Continental Grand Prix 4000 Tire

The Grand Prix 4000 works on every road surface, transforming the demands of different styles of riding and supplies extremely long-term performance. It also achieves expectations in precision and production quality. The new reference standard for racing tyres. The new puncture resistance, The all new Vectran breaker belt, developed and patented by Continental, surpasses even the famous puncture resistance of the former leader in this category, the GP3000. The extremely strong Vectran fabrics are more flexible and lighter than all other puncture protection materials. Vectran offers more resistance to cuts than Aramid, is five times as strong as steel and features less weight than a nylon double breaker. It also maintains strength in the wet

Compound

The advanced Activated Silica Compound (ASC) increases the handling threshold for even safer, yet faster, cornering and reduces the rolling resistance of the Grand Prix 4000. A new anti-cracking formula prevents UV light from damaging the compound and increases the mileage performance.

Tread

Features new tread wear indicators to help riders gauge the life of their GP4000 tyre. On the one hand you dont lose mileage performance by prematurely replacing the tyre and on the other you dont risk safety by using the tyre beyond its tread service life

Features

  • Uses Vectran fiber which is extremely resistant to cuts and tears
  • Symmetrical tread pattern, shifted to shoulder of tire for increased traction
  • Uses updated Activated Silica Compound (ASC) for improved handling in extreme conditions and lower rolling resistance
  • Published weight 205 grams

    Great and fast for my tri bike, too

    By Crash47

    Pros

    • Fast Rolling
    • Grip In The Wet
    • Rubber compound

    Cons

    • Holds Road Debris

    Best Uses

      Comments about Continental Grand Prix 4000 Tire:

      Use these as my race triathlon tires. These grip the road and roll fast- even in the wet 'rainforest' where I live.
      Only downside of the awesome rubber compound is that it picks up small pebbles and such and holds them in more than other tires.

      • Not cheap

      Best Uses

        Comments about Continental Grand Prix 4000 Tire:

        I'm on my fourth pair of these tires now, and I will gladly buy another. They offer a pretty exceptional balance between performance and durability-- easily a 2k+ mile tire (if you rotate them) with very good flat protection that corners and grips like a race tire. I'd say these provide 80% the durability of a Conti Gatorskin (the toughest I have ever used) and 80% of the grip and feel of a Vittoria Open Corsa CX (the most supple I have ever used). For me, this is a winning combination of performance, confidence, and value. I highly recommend these.

        I ride an average of 50 miles at a time and I noticed a big diffrence in the ride and adsourbing the small bumps in the road. Jenson USA pricematched this product for me. Now they lowered the price for future customers. Now that's great customer service. Thanks again Jenson

          I have ridden on quite a few tires and this tire is the best yet! The other tires were a different compound and didn't last..these last twice as long! I feel like I am not riding on anything!

          Love 'em

          Comments about Continental Grand Prix 4000 Tire:

          I have used these tires for everything from long-haul rides to crits, and I love 'em. I find that they strike the perfect balance between supple, sticky handling and longevity. Neither so hard as to increase road noise and corner poorly, nor so soft as to get chewed up by debris. With rotation, I have gotten 3k miles out of a pair, which makes them a good value as well. Highly recommended.

            I've had these tires for about 6 weeks, so have only put <200 miles on them, but they are the best I've used. They ride fast and smooth, yet are soft and grippy, too. All the good reviews seem to hold true and they are well worth the extra expense.

              • Good roller

              Cons

              • Little pricey

              Best Uses

                Comments about Continental Grand Prix 4000 Tire:

                Although a little pricey, this is the best clincher tire I ever ridden. It rolls really well, and even in tight curves it feels really safe.

                Other tires I tried are Michelin Pro Race 3 and one or two kenda.
