Continental's tough Grand Prix 4-Season is even tougher with the addition of the Vectran anti-puncture breaker. The ultimate combination of speed, low weight, and all-weather performance, combined with excellent puncture and sidewall protection. Black casing with added 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. 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.

great quality continues

these four-season tires are great for winter riding and last longer than I expected. I also use them on the trainer and compared to the wear on other tires, these last significantly longer. I don't like the cost of Continentals in general, but Bike Tires Direct helps make them affordable for the average Joe Cyclist. Thanks!

Great tandem tire.

The 32 or 28 size is the tires to use on a tandem bicycle. The ride is good and wet traction...with a reduction in tire pressure...instills confidence. Especially like the black side wall. Punctures are a thing of the past.

Good Tire

These tires will obviously not be as light as the GP4000's or GP5000's that I put on my road bikes but on my commuter bike they are perfect. They provide a really nice ride. If you get caught in wet weather they channel water away from the bike very effectively. A really solid tire. Get them on sale and they would be hard to beat.

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.

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.

Amazing!

Recently installed these and with over 100 miles I am extremely willing to say that these roll smooth,they are light, I can run high psi and quiet to boot! If looking for a tyre I highly recommend these.

Excellent tire . . . tread looks great after 2,000 miles

I switched from by usual Continental Gator Hardshell to these because they were on sale, and can't tell the difference. I have about 2000 miles on the Continental Grand Prix 4-Season Special Edition Black and very little wear on the tread. The sidewall seems a little more beat up than usual, but I don't know if it's me or the tire.

Compromise between ride and durability

These tires deliver the best compromise between ride quality, grip, and durability. They don't excel at any one of those aspects and that's likely the objective. Heightening one seems to take away from the other. These are good for everyday commuting or training but they definitely don't roll and ride as well as others targeted for speed or ride quality. For the money, they can't be beat. They'll survive a century ride over rural roads and last a long time. I just wish these delivered a better ride but that would mean the sidewall losing strength and puncture protection being compromised. I am going to try the 5000s and compare. Given I just used the Vittoria Corsas (zero durability but buttery smooth), that's likely the next tire I'll try to get a better ride.

My preferred tire year round.

I've used these tires (either special edition black or original) for over 5 years. The hold up well, get relatively few punctures, and ride very well.

I'll certainly continue using these in wet or dry weather!

Was having too many flats.

Have used a different brand of tire for many years, too many flats, needed something with less flats.

Ordered these in a 700x25c this year to try. My first ride on them I noticed much less rolling resistance.

I have ridden them for 2200 miles this year and have not had any flats. I use these on a Cannondale Cad8

bicycle ridden only on paved roads. These will be my go to tire on my road bike now.

Longest lasting Continental race tire in my experience

I've ridden several tire brands for the last 26 years - Continental has always been durable but not necessarily long-lasting in my experience (in the competitive-race category tires).

It was a pleasant surprise to realize I rode almost 3000 miles on this rear tire (granted, it was off-season), 2000-2500 is more the norm for my usual go-to brand. So if there's something new with the Grand Prix 4 to make it tougher than before, then I can vouch it's true!

Great Tires!

These tires are worth the money! They have a great feel (FAST) low rolling friction and look great. I use them on my steel frame commuter bike (size 700x32) and absolutely love them! Highly recommended!!

Same as regular Grand Prix 4-Season only black

Love these tires and the regular Grand Prix 4-Season. The last upwards of 2500 miles or more. They don't puncture often, are grippy in both dry and wet, and are reasonable comfortable. These tires are my all year tires, the only exception being when I'll use the GP 4000s during the summer months. The 25mm tires (which I love and now use only) are not overly wide, while a set of 28mm tires I purchased left little to no room in the rear brake caliper, sometimes rubbing the rear caliper or getting small pebbles jammed in there while riding. So, depending on the size you choose and your clearance, you'll need to make sure you have enough room.

Toughness and grip

Came off a set of Veloflex Masters, and the difference is just as you'd expect between Italy and Germany. Italy passionate or whatever aka cool but flawed, lighter, faster, more delicate. Germany tough, thorough, engineered precision.

Great tires for the PNW. Not the fastest but so grippy and inspiring in slimy to wet conditions. Seem super tough so far also. I was gentler on the Veloflexes, pinch flats and all that, not so on the Contis. Full speed ahead on whatever comes, bunnyhop the urban campers. We have a lot of random shit and broken glass on our streets.
