Continental Grand Prix 4-Season Special Edition Black

Continental's tough Grand Prix 4-Season is even tougher with the addition of the Vectran™ anti-puncture breaker. This all-year training and road racing tire offers the ultimate combination of speed, low weight, and all-weather performance, combined with excellent puncture and sidewall protection.

The stealth, special edition black casing is equipped with DuraSkin sidewall reinforcement for protection against cuts and abrasion. The Vectran breaker wards off flats but is also supple for less rolling resistance and greater comfort than other puncture-resistant barriers.

Features:

  • Double layer Vectran with DuraSkin sidewalls
  • Kevlar beaded folding tire.
  • 430 TPI.
  • Max inflation pressure 120/120/115 psi for 700c x 23/25/28/32mm size tires (622 ISO).
  • Weight is 220/230/250 grams.
  • Similar durability to the ever-popular Continental Gatorskin, but with added performance

  • B-Stock - This product has one or more B-Stock units available. These units can be purchased at a discount (see option select). B-Stock units were returned from other customers and may have missing or damaged packaging materials. These units are otherwise as new. The full manufacturer warranty applies.

    Only tires I use. I am doing more long touring now days. Not racing or worrying about time. Nice grip, good puncture resistance and long lasting tire. Have these on 3 different bikes. Used the 4000s and Dura skins primarily before switching to these. Some slower roll with the extra grip. I did switch to 25mm wheels which helped but probably a wash on speed/resistance gain with wheel set change and adding these tires. Great tire though and no longer changing blown tubes all the time! Highly recommended.

    I ride 5-10,000 miles a year. Less so now with Covid and working from home. No commuting. I have been riding mostly Gator skin duraskin or hardshell for commuting the last 10 years. Continental 4000 for road. Like most note the 4000 blew out on the sides after awhile, have a pair of 5000 which have not had the same issue but they are fairly new. Switched to the 4 seasons on my gravel bike, commuting bike and one of my road bikes. Only tire I buy now. I am not racing or going for time so a little slower roll is an acceptable pay off for me. The extra grip with these is nice on some tight down hill corners I ride in the summer along the bluffs. Love those S curves. These roll well, are a bit grippy and good puncture resistance. In town our roads suck so on my commuter and gravel bike I do add some of the Ultra-thin Tuffy tape. Not one flat in 2-3 years since I switched!! Awesome! If you want a super clean roll, speed and time are a consideration for you the 5000s are probably a better tire for you. If you want a tire with decent roll, bit of extra grip, and some decent puncture protection these are the tire for you. They last longer than my other tires too which is a bonus.

    First rear tire threads starting unraveling at the rim causing wear in side wall and then the front tire had started doing the same. Had purchased a new tire but I am returning it since the front tire is having the same issue. fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. I'm going back to Conti 5000s .

    After years of trying brand after brand of racing and enthusiasts all around road tires, I was fortunate to come across the GP 4-season "black edition" and its now been my only choice for replacement. Long miles and great on protection from road debris. Stop with the frequent flat repairs that hold you back, and ride for hours without the worry of having to call for SAG.

    I used these before i put Conti 5000's on my bike. Had issues with flats from other brands so gave it a try. No flats over caliche, sandstone stretches of up to 1.5 miles on my road bike -- puncture resistance was not the issue. Loud, harsher ride. Did not like the feel at all. Tried Conti 5000's when they came out, replacing these. Ride of course does not compare and traversed the same stretches of caliche and sandstone (cobbles up to 1.5") many times with no flats. With no flatting issues on some ugly road stretches, i will stick with 5000's and have a great tire for the road and the caliche cobbles.

    Portland has some rough paved streets throughout town but these tires (the old set of the same tires) held the test of time and handing highly variable pavement conditions for more miles than I anticipated them lasting with only one flat that could not be blamed on the tire's performance. Additionally when taking them for a whirl around the area, they held tight to the road in high speed curves and cornering.

    It's a great tire in the wet and dry. I feel more confident riding with these on. It's a bit pricey and the treads seem to easily pick up little bits so you may want to double check often that nothing sharp is caught in there.

    These are my go to tire. Love the 4000s which just retired and have the new 5000s. The 4000s sidewalls has a tendency to blow after so many miles though. These 4 season have good flat protection, good roll and great grip. Rode 4000s and dura skin for years. These are all I ride now. I put on 10000 miles or more a year between commuting and weekend rides and good wheel sets, tires and saddle make all the difference.

    Although this tire was somewhat difficult to change, the traction, wear-ability and puncture resistance make the effort worth while. The side walls are very sturdy. Wearing the tires out without a puncture was a big plus. Now on set #2 after a several thousand miles on set 1.

    This year, I decided that no matter the weather or conditions (so long as temps are above 20f and there isn't 3 of snow on the road) that I'm going to put at least 75 miles on the bike each week. Living in Boulder, Co... that can be challenging. With the addition of the GP 4 Seasons, I've lost all but one excuse... Excessive snow. They'd probably be fine in said weather, but I'm not. These things GRIP. I've been riding a lot of slushy, semi-snow covered, sandy, and wet roads, and they don't let go. On top of that, Western Bike Works had the best price on the internet so that was impossible to pass up. I'll definitely be running these tires during the off-season for the foreseeable future and will also purchase from WBW again!

    I ride gravel trails with the grand kids and occasionally commute on debris laden deteriorating city streets with inattentive drivers. Good side wall protection is a must and thus have avoided many opportunities for punctures. Adjust the air pressure to the terrain 40 - 55 lbs. and ride with confidence. I have not made a direct comparison with comparable Compass tires but I think they are close in speed and comfort - on sale well worth the price. Had been using 32 mm Gatorskins and these are better for all weather traction, comfort and speed. The black edition actually improves the appearance of my beater VO campeur. To sum up, A tire that does its job very well.
