CONTINENTAL Grand Prix 5000 TL Tubeless Tyre
|Options||700 x 25c Black In Stock|
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.
With the standard GP5000 already improving on the previous GP4000 S II model by 12% in rolling resistance, 20% in puncture resistance and at a reduced weight by 10g (700x25c model), the GP5000 TL (tubeless) further improves on this:
- 5% better rolling resistance (speed) than standard GP5000
- 5% more puncture protection
- Tubeless: The user-optimised Tubeless System.
The TL technology is specifically designed to offer Tubeless for road cycling demands. Easy to install and reliable in use. Specifically developed the Tubeless bead seals through its unique shape and provides stable fitting on the rim. Being tubeless rather than tubeless ready, the GP5000 TL provides a much better seal and doesn't need as much sealant to seal. The tyre will actually seal without sealant but it please do use it! After all the sealant will help guard against punctures.
- 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: 300/340/380g (25/28/32c)
