With 12% better rolling resistance and 20% more puncture protection, the Continental Grand Prix 5000 Tyre - Transparent is an exceptional allrounder for road cycling.
|Wheel Size:||700c (622)|
This versatile road bike tyre features the renowned Black Chili compound, which combines the best properties of grip, speed and durability in one compound. It has been created by Continental technicians and continually developed by professional athletes, so riders can benefit from a dependable performance as they clock up the miles on the road. Also embedded in this model's tyre construction is Active Comfort technology, which absorbs vibrations and smoothens out your ride. This means the tyre can deform more efficiently which also improves grip, puncture protection and speed.
Coming equipped with Vectran puncture protection, this high-quality tyre features an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight. Its Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran Breaker also does not adversely affect the rolling resistance. Continental has also kitted out this road-ready model with Lazer Grip technology, which uses a lasered micro profile structure to expand over the tyres shoulder and deliver outstanding cornering grip. This makes it a great choice of upgrade for road riders who want to ride faster, more comfortable and with increased puncture protection, wherever the next ride takes them.

More than 100 years experience in the development and production of bicycle tyres has made Continental a unique company within the industry. Continental is the only German bicycle tyre manufacturer to produce its tyres in Germany. Knowing this serves as a mighty incentive to our engineers and everyone else involved in the manufacturing process to constantly strive for further innovations. In our technology and development center in Korbach, we are constantly developing new revolutionary technologies such as the unbeatable Black Chili Compound and the ultimate Vectran™ Breaker anti-puncture technology, both used at the top end of race sport. These technologies demand sophisticated processes to ensure our legendary end-product quality, and these innovations as well as the new “ProTection” and ”RaceSport” technology for MTB tyres, can only be manufactured in our factory in Germany – “Handmade in Germany”. In order to offer the best tyre for any application, we rely equally on dialogue with our professional racers, hobby cyclists and everyday bike riders. This results not only in high-end products for top sports applications such as the new Podium TT or the revolutionary downhill tyre “Der Kaiser”, but also tyres for everyday use like the new innovative combination EcoContact/EcoContact Plus as a companion to the latest e-bike trend. As a global player, Continental also maintains high-tech production facilities outside of Germany, where Continental tyres are produced for you with an equal degree of care and dedication. One thing all Continental bicycle tyres have in common is that they are developed in the technology center in Korbach, Germany, where they also undergo strict inspection. Our heart and soul is behind the phrase “Handmade in Germany”, with all of its products and technologies.
