Continental Grand Prix 4000 Tyre
The Continental Grand Prix 4000S II 700c Clincher Folding Road Tyre is the reference tyre in the road bike market and has gone through numerous stages of evolution. Continentals flagship tyre just got a facelift! The BlackChili compound remains in place with Conti with the black 4000 S II adding a 28mm wide version to sit alongside the 23 and 25mm. This provides improved grip in poor conditions, increased puncture protect and greater comfort. Conti have kept the Vectran Breaker for unsurpassed puncture protection, plus with advanced BlackChili compound for low rolling resistance and sensational grip, and handmade in Germany, what more could you ask for. 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. Continental have used their revolutionary Black Chili compound for the Grand Prix 4000 S II. The fact is that Black Chili improved tyre performance in all areas. It makes a tyre to last longer, yet also grip better and roll faster. Continental has also included their tread wear indicators so you don't prematurely replace tyres or even risk using your tyre beyond its service life. The standard for serious road cyclists, the Grand Prix 4000 S II provides long term performance and reliability. Put a set of these on your road bike and start feeling the difference.
