Now updated with two of our Vectran anti puncture layers beneath the tread, the GP4Season is tougher than ever. Combined with our tear resistant Duraskin mesh from bead to bead and max grip silica rubber compound, the GP4Season utilises all of the best Continental protection materials in one classy workhorse of a tyre. Used for the tough Paris-Roubaix classic bike race in a tubular format, this tyre is best for high mileage riders both for summer or winter useage. Lightweight design also makes it an ideal choice for early season races.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MattHolden grippy + durable
used through hot and dry to cold and wet, living up to the 4 seasons name, no problems with grip under any conditions except for pushing the limits in the wet whilst breaking while turning, had the back end out in a little unexpected drift... (wouldn't have expected any tyre to hold grip)

These are great all round tyres. With all the puncture protection of Gatorskins but with enough of the GP 4000 to let you hustle along if you need to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skr4785 Excellent tyre
Normally ride with the go4000s. Bought the 4 seasons as a winter training tyre. Definately feels like there is a more cushioning and grip when run at 95psi. I think this tyre is awesome, has given me more confidence riding in the wet without the expense of losing too much speed, I averaged about 0.7mph slower over an hour today and that was in the pouring rain and with the wind blowing compared to the 4000s

Rated 4 out of 5 by VeloAmato Winter racing training tyre with fair puncture ressistance
The best tyre for training, sportives or even race (cobbles, strada bianchi etc.) that combines durability and race feel: low weight, good grip in all kinds of weather, low rolling resistance and good puncture resistance (no tyre is puncture proof, not when you live amongst flint i Denmark). Cost benefit? The price is a bit annoying, but they are long lasting and saves you a couple of punctures - after trying most brands I keep returning to 4 season. PS: 7'th nov. 2013: CR's newsletter with "bargain" prices got me looking in - but 30£ is by no measures a bargain.
Schwalbe Durano & Plus are fine winter tyres as well - the Plus even more puncture resistant, but not so smooth, not so grippy. Tyres are also a matter of temperament.

Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent tyres at reasonable price
These are extremely durable tyres. I ride on them for 3 years and the punctures are less than the fingers of my left hand (I still have 5 fingers on each of my hands :-). I spoiled two of these on extreme braking from high speed when rear wheel locked, but I managed to get home without puncture. I have only two punctures on these tyres. once I went trough metal lamella thrown on the road and It torn my rear tyre and this caused a puncture. The second time I got puncture was when riding on not fully inflated tyres and hit a sharp stone. This caused a puncture on the tube, but there was not signs on the tyre, so I was able to continue riding on it.For the period I have a bit more than 10 000 km. The size that I use is 700 X 25. the manufacturer recommended max preasure is 8.5 bars. I run them at 8.0-8.2 bars. My weight is 95 kg. The tyres are quite light ant they run faster than I could imagine in the beginning. They keep me on track in any conditions (wet or dry, summer or winter) and I may relay on them on my long weekend rides on badly paved Bulgarian roads. I would recommend these to any amateur rider, or those willing to make long rides without punctures. I will definitely go for another set of these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Poor sidewalls
The sidewalls on these tyres seem to be different from the normal GP4000. I have had two separate tyres come off the wheel as they age, the first on a DA wheel and the second on an Ultegra wheel. I have reported this to Continental who initially responded but now have gone quiet. Extreme caution, will not buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous The best Training tyre on the market
I`ve owned a pair of GP 4 seasons for 10 months now and covered 3500 miles on them and they are still going strong.
I have experienced one flat which in all fairness was my fault as I was busy chatting and rode right over a quarter of a brick sized stone this nipped the tube on the rim.
The tyres offer fantastic grip in all weathers the are really comfy compared to full on race tyres.I previously used Gatorskins as a training tyre but I feel the extra money spent on these is well worth it.

Have been running GP4S's since August 11 and can't fault them for durability or longevity. My bike came with Bontrager R2's fitted and though they were great in the dry they were decidely iffy in the wet. Finding a conti rear last me around 2000-2500miles, fronts seem to last about twice as long (90kg rider and pack). Have had 5 punctures since I started using them, 3 pinches when I've hit potholes or debris in the road during wet or dark rides (my fault) and 2 other punctures caused by a piece thick of wire piercing the tread and a 2" woodscrew through the tread (not sure any tyre would protect against them). Never had a piece of glass glass or sharp stone pierce the protection layer. Grip in the wet is very reassuring and I can sling them through fast corners in the dry with great confidence. For year round commuting, club rides and sportives I haven't ever felt the need to try anything else since I started using them.
