One for the Grand Tours..
If you like the reliability of Gatorskins but also want the
performance of a GP4000S BlackChili compound, then this
could be the tyre for you!
Ideally suited to sportive riders, the secret is in the design:
An extra-wide PolyX Breaker protects against thorns, glass and
other sharp objects whilst a continuous 3 ply casing gives 50%
more sidewall thickness without adding much weight.
These features earn the endorsment GT (Grand Tour),
earmarking the tyre for sportives, marathons and multi-day
events. Black Chili compound and the tried and tested Grand
Prix profile offer outstanding grip and handling characteristics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blank Very good tyre!
Used to use marathon plus 700x28 daily but my good do they drag and weigh a lot. Got these and instantly felt the difference. On the first ride out I pulled a good few bits of stone out the tyres and nothing. Every week was pulling stones and flint out and they kept on going. After 4 months tho eventually the rear tyre had enough. The route eventually took its toll on it along with all my wight and got a punture a day for a week. Considering it's taken my wight and roads made out of flint and shards of glass for 4 months I can't fault it. Front one has a few chunks missing I should replace it but it's given me no reason too. ( iv said it now tho) brilliant grip and roll like a dream. Buy them!
