High performing. All-rounder. The GP5000.

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.

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.

Continental Still Can't Figure Out Side Wall Strength

1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

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.

I have used this tire exclusively on all my bikes since it came out. It has a great road feel and feels fast. I rarely get punctures and the tire lasts a long time for having such grippy rubber.

really like the tread pattern on these tires and they are great in in wet weather, they can be a challenge to put on but if you leave them in the sun or in the a bucket of hot water it will make them easier to put on, make sure to put the on with arrow facing forward.

Confident Ride, but...
rating
by Chris
Bentonville, AR

I was a long time gatorskin rider and switched when I transitioned to carbon rims. They deliver the grip and speed I appreciate. The downside is I have noticed a large uptick in sidewall damage. The kind where your tube may poke thru. I think it is the performance trade off vs. the gatorskins.

GP-5000 has a sidewall weakness
rating
by D Higgins
Competitive Racer
Chattanooga, TN

I have used many Contis over my near 40 yrs of racing. I have used the GP5000 clincher since they came out. However I have had so many fail I have had to stop using them. The problem is the sidewall splits radially, a short tear thru the sidewall about 1/8" long, They all look identical: not cut, but torn, convincing me there is an problem with the design of this tire. I don't recall having tire failures like this-I usually wear them out.

Best road clincher
rating
by Jay Anderson

Generally regarded as the best road clincher out there. I have used the GP4K for years and now rolling on GP5K. Awesome grip, no issues with durability or flats. I was at my excellent shop and asked them what tire to use when I converted to tubeless. This was top of their list.

Fast and relatively durable
rating

Tires are fast and have been relatively durable for me. Some small road hazard type of nicks after a few hundred miles. I've flatted only once thus far while riding (and was when I hit something relatively hard). Expected the tire to have damage but it took the hit. Tires look sharp and are def. a challenge to mount given the tight fit.

I get more miles from the Continental Grand Prix 5000 that any other tire that I have used. Additionally I have been using Continental Grand Prix 5000 on my Road bike and find they are flat resistant to thorns. I recommend these tires

Definite improvement over the 4000
rating
by JamesDinLA

This tire rails descents. Very impressive traction, but the jury is out on wear. It seems to get a flat spot in the center sooner than the 4000s did. I also noticed more damage to the sidewalls than I have seen on the 4000 after a short trek through gravel.

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.

Super supple tire, I went with the 32�s from a 28 and lowered the pressure a tad. These ride great! I love the feel and was really happy with the ride but kept getting flats. Then a big slash in the tire. Wish I could keep riding them but went back the the 4 season 4000�s in a 32 and haven�t had a flat since.

The Conti GP 5000 are my tires for racing and everyday riding. I have ridden on Conti GP 4000 tires for a number of years and really liked them, but the 5000's are even better. I find they grip the road really well in corners and all conditions. They are also faster (less rolling resistance) - so if you are looking for a little more speed try them out.

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.
