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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Gran Prix 4-Season

I am waiting for my Gran Prix 4000 23c tires to wear out. I previously had 28c gatorskins on this aluminum road bike. Without a doubt Continental handmade road bike tires are second to none! I ride on road, trail and gravel with this bike. I'll be buying my gator hard shells from BikeTiresDirect for my steel touring bike.

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.

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!

700C X 28 Smootg rolling and nice ride.

I ride approximately 150 miles per week on these tires. Asphalt bike lanes, canal paths, gravel paths and roads. After approximately 1,300 miles I've had one flat. This was caused by a pop rivet that went through the tire and tube. Run approximately 85 of air in each tire. Great ride, soft and low rolling resistance. Will purchase again.

Solid product, just like most Conti stuff

Easy to mount, rolling resistance is average to good (not spectacular? ). I ride about 60 miles a week over Seattle streets through multiple construction zones and thus far only one flat after 500 miles. To be fair, it was a one-inch jag of glass that cut through all layers, but I would think that with all the ballyhoo about Vectran that this would have been less of an issue. Not quite as tough as the Hardshell, but the ride quality is palpably more smooth. They were on a 40% off sale, so the value at that price point is good, but full retail seems a little high for what is promised to be an almost invisible flat-protection system.

A must for four season riding

These tires provide amazing grip and stability without the sacrafice of speed. I was a little hesistant at first, however, I switched into these from a pair of 4000's and felt nothing but improvement. I commute to work and ride year round in northern NJ. I can't believe I didn't start riding with these sooner.
