Continental Grand Prix 4-Season Special Edition Black

Continental's tough Grand Prix 4-Season is even tougher with the addition of the Vectran™ anti-puncture breaker. This all-year training and road racing tire offers the ultimate combination of speed, low weight, and all-weather performance, combined with excellent puncture and sidewall protection.

The stealth, special edition black casing is equipped with DuraSkin sidewall reinforcement for protection against cuts and abrasion. The Vectran breaker wards off flats but is also supple for less rolling resistance and greater comfort than other puncture-resistant barriers.

Features:

  • Double layer Vectran with DuraSkin sidewalls
  • Kevlar beaded folding tire.
  • 430 TPI.
  • Max inflation pressure 120/120/115 psi for 700c x 23/25/28/32mm size tires (622 ISO).
  • Weight is 220/230/250 grams.
  • Similar durability to the ever-popular Continental Gatorskin, but with added performance

    Great alternative to Gatorskin with better performance
    by  CycleRef
    Cycling Enthusiast
    Oregon

    I love the black edition (although it is very difficult to read / find the suggested pressure on the sidewall). I regularly got punctures on other types of tires here in the Portland metro area. I didn't want Gatorskins because of the riding characteristics but these are a great compromise. Very few punctures (I say "few" because we occasionally have to ride through construction areas that seem to get us every now and then so I can't fault the tire in that case). But these roll very well for the amount of protection the provide. There are faster tires with better grip, but this seems to be a great choice for protection and function.

    Best for zero flats!
    by Anonymous
    Cycling Enthusiast

    If you like to spend more time riding and less time repairing flats out on the road this tire is for you. What you give up in rolling resistance (this tire is slower than the 5000) and grip, you gain in puncture protection. Been using GP 4 Seasons for several years after being sick of flats on the 4000S series. Zero flats, zero. One downside is they are tough to mount, but I think most all conti's are.

    great lighter long lasting trainingendurance tire

    My main concern with tires is flats. I just don't want to deal with them. So for years I used Schwable Marathon Plus 32mm tires on my Salsa La Cruz. I use the bike for commuting into Portland (55 miles round trip) and for touring (a few tours each summer of about 300 miles each). I knew the Schwalbes were heavy but didn't care since I never got flats. That is, unless the 95 mile mark in the 2018 Oregon Gran Fondo. It turns out that the inside of the tire casing was defective and a little wire from the casing was poking into the inner tube. I suspect it wasn't an issue before because I typically ran the tires a bit low, but on the day of the Gran Fondo, I pumped them up to the max PSI. It was really a pain to fix (I had to use a worn piece of gravel to grind the frayed wire down and still ended up pumping the tire up to the minimum inflation to complete the ride). After that mess, I swore I'd switch to a folding tire.

    I looked around for a folding tire with similar puncture resistance and came upon the Grand Prix 4-season. I have over 3,000 miles on them and have just reached the point where I need to replace the rear tire (trust be told I probably should have replaced it about 500 miles ago). The front will probably be good for another thousand miles or so. And so far, ZERO FLATS! As a side benefit, they are much lighter than the Schwalbes and it's very noticeable. The bike is much snappier from a standstill and much faster on the steeper (and longer) hills.

    Supple, Durable, & Fast
    by Carl
    Minneapolis

    I love Continental tires, so I'm a bit biased, but these are fantastic tires! I put these on my Peugeot commuter about 2 months ago and I've only had one flat on these since then (it was a nail). These are much lighter & more supple-feeling than Gatorskins, which is great for longer rides. The all-black color scheme is a great look, too.

    My favorite road tires ever
    by Dr Mono
    Cycling Enthusiast
    Minnesota

    I live in Minnesota and I need road tires that can handle extreme weather conditions (e.g. hot summers and VERY cold winters). I have tried everything and I always come back to the Conti 4-Season tires. They have Gatorskin-like durability, but are lighter and fast rolling. They are not as fast as the GP 5000, but they are absolutely the best tires for training - durable and great grip under all weather conditions. Highly recommended!

    My Flats Stopped When I Got These!

    When I got my new Trek Domane, it came with 32s which I just wasn't ready to go to. I had always run Continental GP 4000S IIs - 23s or 25s, and I saw they made 28s in that tire also, so I got those. I loved the softness of the wider tire and lower air pressure, but I got 4 flats within 200 miles. All goatheads. I lost confidence in the ability of those tires to fend off a couple teeny tiny goatheads, so I went with these 4 Seasons. So far, 300 more miles on the same roads, zero flats. They are a hair stiffer, but I'll take the stronger durability. The black edition was a little splurge but does look better with my partly black bike.

    Some Things Are Worth The Price
    by Glorenzen
    Cycling Enthusiast

    I picked up an old Trek 2100 Composite with many custom components. It had an older version of this tire that made the handling very twitchy. This is a nice upgrade that smooths out the front end, with a nice ride & the stability & durability of a Kevlar tire on a lean profile. I am running a Black Edition Gatorskin on the back with higher rolling resistance ...when it wears out, this is my choice. To paraphrase a successful ad, "Everything rides on your tires".

    Huge frustration - 1 month/5 flats
    by Jack

    I want to love these tires. Coming from Conti gatorskins (wirebeads), i trusted the Conti name and I love that these are lighter and much easier to install, and bonus points for looking slick. However, in month of use, I've had FIVE flats, 4 in front and 1 in back. Each one has been a pinch, totally blowing out the tube and leaving me stranded on the side of the road miles from home. I'm not new to changing tubes and I never had an issue like this before. Immensely immensely disappointed and frustrated with these tires.

    Only tires I use. I am doing more long touring now days. Not racing or worrying about time. Nice grip, good puncture resistance and long lasting tire. Have these on 3 different bikes. Used the 4000s and Dura skins primarily before switching to these. Some slower roll with the extra grip. I did switch to 25mm wheels which helped but probably a wash on speed/resistance gain with wheel set change and adding these tires. Great tire though and no longer changing blown tubes all the time! Highly recommended.

    I ride 5-10,000 miles a year. Less so now with Covid and working from home. No commuting. I have been riding mostly Gator skin duraskin or hardshell for commuting the last 10 years. Continental 4000 for road. Like most note the 4000 blew out on the sides after awhile, have a pair of 5000 which have not had the same issue but they are fairly new. Switched to the 4 seasons on my gravel bike, commuting bike and one of my road bikes. Only tire I buy now. I am not racing or going for time so a little slower roll is an acceptable pay off for me. The extra grip with these is nice on some tight down hill corners I ride in the summer along the bluffs. Love those S curves. These roll well, are a bit grippy and good puncture resistance. In town our roads suck so on my commuter and gravel bike I do add some of the Ultra-thin Tuffy tape. Not one flat in 2-3 years since I switched!! Awesome! If you want a super clean roll, speed and time are a consideration for you the 5000s are probably a better tire for you. If you want a tire with decent roll, bit of extra grip, and some decent puncture protection these are the tire for you. They last longer than my other tires too which is a bonus.

    Good balance between performance and life-time. Of course they are plenty of cheaper tyres but you pay for quality here. on the other hand, there are more expensive tyres too, but risk of getting a flat tyre or tiny incremental performance ( on the paper) does not justify premium cost for me. I ride every week, all seasons and thus tyre fits my need. Also, i was lucky to get the all-black edition, it looks awesome on my carbon wheels.

    I will definitely repurchase in few months.

    Best Tire for Me
    by Andrew R

    Already reviewed the 28mm. These are excellent, durable tires without the rock hard feel of Gatorskins. I rode 1000s miles over 18 months without a single puncture on very messy urban roads where multiple punctures per ride are the norm, as well as a lot of time on the turbo trainer. Rear tire finally retired due to a small sidewall gash that I booted to get home. Could've kept using it but decided to upgrade to 32mm.

    32mm just give a bit more comfort with lower pressure.

    All black version is slightly darker sidewall then the regular ones that have an almost imperceptible burgundy tint.
