The renowned Continental Grand Prix is easily the most respected road clincher in cycling. Known for its extremely long wear, the Grand Prix is a staple training and racing tire for all cyclists, from weekend warriors to world champions.

The Grand Prix is available in 700c x 23mm (23-622 ISO) in either folding and wire bead versions. 120 PSI Max. 230 grams (folding); 280 grams (wire bead).

Oldie but a Goodie.

This tire has been around for ever, but don't let its old age fool you. This screamer was at the top of the podium not to long ago. Great rolling resistance and a formidable amount of grip keep this classic competitive with some of today's fastest tires. If you are trying to get that classic look, or save a few bucks with out sacrificing performance this is the tire. So you might ask, was the Grand Prix just a tire that was ahead of its time? I think so, and maybe its even got a few years of glory left.

Tires perform as well as tires that cost twice their price.

I have logged a little over 1000 miles on these tires and they are great! Low price, roll smooth, competitive weight (mine weighted 232 grams for 23mm), corner well, no flats yet, easy to install. I really like that they have wear indicator too.

Not sure if these are pure race tires, but for the cyclosportive or grand fondo crowd it's hard to beat these tires.

Excellent Service

Great feel and low rolling resistance to the Grand Prix. Sidewall is weak resulting in blowouts and cuts. Great service from BTD!!!!

Smooth roller!

These tires were a very nice upgrade from my old set that came with my roadbike. I don't ride in the wet so, I can't provide any feedback on wet grip but they hold up very well even on the smoothest of bike trails. A bit pricey (for me) but if they continue to perform I'll stick with them when it's time to replace.

Nice ride, seem to wear out rather quickly

I have not used these tires long enough to offer a fair assessment. I've only put about 400 miles on them, rainy season, not too much riding so far this year. Value wise, probably hard to beat. I find there is always a trade off with tires. Some last forever but are harsh riding. Tires that ride nice use a softer rubber compound and wear out faster. I used to use Conti Ultra 2000's, which they stopped making. The Grand Prix is probably one notch up, but I don't think they will last as long. If I can squeeze 1000 miles out of these tires I will be happy. Quality wise they are top rate tires. a tad difficult to mount. I'm not really loyal to a brand of tire, I usually buy what is on sale. But next around around I will probably order these. Mainly they ride great on my lousy chip sealed roads.

More durable at a better price than the 4000s.

After years of riding continental 4000s, I found the Grand Prix to be more durable at a better price with indistinguishable performance. The extra longevity of this tire is well worth the slight difference in weight over the lighter 4000.

Great all-around tire!

Great tire! Ridden in the northwest, lots of rain, lots of dirty roads. Used for training, a little bit of racing, and tons of commuting. Never had any cuts or slices to the casing. Never had any punctures due to road debris.

watch out for the wire bead

I just got these tires and they seem fine so far, but I wanted to warn others about the wire bead vs the folding bead. I bought the wire bead first, as they are about [$] per tire cheaper, but could not get them installed on my Mavic Ksyzium rims without pinching the tube. They were extremely tight and difficult to get over the rim. After several hours and many patches, I gave up and sent them back to BTD and exchanged them for the folding bead. The folding beads installed easily and I am now riding on them. Not enough time or miles for a thorough review yet. I replaced Continental 4000S tires with these, and they seem to work just as well, and will hopefully last longer and be puncture resistant. I think they will be a good tire for the money. At least on certain rims, beware the wire bead. Because of having to spend the money to return the wire bead tires, it lowered my Value Rating.

My experience with the Continental Grand Prix

There is nothing not to like about this tire.. I have used several other brands and to date this is my favorite. They out last all the others I have used in the past. They also give my bike a better look on the Comic's.

Excellent tire! Goes on tight but runs smooth

Use for Commuting and Weekend rides. So far, I'm extremely pleased with the performance of these tires. On par with Gatorskins, but more supple on the road. I usually put in about 4K a year, so I'm very interested to see how they hold up for the rest of the year.

Best value in Continental's Grand Prix Line

This is essentially the same tire as the 4000S, same casing, same rubber, but two not one layer of continentals puncture protection strip. So if you can tolerate 25 grams more rubber and puncture protections this is the tire for you. Save yourself a few buck and go with this one. I weight 170 and get the best ride feel with a 23 mm front and 25 mm back both inflated to 100 psi on 21mm internal with rims.

Good training tire.

I picked up a pair of these to try as a daily training tire. I generally like continental products, but didn't want to always use my expensive tires for daily training. These have fit the bill nicely. Good wear and puncture resistance. I did get the 25 mm versions and have really liked those. So far they have held up great for about 1000 miles of use. I have only had one puncture and it was a pinch flat as I hit a hole in the road that was hidden in the shadow of a tree. So, not really a fault with the tire, just my own fault.

Good durable tire but difficult to change

To be fair, I was looking for a not-very-expensive tire that wore fairly well. The tire fit the bill. I've ridden on it for the rear wheel for 1500 miles and it wears well. However, since it's a wire bead, changing the tire onto the rim is difficult to say the least. I've changed many tires, and this was one of the most difficult to put on the rim. I'll not buy a wire bead tire again.

Great tire. Great price.

These tire are replacing my old Gatorskins. I tend to wear tires out quicker than average so I decided to go with a less expense tire. So far, I am really happy with the choice. No flats and a nice ride.
