Continental Grand Prix 4-Season Special Edition Black

Continental's tough Grand Prix 4-Season is even tougher with the addition of the Vectran™ anti-puncture breaker. This all-year training and road racing tire offers the ultimate combination of speed, low weight, and all-weather performance, combined with excellent puncture and sidewall protection.

The stealth, special edition black casing is equipped with DuraSkin sidewall reinforcement for protection against cuts and abrasion. The Vectran breaker wards off flats but is also supple for less rolling resistance and greater comfort than other puncture-resistant barriers.

Features:

  • Double layer Vectran with DuraSkin sidewalls
  • Kevlar beaded folding tire.
  • 430 TPI.
  • Max inflation pressure 120/120/115 psi for 700c x 23/25/28/32mm size tires (622 ISO).
  • Weight is 220/230/250 grams.
  • Similar durability to the ever-popular Continental Gatorskin, but with added performance

  • B-Stock - This product has one or more B-Stock units available. These units can be purchased at a discount (see option select).

    Best Tire for Me

    Already reviewed the 28mm. These are excellent, durable tires without the rock hard feel of Gatorskins. I rode 1000s miles over 18 months without a single puncture on very messy urban roads where multiple punctures per ride are the norm, as well as a lot of time on the turbo trainer. Rear tire finally retired due to a small sidewall gash that I booted to get home. Could've kept using it but decided to upgrade to 32mm.

    32mm just give a bit more comfort with lower pressure.

    All black version is slightly darker sidewall then the regular ones that have an almost imperceptible burgundy tint.

    My First Contis - Love em

    I've been running these in 32mm on my trek domane 'gravel' for the last couple months and loving them. Was previously running Schwalbe G-one Allrounds 35mm (tubed), but I just wasn't riding that much real gravel, so wanted something more road-oriented and quicker but still comfortable.

    I've put about 800mi on them since early October and have had no issues so far, and the tires show hardly any signs of wear (re wear, they seem to be much long-lasting than the g-ones - as a point of comparison, I wore though the rear tire tread in 1300mi on my old g-ones...). Also I'd say I'm about 0.5mph-1mph faster on avg. on these vs. the g-ones. Haven't yet tried the GP4000s or 5000s but I think those would be a bit quicker but less durable. Was hesitant at first to take these tires on dirt paths (towpaths, well maintained dirt roads) near me, but have since ridden them multiple times and felt sturdy and fast, more so than I was expecting. They also handle sections of pretty rough pavement near me well. Overall, a strong, grippy, and versatile tire, esp in 32mm (curious to try 28s in the future). And the black edition looks dope, in my opinion. Very happy with the contis so far, my first experience with the brand - would buy again.

    Well constructed tire with confidence building bead and tread.

    I was able to mount these 700x28 tires on my deep carbon rims, which I was unable to accomplish with other tires. They have low rolling resistance and excellent traction on all surfaces. So far, no punctures over a variety of road surfaces and conditions. I have confidence in these tires.

    Great tandem tire!

    Co motion Tandem carries around 350 pounds including bike weight. Replaced original conti gatorskins which flatted twice while new. Then self de-rimmed at slow speed. New 4-Seasons, both wheels trouble free. No flats since mounting. Handles well and a confident grip on scary heavy tandem decending. New Mexico varies hot to below freezing roads. Performs on tandem as expected. Worth it!

    Excellent in many ways

    After trying many other tires I finally discovered the best of 'em all. This is a durable, long lasting tire. I get thousands of miles out of these tires and very few flats. It fits the rims nicely, so it is less effort when taking them off and putting them back on. Great cornering and tracking, even on wet pavement. I ride 25's and the drag is not noticeable if there is one. My air pressure is 100 psi. My opinion is this is the best tire out there.

    Awesome tires

    What can you say, they're Conti 4 Seasons. Ran the 28mm version of these tires for 1000s of miles without a flat (and ride though plenty of glass, wires and nasty bits).

    They seem to provide similar protection to the Gatorskins but way more supple/lower weight.

    Continental Tires have served me well racing and training for 35 years

    These tires are great for training. They wear very well and handle in good and bad weather. I usually get 3 years out of a set of Continental tires. I average 12 thousand miles a year. I'm a light rider weighing between 128 and 130 lbs. The last set I went 3 years without a single flat. A lot of the roads in southwestern Ohio and Indiana are not the greatest either.

    I highly recommend these tires.

    great lighter long lasting trainingendurance tire

    My main concern with tires is flats. I just don't want to deal with them. So for years I used Schwable Marathon Plus 32mm tires on my Salsa La Cruz. I use the bike for commuting into Portland (55 miles round trip) and for touring (a few tours each summer of about 300 miles each). I knew the Schwalbes were heavy but didn't care since I never got flats. That is, unless the 95 mile mark in the 2018 Oregon Gran Fondo. It turns out that the inside of the tire casing was defective and a little wire from the casing was poking into the inner tube. I suspect it wasn't an issue before because I typically ran the tires a bit low, but on the day of the Gran Fondo, I pumped them up to the max PSI. It was really a pain to fix (I had to use a worn piece of gravel to grind the frayed wire down and still ended up pumping the tire up to the minimum inflation to complete the ride). After that mess, I swore I'd switch to a folding tire.

    I looked around for a folding tire with similar puncture resistance and came upon the Grand Prix 4-season. I have over 3,000 miles on them and have just reached the point where I need to replace the rear tire (trust be told I probably should have replaced it about 500 miles ago). The front will probably be good for another thousand miles or so. And so far, ZERO FLATS! As a side benefit, they are much lighter than the Schwalbes and it's very noticeable. The bike is much snappier from a standstill and much faster on the steeper (and longer) hills.

    my favorite rear tire

    My history for rear flats is appalling. This is my latest attempt at mitigation..

    It has turned out quite well. 2100 miles w no rear flats. This is very good for me and includes removing a staple from the rear tread after one ride wo a problem.

    On the downside I blew out a front at 500 miles w a sidewall cut.

    Now riding w Michelin Power Protection on the front (always been good on the front) and Conti 4-Season on the rear and having very good results. I do 100 mile rides (3 last week) so tire reliability is a big deal for me.

    It's not scientific, but I haven't ever had better results.

    My Flats Stopped When I Got These!

    When I got my new Trek Domane, it came with 32s which I just wasn't ready to go to. I had always run Continental GP 4000S IIs - 23s or 25s, and I saw they made 28s in that tire also, so I got those. I loved the softness of the wider tire and lower air pressure, but I got 4 flats within 200 miles. All goatheads. I lost confidence in the ability of those tires to fend off a couple teeny tiny goatheads, so I went with these 4 Seasons. So far, 300 more miles on the same roads, zero flats. They are a hair stiffer, but I'll take the stronger durability. The black edition was a little splurge but does look better with my partly black bike.

    Extended mileage and resistant to flats

    I have been road biking for many years, completing many centuries. I get more miles out of this tire than any other I have tried. I have less flats, too. The grip is good on wet pavement and cornering is excellent. Great traction. I use the 25's.

    Good Flat Protection with Lower Rolling Resistance

    Perfect rear tire on my new Cannondale Super Six for rough roads, chip seal, debris. Much lighter than my previous go-to, Gatorskins. Great bridge between training and racing tires. More expensive, but worth it.

    Conti Grand Prix 4-season

    Love these tires. My go to as I feel safe in any riding condition. They grip the road well and stick well when cornering. I usually wait until they go on sale but well worth the price if you have to buy at regular selling price. I used to ride Gator Skins (which are great all purpose tires) but now I only ride the 4-seasons.

    Continental makes great tires

    I couldn't decide between these or Gatorskins, but I like the all-black look. I had to replace one destroyed by a piece of metal that would have taken out any tire short of a Schwalbe Marathon. The Marathons are like truck tires, so the Conti's are a much better compromise between toughness and performance.

    So far these are great

    I have a set of these on my Lynskey Helix, on which I've been doing an 11-mile urban commute. I have a 28 on the back, 25 on the front. So far, these have been great. They're showing minimal wear, I've had zero flats, they seem to hold pressure pretty well. They feel fine to ride on - it's true what they say about wider tires giving a smoother ride and not adding to the overall effort. They were easy to put on. Feels like I have good feel, good control, tight in the turns. Two thumbs up.
