Product Description

The Grand Prix 4000S The Grand Prix 4000S boasts global appeal as the best all round race bike tyre on the market. Not only is it fast and super grippy, thanks to its state of the art BlackChili rubber compound, but it is also tough with a healthy tread layer and of course our Vectran‚"Ę anti puncture breaker layer underneath. So for reliability, longevity and all out performance for your race machine, the GP 4000S is the only choice. . The compound How are these figures possible..? The carbon filler particles within the rubber compound are reduced to 1/10th of the size of standard carbon particles. This creates a closer knit with the particles having more points of contact with each other, thus forming a tighter bond, (increasing mileage performance) and also with the road (increasing grip). Also the way in which the particles interact with each other has a dramatic effect on reducing rolling resistance. Black Chili is used by several ProTour and Continental teams as shown o

5.0 out of 5 stars Continental Grand Prix 4000 9 July 2012
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:700 x 23C|Verified Purchase
On a recent ride to France 4 miles in and my back tyre exploded, a friend who i was riding with at the time gave me a spare tyre (the GP 4000), i rode 400 miles with this tyre, had no problems with it and improved the ride quailty some what. On comming home i bought myself another for the front,they have seemed to increase my coasting speed and have much better grip compared to my previous tyres. (Schalbe Luganos). I have since rode a further 600miles with these tyres and are showing little wear. Overall im very happy with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reasonably Tough But Very Fast Tire.. 3 May 2010
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:700 x 23C
This tire for my road bike is by far the best I have tried with a good compromise between durability and speed. I have used this for over 600km rides back and forth between nottingham and derby for a few weeks now and the tire is still working well. with having only 1 puncture so far while trying to catch up a commuter bike on a very sharp rocky road at 20mph but apart from that only few scratches...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best tire in the world 20 Feb 2012
By Ben
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:700 x 23C
This tire is by far the best tyre i have ever brought. I am a keen Cyclist and i do 21 miles every day and used to get flats all the time. I have tried everything to avoid them. I was buying expensive ones and cheep ones changing my inner tube, nothing worked. No joke at least ones a week I would get a flat and that would be if I was lucky. I brought this tyre about 6 months ago and have probably done over 1500 miles on it can't be asked to do the math but it's allot. And guess what not one flat on that tyre still do this day! I am so impressed with this product I am even leaving a review and that's not something I have ever done before. I am just about to buy another one for my front tyre. As it has puncher. Oh yer this tyre is good for speed to i can defiantly tell the different from my old tyre it slightly goes in to a single point so a lot less resentence. And one day cycling to a friend's house and had to take my road bike on a country foot path. Full of broken glass sharp stones dead body's the lot. And my lovely little tyre made it without getting a flat but my other tire didn't shouldent have to have to worry about this happening again. Thank god, will now be cycling with 100% confidence now.
Don't be stupid buy this tire you will not be disappointed. Its cheep and very cheerful hope you found this helpful, and if you don't buy it think about not buying this when you're pushing your bike back home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great all round tyre 19 Aug 2012
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:700 x 23C
I have had these on my summer road bike for 5 years. I changed 1 tyre after 3 years, but the other is still going strong after what must be over 5,000 miles. Good grip in rain and seem pretty quick. I think I have had about 3 punctures over the 5 years. Worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 15 Nov 2013
By Ciaran
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:700 x 23C
Recently built a bike and these were what an enthusiast recommended. He was completely right, they're excellent tyres. After doing many miles of commuting on poor roads I've only had 1 puncture, and that was from a drawing pin and so doesn't really count. Excellent grip, rolling resistance and toughness - probably the best tyre for this sort of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars For me, the perfect road bike tyre 24 May 2013
By keribillen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Black|Size Name:700 x 25c
Excellent grip even in Winter.
Low rolling resistance.
High resistance to punctures (one in 800kms of riding so far, when using Michelin Airstop tubes).
Relatively low weight (205g each).
Predictable handling.

For me, this is the best roadbike tyre on the market for all-year-round fast riding. Have tried others, which are perhaps a tad lighter, but had more punctures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality tyre 19 Mar 2013
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:700 x 23C|Verified Purchase
Not put in hundereds of miles on them yet but no complaints thus far. Would recomend. Had to wrestle a bit to get them on the wheels but that's to be expected. Great tyre and great price too.
