A new era arrivataIl best tire all-rounder in its field brings performance to a new level. Run faster, with more comfort and better puncture protection. Built to give you the best!After 14 years, and numerous special editions, the popular GP 4000 was up to date and born of the GP 5000.The GP 4000 S II is recognized by all as the first of the class to have a coverage with excellent performance and super reliable. Now, 14 years after the presentation of the first GP 4000, the legendary Continental was completely revised and the best result in every single area. Continental says 12% less rolling resistance for the 5000, 20% of puncture protection in the ir and 10% less weight and provides a running pi fluid and comfortable. The compound, Black Chili, patented by Continental was updated with a new formula and with the tread laser engraved to provide a seal in the curve further improved. Continental also declares a surface of the clincher pi aerodynamics with less turbulence.TecnologieActive ComfortUn revolutionary approach to cycling. Technology Active Comfort integrated in the rubber and absorbs vibrations, and the irregularity of the road on which you ride along.Lazer GripLazer Grip makes you one with the road. The profile structure of micro-lasered expands over the shoulder of the cover and offers a capacity curve that is unparalleled.Compound BlackChiliGli tire compound BlackChili reach a level of unprecedented performance. Compared to the previous best compound in the silica active, the tire compound BlackChili offer 26 percent less rolling resistance, a coefficient of friction - which results in the grip - higher of 30% and a 5% increase of the mileage. The technology BlackChili never stops as it is updated continually, and this is a complex and sensitive that the tire compound BlackChili can be produced only in the German factory in Korbach.Vectran BreakerVectran a yarn in the liquid polymer, which is transformed into a thermoplastic compound and a multifilament. This material is semicrystalline pi hard of the aramid fibers, with tensile strength five times higher than steel and also lighter than an equivalent strand of nylon. Vectran maintains its characteristics even in the weather the most difficult.
