CONTINENTAL tire Grand Prix 5000 28 "| 700 x 25C Special Edition Tour de France 2020
The Special Edition with all technological features, the regular Grand Prix 5000.
In the new version with a cream-colored side wall and the official Tour de France license.
For Continental it was important to develop a worthy successor to the Grand Prix 4000 S II, which still dominates the performance tests.
The main focus was on reducing rolling resistance, increasing mileage and speed, and improving puncture protection. In addition, there was also the comfort aspect, which makes you less tired on each of your tours, be it for training or in competition. The harmonious composition of all these properties not only makes this tire better, it also enables you to set new records.
handmade in Germany
These tires are among the highest quality made by Continental. They are sewn by hand in the Korbach factory and set special standards in workmanship and quality.
At Conti, BlackChili means above all that grip, rolling resistance and durability are combined at a level that one can almost believe in magic. Continental simply uses the very latest and best technologies. The latest polymers, soot particles and fillers optimized down to the nano range guarantee the unique performance of the BlackChili compound. It revolutionized the basic conflict between grip and rolling resistance. Approx. 30% more grip and a 26% improved rolling resistance compared to the silica mixture ensure more performance and safety.
Continental tires are made entirely of this high quality rubber compound. Thus, the tires can be worn down to the carcass without losing the first-class properties of the rubber!
Anyone who has ever driven a tire with black chilli wants nothing else!
Vectran ™ is a synthetically produced high-tech fiber with a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran ™ is a liquid crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran ™ is spun from the molten liquid polymer Vectra and processed into a multi-fiber yarn. Spider silk as well as Vectran ™ have an enormous tensile strength with the lowest weight. A higher puncture resistance and lower weight are the advantages of the Vectran-Breaker. Vectran is cut more resistant than aramid, 5 times more tensile than steel and lighter than a nylon thread without influencing the rolling resistance. It therefore offers the ideal protective layer for the tire. Vectran was developed for airbag systems in the automotive and aerospace industries.
Active Comfort Technology
The revolutionary approach to racing. Integrated into the tire construction, the Active Comfort technology absorbs vibrations and ensures an outstanding driving experience.
