    Comments about Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II Tire:

    As a tire connosieur, I am impressed with the ride of these tires. Riding them in the 25c size on a 23mm rim is awesome. They're very lightweight tires and these instantly took a solid half pound off my bike (I was on Challenge Strada Open tubulars before). These aren't as lively or comfortable as the proper open tubular, though. I think it has to do with the casing design. However, these are very fast, very responsive tires.

    I don't feel as confident for whatever reason with these through corners as the open tubulars. I think it might have to do with the casing. They certainly corner well and have great grip however. For whatever reason they just don't feel like they "carve" as well. Could be all in my head. I'm a 170lb guy running 90psi rear, 85psi front, and I've been experimenting with different pressures and found these to be the most pleasing. YMMV.

    My buddy cut these really bad on a shard of glass on a recent ride... so avoid glass with these tires. The rubber compound and casing work together in such a way to be a little less resistant to slicing but seem to be pretty puncture resistant otherwise. Still recommended if you're looking for a really great all-around tire!

    Comments about Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II Tire:

    I've been riding the 25c's for just over six months, and these things still have plenty of life left in them, not to mention they still bite great in the corners. As far as speed, I have raced these and concluded that these are very capable tires for just that. However, there are faster, lighter tires out there that lack the longevity of these. My one complaint with these is that they are on the pricey side. However, their life expectancy paired with their grip and lower weight justifies the price tag.

      Great tire. I switched from the Pro4 to this tire and am very pleased. Great road feel, fast with road hazard resistance. I have not had a flat yet! These tires are expensive but are worth it.
