Continental's Grand Prix 5000 Road Tire is a high-performing all-rounder road tire featuring even better versions of Black Chili tread compound and tear-resistant Vectran Breaker technology, as well as two new technologies: Lazer Grip and Active Comfort.

Lazer Grip technology delivers more cornering traction from day one -‒ no break-in time required ‒- thanks to its micro profile structure ‒- little laser-drilled holes ‒- that reach over the shoulder of the tire. Integrated into the 3-ply/330tpi casing, Active Comfort technology provides stiffness in the sidewall and flexibility under the tread for greater vibration dampening and excellent ride comfort.

Features & Specs:

  • All-rounder & high-performance.
  • Active Comfort & Lazer Grip technologies.
  • Black Chili tread compound.
  • Vectran Breaker puncture protection.
  • Foldable bead.
  • 3-ply/330tpi casing.
  • Weight: 290g (700x32), 235g (x28), 215g (x25), 200g (x23).
  • PSI: 85-100 (700x32), 95-115 (x28), 95-120 (x25), 110-120 (x23).
  • BAR: 6,0-7,0 (700x32), 6,5-8,0 (x28), 6,5-8,5 (x25), 7,5-8,5 (x23).

great tires

Been riding the 5000s (regular version) for a couple weeks now and have a few hundred miles on them. 23mm in front, 25mm in rear, latex tubes. I'm 145lbs. I've gotten to do a lot of varied riding on them, including a very wet and rainy crit and gravel. IMO they are excellent tires.

I used to be a die hard Veloflex fan. I rode them for many years for the ride quality. I switched over to GP4000s because they wore better and rolled fast. I could tell they weren't as supple as the Veloflex but I was tired of how easily they cut. I was really excited to try the Michelin Power Competitions, but those were a failure for me. They roll fast and feel good but I got bad sidewall cuts that ruined the tires and made them unrepairable. Bad luck I suppose. I also tried some Vittoria Corsa G for a time, because I got a deal on them. They are okay. They are pretty durable for a supple tire, but they don't really ride that great for me. Not sure why. They definitely don't ride as nicely as the Veloflex. In any case, the 5000s are undeniably fast and IMO feel better than the 4000s, and better than any of the other tires I've mentioned above save for the Veloflex. I haven't ridden them for a few years now so can't really do a direct comparison but the 5000s feel close.

Best tires, yet

Love these tires. Comparing really to the continental TT. These have amazing rolling resistance. Very similar to the TT but the 5000s feel stronger and stickier.

Very nice upgrade, great all around and race tire!

purchased the 700 x 25 for my road and tri bike. Can't confirm whether or not it is significantly faster as advertising but does have a better feel to it on the road. Been running at 90 psi with the 4000sii and doing the same now. Seems to be a good psi for me (5'10 and 175 lbs). Haven't had any issues, knock on wood, flat protection seems adequate. Road raced and did an ironman and it served well for both.

Great Tandem Tire!

We switched over to the 32s of this model from a light touring tire for the summer. We have a tandem that can run up to 38s but these fit the bit for nice pavement to chip seal country roads. They are much faster and corner great. They also have a nice road feel as the larger volume lets us get away with lower pressure. Wouldnt take these on dirt, but thats not what they are made for!

Definite improvement

The Continental GP 4000 is a great tire that Ive ridden for years. The GP 5000 appears to be a definite improvement. The rubber has noticeably more grip right out of the box. After almost 800 miles the surface still appears new. No flats as yet. Its as supple as the 4000 and, although not apparent on the bike, reportedly lighter with significantly less rolling resistance which cant hurt. The profile seems lower which helps getting the wheel on and off my bike without deflating (I have a close tolerance behind the bottom bracket). Bottom line, an improvement over an already great tire.

Nice Road Tire

I have been a Conti 4000 user for many years and finally decided to upgrade to the Conti 5000 Tire. I found it to have a very good grip and very comfortable. If one used the 4000 S series tires I would say this 5000 is better but not significantly better. The specs may be better but out on the road, it is hard for me to report that the tire is significantly better. I would still recommend it, and will most likely buy another pair.

So far I really like these tires .

I ride about 75 mi. a wk. 25 mi. per ride average speed 13.5 14.5 on blacktop streets ,usually the same route ,I bought these tires 2 mo. ago and cannot attest to the durability at this point but I will say that they are by far the best rolling and fastest tires I have ever owned over the last 27yrs. .

So far, so good

I bought a pair of these when they first became available last week. I've only got 100 miles or so on them, so the jury is still out, but so far they seem at least as nice as the last version - GP4000S2.

I've been riding long enough to have used every generation since the GP2000. Continental has always had a strong contender in the high-end clincher road tire market. Since the introduction of the GP4000, they have pretty much dominated this segment. The GP4000 S2 was, or is, the tire of choice for the majority of riders in my bike club.

With each generation, Continental has made improvements in wear, flat protection, and ride quality. I'm looking forward to seeing how much better this new tire is compared to the old one, but I'll be really surprised if it isn't a noticeable upgrade.

Great tire, but expensive.

I have this tire mounted on a Fulcrum Racing 3db and it's a really nice combination. Ride, handling, rolling are all top notch. Expensive, but worth it. Can't speak to durability yet since I only have a few hundred miles on them.

This is what we have been waiting for!

As a huge long time fan of the 4000S2 I am so excited to have the new Grand Prix 5000.

The quality looks fantastic, and while I have only done a short ride on them so far, the early feeling is that this tire is fast and grippy. Can't wait to put more miles on them!

Conti does it again

Another awesome performance road tire from Continental. I've been a real fan of the GP4000 S2. There really hasn't been anything else that was really as good for performance road cycling. For a tire that grips and rides as well as the GP4000, it is surprisingly durable and resistant to flats.

Based on my admittedly limited experience with the GP5000 so far, it seems at least as good and probably better. Nice and grippy even on cold, wet roads. And it looks like it's going to be available in 700x32 which I'm really looking forward to for my endurance bike.

Not as good as 4000SII Tire

4000SII was perfect tire. Meaty tread, performance and low puncture risk if you looked after them. Within last year had one with defective tread? The new 5000 has lower rolling resistance, but due to the narrower sizing it is impossible to mount on super wide rim by hand, even with knowing the tricks and 25 years mounting tires. Really annoying!! And if you are a weight weenie, 5000 is heavier despite marketing. 5000 better choice for TT application than everyday use.

A step in the wrong direction

Im a long time fan of the 4000s, fast and great puncture protection. When I got a set of 5000s I had 3 flats in 3 rides, both tires are now useless, I swapped back to 4000s. The weight savings came as a result of less puncture protection and narrower. Only positive I see with them is they look great

Even better than the Conti GP 4000 S II

I got one of the first sets of these tires available for my new Gerard road race bike. I've used Continental GP 4000 S II tires faithfully for about seven years. The new 5000s feel smoother and more sure on descents.

All that and a bag of chips....

GP5000's deliver on every front! Fast, Light, Grippy, and Durable. Aesthetically designed, the graphicslogos are more subtle and the rubber is very dark as compared to the previous generation.
