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."

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

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.

Amazing tire

The tire itself is amazing and one of the lowest rolling resistance tires out there. Have pretty much switched over exclusively to this. The performance is phenomenal and looks good too. Love the cream color. Biketiresdirect is also amazing. Customer service has always been stellar and shipping is always fast.

GP 5000 is the Best tires in my opinion.

This is the tire that you are fancy, if you just want to ride around or even race! Usually racing tires won't last, due to their compound rubber technology. But this handles really well + cornering with tires is really safe, they grip so well that you don't even worry about .

Superb for Ride The Rockies

Bought these specifically for RTR. 6 days of biking is all conditions ( except snow). Zero issues, no flats. Initial install on Bontrager Aeolus Elite 35 was very easy. Saw lots of these tires on other bikes and all 3 in our groupused these. Flawless performance 475 miles in 6 days and 29,000+ feet of climbing.

I went back to these tires after trying multiple other brands and found these just last longer and are significantly better for a puncture protection. They typically ride on gravel roads and show no scarring after hundreds of miles.

Excellent Race tires once you get them on!

These have been my go to tires for a while now. Never had a flat with them and they feel really slick and fast. Putting them on is a bit of a hassle but with decent tire levers its not a big deal.

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.

Great All Around Tire

The Conti GP5K is probably today's go-to standard for a basic all around tire. I don't race, so I can't comment on it's performance under those conditions. But for the average rider, these tires roll very smoothly, are relatively grippy, and have pretty long tread life. I have them on all my bikes.

Best road tire

I have used Contis for years and have made the transition to their tubeless. During the pandemic I tried another brand (supply chain) and they didn't have the same road feel, and durability was also less. I have continental tires on all of my bikes

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.

Great tire to ride on Tough tire to mount

I'm only giving this tire 4 stars because they were a bear to mount on my daughter's Mavic Cosmic wheels. Just for reference we bought the 25s. I'm not sure if the larger 28s would be any easier but I kind of doubt it. She's good at changing flats (especially for a 14 year old) on the road but if she does gets one either I'll have to come change it or she'll need help from someone fairly strong.

After struggling for a bit and almost breaking my tire spoon I ended up attempting to prestretch them by pulling as hard a I could with my feet and hands for about 10 minutes. Only then could I mount them with a tire spoon. Usually I can get other non-tubeless tires mounted by hand.

She's got about 200 miles on them so far and enjoys the ride quality and grip.

With any luck these will last the spring and summer CRIT season.
