The new GP4000 S II really does deliver on all fronts, combining speed and amazing handling with impressive puncture resistance and extended tread life. Just like the original GP 4000 S, this is one of the fastest, most durable, and best-riding tires available. In fact, it's even better—Conti claims that thanks to continued R & D, they're able to improve the venerable Black Chili compound by 3-4% every year, so the new model has even better adhesion in wet and dry conditions, better durability, and lower rolling resistance.

For those not clued into Black Chili, this is the lingo Conti uses for their top rubber. As the name implies, it can only be made in black—hence this tire's all-black center tread. In a nutshell, Black Chili is an incredibly dense rubber, made up of particles roughly ten times smaller than those typically used in bike tires. Placing this wonder compound directly at the contact patch results in a tire that's not only more durable, but more able to conform to (grip) the road. It's also more resistant to UV rays, helping it to resist cracking and premature tire wear. Add colorful sidewall options to the mix and you've got the best of both worlds, performance and style.

The tire also features Conti's patented Vectran puncture protection barrier underneath the tread. Originally developed by NASA in the construction of space shuttles and suits, Vectran is a tough but lightweight material that allows Conti to keep their tires extremely light while providing tremendous puncture protection.

The Grand Prix 4000 S II features a three-ply 330 TPI casing. Kevlar folding bead. Max inflation is 120 PSI. Claimed weight is 205 grams (700c x 23mm)

About the best race tire on the market that is rugged enough to train on.

I use these for riding, racing all of it. I've never found a tire that performs this well and also holds up to regular riding on imperfect roads.

There are many tires that perform this well, but none are as flat resistant and durable as the GP4000SII

Best Tires for road cycling in SoCal

I've ridden Conti Grand Prix 4000 for years now. They are my go to tire for road cycling and when I have an event. I've used them for several half and full Ironman triathlons and they've never let me down. I live in Orange County California and since we don't get much rain, they are perfect for our dry, sandy conditions.

By far the best tire out there!

Have been using Conti tires for many,many years I am able to get 1,500 to 2,000 miles before replacement. Living in Chicago and with city riding the Grand Prix 4000 S II performs well and pretty much puncture-proof for the first 1000 miles. Probably go through 4-5 tires per season.

I ride nothing but Conti tires and will continue to purchase these affordable tire especially when BikeTiresDirect has them on sale.

superb all around tire for all conditions

a very well handling, light, responsive tire. I am using the 25C version and they actually measure out to 27 mm when inflated to 98 psi which is what I run the rear at, the front I run at 92. I weigh an even two bills and have found these tires to be ideal for all seasons as they also provide excellent puncture resistance with the high strength belt Conti uses. Durability is also good, you do want the tire to show wear over time as this indicates the suppleness of the tread. Check 'em out.

Better than ham & eggs

Years ago I rode on Champion Del Mondo sew ups, I have always said that this was my number one tire, then I bought some challenge Paris roubaix from bike tires direct these come up to match the Champion, but I found them a little frail. Then I tried the Continental 4000 s and I love them. I am 68 and have ridden about 400k miles and have tried everything within reason and I will highly recommend these to anyone!

Got 4,000 miles out of pair easy

These are great tires with a good balance of durability, suppleness, nice rolling, decent cornering, and relatively light weight. I got about 3600 miles on them before my first flat, though I did rotate back to front about half way through. Some of that was luck, I think, because it was my best no flat streak ever, even better than some Michelin Kyrlions I once had, and good a lot of flat-free miles out of. After fixing the flat, I got a several more rides on them, but noticed sharp gravel was working its way into a few nicks in the tires so I retired the set for use on my trainer set up in winter, and bought a new pair on sale. So close to 4,000 miles on those tires with only one flat, and I could have used them further in a pinch because they still had a bit of rubber left on them. On sale, these are great tires at very good value.

Looking forward to using the new set of 4000IIs soon, after the winter debris gets fully washed off the roads by spring rains. I still have my winter wheels on the bike with Continental Gatorskin Hardshells on them, which while very flat resistant, aren't as supple or as nice cornering as the 4000 IIs.

Continental Grand Prix 4000S 700C

Have used for years. Continentals are dependable, love the wear indicator dimples & roll & corner efficiently.

Do wish access to longer stem presta 60mm tubes was easier. Why don't more manufacturers make such? With the increase in carbon wheels, longer stems is necessary. And I prefer non-threaded smooth stems so the grommet in my air pumps are not worn out by the thread abrasion faster. Please consider this.

My 'go to' tire!

I love this tire for a number of reasons. First, it's one of the few I can find that come in the 700 x 20 size. While I have read and understand the logic behind the physics of a bigger tire, I'm a firm believe in the 20s and will continue to use them until I cannot purchase them any more. These Continentals are consistently reliable and I am always confident when riding on them. I race with these as well as do high mileage distance rides and really get a ton out of these tires. I rarely have blowouts which gives me an even greater confidence to ride hard when racing. I've found 20s in other tires that haven't lasted nearly as long as the Continentals. It's a solid, consistently well performing tire that I will continue to purchase.

Simply Perfect

28mm GP4000sII tires have LESS rolling resistance than 25 or 23mm.

If you are like me and use lower pressures, the difference is even more dramatic.

So you get lower rolling resistance and more comfort at the same time!

The reflective sidewalls are amazing! Gone are the ugly logos and printing and in their place is a wonderful, functional, aesthetically pleasing strip of reflective material. Brilliant.

These come in 25mm as well with the reflex if you can't fit a 28 in your frame.
