Be tough, all year round.

Continental's Grand Prix 4-Season Tire, already a great all-weather choice, is now even greater with the addition of Vectran, their patented anti-puncture material. Vectran prevents flats while remaining supple and flexible for low rolling resistance, which means a faster, smoother, worry-free ride for you. The 4-Season with Vectran is a lightweight, puncture-resistant, versatile tire that performs great all year round. Black casing with DuraSkin sidewall reinforcement for extra protection against cuts and abrasion.

As durable as the Conti Gatorskin, but with greater performance.

Kevlar bead, folding tire. Available in 23, 25, 28, and 32mm widths. Max pressure: 120 psi (700 x 23/25mm), 115 psi (700c x 28mm). Weight: 220g (700c x 23mm), 230g (700c x 25mm), 250g (700c x 28mm).

Great balance for an every day tire
by Mike C

Puncture resistance, stickiness, low wear. This has become my everyday tire.

Amazing!
by P�l m�ller

Recently installed these and with over 100 miles I am extremely willing to say that these roll smooth,they are light, I can run high psi and quiet to boot! If looking for a tyre I highly recommend these.

Continental Tires have served me well racing and training for 35 years
by Toby

These tires are great for training. They wear very well and handle in good and bad weather. I usually get 3 years out of a set of Continental tires. I average 12 thousand miles a year. I'm a light rider weighing between 128 and 130 lbs. The last set I went 3 years without a single flat. A lot of the roads in southwestern Ohio and Indiana are not the greatest either.

I highly recommend these tires.

Excellent tire . . . tread looks great after 2,000 miles
by Ewing NJ Bike guy

I switched from by usual Continental Gator Hardshell to these because they were on sale, and can't tell the difference. I have about 2000 miles on the Continental Grand Prix 4-Season Special Edition Black and very little wear on the tread. The sidewall seems a little more beat up than usual, but I don't know if it's me or the tire.

My preferred tire year round.
by Merlin

I've used these tires (either special edition black or original) for over 5 years. The hold up well, get relatively few punctures, and ride very well.

I'll certainly continue using these in wet or dry weather!

Was having too many flats.
by Griff
Cycling Enthusiast
Wichita, KS

Have used a different brand of tire for many years, too many flats, needed something with less flats.

Ordered these in a 700x25c this year to try. My first ride on them I noticed much less rolling resistance.

I have ridden them for 2200 miles this year and have not had any flats. I use these on a Cannondale Cad8

bicycle ridden only on paved roads. These will be my go to tire on my road bike now.

My Flats Stopped When I Got These!
by COLObiker

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.

Compromise between ride and durability
by Mark A
Cycling Enthusiast
Princeton, NJ

These tires deliver the best compromise between ride quality, grip, and durability. They don't excel at any one of those aspects and that's likely the objective. Heightening one seems to take away from the other. These are good for everyday commuting or training but they definitely don't roll and ride as well as others targeted for speed or ride quality. For the money, they can't be beat. They'll survive a century ride over rural roads and last a long time. I just wish these delivered a better ride but that would mean the sidewall losing strength and puncture protection being compromised. I am going to try the 5000s and compare. Given I just used the Vittoria Corsas (zero durability but buttery smooth), that's likely the next tire I'll try to get a better ride.

Great all around tire
by Anonymous
1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

These are my go to tire. Love the 4000s which just retired and have the new 5000s. The 4000s sidewalls has a tendency to blow after so many miles though. These 4 season have good flat protection, good roll and great grip. Rode 4000s and dura skin for years. These are all I ride now. I put on 10000 miles or more a year between commuting and weekend rides and good wheel sets, tires and saddle make all the difference.

Longest lasting Continental race tire in my experience
by summerd
Cycling Enthusiast
Chattanooga area
2 of 2 customers found this review helpful.

I've ridden several tire brands for the last 26 years - Continental has always been durable but not necessarily long-lasting in my experience (in the competitive-race category tires).

It was a pleasant surprise to realize I rode almost 3000 miles on this rear tire (granted, it was off-season), 2000-2500 is more the norm for my usual go-to brand. So if there's something new with the Grand Prix 4 to make it tougher than before, then I can vouch it's true!

The commuter standard or close to it.
by Doug L.

I ride gravel trails with the grand kids and occasionally commute on debris laden deteriorating city streets with inattentive drivers. Good side wall protection is a must and thus have avoided many opportunities for punctures. Adjust the air pressure to the terrain 40 - 55 lbs. and ride with confidence. I have not made a direct comparison with comparable Compass tires but I think they are close in speed and comfort - on sale well worth the price. Had been using 32 mm Gatorskins and these are better for all weather traction, comfort and speed. The black edition actually improves the appearance of my beater VO campeur. To sum up, A tire that does its job very well.

These tires are fantastic for commuting in the PNW. Lots of grip in the rain, fairly light and great durability. I got over 3k out of my rear tire going over rough roads and. lots of broken glass. Just picked up a new set on sale from Western. Great bike shop!

This is my second pair of these Grand Prix tires. They roll fast, come in several sizes and have fantastic flat protection. They are great for Spring and Fall conditions when the roads might be rather nasty. You might want to swap for something a bit lighter in the Summer.

The tougher version of the best all around road clincher available.

I've used 28mm GP 4-Seasons tires for years - for winter training, commuting, touring, gravel, and on a tandem. I think of them as a tougher version of the 4000S. Great grip, durability, and puncture resistance. The black side walls on the Black Edition make 'em look a bit cooler than the old gum-wall version, too!
