The best all-rounder in the field, brought to a whole new performance level. Ride faster, more comfortably and with increased puncture protection. Made to make you better.

It's been 14 years since the GP 4000 was first conceived. In that time it has had two updates and established itself as the undisputed best all-rounder in the field, creating an entire new performance level and benchmark for all other race clinchers to be tested against.

The new Grand Prix 5000 is not a facelift with a new hot patch/sticker, it is a new tyre from the ground up.

- 12% less rolling resistance than the 4000SII
- 20% boost in puncture protection
- 5g lighter than the 4000S II 700x25C

- BlackChili compound: It's all about how you mix it.
With a unique tread compound, which is produced only in Germany, BlackChili has revolutionised the sport of cycling. It's the answer to the eternal question of the best balance of grip and rolling resistance for cycling. Regular test wins confirm the measurable and noticeable advantages for the cyclist, established in the laboratory and on the road.
The latest polymers as well as specially developed carbon black particles and filler materials guarantee unique performance

- Active Comfort: The revolutionary approach in cycling.
Embedded in the tyre construction the Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations and smooths your ride.

- Lazer Grip, to make you one with the road. The lasered micro profile structure expands over the tyre's shoulder and provides outstanding cornering.

- Vectran: The benchmark in puncture protection.
Vectran is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran is spun from the 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 bicycle tyre 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.

- Handmade in Germany
- Constructed of 3 plies, totalling 330 TPI
- Weight: 220/250/295g (25/28/32c)
