High performing. All-rounder. The GP5000.

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.

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.

great tire but a little pricey unless you buy it on sale like I did
by Bill

I am a casual rider about 15 to 20 miles 4 or 5 times a week , always on the 4000s until I tried the 5000s . Great tire , a little smaller in size than the 4000s . Rode a little over 1000 miles but ran over piece of metal and cut one of them badly but still riding on it. Hoping it will last a little while longer.

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'.)

My new favorite
by GDS PDX

I really believe that tires are one of the most important components on your bike. Tires impact comfort, performance and safety. I probably replace tires much sooner than most people, because nothing feels as great as new rubber! This means that I have experimented with about a dozen tires so far, including vittoria, panaracer, specialized, and several from continental. Nothing beats a gatorskin for a super durable, yet relatively light and fast rolling all-purpose recreation and commute tire. Until recently, the venerable Grand Prix 4-seasons was my year-around training tire and I still use them for winter training when roads are dirtier and punctures are more inconvenient. But the 5000 is my new 3-season training/performance tire. They have great rolling resistance, excellent grip (especially on dry pavement, but also on wet) and are have a soft flexible tire bed to smooth the road and conform to its surface. I was surprised to see that they are actually not much lighter (about 10 grams) than the 4-seasons, but they faster and overall better. I have to say, their claims to offer more puncture resistance than a 4-seasons (I've even seen comparisons to a gatorskin!) have not borne out for me. But they are much more puncture resistant than other performance tires such as the 4000s. So I continue to keep a set of 4-seasons for November-March, but the rest of the year the 5000 is my new favorite.

Continental 5000 Road Tire

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.

Continental Still Can't Figure Out Side Wall Strength
by Jetdiesel

1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

I road ride 5-7K miles a year, 6ft 205#. I've ridden Michelins, Vredesteins, Continentals, etc. I have a history with Continentals of side wall gashes, and have sworn them off numerous times. I had heard good things about the GP 5000's so thought I'd given them another look. These GP5000's are supple and hold the road well, especially on high speed descents. Fairly good at flat resistance too. Ultimately, I got 2700 miles out of the rear tire before tread wear was evident and ultimately the tire failed on a side wall nick on pavement, by just clipping a rock on the road shoulder. Ironically I was going to retire the tire at the end of the ride in question. The front failed with a side wall gash, also on pavement at 2100 miles. While I like the tire & I got reasonably good mileage out of the rear in particular. The fact that side wall gashes ended both tires lives, leaves me looking for alternatives. I have never, that I can recall, ever gotten a side wall gash that ruined any other tire, except Continentals.

Switched to the 4000 a couple years ago and have used them since. Lighter faster tire. You'll notice the difference right off the bat. For your everyday recreatonal rider these will do the trick. We usually ride at least 3 times a week and about 30 to 40 miles per ride. No problems so far.

Long lasting and great grip on the road.

really like the tread pattern on these tires and they are great in in wet weather, they can be a challenge to put on but if you leave them in the sun or in the a bucket of hot water it will make them easier to put on, make sure to put the on with arrow facing forward.

Even Better than the 4000's
by Stan
Cycling Enthusiast
6 of 9 customers found this review helpful.

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.

Best all-round tire
by Topcat
Cycling Enthusiast
Lincoln, Nebraska

Light, supple, grippy, surprisingly durable, easy to mount. Replaced the stock tires with these and increased my average speed by a bit more than 1 MPH. Expected these to be a bit tight, but they mounted easily without tools, and the bead seats firm. I had my first flat after 3,000 miles. On-the-road repair was fastest ever. Single lever was all I needed. Tread-wear indicator is a nice feature. Ordered another set on sale to have in reserve. Good-looking, too! Highly recommended.

Great ride quality, excellent long distance choice
by jedi767
Cycling Enthusiast

Only about 500 miles on a set of these but fantastic ride quality, and my perception is good rolling resistance as well. Too soon to judge wear/durability but no flats so far. Used almost daily on long distance recreational riding, and occasional commutes over decent quality roads. Hard to beat for overall performance.

Confident Ride, but...
by Chris
Bentonville, AR

I was a long time gatorskin rider and switched when I transitioned to carbon rims. They deliver the grip and speed I appreciate. The downside is I have noticed a large uptick in sidewall damage. The kind where your tube may poke thru. I think it is the performance trade off vs. the gatorskins.
