Continental Grand Prix 4000s II Road Tyre

The Grand Prix 4000 S II is the reference tyre in the road bike market and has gone through numerous stages of evolution. Our flagship tyre now gets a facelift! The discreet bead strip allows us to colour coordinate the tyre to match your bike perfectly without losing the BlackChili tread performance. We have also expanded the size range with an additional 28 mm version added. This provides improved grip in poor riding conditions, increased puncture protection and greater comfort. The proven aspects of the 4000 S II remain unchanged. Vectran™ Breaker for unsurpassed puncture protection, advanced BlackChili Compound for low rolling resistance and sensational grip, and handmade in Germany of course!

Vectran™ is spun from Vectra liquid crystal polymer, which results in a thread that is thermoplastic and has multifi laments. This semicrystalline material is harder then aramid, has five times higher tensile strength than steel and in addition, is also lighter than comparable nylon thread. Vectran™ maintains these attributes even in the most adverse weather conditions.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Continental for life. Gp4000s2 is the best set of tyres i ever had. Great feel, comfortable (for a sport tyre), very good rolling resistance ok, it's maybe a little bit slower than the vittoria open corsa cx but, the puncture resitance is way more reliable ... So, for me they are the best. You can buy it without any doubts. 23 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Continental Rode the Grand Prix 4000 for 2000kms - still great nick. Now on the training wheels. Upgraded to the mark 2, first ride in the wintry Melbourne rain. Total grip. Great quality. 21 July 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wonderful grip and control. Awful Puncture protection / sidewalls Put a set of these on my road bike after 2 years of the same vitorrias after reading great reviews.. Seems like either i'm riding through more puncture zones or i'm getting more pinchers from this tire than i did the old. The 'armour' is in effective and have had three punctures in as many weeks now and am thinking (only on rear). Have been led to beleive that you have to run these at a extremely high pressure to avoid pinch.. MIght be that i'm just too big for them at 16 stone. They do grip really really really really well though and are easy to get on / off. Just a shame i flat more with them than any other tire ! Frustrating when you spend 80 on two tires ! Have only done about 200 miles with them and are already showing signs of high wear ! 08 July 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by The tread is very durable, but the sidewall are too fragile After 3 punctures on the sides, I come back to Michelin pro endurance. I lost 2 tires on 3 because the tire sidewall was too torn to be used. 3 on 3, it is not just bad luck.... I'm disappointed because treads are durable and they offer a good grip. But sidewalls just too fragile too me. 24 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by why change I have been using continental tyres for some time i tried other brands but the quality doesn't match just ordered another set grand prix 4000s put 6500ks on the last set with very few punctures 15 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great All Round Road Tyre Continental GP 4000S tyres, I just love them! Best all round road tyres particularly with the Black Chilli compound to grip in the wet. My wife and I went across the America on these tyres and they were great. Reasonably durable, great grip, long lasting. 23c are, for my weight (75kgs), the best compromise; 25c more comfortable but a little slower. The Mk II should be even better. The GP 4000 four season are good for winter riding and are definitely more puncture resistant but a bit slower. 13 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great set of tyres Got this set of tyres from a second hand user just to try. I was using a pair of Michelins befpre Here is my breakdown of reviews -Tyre has really good grip. Hit a puddle of water plus tight cornering and it still work wonders -weight at 205g, it is pretty light -and the price is affoprdable Will definitely recommend! 03 May 2014

How good is puncture protection?

Hey guys, looking to get a new set of tyres and having never bought a set before I'm only comparing to what came with my Allez - but being a commuter I need puncture protection! how would these stand up? I'm considering the gatorskins as the reviews sound pretty good.

Cheers,

Chris

Answer: 
The GP4 tyres have a good level of puncture protection, but I would consider them more of a race/ training tyre than a dedicated commuter. I would consider the Continental Gatorskin or Schwalbe Lugano as a fairly like for like replacement to the originals, or the Schwalbe Durano or Conti GP4 Vectran as good upgrades.

Answer: 
Hi! Continental GP4000S tyres are reasonably puncture proof for a fast road tyre. It is worth paying the extra for the 'S' version to get the Black Chilli compound and the improved grip in the wet. However, they do puncture particularly on sharp gravel. To put some numbers on this looking back I think I have had a puncture about every 300 - 400 miles. I suggest you look at the Continental GP4000 Four Season for commuting. They are a bit slower but markedly more robust. I rode through a couple of winters on these and I have not had a puncture (yet). I find the 23c tyres (110psi) give me a good sportive and general tyre for my weight (75kgs) balancing comfort and speed. The 25c version is very slightly slower but definitely absorbs the bumps better at the recommended pressure of 90psi.
