High performing. All-rounder. The GP5000.

Formidable but Flawed

Purchased three 700X28c GP5K's. Anticipating my standard rotation of two rear tyres (expecting 3K miles ea.) / one front. Say four to six months of riding. TOTAL usage from these three was <250 miles. Three mystery (non sidewall) cuts, from mystery debris that shredded the tyre even thru the liner and created emphatic tubular flats. My first ride, 30 miles rolled, following the group and Bam, one rear tire gone. We scouted for what could have caused this and nothing was found. Called up the 2nd tyre and new Schwalbe tube and had a fine ride. GP5K provided comfort at speed, confidence in cornering, was agile and quick. Then two days later another Bam moment. Put the front GP5K on rear; placed a used Vittoria Corsa Control on front and enjoyed a twin bammer day in less than 100Km. Theory, desert southwest summer asphalt temp.'s, speeds all near 25 mph, and a design flaw where what should be a tiny debris cut cascades into a major tyre/tube destroying tear.

Puncture resistance is improved and I put that to the test.

Before taking the new road bike tire for a spin, I reviewed the technology first. The Grand Prix 5000 has a 12% lower rolling resistance, a 20% better puncture resistance and 10 grams less weight according to Continental. The tires puncture resistance was improved and I put that to the test. While out for a ride we encountered a large patch of glass. My buddies all got flats. I pulled some glass shards out of the tire. No damage and No Flats... The tire smoothly glides over asphalt and my bike has no problem accelerating.

Great tire but very soft!
by Alexis
Cycling Enthusiast

I've used other GP4000 / GP4000S tires in the past and was not impressed with them. They didn't offer the rolling resistance or cornering grip I liked.

The GP5000 tires (in 28mm) changed that. I find these tires are great for all around riding, cornering grip and rolling resistance.

Unfortunately, you can't get everything. These tires are soft and can be punctured pretty easily. I would avoid running over any glass or thorns. I've gone through many tires already, but I accept that fact for having nearly "race-tire"-like performance on a daily basis.

Buy these tires if you want grip, but accept that they can and will be punctured. I hope you have extra tubes and co2 cartridges while riding! I had both tires go flat from riding through an area of thorns. Not fun.

These tires are also quite expensive, but if you can find them on sale, buy them! When they were half off, I bought three pairs of them. I just love these tires but accept they're fragile.

They roll great but...
by Ricky

I bought a pair of 5000's this spring for the summer season. I've ridden Gatorskins and Four Seasons exclusively for the past few years. I was looking forward to the new rubber after reading the early reviews. As advertised, I found the roll was impressively better. Unfortunately, as my miles increased so did the problems. I weigh about 205 pounds, bigger than the "classic" cyclist to be sure. My riding is road both in the city and on less traveled rural roads. Still, after about 1000 miles or so the rear tire was missing a few chunks of rubber and was decidedly worn. I replaced it hoping for better luck. Bottom line, flats have increased on both the newer rear tire and now the front. This is my experience only but I hope the next series of 5000's wear better and are more flat resistant.

These 32mm GP 5000 replaced 28 mm Gatorskins. I wanted 28s and they were out so decided to try the 32s since wide tires are all the rage. It may be my imagination but they seem heavier and slower. My times aren't much different but my ride feels more sluggish. I'm not upset with the tires but I'm not excited about them either. They were a good value.

Not the 4000's
by Anonymous

I guess my reaction to these is tainted because I expected the 5000s to be the next improved version of the 4000's. Instead I found a totally different tire - not as tough, not as long lasting and not worth the price. And the worst part is I can't find the 4000s anywhere.

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.

Flat city in the rain
by jml

I bought the GP 5000 based on the good reviews. Lighter and faster than GP 4000 and rode fine when the weather was nice. Unfortunately, as soon as the weather got rainy up here in Seattle, I got 3 flats in 3 rides. The little rocks stick to the softer rubber in the rain, embed themselves and work through the tire I surmise. I bought some Gatorskins for the winter and will go back to the GP 4000 S in spring. The GP 4000 S did not have flat issues in the rain last winter.

Typical Conti Quality
by Dalen
Cycling Enthusiast
Washington, Utah

I ride an average of 150 miles per week. Through the years I've ridden on many tires and brands. The new 5000 is great. First thing I noticed is the more "true to size". My 25mm 4000's always measured around 28-29 after mounted...which is fine with me actually. My rims have a 19mm internal measurement. The 5000 in size 25mm with the same rims now measures about 26mm. These tires are super smooth and stick fantastic on the fast descents which is confidence inspiring. There's probably never been an absolute perfect tire but this Conti comes close to the mark. I use it for just normal everyday riding. I don't race. However, I'm competitive and push myself on most rides. My last pair of Conti, the 4000, lasted just under 3,000 miles and I only flatted once from the notorious goat thorn. With the Conti's I always switch them out way before the wear indicators are gone. If you can get a set on sale I would say there's great value for your steed.

An earlier reviewer wrote: "Honestly, they need to bring back the 4000s. A group of three of us, ranging from 165 lbs to 190 lbs to 240 lbs have all ridden the 25s and the 28s. They wear out extremely fast, with pieces seemingly falling off some of them. They puncture more than any tires we've ever used. I'm a big Continental fan, I love the 4 Seasons tires and the 4000s were great. These, to me, are a pure, one day race tire. For average riding or training, they are terrible. One tire lasted about 200 miles before blowing out a sidewall - with no impact. Another hit its wear indicator at around 5 or 600 miles. "

I concur. I had really good luck with the 4000 series tires, but these tires are too fragile with chunks of rubber falling out. These tires are no good for training as they are too fragile. I would never trust these tires for racing with the chunks of rubber falling out. ( I used to train and race on the 4000s'.)

You know the script. GPs are great tires and the 5000 is the next iteration of this greatness. Shop around. Compare. Then get another set of GPs. They are a beast to get on the first time though...

by Anonymous

This is my first season trying the new GP 5000s as a summer tire and I'm very happy with the upgrade. The 25mm size measures around 25.6 at pressure which is great for fitting into a tight frame, and I got a little over 1,100 miles before a sidewall cut required a change. Other than that, these are great performers with improved puncture resistance over the GP 4000s -- no flats despite hitting a few unexpected glass patches in the road.

There is a lot of positive hype about this tire and tubeless overall. it does feel pretty fast but

it is tooo soft . Twice i have had gravel shards drive through a 5000 like no other tire I ve used.

The struggles with this tire cost me several rides this summer . They don t seem any faster than super sonics, turbo cottons, or vitorias to me and I ve had more trouble with them. Appropriate for race wheels

perhaps but sneaking away from work to get a flat 5000 3 times just stinks. I expect a new conti

train fast tire to come after they lose some business.

Even Better than the 4000's
by Stan

I bought these at a good sale price a few months ago and put them on last week when my 4000's were getting flats to easily. This is usually a sign to me that they needed replacing-about 3000 miles worth of wear.

The new tires were a tight fit on my DT Swiss carbon rims but the new bike tire tool, a Crank Brothers Speedier lever, lived up to its name. It made mounting the tubes much easier than putting on the 4000's , which was what led me to buying the new Crank Bros. tool in the first place. The tires look good on the bike and ride well with better grip on the turns than the previous ones. The ride is comfortable, too. I'm not sure I can tell if they have less rolling resistance. Obviously, I can't comment on longevity or flat resistance yet but usually have good luck with Continental products.

Try these tires. I think they are a good example of continuing product improvement by Continental.
