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.

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.
I,ve been using these tyres for a few years now and I am very happy with the quality and the price for the 2 pack was fantastic
Biggest plus is having the confidence that these tires won't flat easily. Have ridden hundreds of mile with these over the years with very few flats. Well worth the money.
Never have I been more confident in the performance of a tire, than in this one. I've been through a lot of them now, and I won't use anything else when it counts...I trust this tire!
Not much more to say really; great tyres, great longevity, great grip and a great price.
Have tried many different tires, these are the best. Very few flats with these and great wearing.
Always happy with continental grand prix 4000s tyres
Great tires! Light, fast, grippy and shipping from PBK was great!
Perfect! As advertised. Best prices on market.
Great performing tires. Low rolling resistance and very durable.
Conti makes good tires. I have them on a couple of our cars and, of course, on our bikes. 4000s are rough (enough) and definitely smooth. I use 700 x 25s are are easy to mount. I know that there are lots of great tire brands, but Contis are tried and trued. ;-)
A grippy long lasting tyre that can be relied upon
This was a first purchase through Probikekit and I'm very pleased. Everything I ordered arrived as advertised and I'm very happy with the GP4000 tires. They offer a comfortable ride but are quite responsive and fast!
Been using these tires for over 2000km Provides good grip even in wet rainy conditions and pretty darn durable. Highly recommended for daily/training usages
These are the third set of Continental tyres that I've purchased during recent years and I am very happy with their performance so far - as I have also been satisfied with the 'older' models of this tyres. I have completed many thousands of kilometres on each of the sets of tyres with no problems. I have been lucky enough to only experience two punctures in all this time neither of which can be attributed to the tyres themselves. I'm sure that the tyres have given a higher level of puncture resistance than the cheaper brands that I used to purchase and, incidentally, Continental do specify some elevated puncture resistance in the information supplied with the tyres. They are hand-made in Germany and that also gives me some reassurance that the tyre is well made and will stand up to the rigours of long distance and trouble-free riding. I'm only a 'weekend warrior' and retired but I'm happy to continue to purchase these tyres and would recommend them to others.
These tyres are grippy and supple but still have good rolling resistance Resist pincturing as well, I supose thts why they are one of the most popular tyres.
Good tyres they are round and black
These tyres are so unbelievably good with a very competitive pricing. Thanks Probikekit
