GP5000: The Gold-Standard For Road Tires

The Continental Grand Prix 5000 is a worthy successor to the beloved Grand Prix 4000 S II road tire, which reigned over the road-clincher bicycle tire market for over ten years. As you can imagine, creating a better version than the GP4000 was not a simple task, but Conti did it.

The new Grand Prix 5000s are high-performing all-rounders 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.

The German tire manufacturer focused specifically on the two problematic areas of the GP4000s — cornering grip and puncture protection. With their added tech in both these departments, the GP5000 rises above all other comparable clinchers.

The Vectran Breaker puncture protection is lighter, is more flexible, and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker used in previous models. Like spider silk, Vectran is an extremely strong and lightweight synthetic material, woven tightly into a multi-strand barrier.

The GP5000's Lazer Grip technology delivers more cornering traction from day one — no break-in time is required thanks to its micro profile structure that reaches over the shoulder of the tire.

Integrated into the 3-ply/330tpi casing of the Grand Prix 5000, Active Comfort technology provides stiffness in the sidewall and flexibility under the tread for greater vibration dampening and excellent ride comfort.

New for 2021 are two additions to the Grand Prix 5000 tire family that will add flair to your tarmac trophy bike or radical racehorse: A cream sidewall modeled after Continental's commemorative Tour de France edition (but without the race's branding) and a throwback brown sidewall that Continental has dubbed "transparent," so-named because the tire's "carcass is visible under a transparent coating."

Superb Tires: Solid and Dependable.

I have been riding on these Continental GP5000s (25mm) since October 9th, 2022. I have enjoyed every mile, and have felt completely safe when bombing hills and trying to stay close to the fastest guys in our group (or not get dropped). These tires have been dependable and problem free. After 1,625 miles over 3 months, my tires were finally tested by Mother Nature when a Goat's Head (those pesky enemies of the MTB crowd) pierced the area where the sidewall meets the tread. It wasn't all the glass and debris of Pacific Coast Highway that I am amazed I was able to navigate without so much as the smallest problem - it was a Goat's Head on a paved road. I am still amazed by these tires and they will continue to be my "go to" tire until something better comes along.

Good tire if you have the right rims

I bought a pair of GP5000s 25mm to run on HED Ardennes Pro rims and they were impossible to mount, I gave up and mounted them on Mavic Open Pro rims with no problems. Although they're labeled as 25mm they measured 23mm when mounted. The Mavic rims are narrower than the HED rims and that seems to be the reason I found them impossible to mount. I've been running Michelin 25 and 28s on the HED rims and have not had any mounting problems. The Michelins are also wider than the marked width, approximately 27mm and 30mm. I'm not sure if if I will try upsizing to 28mm Contis for the HED rims or just keep running Michelin since I know that I won't have problems mounting them.

Overall, a really nice road tire.

A little challenging to mount as the tire diameter is really snug, so get out your tire levers and some muscle, but they will go on. First things noted, the rolling resistance is really excellent. When properly inflated they will coast for along time and even on moderately poor pavement have very low rolling resistance. Also, cornering grip, even on somewhat sandy corners is better than expected. Haven't had them long enough to comment on wear but so far, so good

Conti GP 5000 sets the standard other tires aspire to.

Okay, I admit it, I am old school. I still ride a road bike with rim brakes and shod with standard clinchers (butyl tubes). I ride many thousands of miles every year and deal with a lot of pretty rough pavement. I have tried all the usual suspects from Michelin, Vittoria, Schwalbe, Vredestein, Veloflex, etc. All good tires, but I always go back to Conti GPs for a combination of feel, long tread life, puncture protection, and ease of installation. I have a collection of bikes, so I stock up on tires (and tubes) whenever BTD has online specials.

Great Road Tires

I average about 3,500mi yearly on Indiana roads with these tires before replacing them. Some lighter riders have gotten over 5,000mi. The 700x28mm give a cushioned ride at 75psi and grip the road well even in wet weather. I've only had one pinch flat crossing some railroad tracks to fast, the 4 years I've been using these.

Best road tire I have ever used.

I have been using Continental Grand Prix tires for several decades. Each generation from 1000 to 5000 seems to mark an improvement in performance and wear. I use them on my singles and on my tandem too. Tandems are tough on tire mileage, but these last many more miles than anything else I have tried. I'm sure that there are other tires out there that may be as good, but I haven't been able to try everything available. But as long as I have found a winner, I am not going to be looking for one to replace these. Very few flats, good wet or dry traction, comfortable ride. I can't ask for more. One last thing that I noticed - the tire "height" from the rim to the tread is slightly lower profile compared to the GP 4000 mounted on the same rims. Not sure why but I can't detect a difference in performance. However it will affect the rollout calibration on a bike computer.

This is a great tire for club rides. Fast rolling and puncture resistant. I get a full season of over 3000 miles (4800km) on a pair of 28 with latex tubes. I had one puncture each of the last 3 seasons.

Another awesome tire from Continental!

All my bikes have Continental tires and my new Specialized Allez Sprint Comp is no exception. Ordered these tires in 700x28 to give me a little more width than the factory 700x25 and it was the best thing I could have done. Smooth rolling with no resistance. I don't ride when the roads are wet and I don't think these would excel in wet conditions but they are very grip when it's dry out. The transparent sidewall matches my Oasis color bike. Would order these again in a heartbeat as I loved them more than the grand sport.

Great Road tires and very durable

I have always ridden Continental tires over the past 5 years. These are great road tires and are extremely durable. They are a little difficult to get on but since they do not have a bad failure rate I use them religiously.

Good Solid Performing Tire

With this tire often being available at a sale price, I buy a few at a time when possible. I've been using the GP 5000 for years and can only remember two punctures. They hold up well to wear and tear and grip the road in corners. I believe their weight also compares well to other, similar models.

Great riding tire but TERRIBLE quality!!

Like other reviews, I have been extremely disappointed in the quality of the GP 5000. In the past 3 months, I have experienced 4 side wall blowouts. One tire was only a week old! The Conti used to be the ONLY tire I would ride, now I will be looking for a new tire to purchase.

Best Conti's ever!

Over the pandemic, I had to switch back to Conti's due to lack of availability of my usual Michelins. While I stopped using Conti's after the GP2k's since they were rather harsh in comparison to the Michelin pros 2's a the time, these GP5k's are a revelation!

I've been impressed by the GP5k's smoothness, gripiness, and overall rideability. Rolling resistance seems to be better than the the Michelin Power endurance tires that I briefly tried (and then switched back to GP5k's).

I got about 3k miles on my first set of GP5k's and am now on my second set. I've been using these tires on my commute bike (20-40 miles daily) as well as for training (though I don't race much any more). For those that thought Conti's gave a harsh ride, I'd recommend trying the GP5k's and seeing for yourself how much more rideable these tires are over older gen Conti's.

A great all around tire.

The Continental Grand Prix 5000 is a great all around tire. It offers nice grip on corners, a smooth ride and long mileage. I have ridden on these tires for 5,000 kilometers (~3,000 miles) and they are still rideable. I have ridden them on the road and gravel in Italy, Australia and the United States and have never been disappointed by the way they perform.

My current choice of tire for road riding.

I use these tires on my #1 bike. Previously used Grand Prix 4 Seasons.

That's where I learned the Vectran belt worked at preventing flats.

When the Continental Grand Prix 5000 got the Vectran belt I switched to them,

They work well for me.

For a road tire the conti 5000 is in the top tier. Low rolling resistance, comfort, durability and puncture resistant. The only drawback is the price. Bottom line: grab them when they're on sale.

Amazing tire that gets better with age

Like any release of new technology in a trusted product, you have to give good things time to let the kinks get worked out. And this tire was well worth the wait. In all honesty, getting these on a rim yourself is like an exercise in masochism. You�ll wonder what you did for karma to punish you like this.

That being said, it�s also well worth the pain because this tire gives you such a sense of relief. It is so good. Furable, reliable and a lot tougher than previous GP tires. I got a medium-sized gash in my rear tire a few weeks ago and didn�t even know until I got home 30 miles/2 hours later. I don�t like that it happened but at least I know these tires worth the price.

Great Tires

Reliable tires with a great feel on the road. These are a great value, especially if you can find them on sale, which they often can be stocked up on towards the end of the season. These measure closer to their actual size than the 4k which ran a little big. These roll well, get good grip, and *knock on wood* have not resulted in any flats.
