CONTINENTAL Tire Grand Prix 5000 28" | 700 x 28C BlackChili VectranBreaker
Continental had 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 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, but also enables you to set new best times.
handmade in Germany
Over 100 years of experience in the development and production of bicycle tires make Continental a unique company in the industry. Continental is also the only German bicycle tire manufacturer with production in Germany! Conti tires are built by hand in Germany using unique technologies and materials.
Black Chili Compound
At Conti, BlackChili means above all that grip, rolling resistance and durability are combined at a level that makes you 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 compound ensure better performance and safety.
Continental tires consist 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 would not want anything else!
Vectran is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fiber based on a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran is spun from the molten liquid polymer Vectra and further processed into a multifilament yarn. Spider silk as well as Vectran have an enormous tear resistance with the lowest weight. A higher puncture resistance and lower weight are the advantages of the Vectran breaker. Vectran is more cut resistant than aramid, 5 times more tensile than steel and lighter than nylon thread without affecting rolling resistance. Thus, it 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 road cycling. Integrated into the tire construction, the Active Comfort technology absorbs shocks and ensures an outstanding driving experience.
Lets you become one with the street. The lasered micro profile structure focuses on the shoulder area of the tire and offers you increased cornering grip.
