The Grand Prix 4000S II boasts global appeal as the best all round race bike tyre on the market. Not only is it fast and super grippy, thanks to its state of the art BlackChili rubber compound, but it is also tough with a healthy tread layer and of course Continental's Vectran anti puncture breaker layer underneath. So for reliability, longevity and all out performance for your race machine, the GP 4000S II is the only choice.
How are these figures possible? The carbon filler particles within the rubber compound are reduced to 1/10th of the size of standard carbon particles. This creates a closer knit with the particles having more points of contact with each other, thus forming a tighter bond, (increasing mileage performance) and also with the road (increasing grip). Also the way in which the particles interact with each other has a dramatic effect on reducing rolling resistance. Black Chili is used by several ProTour and Continental teams as shown opposite.
The all new Vectran breaker belt, developed and patented by Continental, surpasses even the famous puncture resistance of the former leader in this category, the GP3000. The extremely strong Vectran fabrics are more flexible and lighter than all other puncture protection materials. Vectran offers more resistance to cuts than Aramid, is five times as strong as steel and features less weight than a nylon double breaker. It also maintains strength in the wet.

The continential grand prix 4000 S II are the best road tires I have ever ridden on. I found these to have the best combination of rolling resistance, puncture resistance, durability, and speed. Found these to be an all-around excellent, dependable, fast tire for a good price. I would use them for a race, and for everyday commuting. These go on sale frequently, so always grab a pair when you can. Only downside is that there is no tubeless option. Dealing with probikekit was great. I went cheap and chose the free non-tracked shipping option, which took a while to deliver. In fact, it was delivered 2 days after the range of dates specified by probikekit. I inquired, and they promptly responded. Would buy from here again.
This isn't the first time I have purchased these tyres. Currently I believe they are the best tyres to suit my riding, giving good tyre life and puncture resistance.
My tyre of choice for the past 3 years straight. Nothing performs better or gives me the confidence like these do. Wet, dry weather, severe gradients up or down...never failed me.
Been riding these for about 10 years now, after growing tired of flats on lesser tires. Rarely do I flat these days (riding/racing 3-4 days/week) and just saying that is a risk I can afford to take. No jinx can change my experience. Not looking to switch since these are respected as the best all-around tires on the road.
My wife and I ride tarmac, remote back roads, and dirt roads. Our rides are generally long and self-supported. We choose the 4000s for durability and resistance to puncture. These tires are fantastic for the kind of roads and long mileage routes we ride. We get very few punctures with our tires, even though we have rocks sticking into them and bouncing off of them on most of rides. We highly recommend these tires.
Felt the difference after changing from 25mm - less resistance on climbs and have been smashing PRs in climbs by 1-2+ mins!!! Highly recommended
I have these tires 4 stars based off friends from my group ride. These guys have been riding for over thirty years. They know what works. I have only mounted them, with no rides. To the touch the rubber feels grippy. I have no doubt that these will be the best tires that I will ever ride.
I've used several tires over the past but have switched over to the Grand Prix 4000 for several years now. Great traction and last a long time.
Been riding Conti tires for ever, but have tried a few other options - Schwable, Vittoria (though not their newest offerings). Had the Conti GP Force/Attack combo before, too, but appreciate the wider options available on the GP4000... and everything else about them. Also love the PBK multi-buy and other discount options available, making a new pair of these a reasonable purchase.
About two years ago I switched from Vittoria Diamante Pro tires to these Continental Grand Prix 4000 S-II after looking for tires that are more resistant to punctures by rocks and glass. After reading many reviews, I settled on these Grand Prixs. I have been very satisfied with the puncture resistance when compared to my old Vittorias. I've gone through the occasional broken glass and many rocks without incident. The GP's seem to last about 1500 to 2000 miles in my mixture of city and country road riding. Their traction is good. I haven't had a problem on the few wet roads on which I've ridden. But, I am a fair-weather rider. I would have rated them a 5, but I had two tires that had some thread-like material unravel from the area around the rim. There didn't appear to be any effect on the tire performance or longevity, but it was a bit worrisome because I hadn't previously seen this on any tire.
