Details

Continental's Grand Prix 4000 S boasts Conti's Black Chili rubber compound for 26% less rolling resistance, 30% more traction and 5% more wear (than previous Grand Prix 4000 tires). This makes for one of the fastest tires in the peloton. Even better, the GP 4000 boasts a tough Vectran sub-tread for exceptional puncture protection, a 330-tpi casing for a velvety-smooth ride and tread-wear indicators to eliminate guessing. If you're looking for the ultimate road tire, you've found it.

Continental's Black Chili rubber compound significantly improves wear, traction and rolling resistance through the use of carbon nanotechnology, microscopic carbon particles in the rubber. These mold better to the ground and have more points of contact, which gives the tire more grip. And, because the compound matrix is formed of more particles, which are connected more tightly with each other, the tire lasts longer. Plus, the smaller particles are more flexible, too, which improves rolling resistance.
Vectran is a liquid-crystal polymer woven into the Grand Prix 4000 as armor against cuts, abrasions and impacts. It's also incredibly flexible to conform to the road's contours enhancing traction and feel. Finally, Vectran resists fatigue caused by repeated flexing, which lengthens the tire's life.
The Grand Prix 4000 features these wear indicators. When they disappear, it's new-tire time.
