CONTINENTAL Tire Grand Prix 5000 AllSeason Tubeless 28" | 700 x 28C BlackChili VectranBreaker black/cream
With the Grand Prix 5000 AllSeason Tubeless Reay (5000 AS TR), Continental is launching a new endurance runner. The strongest version of the 5000 series creates confidence and protection in all weather conditions through special adjustments.
Just like the high-end racing tire 5000 S TR, the 5000 AllSeason TR is also manufactured with a tread with only 2 instead of 3 layers of fabric. This ensures better adaptation to the ground and reduces rolling resistance. Thanks to the Vectran Breaker puncture protection layer and the non-slip Black Chili tread, the reduced number of layers does not have a negative effect on puncture protection. The black chili compound was specially adapted for the all-season for better wet grip and higher mileage. The sidewalls consist of 3 layers and have an increased sidewall protection layer compared to the 5000 S TR.
In accordance with the state of the art, the 5000 AS TR is also compatible with hookless rims. However, it can still be ridden with classic clincher rims and also with tube .

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.
The TL technology is specially designed to adapt tubeless to the demands of road cycling. Easy to assemble and reliable in use. Specially developed, the tubeless foot seals with its shape and ensures a stable hold on the rim.
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.
NOTE: Tire pressure must not exceed 5 bar (73 PSI) on hookless rims. Continental recommends using at least 30 ml of suitable tubeless sealant for the initial assembly.
