How to do something even better: the Grand Prix 5000 from Continental
Continental was faced with the difficult task of developing a worthy successor for the Grand Prix 4000 S II - for the tire that continues to dominate the performance tests. The challenge was to top it off with rolling resistance, high mileage, speed and puncture protection.
The developers at Continental have put one special person at the center of these considerations - you. It is simply your time that you spend on the bike. Whether it's for training or competition. Be it in the rain or in the sun, cold or warm. Be it to set a new best time or simply to switch off on the house round.
The best all-rounder in the field on a completely new performance level. Drive faster, more comfortably and even more puncture-proof. Made to make you better. The Grand Prix features an advanced BlackChili compound for lowest rolling resistance, high mileage and maximum wet grip. The LazerGrip lets you become one with the road. With ActiveComfort, the GP 5000 absorbs shocks and provides a superior driving experience. The VectranBreaker is made of a high-tech fibre and now offers even better puncture protection.
