High performing. All-rounder. The GP5000.

Continental's Grand Prix 5000 Road Tire is a high-performing all-rounder road tire 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 GP5000's Lazer Grip technology delivers more cornering traction from day one - no break-in time required thanks to its micro profile structure that reach 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.

  • Black Chili tread compound.
  • Vectran Breaker puncture protection.
  • Foldable bead.

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.

Flat city in the rain
rating

I bought the GP 5000 based on the good reviews. Lighter and faster than GP 4000 and rode fine when the weather was nice. Unfortunately, as soon as the weather got rainy up here in Seattle, I got 3 flats in 3 rides. The little rocks stick to the softer rubber in the rain, embed themselves and work through the tire I surmise. I bought some Gatorskins for the winter and will go back to the GP 4000 S in spring. The GP 4000 S did not have flat issues in the rain last winter.

Typical Conti Quality
rating
by Dalen

I ride an average of 150 miles per week. Through the years I've ridden on many tires and brands. The new 5000 is great. First thing I noticed is the more "true to size". My 25mm 4000's always measured around 28-29 after mounted...which is fine with me actually. My rims have a 19mm internal measurement. The 5000 in size 25mm with the same rims now measures about 26mm. These tires are super smooth and stick fantastic on the fast descents which is confidence inspiring. There's probably never been an absolute perfect tire but this Conti comes close to the mark. I use it for just normal everyday riding. I don't race. However, I'm competitive and push myself on most rides. My last pair of Conti, the 4000, lasted just under 3,000 miles and I only flatted once from the notorious goat thorn. With the Conti's I always switch them out way before the wear indicators are gone. If you can get a set on sale I would say there's great value for your steed.

You know the script. GPs are great tires and the 5000 is the next iteration of this greatness. Shop around. Compare. Then get another set of GPs. They are a beast to get on the first time though...

I've been using Conti GrandPrix for years. Starting with GrandPrix 4000 and now 5000. I'll put around 4k to 5k miles on a year; all on Continental Grand Prix tires. Tire wear is very good; handling excellent. Two good notes about WesternBikeWorks; they matched a competitors with no issue plus they did a return on tires when I mistakenly bought the wrong sized tires on one order. WBW returned the tires with no hassle and shipped me the size I should have ordered. These 2 things sold me on this bike store!

Have had these for about 6 weeks. They roll nicely and are lighter than my Michelin Power Endurance. Time will tell how long they last but � so far so good�. They seem to grip the road well on descents and through curves. I bought the 28mm and I like the feel of them although for some reason they don�t look as wide as the Michelins

I really believe that tires are one of the most important components on your bike. Tires impact comfort, performance and safety. I probably replace tires much sooner than most people, because nothing feels as great as new rubber! This means that I have experimented with about a dozen tires so far, including vittoria, panaracer, specialized, and several from continental. Nothing beats a gatorskin for a super durable, yet relatively light and fast rolling all-purpose recreation and commute tire. Until recently, the venerable Grand Prix 4-seasons was my year-around training tire and I still use them for winter training when roads are dirtier and punctures are more inconvenient. But the 5000 is my new 3-season training/performance tire. They have great rolling resistance, excellent grip (especially on dry pavement, but also on wet) and are have a soft flexible tire bed to smooth the road and conform to its surface. I was surprised to see that they are actually not much lighter (about 10 grams) than the 4-seasons, but they faster and overall better. I have to say, their claims to offer more puncture resistance than a 4-seasons (I've even seen comparisons to a gatorskin!) have not borne out for me. But they are much more puncture resistant than other performance tires such as the 4000s. So I continue to keep a set of 4-seasons for November-March, but the rest of the year the 5000 is my new favorite.

Continental Still Can't Figure Out Side Wall Strength

I road ride 5-7K miles a year, 6ft 205#. I've ridden Michelins, Vredesteins, Continentals, etc. I have a history with Continentals of side wall gashes, and have sworn them off numerous times. I had heard good things about the GP 5000's so thought I'd given them another look. These GP5000's are supple and hold the road well, especially on high speed descents. Fairly good at flat resistance too. Ultimately, I got 2700 miles out of the rear tire before tread wear was evident and ultimately the tire failed on a side wall nick on pavement, by just clipping a rock on the road shoulder. Ironically I was going to retire the tire at the end of the ride in question. The front failed with a side wall gash, also on pavement at 2100 miles. While I like the tire & I got reasonably good mileage out of the rear in particular. The fact that side wall gashes ended both tires lives, leaves me looking for alternatives. I have never, that I can recall, ever gotten a side wall gash that ruined any other tire, except Continentals.

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 have always used the Continental Grand Prix's on my wheels. I tried a competitor tire for a short period of time, was not as comfortable with the cornering ability and had a series of flats. Went back to the Grand Prix's and couldn't be happier.
