High performing. All-rounder. The GP5000.

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.

The GP5000's Lazer Grip technology delivers more cornering traction from day one - no break-in time required thanks to its micro profile structure that reach 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.

  • All-rounder & high-performance.
  • Active Comfort & Lazer Grip technologies.
  • Black Chili tread compound.
  • Vectran Breaker puncture protection.

Smooth, grippy, not robust

I am a Conti fan, having settled in on the Grand Prix 4 Season tire as my go for many years, after trying several different brands. I got a new road bike a year ago, and thought I wold give the 5000's a try when the OEM tires gave way. Those were Specialized Turbo Pro's, and based on my previous experience with Specs, I thought they would be shot after 500 miles. In fact, I got 3150 out of the rear, and 4000 on the front!

Once I was fully on the 5000's I noticed 2 things right away - they are indeed smooth, fast, and grippy, but the sizing is a little questionable. I moved from being a 700x23 @120psi diehard, to 25's, and with the new bike, 28's running 75 psi F, 85 psi R. (I am 6'2", 180 lbs). If you're an old diehard skinny tire rider, do yourself a favor and try something different - easily just as fast, and waaaay more comfortable. When I mounted the 5000's it was immediately clear that although labelled 28's they were no bigger than 25's. So if you're looking for bigger tires, I would suggest going all the way to 32's - that's what I plan to do if these last long enough to be worth repeating.

The rear tire has 900+ miles on it now, and is showing considerable wear. Lots of cuts and nicks, with one fairly small cut having nicked a cord of the casing. By contrast, the Spec's had many more and deeper cuts, without a single injury to the casing. In fact on removal I saw that the sidewall had been cut along the radial line about 1" all the way to the casing, yet the tire performed flawlessly!

A word about rubber- these 5000's new out of box had noticeably less rubber on the wear surface than my 4000 mile worn Spec did!

If I can get 2000 miles flat free, I will consider another pair. The Specs went their entire life flat free, which is amazing. Plus they were a dream to ride.

Some reviewers commented on sidewall weakness. So far, no problems. Also, others say tires difficult to mount, but mine went on pretty easily, FYI. Lastly, I believe these are an improvement over the 4000's, as my experience with those was that they flatted like crazy.

long lasting and dependable

I am a daily fitness rider who rides at least 30 miles each morning. This is my second set of Continental Grand prix 5000's and I have been very happy with them. They are resistant to flats, corner well and are very dependable, lasting around 5000 miles even through a Boston winter. Bought them on sale for a good price and expect for them to last me the rest of this year and into next year as well.

New Continental 5000 are no were close to the old 4000 in dependability!

Avid road cyclist, loved the old continental 4000, these new continental 5000 are horrible. The wear is ridicules, 1k miles an they are significant wear on tread. All kinds of cuts an side wall shows seperation an thinness. They do ride better an I like the low profile. But not worth the over all wear factor. The 4000 were great last thousands of miles with little or no abrasions. Bring back the 4000 thks.

EVERYTHING AS CONTINENTAL ADVERTISES

I started using Conti 5000s two years ago because of their claims over the Conti 4000s which I was using, especially flat protection. The first day I cut down the sidewall on glass that would have cut anything. Ok, i bought another one to really try these out. Well, 3000 miles later ( on two bikes) they have lived up to all their claims. One complete year with no flats. Subjectively I do believe the ride is slightly better than the 4000s ( not as good as the Vittorias, but they are a poor choice for flat protection here in Las Vegas with lots of broken glass and lots of shredded tire filaments) and they are definitely lighter. I'm using the regular tire and not the tubeless and couldn't be happier!

Great tire

I own these in both 28c and 32c. I run them with tubes and have about 300 miles on them. I ride them both on road and gravel paths and so far no flats. Low rolling resistance and hi comfort. I run the 32's on my fixed gear at 85psi and the 28's at 100psi. I'm larger at 235 and have no issues with either size though I prefer the 32's.

I have a few reviews of Gatorskins, which I like alot, on BTD as well. While these ride better, I don't have the level of trust as far as puncture protection goes with these as I do with Gatorskins. At least not yet. Time will tell, though so far these are looking good.

Fast Rolling Butt Undecided

I changed from a set of Bontrager tires and immediately noticed a big difference in rolling resistance and speed. For the first 3 months I had these they performed flawlessly and seemed to be durable and fast rolling. My only complaint was they are not the most subtle tire in regards to taking out the road vibrations. I ride an aluminum bike so I don't have all the luxury that a full carbon bike has so tires make a big difference. I was really happy until one day at about 500 miles I had a major blowout. I inspected the road and never found anything that could have caused the sidewall cut and I did not hit any holes. Was it the tire or a slight cut from another day out? I don't know but i was unable to repair it. At this point I'll say it's just a case of bad luck. I decided to give another brand and a bigger tire size a try. Will I come back to the Conti's? Perhaps, I'm not sure at the moment and I want to compare how a 36 performs compared to the 32 Continental.

Puncture resistance is improved and I put that to the test.

Before taking the new road bike tire for a spin, I reviewed the technology first. The Grand Prix 5000 has a 12% lower rolling resistance, a 20% better puncture resistance and 10 grams less weight according to Continental. The tires puncture resistance was improved and I put that to the test. While out for a ride we encountered a large patch of glass. My buddies all got flats. I pulled some glass shards out of the tire. No damage and No Flats... The tire smoothly glides over asphalt and my bike has no problem accelerating.

best clincher on the road

I ride thousands of miles a year and have used many major brands including Continental. I used the 400 for years and tried the 5000 when it came out. Great rolling resistance, smooth comfortable feel and very few punctures. I got close to 3000 miles on the rear tire and almost 6000 on the front. Great value and extremely reliable. Would recommend to any road bike rider.

Has pluses and minuses

This was the original tire on my bike, and I had something like three flats in the first week of riding. Thinking it could be a factory issue, I bought a new set, same brand/model. Coincidentally, they did somewhat better off the shelf, but still highly prone to flats. They are crazy fast tires, but the downside of that is that the rubber wears super fast (pretty worn after only 650 km), and is soft enough that just about anything goes through. If you can ride near enough to your house that someone can pick you up, or cary lots of tube and tire patch kits, go for it. The inconvenience was such that I just decided switched to Continental's GP 4-Season tire. The rubber on that one is harder and they are marginally slower, but not overly so. I kept the GP5000 in case I race. I had better flat results from Michelin Pro4 Service Course, and they were faster than Conti's GP 4-Season, and much more puncture resistant and longer wearing than Conti's GP 5000. Even on a commuter bike! May end up going back to them over the Contis. (except they are not manufactured in 28 mm, which I need for my rear wheel), or Michelin's Power Road TS, which I have yet to try.

Fast-Grippy-Simply Awesome!

I replaced some training tires on my old road bike with the GP5000 in 700x28c size and could notice an immediate improvement in ride quality, cornering and speed. My average speed on matched rides per Strava jumped 1-2 mph with the GP5000. Ok, maybe I'm just getting a little fitter or maybe the weather conditions are making a difference, but I put a second set in 700x25c on my TT bike yesterday. On a matched 22 mile ride from 2 days earlier that had much nicer weather (20 deg warmer and less wind) I was 0.5 mph faster with the GP5000 compared to the Spec. Mondo Pro in 700x21c. Plus I was able to crack into a leader board on a segment that was dominated by a club rider peloton and had another PR even with the brutal 15mph cross wind. Yes, they are hard to get on and off the rim. It requires tire levers and I would hate to be fixing a flat on the side of the road. But 500+ miles on the first set and no problems so far. I have swapped the tires from my road bike to a hybrid and back, so I'm even getting used to tight fit on the rims. My tire of choice now!

Even Better than the 4000's

I bought these at a good sale price a few months ago and put them on last week when my 4000's were getting flats to easily. This is usually a sign to me that they needed replacing-about 3000 miles worth of wear.

The new tires were a tight fit on my DT Swiss carbon rims but the new bike tire tool, a Crank Brothers Speedier lever, lived up to its name. It made mounting the tubes much easier than putting on the 4000's , which was what led me to buying the new Crank Bros. tool in the first place. The tires look good on the bike and ride well with better grip on the turns than the previous ones. The ride is comfortable, too. I'm not sure I can tell if they have less rolling resistance. Obviously, I can't comment on longevity or flat resistance yet but usually have good luck with Continental products.

Try these tires. I think they are a good example of continuing product improvement by Continental.

Excellent ride quality

I am an avid cyclist of mostly group rides that range between 20 to 75 miles over flat to hilly terrain. Back roads with some countysecondary roads to help connect the dots. I was a long time user of the Continental brand between the GP4000s and the 4Season. I went between the two depending on the season, weather, and the amount of riding where durability was more sought than ride quality. I would trade between the two by switching out the tires. I ride a 500 mile7 day cycling fundraiser every July in the Northeast US so that alone causes some flux as to what tire to use. I recently went off course by trying out the Vittoria Corsa G which claimed to have vastly improved its durability by way of a new material called Graphine. The first two sets where super fast and buttery smooth. The third set which was used over the 500 mile ride rendered the ugly durability head by rendering three flats. I have since switched back to Continental as I was made aware of the 5000s. Of course they are on par with the Corsas in terms of speed and roll resistance but I've been told the 5000s were made with a 20% improvement on puncture resistance. I just took them out for 40 miler and have to say they are impressive from a ride quality and rollspeed standpoint. I did not flat during that ride but honestly its going to take a much larger sample size to determine just how much more durable they are than the 4000s, the Corsas, and whether they're close enough to the Conti 4Seasons which while very reliable deliver a slower ride with greater vibration. Ruins the experience a bit.

I'm very happy with the 5000s but jury remains out on the surviving the rural routes.
