GP5000: The Gold-Standard For Road Tires

The Continental Grand Prix 5000 is a worthy successor to the beloved Grand Prix 4000 S II road tire, which reigned over the road-clincher bicycle tire market for over ten years. As you can imagine, creating a better version than the GP4000 was not a simple task, but Conti did it.

The new Grand Prix 5000s are high-performing all-rounders 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 German tire manufacturer focused specifically on the two problematic areas of the GP4000s — cornering grip and puncture protection. With their added tech in both these departments, the GP5000 rises above all other comparable clinchers.

The Vectran Breaker puncture protection is lighter, is more flexible, and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker used in previous models. Like spider silk, Vectran is an extremely strong and lightweight synthetic material, woven tightly into a multi-strand barrier.

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

Integrated into the 3-ply/330tpi casing of the Grand Prix 5000, Active Comfort technology provides stiffness in the sidewall and flexibility under the tread for greater vibration dampening and excellent ride comfort.

Grand Prix Family

The standard GP5K is only the beginning of the possibilities. If you want a tubeless version, or need hookless compatibility, check out the S TR or AS TR for all-season grip and durability. If you're after pure speed, only the TT TR will do.

Still the gold standard

I still haven't gone tubeless for road tires and GP5000s have been my go-to tires for years. I've occasionally tried something else only to be disappointed in durability and/or cut resistance.

My go-to road tires
by Bill
Holly Springs, GA

Continentals have always been my go-to for clincher tires. I�ve never had. Conti flat, ever.

They wear well, I get thousands of miles from a set.

Having praised them (which they deserve) I hate having to mount new ones onto Campagnolo wheels.

Continental rolls out quality
by Grout

GP 5000 tires are my go to tire.

Lately my purchases are 30 and 32 mm both used for road riding.

They seem to me no different in speed vs a 25mm tire. Granted nothing to prove this.

On really poor surfaces the 32mm at lower pressure allow you to hold your speed better.

I find my rear tire wears a little faster so I buy in 3s vs by the pair.

I've been using these tires for training and racing, and I've had excellent results in various situations - from chip to asphalt to cement, very straight or technical courses. They feel secure in the turns, and are extremely comfortable even in long rides >100mi.

These are nice tires
by Conti Fan

Circle Pines, MN

I have the 700x32. I have them on an old Surly Pacer (Fatties Fit Fine). It is funny that back then this was a HUGE tire. I dont have much experience on wet roads but really nice on dry roads, I am getting the same tire on me new bike (tubeless). I have not tried a lot of different tires so it is hard for me to compare to others.

The best.....so far

Absolutely the best brand and model Conti has for road bikes. I have run a variation of the GP for about two decades! They should tell you something. The bad reviews for flats and sidewall issues have me perplexed a bit. I am not saying there can't be a few bad ones that get by, but I really wonder if it is a road quality issue or improperly mounted by the rider. I ride some junk roads on daily routes too, and knock on wood, no issues like I had with Michelin tires I use to run. These 5000's are truly a race tire and very durable. I even have a daily section of over a football field length of gravel to reach the black top and no issues. Go get yourself a set and those who think the tire is bad that have used them.....check what your roads are like or get them mounted professionally then reassess. If you do in fact have rough roads you may need a gravel bike instead!

After doing the tubless scenario I went back to my roots a roll with clichers again. If you run 80+ psi. on your setup you won't be disappointed. Much better tread-life than most. 3,000+ miles is about my average before having to replace them. BTW, they Roll Fast Too!

Absolutely the best RT

I have been running Conti GP's for almost two decades and keep moving with the nomenclature progression. They are very much puncture resistant, light, very sticky for cornering, and a real value for a German made tire for pro racing standards. Unless QC goes out the window or I am given a competitor tire to try to formulate feedback, I will not vacate using this tire. I run a 700 x 25 sizing on a set of full carbon Spinergy wheels that are 32 mm deep with a Hadley Ti Racing hub. If you have not ridden these and are looking for a new manufacturer, give them a try.

Sweet Spot Road Tire
by Dave Wright
Cycling Enthusiast
Upstate SC
5 of 5 customers found this review helpful.

Continental hit the exact sweet spot with the 5000. Perfect mix of speed and flat resistance. Excellent cornering grip too. I use the 32mm size on both my road bike and gravel bike's road wheelset. Have worn out 25mm and 28mm similar Conti 4000s as well, and strongly recommend the 32mm width if your bike can take it. The lower pressure greatly & noticeably improves comfort, traction, and tread life. For the occasional fast smooth pavement ride you can pressure them up to be same or lower rolling resistance as thinner tires. I suppose their extra width adds wind resistance, but if that makes a statistically provable difference in your riding then no worries because your team mechanic is wrangling your gear anyway. My only qualification on the 5000 is that it should only see minimal gravel use. I ruined the sidewall on a rear tire one time.

The tire I love and hate
by Anonymous

I am a Conti GP5000 devotee and have been for years. They get consistently great reviews, roll fast and feel very comfortable on the road. They also look great. That said, you have to have the correct wheel/tire combination for them or you will suffer as they run tight. Had to cut one off and there have been plenty where no amount of manipulation could get my tire lever under the tire bead even having the whole tire down in the center channel. These were supposed to be my tires for life but they disappointed and I've moved on. My bike shop guy who's been in business for years told me that Conti's main business is car and truck tires, not bike tires. Therefore the R&D just isn't there as opposed to a company like Vittoria which only makes bike tires. It was because of the Conti's that I bought longer vinyl coated steel tire levers because they were the only levers with which I could get the last bit of bead over the tire rim and do so without breaking the lever. Getting stuck on the road because I can't change an inner tube is unacceptable.

I like how easy it mounts (slips) on to the rim. I had many other tires before and they were a pain to put on.

I even had to go see a bike shop mechanic to force other tires than the Contintal Grand Prix 5000 on the wheel.
