Continental Grand Prix 4000S II Tire
Vektran and Black Chili? Sounds like some kind of explosive...but the only thing blowing up will be your riding performance. Continental's Grand Prix 4000S II road tires not only sport a layer of Vektran technology to increase puncture protection, but they feature Black Chili carbon particles that reduce rolling resistance, maintain traction, and reduce wear. Add in amazingly supple 3/330 tpi sidewalls and you've got a magical tire that's light enough for racing, tough enough for training, all with an exquisite ride quality that will plain amaze on every ride. And the icing on the cake are the sidewall color options so you can raise your bike's aesthetic game to new heights.
  • Black Chili tread compound provides less rolling resistance, more grip, and more miles
  • Vektran technology provides a superlight puncture-resistant layer beneath the tread
  • 3/330 tpi sidewalls deliver a superbly supple ride
  • Colored sidewall options ensure you can complement your bike's color scheme
  • 225 grams is racing or training light

    Comments about Continental Grand Prix 4000S II Tire:

    After doing some research, these tires consistently received high ratings from various cycling websites and publications. So, I tried them out. This is my 3rd set in 5 years. I can say that, as advertised, they roll much noticeably better than the stock tires that came on my bike. Your results might be different but, I haven't had a flat since switching over to them. I do a lot of A group rides and the last thing you want is to get dropped because of a flat. GREAT tire.

      Great tire. Very smooth ride and you can feel the low rolling resistance. Has been more durable than I expected with few flats. I did have to replace one when the sidewall was damaged and I didn't want to continue riding on it. I like 700x25 size for my road bike although they run big.

          Comments about Continental Grand Prix 4000S II Tire:

          I bought these when I decided to upgrade the stock wheels and tires on my Trek. The tires are install easily, are light, and roll fast. The rolling surface has also proved durable on the rough roads around Boston.

          So far I have blown through the sidewalls on 3 of the four tires I've bought. The first flat I blamed on some roadside debris, the second also happened when I was riding in the shoulder for a moment. Each of these tires failed with fewer than 50 miles on them. The third also failed quickly, probably under 100 miles, and I was riding on a protected bike path when the sidewall blew out.

          I have a fourth tire but I doubt that I will ever use it. I'm going back to the stock tires as they are a little heavy and slow but at least they get me through the ride.

              Purchased and installed these tires 4 weeks ago, this past weekend rode in a triathlon in a rural area of PA. About the worst conditions you could imagine to race - twisty, winding, rolling roads with blind curves and sharp S-turns. Oh, did I mention that it poured rain the whole way through the race? And to make it even more fun, PennDOT tarred and chipped the roads on the bike course the week of the race! However, I can say these tires performed beautifully in those conditions! The tires stayed under me the whole race, through some very scary turns, and best of all, NO PUNCTURES from the chipped-roads! Finished with the best overall bike time in the race, and I can't say enough about the quality of these tires! Will definitely be sticking with these Grand Prix's for a long time!

                  The tires were just installed so there is no way I can give a complete review. I look forward to giving them a great checkout. The install was pretty much what I expected for a quality tire requiring plenty of thumb and finger rolling to get them into their last snapping lock. I expect they will make me as happy as my last Continental tires.

                    This is probably my 3rd set of these. I use them for training and racing in triathlon. They're stable and hold the road. Plus best price anywhere especially if you get them on the Nashbar sales where you get another 20% off the already best price.

                    Used to be my favorite tire :(

                    from Lancaster, PA

                    Comments about Continental Grand Prix 4000S II Tire:

                    This used to be my favorite tire, but I've had bad luck with three of them this season. Did something change? The first one had a sidewall cut. Fine, I did ride through a gravel section. The replacement only had a single ride on it and after a duathlon I found a split and bulge in the sidewall. There was a bridge gap I hit at 40mph, so that's probably to blame. The front tire was fine and showed little wear for 1000 miles. I inflated to 115psi the night before a triathlon and race morning the tire was deformed and rubbed against the fork crown. That was the final straw.
                    So I am back to using Gatorskins for training and Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX for races.
                    I had great luck on the previous versions, but it's getting expensive using the 4000S II as a do-it-all tire. I'm 180lbs and haven't had these issues with another tire.

                    On a positive note, they are puncture resistant and I really like the compound. They roll well and I haven't flatted due to a puncture in thousands of miles. I'll give them another shot when the Open Corsas need replaced.
