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.

Comments:

I'm not sure what happened with the other reviewer. I would have contacted the company, as those were probably defective. I do about 40 miles a few times a month, and have had these on for over 2 years with no problems and surprisingly little wear. I roll over broken glass every time I ride and have never had a flat with these. If you EVER get flats, you owe it to yourself to get a better tire. Isn't it worth a few extra bucks to have piece of mind, and to not have to spend time getting greasy changing a tube? Puncture resistant tires pay for themselves easily because you don't have to buy tubes for flats! I'm running the 23mm at 110 psi (I'm 180lbs). Next time I'm going to order the 25mm and run them at 95psi, for a slightly more plush ride and less rolling resistance (yes, 25mm has less rolling resistance than 23mm). Highly recommended
