The luxury model.

It's packed with features! The Vectran is tops for preventing flats without ruining your road feel. The Duraskin helps prevent sidewall cuts. The extra soft rubber compound makes the tire grip exceptionally in bad weather. ...and all this without weighing a ton or feeling like a training tire. It's great! But somebody's got to pick up the tab, and it's a bit pricey for a training tire. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

Very best toughy tires for longevity, puncture resistance, grip, plus simple artistic tread design.

As a 71 year old retiree I have the privilege of riding a titanium Habanero crosstour bike with disk brakes for 150 to 250 miles each week. Plus the Continental tired Habanero takes me on 2 or 3 tours of 300 to 400 miles each summer. I pack light (- 40 lbs) and the 4 Season 28 mm tires carry that total 225 lbs over country roads and hard packed gravel with ease. I buy a new set for the summer tours then ride them out in the wet falls and winters of the Willamette Valley. They flat seldom. Unavoidable road debris cuts the tread but the tough core protects the tube. The slight increase in tire weight provides a security tread for all conditions increasing my confidence in cornering at high speeds. Yes, 71 year olds can attain high speeds and corner without causing heart attacks or strokes. I trust this tire more than any (and I have bought and replaced many tires). I could but wont' name a few duds that cost about the same.

Tough, wide, sticky and comfortable

I've been riding the 28mm version of these tires in the beating down rain, crud, gravel, branches, rocks and muck on the side of the road in Pacific NW springtime. No flats, traction is very reassuring and the tires feel great. I ride them at low pressures (65-70 PSI) on wide-ish rims. Did I mention the ride feel is great? Comfortable, not harsh. I've ridden other 28mm tires at the same pressure and those others are not as comfortable. Can't speak to long-term durability but so far they are holding up great with a few hundred miles on them.

Note these are muck and grunge training or commuting tires, not racing tires. That's what I rated them as. If you want lightweight racing tires with low rolling resistance, these ain't those. But as winterspring training tires, these are the best tires I've run in years. Very satisfied.

Robust tire with good handling quality.

I really enjoy riding on Continental tires. Typically in nice conditions I'll be on Conti GP4000IIs tires but, when I know conditions will be poor and the road may not be very nice, I like to slip on these Conti GP4-Seasons.

I've used these tires for when I'm going to do a long ride in the rain or when I'm going to be going over more difficult roads. I feel quite confident taking these tires through a slightly rough gravel trail section without having to worry about a puncture.

I also used these for a criterium which took place in the rain. A few guys fell in a set of technical corners but I was able to get through with confidence with these tires.

All in all, I would recommend having a set of these 4-seasons on hand in case you are going to be riding in off weather. Or if you expect to be riding on mixed roads, they are quite robust in terms of puncture resistance.

So far so good

I have the 700x28 mounted on Spinergy Stealth wheels on my tandem. They measured at 27.5mm soon after mounting. I wanted something just a little faster than Gatorskins without giving up too much reliability and puncture protection as handling the big bike on a flat tire can be a little bit dicey. I weighed both tires using a hanging scale and they both weighed exactly the same which I took as a sign of quality manufacturing.

Solid and tough all around performer

I picked up a pair of these while on sale at a great price. I use them for general road riding/training and for a few gravel-grinder organized rides (Hell of Hunterdon, Fool's Classic). After using several brands/models of tires, these have held up the best for the gravel roads. MUCH better than GatorSkins which I have had terrible luck with tearing the sidewalls on several. This is a much better tire IMO and a better price. Supple enough to use as a daily road tire as well.

I'm 140lb and the 25mm work well for me - I don't like the ride/feel of wider tires. Zero punctures, flats, or tears after many miles of rough gravel.

Great winter tire

Have always had good luck with Continental tires, and I especially like the GP 4-Seasons for my winter bike due to its nice ride quality, excellent grip on wet pavement, and decent flat resistance. The tread compound does seem fairly soft, which is undoubtedly why they grip so well, so they may not last as long as tires with a harder compound - but for me that's a worthwhile trade-off. I'm happy to get 1,500 - 2,000 miles on a set of tires and the GP 4-Seasons will do that easily.

Good compromise tire between the GP-4000 and the Gatorskin

I bought these because I really like the performance of the GP-4000 Continental tires and on the other side of the coin I appreciate the puncture resistance of the Gatorskin tires. So far so good. Yes, not quite as fast as the GP-4000 but for sure livelier than the Gatorskins. For sure faster than the Gators and so far no flats so we'll see how that works out longer term. I bought these for ultra distance timed events (double centuries) where speed is important but flat resistance maybe more so.

Great tires

My previous set of Grand Prix 4-Season lasted a little over 4000 miles. Had one rear puncture in 4k is awesome! One thing i really like about them is the ride. Usually when you have a tire that is this puncture resistant they will have a harsh ride. These are great tires for the money.

Best year-round tire

I've used Michelins, Vittorias and Hutchinsons before, but these are the longest lasting and most durable year-round tire that I've used. I just wish that it comes out in a tubeless version sometime soon!

Long Lasting

I replaced Vittoria Rubinos with the Continental 4 Season when a stone ripped the Rubino's sidewall open. I was probably on my 3rd set after putting 11.5 K on the 4 Seasons over 3 years. I rode them 12 months a year with no issues. I think one flat when I rode a set too long. The last set is still good, but I now use the bike they are on on the trainer. They hold up well on the trainer too. I do rotate my tires about every 1k. I ride for exercise so I can' t talk to performance other than wear, but rain or shine I never felt unsafe in the tire, well once when they were completely under water on a flooded road. And even then I wasnt sliding around.
