Description

Your Daily Rider That Shows Up For The Races

The Continental Grand Prix 4 Season Road Tire is the winter racing and training tire you've been looking for. Fast enough for race day but won't leave you stranded at the side of the road. The GP4S is built tough for the grit, grime and debris-strewn reality of wintertime training.

The Grand P features a 330TPI double layer Vectran belt under the tread. This proprietary fabric is a liquid-crystalline polymer that is exceedingly strong and tear resistant yet manages to be extremely lightweight, making it ideal for racing.

Taking the Grand Prix 4 to the next level and beefing up reliability, Continental reinforced the sidewall with DuraSkin, a polyamide fabric that keeps road grit and grime from penetrating to the tube.

Features:

  • Versatile road tire works as a daily driver and shows up at the races
  • Double layer Vectran with DuraSkin sidewalls for puncture resistance
  • Fabric designed to keep harmful debris out of the inner tire
  • 700c folding bead clincher tire
  • 330 TPI
  • DuraSkin casing
  • Available in 700x23-32mm

  • B-Stock - This product has one or more B-Stock units available. These units can be purchased at a discount (see option select). B-Stock units were returned from other customers and may have missing or damaged packaging materials. These units are otherwise as new. The full manufacturer warranty applies.

    These are the best tires around

    Grand Prix 4-Season are highly resistant to flats, which is important to me because it is extremely difficult to remove tires from the Rolf wheels on our new tandem bike. Getting fewer flats is the best way to avoid that problem. The Grand Prix 4-Season may weigh a bit more than other tires, but the security of avoiding flats is the payoff.

    Get the Best,

    I am 83 and have been riding since the Truman administration. Now I ride 30 miles three times per week at speeds from 13 to 15 mph on a decent road bike. I am no expert on anything but I believe in trying to get the best when it comes to tires for obvious reasons. I have used this and other high end Continental tires for at least 15 years and never had a problem of any kind with the tires. This GP 4 Season sounded like it had the very best features for my particular riding style, safety over speed. In years past I have tried racing tires with no problem but did not notice any significant advantage and they don't last as long and do not give me the feeling of safety that I need. My opinion is if less weight is desired there are better ways to reduce weight than shaving a little weight off of the tires. I do care about speed but you can go a faster when you are not thinking about a fragile tire blowing out on you. I did have a blow out flat one time and it was coming down a steep hill and was able to bring it to a stop without spilling over. Just keeping calm and steady; I was never a really strong rider. I think my fastest ever long distance closed loop road ride was 18.5 mph average, but I can't even do 15 mph these days. Seriously, don't skimp on your tires and enjoy some serious riding at your own level. I am not against racing tires...they are just not for someone like me. One last thing, I take 18 seconds and check both tires before every ride. Although it is rare to find anything, I remove any little rock that is sticking to the tire. I am not an expert on tire technology; I just think the All Season sounded like the best for me, the safest most trouble free, a serious tire.

    Really Dependable & Safe

    I never have to worry about flats with this tire on what can often be unforgiving and urban roads here in NJ. You will sacrifice some speed relative to other options, but that�s not my focus for a northeast winter.

    goes the distance on the rear

    I'm 76, ride for distance, solo, 5000 miles per yr, lots of centuries.

    I used many, many different tires and have come to rely on the 4-Season as my go to REAR tire.

    I know this can be very subjective, but in my experience is this is the most reliable rear tire to get me home w/o flatting. Or worse, cutting/blowout. There are a lot of bad roads and debris out there.

    You will notice I specify rear. I have found different behavior/types of flats between front and rear, and use different tires on the front..

    For me, its the Goldilocks tire

    Im a 61 year old recreational cyclist. I ride about 20 miles a day during the week and enjoy rides of up to 60 miles on the weekend. Im not fast, I dont own a heart monitor and I dont use a power meter. I ride simply for the joy of it, so I choose my equipment to maximize that joy. I ride an endurance bike and I prefer tires that are quiet, comfortable and durable rather than fast and delicate. For what do, these tires are perfect. They slot in I rly between the GP5000 (faster, but not as durable) and the Gatorskin (more durable, but less comfortable and slower). I currently have these tires on two road bikes and will shortly put them on two hybrids (range of available sizes is another plus). The only two cautionary notes I have are 1) Conti tires all seem to run at last 1mm large - if your frame clearance is tight, beware of this - and 2) There is a black version of this tire and, while it may be my imagination, I think the black sidewall is stiffer than the natural one. Other than that, great tires!

    These Conti tires are outstanding

    I've used Continental road tires for years. I bought these to use on my gravel bike on a rails-to-trails path, which was a mix of crushed limestone and packed dirt. They were excellent. Plenty wide enough, but lightweight and easy rolling. And the puncture resistance proved effective, as I did not have any flats during the course of the 66-mile journey. And I'm still using them on recreational paths, both paved and gravel.

    Rarely flats

    I've been using Gator Skins for years. The name changes a bit sometimes, but these are basically Gator Skins with a little more flatting protection. That's why I use them! No one wants to get a flat, even if you're a Pro. I usually go for about 3000 miles before changing them and sometimes without getting even one flat! I just check to see if they look like they could use changing or 3000 miles, whichever comes first. They're not the lightest tires on the market but I'm not racing with them either. So all good!

    This is a terrific all round tire

    Been using the 4-Season for many years. They are durable, light, supple, and overall comfortable. Very puncture resistant. With the new 700 x 32 size I was able to bump up one of my bikes to be more "gravel friendly". Highly recommend the 4-Season.

    Maybe I just have bad luck

    I've been running Continental tires back to the Grand Prix 4000 days and always had good luck with them. Fast, grippy and very few punctures. I tried a set of 4-Seasons for winter riding and had several flats over the first month of using them. I switched back to the GP 5000s and am no longer having flat issues. Maybe I have bad luck or I ended up with a bad batch, but these tires just didn't work for me. It's my fault for straying from the GP 5000, which I think is the best tire out there. YMMV of course.

    Excellent Tires

    Balanced and Tough Spin without any wobble adjustment needed. I run 100 - 110 psi - hit potholes and rolled over gravel roads without any cuts or punctures.

    Stiff and Grip My average weight is 175lb - have never ran them at the 120 psi max. Feel rock hard at 110 and 100 perfect for commuting and night rides for those sneaky bumps and cracks in the road. The grip to the road is superior, instilling confidence to take turns as fast as you can handle.

    Highly recommend these tires and this company - Shipping was fast, (once order was processed) price matching was fast and easy, and the selection, reviews, testing, specs, videos, etc. allow you to research a deep a rabbit hole as you want. Will definitely order from y'all again.

    Great training tire for the off season

    I race on the GP4000SII5000 tires and enjoy the performance to weight ratio of those tires. They hold really well in corners and then during club rides they are super fun to descend on and fare really well against flats when compared to the performance provided. When the race season ended this last season I slapped a pair of these 4 Season 28's on the bike and have really enjoyed them. They can handle gravel and sand, they are almost bomb proof riding on roads with highway bits and pieces of metal, and they can be run at lower pressures to make those long training days a bit easier on the body. Rockysemi-paved trails that will occasionally cut the sidewalls of my GP4000SII's are easily handled with these tires.

    The one thing I do have to watch for, however, is the grip when descending. I've come loose in a couple of corners and drifted the back wheel at high speed riding them like the GP4000SII's, which is not the best feeling in the world. Totally my fault for pushing the tires beyond what they were designed to really handle, but I throw that out there as a word of caution to just take it a bit easier when on these tires and pointing the bike through some tight corners at high speed. There is necessarily a small drop off in handling when you are getting the durability built in to these wonderful, purpose built tires. I will definitely buy another pair when my current pair finally give up the ghost.

    Best Road Bike Tire

    I've yet to get a failure with this tire and I am on my second set. I change my tires roughly every 3,200 miles to be safe but could get substantially more had I wanted to. The 4000s kept getting sidewall failures so I gave up on them. The 4-Season is much more durable and gives an equivalent ride to the 4000s. I was told if durability is your main priority then go with the Gator Skins but if you want solid tires that delivers performance then the 4-Season is the best option. For added protection, I also suggest adding Stans sealant to your tubes and make sure they have removable cores. Careful not to remove the valve cores when taking off the pump nozzle like I did and got 2 ounces of sealant in my face. (Pumps with pressure release buttons will avoid this. )No flats since doing this in over a year and I now ride with peace of mind.
