The Best All-Rounder, Now in Cream Sidewall — Grand Prix 5000 Tdf LTD Road Tire

The lush cream-colored sidewall tire from Continental is finally here and it comes on the impressive, high-performing GP5000. Adorned with the official Tour De France logo, the Continental Grand Prix 5000 Tdf LTD Road Tire comes with all the technological features you know and love from the Grand Prix 5000, in a luxuriously sharp package.

love continental grand prix 5000 tires , hate the color of sidewall

they don t make any better tires then the continental g p 5000 but the special edition that is advertised as a cream colored sidewall is more of a muddy gold color. Whoever says that is a lush cream-colored sidewall is color-blind . I bought a set of these tires to go on my ivory carbon fiber frame specialized tarmac that has a red strip and black lettering and the side wall on the special edition tire that was advertized as cream colored looks bad on my bike. So I m stuck with this ugly tire that does not go with my bike till it wears out because of the advertisment that it was cream colored which is not right .

Vive La Tour!

Been riding these flat-free for over 3000 km. Lives up to reputation as the gold standard of bicycle tires. Fast, durable, and great looking on my Trek Emonda. 25 mm work for me; would love these even more if available in 28 mm. Would suggest pairing these with latex tubes.

Retro look to these Continental Grand Prix 5000's

Love the Continental Grand Prix 5000's and Bike Tires Direct had a sale on these with the "Retro" side wall colors. My cycling buddies thought they looked cool too, great deal and as always a great set of tires.

Looks great on black bikes

Snag a pair of this TDF version at a lower price than the regular black ones. Like many said, harder to put on my Bora WTO rims but sure looks good. looks like the cream is just painted over the sidewalls. I'm assuming it adds some extra protection to the sides?

These ride well but may not have the longevity that I am use to

I've ridden Vredestein Fortezza Senso for years, but they haven't been available the last couple of years. I see that BTD has them in stock once again. So, I tried the Grand Prix 5000. They feel very nice, but I seem to be picking up cuts and flats more often. So far I have 2,200+ miles on them which isn't too bad for the sale price that I was able to get them at.

Side wall

I bought this on sale and so didn't have to pay the premium over the usual black version. I thought the side wall was too "bright" but it aged over time to a nice darker tan-wall colour. There were some black bleeding into the side wall (like grease mark) as a I got it out of the box, which was a bit annoying but hard to notice once you actually start riding---docked one star for this.

Beautiful ride.

The retro look sidewall caught my eye. I've used the Conti 2000 23s for a while and I like these 25s better. More comfortable ride. I use 65# in the front tire and 90# in the rear to take some of the roughness out of Oregon chipseal road surfaces. That pressure (altough not recommended) works very well to take the sting out of rough roads. I weight 175# and have no problem with my 1/4 mile rough gravel driveway. But deep pot holes are to be avoided, in any case. Plus these tires roll very well. No feeling of sluggishness. In the past I have used VeloFlex 120 gram 23s on the same wheels and wouldn't go back to them due to the rougn ride.

Nice tire tho seem slightly different than the standards version

I ride the standard GP5000 tubed and tubeless, love them, and decided to purchase the cream TdF version. A few initial observation caught my eye that others have noted in various reviews online. The cream sidewall appears to be some sort of rubber paint on top of the standard black sidewall. Handling it side by side with a standard GP5000 in 25mm, the cream version casing feels noticeably stiffer. The standard casing feels very thin , supple, and flexible, while the cream feels sturdier, almost more like a TL version. I�m not sure if it�s a result of the coating or if the casing differs. I do also notice the standard casing is smooth, while the cream has a more pronounced woven texture slightly showing the thread pattern. Taking some approximate measurements, the cream sidewall thickness is 0.15mm more than the standard. On the scale, it also weights 30g more. The tire bead on the standard also appears slightly thinner and smooth, while the cream seems thicker and coated with a tackier black rubber. Most notably, the cream version is significantly tighter to mount on the same rims, almost to the point of being offensive. The standard version mounts with average effort. That aside the tread appear identical and the cream color is slightly on the yellow side but looks nice.

Beautiful

I've been riding 4000's and now 5000's but on vintage bikes, a non-black sidewall would look so much better. Just got two sets and the first set is on a bike (1961 Gitane) ready to hit the road, and I wish I could show you a picture... I think they look great. Yes, I know a lot of enthusiasts would like wider versions -- perhaps those will be offered later

Great, same performance as GP5000, awesome look

Great tire,

compare with GP5000:

- same performance

- although it is slightly more expensive, but if you have a black frame, the look of the ascent yellow worth the extra money spend

First time user and very impressed!

I have been cycling on and off for maybe 30 years and have tried out and stuck with several brands of tires (Schwalbe, Vittoria, etc) and these seem to be the fastest tires of them all. I am so impressed, i bought several pairs for all my bikes. Highly recommend.

Great looking and performing tire

The GP 5000's are great tires. Great grip, excellent rolling resistance, and very durable. I have averaged about 3500 miles out of each set. The tan sidewall looks great on my bike as well.
