GP 4000S Folding Road Tyre - 700 x 23c

CONTINENTAL GP 4000S Folding Road Tyre - 700 x 23c


Club Price$63.99


A fast rolling clincher road tyre with excellent puncture protection properties at a great price - there's little wonder why the Continental GP 4000S is our Most Popular Road Tyre.

Sharing the same construction as the GP4000 but with a new BlackChili special compound, the 'S' stands for Sport, Special, and Schwarz - the german term for black.

The all black Grand Prix 4000 S catches the eye with its big silver labels. It matches every high-end race bike perfectly and can do more than just look good.

With the new Black Chili Compound rolling resistance is reduced by 26%, grip is increased by 30% and mileage is increased by 5%.


  • New Black Chili compound
  • Black Chili gives a lower rolling resistance and higher grip
  • An ideal secret weapon for the season's main objective
  • Vectran anti-puncture technology, tougher than aramid
  • Striking silver sidewall logo
  • Made in Germany

The new compound: The carbon filler particles within the rubber compound are reduced to 1/10th of the size of standard carbon particles. This creates a closer knit with the particles having more points of contact with each other, thus forming a tighter bond, (increasing mileage performance) and also with the road (increasing grip). Also the way in which the particles interact with each other has a dramatic effect on reducing rolling resistance. Black Chili has been used by several ProTour teams since 2007.

Vectran anti puncture protection: The all new Vectran breaker belt, developed and patented by Continental, surpasses even the famous puncture resistance of the former leader in this category, the GP3000. 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.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 67 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I won't consider anything else for durability and quality These rock. Have had probably 10 or more of these over several years. Last for ages and I can't remember ever having a puncture with one. 5 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast rolling, good grip, reasonably durable. This is a good value tyre for either events or training. Grippy, lightweight and reasonably durable / puncture resistant. 29 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only road tyre I ride. What is there to be said. Durable, comfortable and fast. These are replacing the Zipp Tangentes I have on my race wheels when they wear out. Ignore the reviews that criticize the two dimples in the tread pattern, they are wear indicators, once you can't see them, get another set of this most excellent set of rubber/ 3 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value Great tyre, I have had two sets now and not one puncture. Roll great. 3 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best of all worlds The only problem I've ever had with these tyres was after I had to ride through a patch of large stones, one of which must have made a little tear in the side-wall fabric (heard a very loud PING at the time). A few days later the tube popped out through there. End of the tyre? No way! Glued a piece of plastic bottle on the inside covering the hole and it's (almost) good-as-new! This tyre's combo of grip in the wet/puncture resistance/low rolling resistance and long wear is unequalled in my experience commuting 200+km per week. 27 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tyre & good value for money These tyres were recommended to me by my cycling guru. I am not disappointed! As usual prompt postage by Tordepo 7 - thank you 23 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Roller Less rolling resistance than my previous Contis. No punctures or cuts so far 9 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for money. I have used these tyres before and find them to be great value for money. I have them on both my racing and training bikes and find them smooth and quiet. (and fast?) 30 November 2013
