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.

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.

HYPE

There is a lot of positive hype about this tire and tubeless overall. it does feel pretty fast but

it is tooo soft . Twice i have had gravel shards drive through a 5000 like no other tire I ve used.

The struggles with this tire cost me several rides this summer . They don t seem any faster than super sonics, turbo cottons, or vitorias to me and I ve had more trouble with them. Appropriate for race wheels

perhaps but sneaking away from work to get a flat 5000 3 times just stinks. I expect a new conti

train fast tire to come after they lose some business.

Terrible tire. Please bring back the 4000 series.

An earlier reviewer wrote: "Honestly, they need to bring back the 4000s. A group of three of us, ranging from 165 lbs to 190 lbs to 240 lbs have all ridden the 25s and the 28s. They wear out extremely fast, with pieces seemingly falling off some of them. They puncture more than any tires we've ever used. I'm a big Continental fan, I love the 4 Seasons tires and the 4000s were great. These, to me, are a pure, one day race tire. For average riding or training, they are terrible. One tire lasted about 200 miles before blowing out a sidewall - with no impact. Another hit its wear indicator at around 5 or 600 miles. "

I concur. I had really good luck with the 4000 series tires, but these tires are too fragile with chunks of rubber falling out. These tires are no good for training as they are too fragile. I would never trust these tires for racing with the chunks of rubber falling out. ( I used to train and race on the 4000s'.)

great tire but a little pricey unless you buy it on sale like I did

I am a casual rider about 15 to 20 miles 4 or 5 times a week , always on the 4000s until I tried the 5000s . Great tire , a little smaller in size than the 4000s . Rode a little over 1000 miles but ran over piece of metal and cut one of them badly but still riding on it. Hoping it will last a little while longer.

Good Ride but weak flat prevention

First let me say this tire rides real well, good grip, very stable in the corners. It looked narrower than the 28mm it claims and it is by a 1.5 mm, which is odd because the 25mm version my second bike is wider by ~1mm. Go figure. I have had 2 flats , one about 25 feet from my garage where I picked up was was likely a piece of steel belt wire that sheds off off cars that have let their tires go too long. No idea what the second one was but it cut through the tire about 3/8 inch gash. The tire rides well enough that I bought the same as a replacement but my Conti 4000's provided me with much better flat protection. I'm running the 5000's on two of my bikes and the 4000's still on the third bike. Nice performing tire but always a bit worrisome for me if the road looks trashy.

Just want to also say the BikeTiresDirect is my go to place to buy tires, tubes and occasionally tools. Great company!

More roll for your money

Switched to the 4000 a couple years ago and have used them since. Lighter faster tire. You'll notice the difference right off the bat. For your everyday recreatonal rider these will do the trick. We usually ride at least 3 times a week and about 30 to 40 miles per ride. No problems so far.

Such a great tire! All around performance and reliability.

The Conti 5000 tires are such a great choice for comfort and performance. I won�t buy any others for all around training and performance. I live in Tucson (desert) where I ride in 100+ deg. Weather and we have a lot of rocks and thorns. I have not had one flat with Conti 5000�s since they first came out.

I would recommend purchasing. Watch for sales on biketiresdirect.

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.

Best all-round tire

Light, supple, grippy, surprisingly durable, easy to mount. Replaced the stock tires with these and increased my average speed by a bit more than 1 MPH. Expected these to be a bit tight, but they mounted easily without tools, and the bead seats firm. I had my first flat after 3,000 miles. On-the-road repair was fastest ever. Single lever was all I needed. Tread-wear indicator is a nice feature. Ordered another set on sale to have in reserve. Good-looking, too! Highly recommended.

Great ride quality, excellent long distance choice

Only about 500 miles on a set of these but fantastic ride quality, and my perception is good rolling resistance as well. Too soon to judge wear/durability but no flats so far. Used almost daily on long distance recreational riding, and occasional commutes over decent quality roads. Hard to beat for overall performance.

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.

Ride with confidence!

Just a well made tire that holds up well. Switch brands when I went to 25mm greatest decision I made. I feel very confident when taking high speed turns and they hold up great again road hazards. If you want puncture resistance get a MTB tires if not these hold up great!

Good Tire But Wears Quickly

Compared to the 4000s, these seem to wear quicker. I don't have exact numbers but I think I got less than 1000 miles out of them before they started showing significant signs of wear. I probably could have stretched it out a few extra miles but I started flatting. Other than that, they are a great tire.
