The best allrounder in the field, brought to a whole new performance level. Ride faster, more comfortable and with increased puncture protection. Made to make you better.
+12% better rolling resistance (speed) : +20% more puncture protection : -10g lighter (25-622) : improved comfort
- BlackChili compound: It’s all about how you mix it With our unique tread compound, which is produced only in Germany, we have revolutionised the sport of cycling. With the legendary BlackChili Compound we have answered the eternal question of the best balance of grip and rolling resistance for cycling. Regular test wins confirm the measureable and noticeable advantages for the cyclist, established in the laboratory and on the road. The latest polymers as well as specially developed carbon black particles and filler materials guarantee unique performance
- Active Comfort : The revolutionary approach in cycling. Embedded in the tyre construction the Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations and smoothens your ride.
- Lazer Grip, to make you one with the road. The lazered micro profile structure expands over the tire’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering.
- Vectran™: The benchmark in puncture protection Vectran™ is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran™ is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran™ is spun from the melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Spider silk like Vectran™ has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight: Exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bicycle tire as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran™ Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran™ Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.

Worst set of tyres
’ve always used continental 5000 but This kind is the worst set of tyres I have 9 flat in probably like 15-20 rides they got flat with the minimum or smallest thing on the path, they are very fast, smooth and light, I’ve use them for a race the good things I got flat when I’ve finish it.
A sublime ride
A big fan of Conti’s 5000 tires so I decided to get a pair of the transparent to spiff up the look of my all black bike. Since the transparent sidewall comes by elimination of one thin layer of black chili compound, I was a bit hesitant due to comments about sidewall punctures. I ordered a pair of 28’s and they arrived in 5 days to the US. Fantastic! Immediately put them on and did an 80 mile mountainous ride. I put 75 psi in each tire (seems to be the trend for lower pressures) and set off. The road “feel” was sublime approaching a tubeless ride with far less road vibration. Is there slightly more flex with the thinner walls? Probably. Less life? Probably, but worth it!
Continental GP 5000 Transparent
Lovely looking tyre and roll nicely as well. Just put these on my winter bike and noticed the difference straight away. Feel really nice on the road and the tan sidewall really stands out. And really easy to fit.Lush!
Beware of the size
I can't say for other Continental tire models, but this GP5000 with brown sidewall (transparent) is a lot norrower than the label. I initially bought 25c, which measure about 23.5mm (on my 17c rims at 100 psi). I finally bought 28c, which measure about 26.5 mm.
Always buy my conti’s at ProBikeKit tires are great and you can’t beat the price
Upgraded my Gatorskins on my single speed bike with some GP 5000’s. So far so good they are very comfortable & I’m sure help me ride faster
Top Quality Clincher from Conti
This is not the first pair of Conti 5000's I have bought, but it is my first pair with a transparent (tan) side wall. Not yet installed on my 'summer bike', but will they be in time for the warmer, dryer weather. Based on experience, the tyres roll well and offer good puncture resistance (Conti's Black Chili compound). I feel confident in all weathers; dry, damp and wet. Not the lightest of tyres but they are very good in terms of weight. Easy to install/fit. The roads where I live, in the north east of England, offer a mixed range of surface finishes; from fairly smooth to pot-holed and 'dog-rough'.... however, the tyres offer a good ride. As a side note, I do not ride tubeless so cannot comment with regards this set-up. The Conti 5000's are a top tyre, although I loved the 4000's, and I would highly recommend them.
