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."

895 Mile Review

I just finished two months and 895 miles on my new Conti GP5000s. I run the 700x23 clinchers at appprox 108/110 psi, using the Silca weight/size calculator. I really like these tires on my Pinarello, and I used to swear I would never change from my Vredestein Fortezza Tri-Comps - until they stopped making them. The Conti GP5000 is a great tire. I have not encountered a single problem, nor had a flat over the last 895 miles, and I will most certainly stick with these tires until something better is created.

Comfortable and Secure

Bought these for a 200mi, 2-day charity grand fondo as an upgrade from an all-condition tire I was training on. I'm 186lb so run these 32mm at 65-68psi. Comfortable yet firm and secure in the turns. Only one flat in the ~800mi I have on them.

Had previously owed and was very satisfied with the Continental 5000. I was looking for this tire with yellowish looking side walls to compliment the Rage Red on my Trek Damone and found it with a creme side wall, very satisfied and happy with looks and performance.

Good tires

I installed these tires (28c) on my 2018 Diamondback Century 1 in early July. This set is my third set of Continental brand tires. I buy these tires due to durability. I ride on some very rough streets here in Memphis and no flats. As with all new tires, it takes a few rides for them to speed up. You will have to air these tires up every few days after first installing them due to expansion. In typical Continental fashion, the last 6 inches is the most difficult to get on the rim. Have a good tire lever or that bike seating tool. The gum wall looks good, too, but not too much on my bike. Overall, I am pleased with these tires and the Continental brand as a whole. Continental is the brand I have had the most durability with.

Grand Prix 5000 Rolls across Race Across The West

I installed a pair of the Grand Prix 5000's for my four man team's (https://www.teamsuicideprevention.com) 930 mile Race Across The West event. This is a team time trial type event with at least one rider on the road from Oceanside, California to Durango Colorado riding day and night across the deserts and mountains on the route. Crap happens. About 200 miles into the race during one of my pulls, I ran over a strip of a wood pallet on a desert section and a 1" long staple went clear through the tire. The amazing thing about the Grand Prix is that in my haste to keep moving, I quickly put a new tube in and aired up the tire and went on to finish my pull. I went on to ride to the finish with that same tire. I think that is incredible. I did have a spare Grand Prix tire but didn't have to use even after that significant "flatting" event. We finished the race in 2d 14h 46m. I'm sticking with my Grand Prix 5000's

Smooth roller worth the money

These have performed well in all conditions and are noticably smoother than other tires I've ridden in this price range. Haven't tested in wet conditions. I ride debris ridden urban and suburban roads, and the only flat in 1K miles this far was a saw blade that slashed the tire sidewall to sidewall.

The tires work as one would expect them to work...

I run both the TR and non TR versions on different wheelsets.

After years of running GP4000s and thousands and thousands of miles with only 2 flats, I opted to move to the 5000s this year and forego gatorskins (also a nice tire). I am running 28mm on both the tubeless and tubed tires and they stick amazing in corners, brake better than the 4000s and have very little road noise. They met my expectations and I can happily say they feel a bit better than the 4000s they replaced.

I have also run the Enve SES tire in a 27mm. For comparisons, they SES is more 'V' shaped and falls into corners. The 5000s are more round and allow you to incrementally drop the bike into a corner more consistently. The SES is also a great tire, but the 5000s are my choice moving forward.

I think the regular 5000s are a great value. The TRs are a bit pricey for a tire, but if you need tubeless, you are stuck.

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.

Bang for buck!

GP 5ks are my favorite overall tire. The tan sidewalls seem to go on easier than all black. Fast, durable, feel good, and corner well. Other tires might gain a few more watts or have more durability but these are the workhorse do-it-all. Especially if you're still playing with tubes.

Solid road tire for fast training

I swapped these GP5000s on my bike as my group rides got into the 17+ mph range. I find them faster and they corner better while seeming to handle training volume on mediocre roads pretty well. I opted to go up to 32s to maximize my coverage on chip seal roads and they work well.

Tried & trusted

Use these for everything on my road bike - training, racing, KOM hunting, etc. They have a good combination of high puncture resistance (I only get a couple per year) and low rolling resistance (according to those who test). I always use mine with latex tubes for a springy, light feel. I've tried other tires with even lower rolling resistance, but typically come back to Contis for almost all of my annual mileage.

Fast tire, hampered by weak sidewalls.

Quick and light. After approximately 300 miles of road riding, the tire developed a hole in the sidewall and the tube began bubbling out, ruining the tire. The Continental GP 5000 is undoubtedly a fast tire. However, I can't recommend them because of this durability issue.

Not like the 4000

I ran the 4000 for 15 years without any problems. The 5000 has suffered a few catastrophic failures for me. A couple 1/4 inch tears which I was unable to repair on the road and had to call for rides. After a ton of flats I will no longer be using. Nice tire when it is not flat! Too fragile for the road.

Still a great all-around tire

First a reminder: With wide rims the norm, conti resized the GP5k to be the width it now appears on ON THE RIM. So your GP5k in 28 is the width of your old GP4K in 25 when it's mounted. Second, there is a bit less tread there- something like .2mm. So obviously the tire is really no lighter than the 4K in the same ACTUAL size. Still, I went ahead and replaced one of my GP4ks in 25 with a 5k in 25. I've ridden it through some pretty bad debris-on-highway-shoulders so far and durability has been great. I'm impressed by anyone getting over 2000 miles out of any tire. I don't try. The 4K would always flatten (wear down) at the top of the tread well before the wear indicator got anywhere near replacement depth and that's when I have problems so I replace early. I thought I'd give up some cornering prowess with the smaller size but didn't notice that either. Race last weekend revealed this to be a fast predictable tire, just like the 4K. No complaints, I'm buying more.
