Our Vectran and Black Chili technologies have been radically applied to this uncompromising race tyre set, specifically developed for the front and rear wheels of race bikes. The new GP Attack benefits from its special Black Chili version that gives the streamlined 22mm front tyre more grip with lower rolling resistance, compared to the previous GP Attack tyre.
The new GP Force is a powerful rear wheel specialist and with its 24mm section combined with a fast Black Chili compound, it gives excellent traction and road handling thats second to none.
Both tyres are made with Vectran puncture protection, a protective belt of super strong and extremely lightweight material beneath the bead. Wear levels can be easily monitored via indicators in the tread, details that show professionala are at work!

Smashing product from Continental for the serious club - open race roadie.
Black Chilli compound make these tyres super tacky and individual tread allows them to roll really smooth and fairly noise free on your rims.
The extra 1mm of width on the rear tyre allows you to put down that extra power and redeem as much traction when sprinting for a finish line or the odd 30mph sign!
Great tyre for descending too as the front and rear widths really compliment each other and give you added confidence.
I've ridden 3 sets of these over last 3 seasons and although I do love them, however the side walls tend do wear out before the actual tread.

I have these tyres fitted to my road bike and I love them; they grip really well inspiring confidence round the corners, puncture resistance appears good (use the correct pressures) and they just zip along the road with little resistance. I have covered nearly 2000km with mine and even the rear tyre appears to have plenty of tread left - buy them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tyres
Came to these from Schwalbe Ultremos R1 which are good fast tyres but the side walls and thread began to disintegrate. Got these as replacement. The tyre construction seems more substantial than the Schwalbes but not heavy.
First impression riding is that these are more compliant, meaning they soak up rough surfaces a bit better. Grip is great, just done a crit in the wet and felt secure in the corners. Haven't had any punctures yet. I wouldn't say these are any faster or slower than the Schwalbes but I would but buy these over the Schwalbes because they appear better constructed and are more comfy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice tyres but wear fast.
I have now owned two pairs of these tyres. They are lightweight and feel responsive. They also have excellent grip, giving confidence in wet and dry. However, I have found that they are not particularly durable. I got about 2000 miles out of each set. The side walls are also prone to cuts. On my Shimano wheelset they are a very tight fit, proving difficult to fit without resorting tyre levers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I bought these tyres earlier in the year, after suffering 3 flats in 4 rides. On my first ride with the tyres fitted I couldn't believe how much smoother the ride was, the bike was completely transformed! Now, 6 months on, I still haven't had any punctures and the ride is as smooth as ever. Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I had about 5 punctures in 600 km up to now, but all were my fault: snakebites caused by too low air pressure or big stones on an unpaved road at high speed. With the right pressure, I drove through glass several times an nothing happened.
They can be easily dismounted and even mounted manually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tyre, really notice the difference in handling with the 22c front 24c rear compared to 2x 23c. Done 2000k in very hot to very wet and cold with no punctures - the rear has started to wear, but will probably get another 2000k out before it needs replacing!
