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

  • B-Stock - This product has one or more B-Stock units available. These units can be purchased at a discount (see option select).

    After trying many other tires I finally discovered the best of 'em all. This is a durable, long lasting tire. I get thousands of miles out of these tires and very few flats. It fits the rims nicely, so it is less effort when taking them off and putting them back on. Great cornering and tracking, even on wet pavement. I ride 25's and the drag is not noticeable if there is one. My air pressure is 100 psi. My opinion is this is the best tire out there.

    Loud, harsh ride. Switched to Conti 5000 and 4-season showed no discernable flat prevention over 5000
    by JonJ

    I used these before i put Conti 5000's on my bike. Had issues with flats from other brands so gave it a try. No flats over caliche, sandstone stretches of up to 1.5 miles on my road bike -- puncture resistance was not the issue. Loud, harsher ride. Did not like the feel at all. Tried Conti 5000's when they came out, replacing these. Ride of course does not compare and traversed the same stretches of caliche and sandstone (cobbles up to 1.5") many times with no flats. With no flatting issues on some ugly road stretches, i will stick with 5000's and have a great tire for the road and the caliche cobbles.

    Good Flat Protection with Lower Rolling Resistance

    Perfect rear tire on my new Cannondale Super Six for rough roads, chip seal, debris. Much lighter than my previous go-to, Gatorskins. Great bridge between training and racing tires. More expensive, but worth it.

    Love these tires. My go to as I feel safe in any riding condition. They grip the road well and stick well when cornering. I usually wait until they go on sale but well worth the price if you have to buy at regular selling price. I used to ride Gator Skins (which are great all purpose tires) but now I only ride the 4-seasons.

    Continental makes great tires
    by Keith

    I couldn't decide between these or Gatorskins, but I like the all-black look. I had to replace one destroyed by a piece of metal that would have taken out any tire short of a Schwalbe Marathon. The Marathons are like truck tires, so the Conti's are a much better compromise between toughness and performance.

    Light enough to help performance yet durable enough for a commuter tire unless you are on truly gnarly roads. I only switched to Gatorskin Hardshells because I am riding alone a lot. Gartorskins are much heavier and puncture proof in theory. I

    As a 3-4,000 mile a year cyclist who doesn't race, finding a value priced tire that has a supple ride, provides superior handling, and durable all in one package is a real bonus. This one measures up in that respect.

    If you're used to fast 4000s or 5000.

    You are not going to like it. It�s rolling resistant is not as good as gp 4000. But it�s tough on side wall cuts and grippy. Not the fastest tire for speed, it�s good for training set of tires or commute. So far so good as I have intended to use for.

    my favorite rear tire
    by Wally
    Cycling Enthusiast
    NE Illinois, SE Wisconsin

    My history for rear flats is appalling. This is my latest attempt at mitigation..

    It has turned out quite well. 2100 miles w no rear flats. This is very good for me and includes removing a staple from the rear tread after one ride wo a problem.

    On the downside I blew out a front at 500 miles w a sidewall cut.

    Now riding w Michelin Power Protection on the front (always been good on the front) and Conti 4-Season on the rear and having very good results. I do 100 mile rides (3 last week) so tire reliability is a big deal for me.

    It's not scientific, but I haven't ever had better results.

    I have been road biking for many years, completing many centuries. I get more miles out of this tire than any other I have tried. I have less flats, too. The grip is good on wet pavement and cornering is excellent. Great traction. I use the 25's.

    great lighter long lasting trainingendurance tire
    by Jay
    Cycling Enthusiast
    Portland, Oregon

    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.

    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.
