About this deal

It’s good to have it there (any extra visibility through the early British springtime is a bonus, in my view), and it manages to achieve its aims.

Under the tire's tread section, we still see only 2 layers of casing material, which is the same as on the 5000 S TR. History tells us that the 'only' justified expensive tyre were ten year old matured hand crafted by Belgium hobbits in darkened caves tubulars at the 'pro-level'. For an all-season tire, the tread puncture resistance comes in lower than expected, and we see this as the main shortcoming you should be aware of. Spider silk like Vectran™ has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight: Exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bicycle tire as a puncture protection insert.

I paired the tyres with a wide rimmed deep section wheelset (Hunt 50mm Carbon Aero) where they sit nice and flush with the wide rim, making for reduced rolling resistance and improved traction when cornering.

Choose the GP5000AS for maximum protection in all-weather conditions, complimenting Conti's already established GP4Season as a tubeless alternative. A Vectran™ Breaker is lighter, more flexible and effective against cuts than a comparable nylon breaker. The sidewalls are much more robust and now have 4 layers of 110 TPI casing material instead of the 3 layers on the 5000 S TR. Continental used their experience creating winter tyres and and added improved durability to the Grand Prix 5000 AS tyres to give you the best balance of performance and value over the autumn and winter months.Continental Grand Prix 5000 AS TR details and specifications The tread pattern and compound are said to be more effective in wet weather. We hand build wheels in the UK with meticulous attention to detail and when we are not doing that, we are out riding with you. When run with suitable tyre pressures (I prefer around 70-75psi for a 28c tyre under my 80kg-plus build), I could push hard and trust the rubber would stick to the road. After 14 years and multiple different remakes, the popular GP 4000 has finally evolved into the next generation. The thread count used here mirrors the S TR and even racier TT TR tyre, but, as previously noted, the GP5000 AS TR uses an additional ply of it to improve durability.
