Rolling good

Unlike many reviews I got them on with my hands no problems. Want to go tubeless, then I found you need air fast to get them to pop into place. Track pump doesn't cut it. Use a compressor. Tyres have a nice feel on the road, true to other reviews.

Good tires

4

Continental Grand Prix 5000 TL tires are in a class of their own. Independent tests show them to be the fastest overall non-TT tire. The tread life is good, but the sidewalls are a bit fragile. Unfortunately PBK sent me a twin-pack of the regular clincher version by accident, which I didn't realize until after storing them away for a couple months.

Smooth, fast and quiet

5

The tubeless GT5000 is quite simply the best tyre I have ever used. Riding for over 20 years now, I have gone through a lot of tyres from a lot of brands and the GT5000 is smooth, fast rolling and quiet. Everything you may have read about them being tight is true, I snapped a tyre lever trying to fit them! I know using levers is supposed to be avoided but there's no way they were going on my rims without a lever but they still sealed onto the bead on first attempt and have not leaked since. I'm onto my second set now and while they are a pain to fit, once they're on they're a fast rolling magic carpet ride. Absolutely recommended!

Excellent Tyres... a step up from the GP4000s

5

I've tried many different tyre brands over the years and eventually settled on Conti clinchers - GP4000s for Spring and Summer riding, whilst using the Conti 4 Seasons for Autumn/Winter riding and commuting. I decided to convert to tubeless due the number of punctures I'd experienced in Autumn last year and gave these a go. They were easy enough to fit and inflate first time. Suffice to say, I've ridden through the backend of the Autumn and through this winter on them, along the same routes as before, without a single puncture! They've retained their original air pressure and it results in a most comfortable and responsive ride every time I set off! I'm blown away by the performance of these tyres - 10/10 for me!

Perfect Essentials

Maybe biased, but still the best performing value for money tyre. Yes they are hard to put on the wheel, but well worth it.

very very hard to get onto wheels, but once on, only need a normal hand/track pump to get bead to seal, would buy again, only done 1 ride, so far so good,

Nice but tight!

Second set of these. The first set went on American Classic 420 tubeless wheels. Tried every trick in the book to mount these, ended up using tire levers and a friend (never used levers before on any tire). Aired up perfectly with some Stans sealant and a compressor. There is no hope of a roadside repair (using a tube) with these tires. I rode them 5000km with no flats until bald. Had to cut them off with a knife. Just got a second set for my new carbon 50mm wheels. The good news is I no longer need to carry a tube (useless anyways). I have not mounted them yet. They are currently mounted on some alloy wheels with tubes, very difficult to get on those (apparently this stretches them out). Conti, make these a little bigger!

Continental GP5000 Tubeless 700cx25

First time I've tried Continental tubeless tyres but reviews generally seemed good so thought I'd give them a go. Fitted to a new set of DT Swiss PR1600 Spline 23 wheels. Bit of a struggle getting them on the rims but no more hassle than usual. Previously run with Hutchinson Storm Fusion and getting thme seated was a right pain but these Conti's seated easily with just a track pump and once sealant added have held pressure pretty well. Weather has been so bad last few weeks that they've not been ridden yet so will reserve judgement on grip and feel. Great price for pair from Probikekit and fast delivery.
