Description

The Grand Prix 4000S II 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 Continental's Vectran anti puncture breaker layer underneath. So for reliability, longevity and all out performance for your race machine, the GP 4000S II is the only choice.

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 opposite.

The all new Vectran breaker belt, developed and patented by Continental, surpasses even the famous puncture resistance of the former leader in this category, the GP3000. The extremely strong Vectran fabrics are more flexible and lighter than all other puncture protection materials. Vectran offers more resistance to cuts than Aramid, is five times as strong as steel and features less weight than a nylon double breaker. It also maintains strength in the wet.

Key Features:

  • Advanced BlackChili compound for low rolling resistance, high mileage and maximum wet weather grip
  • A proven tyre with a facelift, new colours, new design, tried and tested technology
  • New sizes in 23-571, 20-622 and for poor conditions, 28-622
  • Vectran breaker for unsurpassed puncture protection
  • Available colours (23mm): black, yellow, red, orange, blue, green, silver, transparent

Have been using these tires for years. They are by far the best tires I have purchased. The roll great and have had very few punctures, at the most 1 per tire for its life. They grip well even in fast corners, with no concern for slippage. Would recommend.

The go-to race/training tire.

Total:

5

Been using these tires (including the older versions) for years now, and they never disappointed. They are light, yet can take a decent amount of abuse on training rides. They also have great longevity for a race tire. Mounting the clincher folding versions is never a problem, as with some tires that can be nearly impossible to get on the rim. The GP 4000S II is a common sight at all the local races - for good reason.

I have been running Continental Grand Prix 4000's for years now. I used to buy what ever was on sale but found that limping home on sliced tires was not worth it. I continue to wear these tires beyond the wear marks and still trust them. Great feel and long wear make them a winner for me!

Continental Grand Prix 4000s II

Total:

Went from Continental Gatorskin 700 x 23 to Grand Prix 4000s II 700 x 25. After nine months of riding on them, Grand Prix seems to offer the same flat resistance with superior acceleration, handling and stopping. They also seem to wear extremely well. I have 3500 mi. on this set, mostly in the hills, and I'm confident they will make it to a year. Going to the 25 mm wide tire has greatly relieved shoulder and neck fatigue on long rides (60-120 mi.) Well worth a few additional $$ over the Gatorskins.

These tires were a gift for a friend, who will only ride GP 4000 II's. He's a big guy (14+ stones) so he likes 25c tires, and he was especially happy when he read an article stating the 4000 IIs were the fastest tires!

Weak sidewalls

Total:

OK all-around clincher although overpriced and (IMHO) overhyped in the cycling press. Rolls decent, though not as fast as Conti's own Attack/Force combo, Vittoria Open Corsa, or Michelin ProRace. Handling is good, although there are better. Treadwear is very good for a race tire. But the ride is rather wooden compared to other top tires in this price range...and like a wagon wheel compared to Open Corsa. DEAL BREAKER for me is the weak sidewalls. This summer I was riding an ultra event (200+miles) with a guy who lost not one but 2 of these GP4000s to sidewall damage flats. I witnessed one of his flats and his support crew showed me both tires after the event. Both were near new and looked like suffered damage from small rocks. Bad luck? Maybe but no one from my team had any flats riding those same roads on various other race tires. And there are many other reports on web of sidewall issues with GP4000s. My advice if you like Conti's- use Attack/Force for racing as notably faster with similar durability (though less tread life) or Gatorskins for training as almost as fast as GP4000s and (almost) never flat.

I love these tires. The last one that I had lasted for 5,000 miles before a side wall puncture. They are fast on the flat and great on corner. All of my friends own them and I would recommend them to everyone who is thinking of purchasing their next tires.

I recently purchased a set of Continental GP4000S II tires from ProBikeKit and couldn't be happier. I have almost 500 miles on these tires. The tires have excellent grip and low rolling resistance. I have noticed my Strava times are lower on many segments. ProBikeKit's tire price was great, and I received my tires within one week to Los Angeles which was faster than I expected. I've read that some people have said that the tires have so-so puncture resistance, but from the friends I've spoken with who have these tires, they say the GP4000S II tires have good puncture resistance. I'm very happy with these tires.

I switched over to the GP 4000s a few years ago from the Vittoria Open Corsas a few years ago. While the GPs are not quite as smooth, they are almost and they a far more durable than the Vittorias. The stability and relative absence of flats make these the best all around value of any tire I've used.

I've purchased 3 sets of the Continental Grd Prix 4000S II clincher tyres since they became available. The tread last a long time, they corner extremely well, and are about as puncture resistant as possible. What else could you ask for? OK, maybe a lower price. But you'll save in the long run with the tread life. This is the best tire money can buy for everyday training and worry free racing. -smallcog11

Gatorskins to Grand Prix

Total:

5

Switched from Continental Gatorskins 700-23 to Continental Grand Prix 4000S II 700-25. With the lower tire pressure(15lbs.) my overly stiff carbon bike suddenly became much more comfortable, yet none of it's agility or high speed cornering seem to have been compromised. Took it easy at first, to build confidence, but have since done sweeping turns at almost 50 mph, and 180 deg switchbacks at over 35 mph quite comfortably. Bike also seems to accelerate just slightly quicker, both pedaling and descending. No flats so far, despite several significant unavoidable glass encounters, so these seem to have the anti-flat quality of the Gatorskins. Overall a winner ! !

Grippy and light

Total:

5

I'm pleased with the performance of the GP 4000SII Conti clinchers. They are relatively light and grippy, which give me the confidence to take more aggressive lines in the turns at faster speeds. However, be warned, they will definitely wear at a faster rate than heavier, beefier tires such as the Conti Gatorskins which is to be expected given the rubber compound and thinner rubber at the touch points. Perhaps consider doing training rides with the Gatorskins and Crits/fast rides with the GP 4000SII's.

Over 40 years I have tried a lot of different bicycle tires. These are far and away the best so far. Almost bulletproof. I have ran probably 10,000-15,000 Clydesdale miles on Conti GP4000S and SII over the past few years, on two different bikes and have yet to flat. I have had glass and stones stick to the tire (thump-thump-thump) and had to reach down and knock it off, but n air lost. Highly regarded.

they last forever, flat resistant, rols great, BUT, the bead blows off the rim fairly easily when inflating even though the seating of the bead is quadruple checked, and the tire is new or just fixing a flat. I have purchased several pairs and it seems to be a persistent issue. Just check the bead carefully five times and they are great tires.

I am looking for a tire for my IRONMAN Race. I need one that will be fast, but also durable so I don't have to change a flat during the race. After searching reviews, I found this one the Continental Grand Prix 4000S. They installed easy, look great, are very fast and durable so far. Given, I've only been on one 46 mile ride as soon as I got them. The only down side to this company is they took about 10+ to ship to Chicago IL. However, I didn't mind waiting as I was also tuning up my bike at the time and needed about 10 days anyways to get all the other parts ready for biking season here. As this was the best deal I found all over the internet they definitely get 5 stars from me.

very good tire, lasts long mileage. Grip and performance is very good too. Do not over pump this tire because that's when you start getting flats. I weight 190 plus bike and stuff, so total around 207 and I I only put 90 psi front and 95 back - super smooth with minimal rolling resistance and no flats. Get this tire and you will be happy with it.

IMO these are the best clincher tires on the market today. The previous version was excellent and now they are even better with increased treadlife and even less rolling resistance. Their punture resistance is great. And when you can get them for a super price it is an outstanding deal.

Tire has good grip, both wet and dry. The ride comfort is very good. Not as harsh as a gator skin, it has the same punture resistance as a gator skin and it last a little bit less. The trade off is weight savings and comfort for a little bit less life. I ride 11 hours a week and they last me about 5-6 months. 200lbs rider. Thanks

A Winner

Total:

5

During the last 20 years I have ridden many models and brands of tires and for the last few the GP 4000s has been my favorite. The combination of relatively light weight and puncture resistance make this clincher an obvious choice for me. I ride about 100 miles a week and although there have been a few flats, mine are less frequent than those of my ride mates. Oddly, the two or three riders who swear by Continental's Gatorskins flat more often than me. Additionally, the tire's grippiness far exceeds my abilities on all road surfaces. There are lighter tires, there may may be more durable tires, there are certainly less expensive tires, but in my opinion, the GP4000s is a winner.

I had ridden Continental Gatorskins for years and consider them to be outstanding tires. Based on other reviews, I decided to try the GP4000S. The trade-off for the GP4000S is less sidewall protection, but a better ride. I have had absolutely no regrets. They seem to ride well, wear well, and so far anyway, no flats! Last PBK sale I stocked up on the eventual replacement for my GP4000S, which is ... GP4000S.

Black chili compound gives me confidence in wet conditions. Sticks to the road, but rolls almost effortlessly. Averaging 5,000 miles per set with no flats (that will jinx me). I've been on 23 mm tires for sometime. I bumped it up to 25 mm for this set, if for no other reason than a bit more surface contact and a modestly better ride.
