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.
These tires have pros and cons. They roll incredible smooth and running low 85 PSI, they absorb a lot of harsh road feel. But I've punctured on them twice. One puncture self-sealed. The other puncture was due to a rock and ripped the side-wall. It did not self seal and I needed to plug it. This is all within a month of owning the tires.
ber gription, YES STICKY (even in wet conditions), tough (used on road, small aggregate fire road, easy single track...so far), available in tubeless model (this is the model I'm writing about), NOT SUPER light but acceptable, mounted relatively easy BY HAND and pumped up with REGULAR floor pump, with NO sealant, on a 2015 Reynolds Blacklabel 29er XC wheelset (I did add sealant post mounting...why tempt fate). I've never been a big Continental fan but this tire has changed my mind, at least for this model 5000 TL 32mm
