Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II Folding Tyre

The Grand Prix Force is like Continental's legendary GP4000S road race tyre, upgraded with their Black Chili tread and Vectran puncture resistance.

Continental's Black Chili tread compound is a unique mixture of grippy natural rubbers, long-life synthetic rubbers and nanometric carbon particles. The resulting Black Chili tread boasts 26% lower rolling resistance, 30% better grip and 5% increased longevity compared with Conti's previous best Activated Silica Compound.

  • Vectran is a semi-crystaline thermoplastic fabric, which is harder than Aramid and five times stronger than steel.
  • Robust but supple 3-ply 330tpi carcass.
  • Inflation to 120psi.
  • Folding bead.
  • Handmade in Korbach, Germany.
  • Manufacturer's published weight: 205g.

TPI refers to the tyre casing's thread per inch count. The more threads per inch the better. A tyre with a higher TPI will be more supple. Most production bikes come with tyres around 30 TPI. Better bikes with 60 TPI tyres. High-end £1,000+ bikes usually have 120 TPI tyres. Pro racing tyres can be 300-500 TPI.

'Featuring lower rolling resistance, higher mileage and maximum wet weather grip, riders who already use the GP4000S will continue in the knowledge that they are riding the best all-round performance road bike tyres that money can buy. Newbies to the Continental brand will gain from all the factors that make countless professional riders insist on riding Continental tyres.'
