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.

Conti has also released colored-sidewall versions that can add flair to your tarmac trophy bike or your radical racehorse.

Got these to replace the last set of GP 5000s that had lived their life and performed well. Mounted them on Hunt aero wheels and am impressed by the cornering and low rolling resistance. Transparent sidewalks look pretty slick. Highly recommended.

I have been using Continental tires for quite some time - I have been riding for 32 years and using Conti's since the early 90s - and I have always been impressed with their performance. This tire is no exception. The ride quality is top notch, right up there with tubeless/tubulars. I have not used this particular tire long enough to give it a durability rating or comment on that. Easy to install and they look great.

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.

Reliable, High Performance Tires

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've ridden on these tires for years and except for picking up a jagged piece of metal which ripped the side wall after catching on the rear brake, I've not had a flat in over 30,000 miles. I'm an endurance rider, but I love hard cornering and "bombing" down-hills. These tires handle it all. The GP5000 is the ONLY tire I buy.

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.

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.

We got tired of air leakage with GP5000 tubeless, plus having to clean inside on a schedule. Went back to clincher GP5000 with great results. On ordinary suburban rides (i.e. not inner city or such with glass everywhere), have never gotten a flat with these. Love them.

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 am an old guy (74) and have been riding my Road Bike on these tires since they first came out. I ride 150 miles a week on the road here in Florida. The conditions of our roads here is proof we need a sensible infrastructure package. The roads go from really smooth (rare) to almost gravel pretending to be real pavement. Besides that, with the explosion of construction in Florida's fast growing population the bike paths are full of nuts, bolts, nails, and considerable amounts of plastic and glass. It is very difficult to keep from rolling over all that stuff because of the busy traffic at all times of day. All that to say that I seldom have a flat tire riding the 5000's and can say the ride is surprisingly comfortable. I also ride in the rain for a season and feel perfectly safe on the wet roads. I have tried many different tires over the last 25 years and no longer test out any other tires. You won't be disappointed with these tires.

I've tried "faster" tires, and they are great for race day or an epic ride, but I find I always end up with multiple flats over time. These Continentals, with standard tubes, last me an entire season of well over a thousand miles. I find them to be a great balance between fast and durable.

My choice for all tarmac rides. Good grip, very easy to mount and fit to rim. I run inner tubes and never had a puncture on them.

My only gripe is that tread wears out a lot faster than the predecessor GP 4000s.

I've ridden on Conti's for several years. My last set was a 25mm GP5000. This time I went wider to 28mm. The tire really sticks to the road. If you air down a little with the wider tire the ride quality is great. My rims are 19mm internal and when mounted the tires measure right at 28mm or just a tiny bit over. I weigh around 155 and ride with 70 psi front and 75 psi rear. My only complaint is I've had 2 punctures in 1100 miles. I guess you can always complain about the hassle of punctures that can happen with any tire under all sorts of circumstances...however, I was hoping for a little more resistance to the common thorn or glass. I recommend them for all around riding. The weight is also good for the size and all around type use.

I bought these to replace my aging tires specifically for a century in San Antonio with all the crappy Texas chip seal you can imagine and they held up great (no flats!). I bought 28mm and haven't tried putting calipers on them but my guess is they're narrow. I was able to mount them with my bare hands too, which is always a plus. Great tires, would buy again.
