Features & Info

Black Chili rubber compound

Continental's Black Chili rubber compound improves every ride through the use of microscopic carbon nanoparticles to increase traction, decrease rolling resistance, and extend the life of your tires.

Vectran puncture protection

Vectran Breaker is a synthetic fiber based on the natural model of spider silk. Processed into a multi-strand thread, it's lighter, more flexible and protects more efficiently against cuts than a comparable nylon layer. It also does not affect the tire's rolling resistance.

NOT Durable - Lost both tires in under 600 miles

Best Uses:
I had a sidewall cut (1cm) on the first ride out (New York City streets). OK, so that was NYC. The back tire blew out yesterday, sounding like a gunshot while riding on a rail trail as smooth as glass. These tires will let you down. My bike - Trek Domane

Fast fast fast but....

Lightweight, Stylish, Comfortable
Best Uses:
Front and rear cut through under 500km. Soft material picked up 2 metal punctures as well. Always riding with friends on same terrain that had no issues with other brands which are mostly stock tires. Major disappoint on Gran Fondo rice with cut through occurring among the pack. No other flats by 45+ other bikes in this section. For this price...Bye bye Continental

great tire BUT!

Lightweight, Durable
Best Uses:
this tire is $12 cheaper on the low end and $16 on the high end at MEC, thats enough to add a couple new or spare tubes to go with it.

Best Road Tires!

Comfortable, Durable, Lightweight
Best Uses:
After running Maxxis for years, I finally crossed back over to Contis. The GP 4000s are the best tires ever!
