High performing. All-rounder. The GP5000.

Continental's Grand Prix 5000 Road Tire is a high-performing all-rounder road tire featuring even better versions of Black Chili tread compound and tear-resistant Vectran Breaker technology, as well as two new technologies: Lazer Grip and Active Comfort.

The GP5000's Lazer Grip technology delivers more cornering traction from day one - no break-in time required thanks to its micro profile structure that reach over the shoulder of the tire.

Smooth, grippy, not robust
by OaklandMark

I am a Conti fan, having settled in on the Grand Prix 4 Season tire as my go for many years, after trying several different brands. I got a new road bike a year ago, and thought I wold give the 5000's a try when the OEM tires gave way. Those were Specialized Turbo Pro's, and based on my previous experience with Specs, I thought they would be shot after 500 miles. In fact, I got 3150 out of the rear, and 4000 on the front!

Once I was fully on the 5000's I noticed 2 things right away - they are indeed smooth, fast, and grippy, but the sizing is a little questionable. I moved from being a 700x23 @120psi diehard, to 25's, and with the new bike, 28's running 75 psi F, 85 psi R. (I am 6'2", 180 lbs). If you're an old diehard skinny tire rider, do yourself a favor and try something different - easily just as fast, and waaaay more comfortable. When I mounted the 5000's it was immediately clear that although labelled 28's they were no bigger than 25's. So if you're looking for bigger tires, I would suggest going all the way to 32's - that's what I plan to do if these last long enough to be worth repeating.

The rear tire has 900+ miles on it now, and is showing considerable wear. Lots of cuts and nicks, with one fairly small cut having nicked a cord of the casing. By contrast, the Spec's had many more and deeper cuts, without a single injury to the casing. In fact on removal I saw that the sidewall had been cut along the radial line about 1" all the way to the casing, yet the tire performed flawlessly!

A word about rubber- these 5000's new out of box had noticeably less rubber on the wear surface than my 4000 mile worn Spec did!

If I can get 2000 miles flat free, I will consider another pair. The Specs went their entire life flat free, which is amazing. Plus they were a dream to ride.

Some reviewers commented on sidewall weakness. So far, no problems. Also, others say tires difficult to mount, but mine went on pretty easily, FYI. Lastly, I believe these are an improvement over the 4000's, as my experience with those was that they flatted like crazy.

Fast-Grippy-Simply Awesome!
by RobertNC
Charlotte, NC

I replaced some training tires on my old road bike with the GP5000 in 700x28c size and could notice an immediate improvement in ride quality, cornering and speed. My average speed on matched rides per Strava jumped 1-2 mph with the GP5000. Ok, maybe I'm just getting a little fitter or maybe the weather conditions are making a difference, but I put a second set in 700x25c on my TT bike yesterday. On a matched 22 mile ride from 2 days earlier that had much nicer weather (20 deg warmer and less wind) I was 0.5 mph faster with the GP5000 compared to the Spec. Mondo Pro in 700x21c. Plus I was able to crack into a leader board on a segment that was dominated by a club rider peloton and had another PR even with the brutal 15mph cross wind. Yes, they are hard to get on and off the rim. It requires tire levers and I would hate to be fixing a flat on the side of the road. But 500+ miles on the first set and no problems so far. I have swapped the tires from my road bike to a hybrid and back, so I'm even getting used to tight fit on the rims. My tire of choice now!

Spring has sprung so these go back into the rotation. Deep dish or shallow carbon "weekend" wheels with GP5000 and latex tubes are the best. Period.

Can't touch this tubeless. Just ask DKQS; they should know. Don't know how it gets better than this, but technology and materials are ever evolving. Conti is always cutting the path.

Legit replacement for the great GP4000
by Sam in Cincy
Cincinnati

These are actually fairly true to size, the previous GP4000's were way oversized.

The ride and handling feel the same as the GP4000's. I don't notice a difference in speed

Cant comment on flat protection and don't wish to jinx myself but should be the same or better.

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.

The Grand Prix 5000 Road Tire is a great tire. I've been using Continentals for years and have put thousands of miles on them.
by Tobster

Road cycling in south FL with ride lengths of 30 - 70 miles is typical for me now. Continental tires are smooth-rolling, dependable, and have a good grip on the road. I know what to expect out of them and it's the tire I look for when reordering.

Grippy and fast, but at least for me, tough to mount/unmount
by PSBiker
Cycling Enthusiast
Palm Springs, CA

I've lost track of the number of Continental tires I've owned. Quite a few 4000's followed by a couple of sets of 5000's. I rotate them every 1,000 miles, so between rotations and rare flats, I have a fair amount of experience mounting/unmounting these.

At some point a couple of years ago, I felt like it had become a lot harder to change tires. I figured that maybe I didn't have as much hand strength as I once had. But then I bought a new bike that came with Specialized Turbo Pro tires. When it came time to rotate, oh my gosh -- what a difference! The tires were actually easy to change! Now it could that my previous troubles were from some interaction between the Continentals and my Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels, but when it came time to replace the Turbo Pro's, I asked around and read reviews and noticed that I am by no means alone in having trouble with the Continentals.

So I'm going to try something else for my next set of tires. I may come back as I like the 5000's and was getting a couple thousand miles out of them, but I'm hoping that I can get easier maintenance and the same performance out of something else.

I've been using Continental tires for years....first the GP 4000, the GP 4000 - II, the 4 Seasons, the Gatorskins.....and now the GP 5000!

All great tires that are durable and reliable! I use the GP 5000's on both my Tarmac and Roubaix with excellent results.

So far so good
by Erik T
Gerrardstown, WV

If you have worn out tires just about any tire is an upgrade. These are certainly worth snagging when in the market. I've had no issues seating them on the wheel, they handle decent, and so far no flats. After a few rides I am a bit dubious of their life, but you can't have everything. I would consider these again if I get some miles out of these. If they wear quickly (as I fear) I'd probably go another direction for the money.

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.

I been using continental 4000S tires for a long time, Now that the 5000 came out I wanted to try them , and I am not disappointed , it feels fast and grippy just like the old one . If it is as durable as the 4000 I am a happy cyclist. Of course durability of any tire depends on the terrain and the weight of the rider, I am pretty light and I am lucky that most of the roads in my area are pretty smooth. The only downside is installing the tire for the first time can be difficult, it fit pretty snug. Tire lever are a most ,

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.

Just completed a 50 mile ride out to Corbett yesterday from Northeast Portland and hit a lot of glass but not a single flat because these tires are fantastic and not prone to flats.

I put at least 5000 miles a year on my bike and I've got a whole year with these tires and only one flat
