Continental GP4000S II Folding Tyre
The Grand Prix 4000S II has become the benchmark tyre for others to aspire to. With super sticky grip, on wet and dry roads – thanks to its advanced BlackChili compound - and puncture protection it’s the best all-round road performance tyre out there suitable for racing, triathlons and sportives.
Award winning tyre
Voted the ‘People’s Choice’ road tyre by readers of road.cc this versatile folding tyre is light yet strong in every department and is designed in 20, 23, 25 and 28mm widths. If you want more comfort and improved grip in poor conditions choose one of the wider options.
This tyre has won countless other magazine and website tyre test reviews for its excellent combination of speed, grip, puncture protection and durability.
Revolutionary BlackChili compound
Continental developed its revolutionary BlackChili compound in their German research and development labs mixing natural and synthetic rubbers in a unique formula. Compared to their previous best tyre compound, Continental say BlackChili tyres have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30% higher grip value and see a 5% increase in mileage durability.
The high 330 TPI (threads per inch) in the weave of these tyres result in greater flexibility and low rolling resistance making your riding more efficient.
The Vectran™ Breaker is an extra, high-tech thermoplastic fabric layer under the tread for ultra-lightweight puncture protection. Vectran has a great tear resistance at a very low weight making it ideal for protection whilst remaining flexible.
