Level-up your ride with Continental's Grand Prix 5000 Road Tire, 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.

Lazer Grip technology delivers more cornering traction from day one -‒ no break-in time required ‒- thanks to its micro profile structure ‒- little laser-drilled holes ‒- that reach over the shoulder of the tire. Integrated into the 3-ply/330tpi casing, Active Comfort technology provides stiffness in the sidewall and flexibility under the tread for greater vibration dampening and excellent ride comfort.

  • All-rounder & high-performance.
  • Active Comfort & Lazer Grip technologies.
  • Black Chili tread compound.
  • Vectran Breaker puncture protection.
  • Foldable bead.

great tires

Been riding the 5000s (regular version) for a couple weeks now and have a few hundred miles on them. 23mm in front, 25mm in rear, latex tubes. I'm 145lbs. I've gotten to do a lot of varied riding on them, including a very wet and rainy crit and gravel. IMO they are excellent tires.

I used to be a die hard Veloflex fan. I rode them for many years for the ride quality. I switched over to GP4000s because they wore better and rolled fast. I could tell they weren't as supple as the Veloflex but I was tired of how easily they cut. I was really excited to try the Michelin Power Competitions, but those were a failure for me. They roll fast and feel good but I got bad sidewall cuts that ruined the tires and made them unrepairable. Bad luck I suppose. I also tried some Vittoria Corsa G for a time, because I got a deal on them. They are okay. They are pretty durable for a supple tire, but they don't really ride that great for me. Not sure why. They definitely don't ride as nicely as the Veloflex. In any case, the 5000s are undeniably fast and IMO feel better than the 4000s, and better than any of the other tires I've mentioned above save for the Veloflex. I haven't ridden them for a few years now so can't really do a direct comparison but the 5000s feel close.

I have used Continental Grand Prix 4000 tires on all my bikes since they were first released and I did not think a better road tire could be produced. When I saw that the Grand Prix 5000 was being released, I ordered a pair the same day. The new tire is incredible and has lived up the the claims of faster, more comfortable, and more grip. I am impressed with the improvements.

Great tire, but expensive.
by dmanthree

I have this tire mounted on a Fulcrum Racing 3db and it's a really nice combination. Ride, handling, rolling are all top notch. Expensive, but worth it. Can't speak to durability yet since I only have a few hundred miles on them.

I bought a pair of these when they first became available last week. I've only got 100 miles or so on them, so the jury is still out, but so far they seem at least as nice as the last version - GP4000S2.

I've been riding long enough to have used every generation since the GP2000. Continental has always had a strong contender in the high-end clincher road tire market. Since the introduction of the GP4000, they have pretty much dominated this segment. The GP4000 S2 was, or is, the tire of choice for the majority of riders in my bike club.

With each generation, Continental has made improvements in wear, flat protection, and ride quality. I'm looking forward to seeing how much better this new tire is compared to the old one, but I'll be really surprised if it isn't a noticeable upgrade.

As a huge long time fan of the 4000S2 I am so excited to have the new Grand Prix 5000.

The quality looks fantastic, and while I have only done a short ride on them so far, the early feeling is that this tire is fast and grippy. Can't wait to put more miles on them!

Excellent grip in the wet
by Dane

After a week of riding this tire-and getting caught in the rain-I have to say I am very impressed. Not sure how Continental managed to improve on the 4000, which I've been a fan of for years, but these tires have noticeably more grip than other tires I've tried. Even while descending in the rain I was able to rail the corners with confidence. They also felt a bit faster on dry flats roads as well, but that's a subjective. I can't speak on durability or flat protection yet, but as an improved version of the 4000, I don't think either of those will be an issue.

Conti does it again

Another awesome performance road tire from Continental. I've been a real fan of the GP4000 S2. There really hasn't been anything else that was really as good for performance road cycling. For a tire that grips and rides as well as the GP4000, it is surprisingly durable and resistant to flats.

Based on my admittedly limited experience with the GP5000 so far, it seems at least as good and probably better. Nice and grippy even on cold, wet roads. And it looks like it's going to be available in 700x32 which I'm really looking forward to for my endurance bike.

Not as good as 4000SII Tire
by Anonymous
Competitive Racer
5 of 7 customers found this review helpful.

4000SII was perfect tire. Meaty tread, performance and low puncture risk if you looked after them. Within last year had one with defective tread? The new 5000 has lower rolling resistance, but due to the narrower sizing it is impossible to mount on super wide rim by hand, even with knowing the tricks and 25 years mounting tires. Really annoying!! And if you are a weight weenie, 5000 is heavier despite marketing. 5000 better choice for TT application than everyday use.

Im a long time fan of the 4000s, fast and great puncture protection. When I got a set of 5000s I had 3 flats in 3 rides, both tires are now useless, I swapped back to 4000s. The weight savings came as a result of less puncture protection and narrower. Only positive I see with them is they look great

The good news is that the lab review below says the rolling resistance may be better (less) than claimed. The bad news is that the improved puncture resistance claim appears to be false. The weight savings appears due in large part to Continental making the tires smaller. This means that if you want to go up a size, youll need to go two sizes larger, and if you want to just stay the same size youll need to go up a size. This was my experience. I went up a size and the tire width is the same size as the 4000 II I replaced. httpswww.bicyclerollingresistance.comroad-bike-reviewscontinental-grand-prix-5000-2018

Review for Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II 700c Road Tire
2 of 2 customers found this review helpful.

I have been using GP4000 tires since their introduction, for a total of somewhere in excess of 25000 miles. They are tough, light, and terrific at cornering in all road conditions. I generally get about 3000 miles out of a set of these tires before the wear dimples disappear. This riding over largely chipseal roads. The only problem with these tires has been pointed out by a few reviewers, has to do with the sidewalls being somewhat fragile. I have only had to throw away one tire due to a sidewall puncture. It was upsetting due to it being a brand new tire, but I doubt that any tire would have survived that particular road hazard. I consider these to be about the toughest tire out there. I will continue to use them as long as they are available.
