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%.

Features:

  • 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.
 

Specifications:

  • Size: 700 x 23c
  • TPI: 330
  • Ply: 3
  • Bead: Folding
  • Rim type: Clincher
  • Weight: 205g
  • Rec. Inflation Pressure: 110 psi
  • Max. Inflation Pressure: 120 psi


Please note - these tyres have wear indicators in the tread which resemble two indents in the rubber. These are meant to be there. When they disappear it’s time to consider replacing your tyres - Simple really.

GP 4000S Folding Road Tyre - 700 x 23c 4.8 5 67 67
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
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
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
Excellent Value Great tyre, I have had two sets now and not one puncture. Roll great. 3 February 2014
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
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
Great Roller Less rolling resistance than my previous Contis. No punctures or cuts so far 9 December 2013
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

Taupo is an awesome ride and this tyre would be fine. Its a grippy tyre with quite a low rolling resistance to help you complete your lap in record time.

Answer: 
Definitely, they have good puncture resistance, but don't sacrifice ride quality, grip or speed. If you do manage to puncture one, repairing it is very easy and fast because they have Kevlar beads. They seem to be the ultimate road endurance tyre without being so focused on the endurance part that they sacrifice performance.

Answer: 
Yes! I successfuly completed the 2012 LTCC 160km Solo on these, with no punctures and no worries. They are pretty quick tyres for the price. Can't go wrong IMHO.

Answer: 
Definitely, I have used them for the past 3 years without a problem.
They may not be the fastest but I prefer a heavier duty tyre that gives me more resistance to punctures with a good degree of grip on the down hills. Hope that helps.

Answer: 
Sure would! They are a race tyre - meaning they'll give you a fast ride, with awesome puncture protection and road-holding. It pays to wear them in a bit first, by riding them for a few weeks before the event.
