Taking the fantastic road performance of the GP4000 tire and making it even better, this Grand Prix 5000 model utilizes modern tire technology to deliver their best road tire yet. Constructed from Continental's legendary BlackChili compound, unparalleled grip and balance is assured, with strenuous lab and road testing showing tangible advantages to the modern cyclist.
Ultra-Performance Road Race Tires
Equipped with other stunning advances including it's impact-absorbing Active Comfort build, a Lazer Grip micro profile along the outer edge for improved cornering grip and Vectran Breaker puncture protection - performance, rolling and reliability is taken to new levels by this unrivaled update.
Sealing Effectiveness and Reliability
The LifeLine Tubeless Tire Sealant is a top of the range tubeless application that can effectively seal holes and gashes in the tire up to 5mm. This unique sealant features a blend of a DuPont Kevlar additive for additional sealing effectiveness and reliability. This fast-acting sealant is nontoxic, will not freeze or boil (tested to -17°C and +45°C) and is fully compatible with alloy, steel and composite wheel/rim constructions.
BlackChili Compound: Continental refines newly developed synthetic rubbers with natural rubber with the proven high-performance tread compound. The GP5000 uses these rubbers with special nanometric carbon soot particles, which are optimized in shape and surface properties for best uses for the intended tire. Tires with BlackChili Compound reach an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tires have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30% higher friction value (grip) and a 5% increase in mileage.
Vectran Breaker: Vectran is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fiber from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran is spun from melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Spider silk, like Vectran, has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight – exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bike tire as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.
Active Comfort Technology: The revolutionary approach in cycling. Embedded in the tire construction the Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations and smoothens your ride.
Lazer Grip: Lazer Grip, to make you one with the road. The lasered micro profile structure expands over the tire’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering.
