Eliminate compromise in your race tire.

The Grand Prix 4000 S II is even grippier, more durable, and faster than its predecessor. That's because Continental is able to improve their exclusive Black Chili compound just a little bit every year, thanks to their continued dedication to research and development.

What is Black Chili? It's a unique rubber formula with an ultra-dense construction and high silica content, allowing it to deliver outstanding grip and blazing fast speeds. This cutting-edge formula is also optimized for reliability and longevity, making it a great choice when both performance and durability are top priorities.

The GP 4000 S II also features Conti's patented Vectran puncture protection breaker. Vectran was originally developed by NASA in the construction of space shuttles and suits, and Continental has brought its otherworldly lightweight protection to bike tires, making these lightweight tires impressively flat-resistant.

All in all, the GP 4000 S II is Continental's most advanced racing clincher yet, with a truly unique blend of speed, durability, and, now, aesthetics. Thanks to the high-tech materials and years of testing and development, the GP 4000 S II delivers low rolling resistance and superb handling with exceptional puncture protection and higher mileage performance than a typical race tire.

The Grand Prix 4000 S II features a three-ply 330 TPI casing. Kevlar folding bead. Max inflation is 120 PSI. Claimed weight is 205 grams (700c x 23mm)

Great all purpose tire

This is my go-to tire. It's a fast tire and they feel stable when I'm screaming down a descent. I've tried other tires that are more puncture resistance but I find that the Conti 4000S tires are faster. I ride in the SF Bay Area where the roads (and bike lanes) are in terrible condition with a lot of debris. I've had a run of bad luck lately with this tire though. In the past 2 months, I experienced 12 flats, mostly from broken glass and one flat from a goathead.

Switching from a completely smooth road tire to a grippier one was the best switch. Massively versatile for a road tire.

Our rough roads have eaten every tire I have tried (Michelin, Panaracer, including previous Continentals and a list of others). These were on sale and decided to give them a try, they are holding up better than expected with the use of kevlar liners and puncture resistant tubes-I spend time riding not repairing. I have been very impressed with the road feel of these tires and after a long ride I usually have slight cuts in the outer tire casing and so far no cuts.

Have ridden on this tire for 18 months in 28 width. Have always ridden 23 to 25 but after doing some more research decided to try the 28's. As with many things in life it's hard to admit that everything you thought you knew was right is proven wrong when you finally give in and try. These tires are not slower, they might be a little heavier but not enough to make a difference for most riders. Their toughness is amazing. I finally decided after a summer of riding to buy another set in preparation for spring. The current set has multiple slices that would have flattened other tires.

This tire doesn't disappoint. It offers a perfect balance of durability but is still light enough for quick training. It could even be a solid tire for race days.

Perfect tire for year round use. Handles the wet roads found here for most of the year, and then really shines during the couple of months of dry. Range of widths provide an option for all. Does run a little wider than posted dimensions.

I had previously ridden on Vittoria Open Corsa clinchers. These ride as fast as the Vit's but not as supple. The Vit's are good for a 1500 miles max. and seem to cut very easily.The speed advantage the Conti's provide more than makes up for the less supple ride quality and so far I've experienced no punctures. When on sale I usually buy a pair.

Super fast, super grippy, relatively long lasting. These have been my go-to tire for as long as I can remember. New bikes get them installed near immediately. I use these daily and no complaints on longevity, but the 4-Season isn't a bad option if you're not racing.

I have raced and trained on these tires for many years and they enspire confidence. With average of about 3800 miles a year, I only get one flat per year. Great traction on both dry and wet surfaces.

Nice tire except the sidewall failed (tear) after only 1200 miles. No obvious cause - smooth road. Too bad - I liked it otherwise. Seems like it had goodlow rolling resistance on my kind of roads. Won't buy it again because of the failure.

Really wanted to like this tire... but can not recommend
rating
by Anonymous

I decided to switch over to the 4000S after reading all the positive reviews for a summer of riding in the Mountains of Western North Carolina. The tires felt fast and smooth... very nice riding. Unfortunately, after a few hundred mikes I had a sidewall blowout (very dangerous on mountian rides!). I purchased another 4000S from a local LBS, only to have a 2nd sidewall blowout about 7 weeks later. After my first blowout, I started regularly checking my tires for cuts prior to rides and saw nothing. Talking to 2 members of my cycling group they also experienced sidewall blowouts before on these tires. Maybe just bad luck, but based on personal experience and comments form others I will not use these tires again. I have been riding Michelin and Specialized tires (both prior and after) on the same wheels without incident...
