Tires might be an afterthought to most but they have a major impact on your bike's ride quality and efficiency. Tires can be designed for different functions. Some tires are built for long distance and puncture protection, and some tires are built for racing. The Continental Grand Prix 5000 Road Tire is one of the best allrounder tires which allows riders to ride faster, and the tire is more comfortable and with increased puncture protection. It features BlackChili which is a tread compound that balances grip and rolling resistance. Vectran is the puncture protection inside the tire that is more flexible and protects more effectively.

Better performance than the already good Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II. A little faster. Rolls into corners more smoothly due to a rounder cross section. If it wears as well as its predecessor it will be the tire to get.
My tire of choice was the Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II. I could ride for thousands of miles without any mishap and they were a fast-rolling, grippy tire. But every once in a while I would have bad luck, like a sidewall cut on a brand new tire, first ride, straight out of the box. I'm happy to say that I just finished 2 weeks of riding on the new GP 5000s with no flats. Success! I hope I haven't jinxed myself for the next ride. Also, the Black Chili compound smells delicious, and can be paired with an IPA or your favorite American-style lager.
