GP5000: The Gold-Standard For Road Tires

The Continental Grand Prix 5000 is a worthy successor to the beloved Grand Prix 4000 S II road tire, which reigned over the road-clincher bicycle tire market for over ten years. As you can imagine, creating a better version than the GP4000 was not a simple task, but Conti did it.

The new Grand Prix 5000s are high-performing all-rounders featuring even better versions of Black Chili tread compound and tear-resistant Vectran Breaker technology, as well as two new technologies: Lazer Grip and Active Comfort.

The German tire manufacturer focused specifically on the two problematic areas of the GP4000s — cornering grip and puncture protection. With their added tech in both these departments, the GP5000 rises above all other comparable clinchers.

The Vectran Breaker puncture protection is lighter, is more flexible, and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker used in previous models. Like spider silk, Vectran is an extremely strong and lightweight synthetic material, woven tightly into a multi-strand barrier.

The GP5000's Lazer Grip technology delivers more cornering traction from day one — no break-in time is required thanks to its micro profile structure that reaches over the shoulder of the tire.

Integrated into the 3-ply/330tpi casing of the Grand Prix 5000, Active Comfort technology provides stiffness in the sidewall and flexibility under the tread for greater vibration dampening and excellent ride comfort.

Grand Prix Family

The standard GP5K is only the beginning of the possibilities. If you want a tubeless version, or need hookless compatibility, check out the S TR or AS TR for all-season grip and durability. If you're after pure speed, only the TT TR will do.

This tire is a great balance between light weight and puncture protection. I use it on my Cannondale hybrid bike, and get excellent millage also.

I'm a road cyclist that wants a tire that rolls fast and has good grip--the Continental Grand Prix 5000 hits the mark. They might not have the best puncture protection, but that's to be expected from a tire that's lightweight and has low rolling resistance.

I'm running this tire (700X30) at 60lb psi front and 65psi in the rear on the road with tubes and I have no issues with fit or flats ... great confidence builder on tight twisty descents with excellent ride feel and traction ! These tires did come in 2mm smaller than claimed but is not an issue for me. They measure at 28.5mm after 1/2 dozen rides and are 100 grams lighter per pair than the next size up at 700X32 ... My set up for these wheels is to have the lightest weight for all the steeps in my zone and would not hesitate to roll out on some mild gravel with the flat protection they have. So far ... the best road tire I've put on.

Reliable, High Performance Tires
rating

After trying Michilan's, Vittorio's, Specialized and various Conti road tires, I finally settled on the 4000S (23, 25) years ago as my go-to tire. When Conti came out with the 5000 chili's I tried them (25) and liked them! I typically ride between 3500-8000+ miles per year and that includes commute, pleasure, group, training, touring, and in the past some light racing. I also delivered Jimmy John's in downtown Indianapolis from 2012-2018 part-time on these tires (28 on my SS) as part of my quest to improve my sprinting. I mean, why not get paid to ride your bike, huh?? What I've found across the board is that these tires perform overall superior to any other brand racing/performance/endurance road tire I've ever used in the past. I've found the GP4000 and 5000 to be the perfect combination so far of durable, comfortable and performance qualities. Excellent sticky grip in cornering, reliable handling on dry, wet and even somewhat on snow, equally excellent on dirty city roads as on pristine clean roads, more comfortable on chip&seal and rattlebone roads. I usually get 3000+ miles out of a set, more if I rotate tires every few of months and actively avoid glass if possible, and bad sections of road. Nowadays most of my riding is training for my annual, multiday touring of back to back century days in the saddle, which can always include unplanned surprises in road surfaces, reroutes and detours. (I plan the routes based on where I'd like to ride and Google maps/Map-My-Ride. I do not use a touring service. I like the adventure! And I prefer a carbon road bike (coz, you know, we like to get there without taking the whole day, lol!) a lightweight backpack and a credit card for these tours - 8 under my belt now!) I always put on a new set of tires the day before Bikecation and roll without worry over what unexpected surprises the road throws at us! I find these tires to do very well, rarely flatting until pretty well worn, and getting noticeably table-topped. Only once ever have I had a sidewall blowout, and that was on an aged tire and my own, awkward-moment fault. Again, rotating the tires periodically helps them last longer than if you don't. These tires have proven to be worth the money to me, especially when i can find a great deal on pricing. But I have paid - and will pay - the $70+ normal RV if I need the tires and can't find a deal at the time, with zero regrets. Although now I stock up ahead of time when I find them on sale. And that's my review! Good riding and happy trails to you!

I'd always read good things about these tires but hadn't tried a pair yet. Once there was a Deal of the Day and they came down to a price that was lower than the tires I'd have bought instead, it was an obvious choice to give them a try. Right away I noticed they gave less rolling resistance than the old tires and felt great on the road. I went up a size from 23mm to 25mm. These actually sit a bit better on the rim than the 23s I had before and don't balloon at the side too much. I can see now why these are so highly regarded and am very grateful for the chance to buy them at a reasonable price.

Over the years I have found the Continental brand the best. I get the best handling and long term use from this brand. They also look good on tire rims. I have bought the 4000 tire over the past few years. Thought Id give the 5000 a try especially since they were on sale.

I have found them to be another excellent tire from a Continental. Dont think you would make a mistake when you give them a try. I have a house in Sarasota FL and another in New Jersey. These tires are excellent on the warm fast flats in Florida. Also on the hilly terrain of central Jersey.

Feels like the Grand Prix 4000

The first thing that I noticed was that the two little wear markers in the tread are about one half of the depth on the GP 5000 as compared to the GP 4000, so I'm not quite sure if that means that there is only one half of the tread or not. I cycle 12,000 mile per year for fitness, and don't race because I don't like broken bones and road rash, although I have weekly group rides with racers. I have never actually worn out a rear GP 4000 tire because they always gashed out first from striking rocks or debris. On the front I do wear out a GP 4000. I get about 2,000 miles per tire on the GP 5000.

I have used Continental Grand Prix 4000 tires on all my bikes since they were first released and I did not think a better road tire could be produced. When I saw that the Grand Prix 5000 was being released, I ordered a pair the same day. The new tire is incredible and has lived up the the claims of faster, more comfortable, and more grip. I am impressed with the improvements.

I use these tires for road riding, training, and racing. Recently upgraded to these and so far no complaints. I have only ridden them approximately 350 miles, but in that was a few 50+ mile rides where many others seemed to get flats. Very low rolling resistance and very confident in corners.
