Fast Rolling Tire

I been using continental 4000S tires for a long time, Now that the 5000 came out I wanted to try them , and I am not disappointed , it feels fast and grippy just like the old one . If it is as durable as the 4000 I am a happy cyclist. Of course durability of any tire depends on the terrain and the weight of the rider, I am pretty light and I am lucky that most of the roads in my area are pretty smooth. The only downside is installing the tire for the first time can be difficult, it fit pretty snug. Tire lever are a most ,

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.

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.

Impressive Tire

I've amassed 2600 miles on these Conti GP 5k tires. The rear tire is just now showing the flat wear so time to rotate. No flats (did I jinx myself here?). I've ordered another on sale already. Good value when they are the Deal of the Day.

The Only Tire I Ride On!

The Conti 5000s are great. Not only do they roll true to size, but they last for thousands of miles. Put 4000 on a set I installed in June...and now am thinking I finally need to replace them. Only two flats all season...and one was in my driveway! Great value.

Great clinchers

Started using these Conties again and nice and sticky and good flat protection. I train and race on these.

You can't go wrong with these, pricey but when on sale can be a good buy, stock up when on sale.

Formidable but Flawed

Purchased three 700X28c GP5K's. Anticipating my standard rotation of two rear tyres (expecting 3K miles ea.) / one front. Say four to six months of riding. TOTAL usage from these three was <250 miles. Three mystery (non sidewall) cuts, from mystery debris that shredded the tyre even thru the liner and created emphatic tubular flats. My first ride, 30 miles rolled, following the group and Bam, one rear tire gone. We scouted for what could have caused this and nothing was found. Called up the 2nd tyre and new Schwalbe tube and had a fine ride. GP5K provided comfort at speed, confidence in cornering, was agile and quick. Then two days later another Bam moment. Put the front GP5K on rear; placed a used Vittoria Corsa Control on front and enjoyed a twin bammer day in less than 100Km. Theory, desert southwest summer asphalt temp.'s, speeds all near 25 mph, and a design flaw where what should be a tiny debris cut cascades into a major tyre/tube destroying tear.

Good tire

I've been running these since using up the last of my Condo 4000 tires. Longevity seems about the same. Did lose one 5000 to a sidewall cut but the rock I hit probably would have taken out the 4000 as well. Good ride.

Excellent tire for my riding

Started using the GP 5000 when the 4000 S II stopped being made. I can't say I really notice a difference to the 4000 S II, but still get great roll with them, and have only had 1 flat in 3.5 years of riding (roughly 8000 miles). Purchased when on sale, and use them exclusively. I am a 205 lb rider using the 23mm version, but like the way they ride and handle.

Good tires but not for high milage training after 200 miles start getting flats. Very flimsy and feel paper thin. Probably for racing.

Great tire but very soft!

I've used other GP4000 / GP4000S tires in the past and was not impressed with them. They didn't offer the rolling resistance or cornering grip I liked.

The GP5000 tires (in 28mm) changed that. I find these tires are great for all around riding, cornering grip and rolling resistance.

Unfortunately, you can't get everything. These tires are soft and can be punctured pretty easily. I would avoid running over any glass or thorns. I've gone through many tires already, but I accept that fact for having nearly "race-tire"-like performance on a daily basis.

Buy these tires if you want grip, but accept that they can and will be punctured. I hope you have extra tubes and co2 cartridges while riding! I had both tires go flat from riding through an area of thorns. Not fun.

These tires are also quite expensive, but if you can find them on sale, buy them! When they were half off, I bought three pairs of them. I just love these tires but accept they're fragile.

Grippy, fast, durable Conti 5000

Every day cycling enthusiast, riding roughly 200 miles per week. I've always ridden Conti 4000s, then these came out and gave them a try. They're expensive at my LBS, which is why I got them on this site. The GP5000s are just as fast as their predecessors and more durable than before. The 4000s tended to get weaker over time , before they were fully worn , especially in the sidewall. The 5000 have lasted for months without issues or punctures (that may be luck) of every day use in southern California. They are long-lasting, grippy, inspire confidence on the descents, and are fast rolling. I'll not buy anything else.
