The Continental Grand Prix 5000 is a tubeless all-around performance tire that gives you durable and smooth performance on the road. The perfect balance of grip to rolling resistance to mileage is struck with these tires thanks to Continental’s legendary BlackChili Compound. Refined synthetic materials with the addition of soot particles optimize both shape and surface properties. The BlackChili Compound process and technology is so sensitive that Continental will only carry it out at their plant in Germany. TL technology is designed to meet the needs of cyclists who prefers tubeless tires. They are easy to install and reliable on the road. The tires can be sealed properly thanks to the tubeless bead seals for stable fitting on the rim.
These tires are not only high-performing, they are comfortable for the longest days on the road as well. Active Comfort Technology is embedded in this tire to absorb vibrations from the road and give you a smooth ride. Cornering is improved with the Grand Prix 5000 as well, in part thanks to its Lazer Grip technology. This includes a lasered micro-profile structure that extends over the shoulder for all-around traction. To top it off, these tires have brilliant puncture protection. A liquid-crystalline polymer called Vectran protects the wheel without reducing rolling resistance. This technology gives your tires massive tear resistance at a very low weight.
