000 tires for a number of years and really liked them, but the 5000's are even better. I find they grip the road really well in corners and all conditions. They are also faster (less rolling resistance) - so if you are looking for a little more speed try them out.
ber gription, YES STICKY (even in wet conditions), tough (used on road, small aggregate fire road, easy single track...so far), available in tubeless model (this is the model I'm writing about), NOT SUPER light but acceptable, mounted relatively easy BY HAND and pumped up with REGULAR floor pump, with NO sealant, on a 2015 Reynolds Blacklabel 29er XC wheelset (I did add sealant post mounting...why tempt fate). I've never been a big Continental fan but this tire has changed my mind, at least for this model 5000 TL 32mm
Having just moved to tubeless, I wanted a fast rolling, yet durable tire. Research shows the 5000 TL is one of the fastest on the market today. Having previously ridden its tubed predecessor, a 25mm GP 5000, I knew Conti made a quality tire, yet it always felt stiff. I left that model for the buttery smooth ride of a 28mm Vittoria Corsa with skin walled cotton casing. Now I'm back to Conti for a 25mm GP 5000 TL. Set up tubeless, as it is intended, this tire strikes the balance it's fast, it's got incredible grip through corners, and it rolls really nice as well. It is not as supple as cotton casing, but a racier feel that is still comfy. I'm 5'9, 150lb, & run the tires 75psi front & 90 back, with a full Stan's set up.
