Main Features Continental Grand Prix 5000 700x23/25/28C Tire
The new queen of road tires not only inherits all the attributes that have made the GP4000SII a legend, but improves on them.
Based on the technologies already used to date, Continental has managed to optimize them to achieve greater lightness, rolling, comfort and resistance to punctures.
Continental Grand Prix 5000
The relief of an icon of road tires is here; the GP5000 improves in every facet on the best-selling GP4000SII.
It manages to increase comfort and resistance to punctures (+20%) while reducing weight and rolling resistance (-12%).
The complex technology of the compound BlackChili Compound is made only in the German plant in Korbach, because depending on the application of the tire, the formulation is adjusted specifically for that discipline to obtain the perfect balance between grip and rolling resistance.
Special synthetic rubbers are refined with proven natural rubber for high-performance blends; soot particles are added to these mixtures, which in turn are optimized in shape and properties.
The latest polymers, as well as specially developed carbon black particles, achieve superior adhesion, reducing drag resistance by 12%.
LaserGrip: The laser micro-profile structure expands over the tire's sidewalls and provides excellent cornering ability.
Vectran ™ is a high-tech synthetic fiber made from a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP) that is processed into a multi-strand cable; It has enormous tear strength at a very low weight. It is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than an equivalent nylon reinforcement. Vectran™ Breaker does not negatively affect rolling resistance.
The new Active Comfort Technology is a layer of shock-absorbing material made up of elastomers that softens the ride and absorbs vibrations, providing a more comfortable ride and increasing grip.
