About Road Race Tyres
These tyres are for racing style bikes that use clincher/hooked rims, these are the most common fitment and hook onto the rim and require an inner tube. There is a wide choice of tyres within this category and the right choice is important. Lighter tyres will accelerate quickly, but will be more prone to punctures so getting a balance is extremely important. If you require a tyre for all round use look for something with puncture protection, an average TPI(Threads Per Inch) and average weight. If you require a fast tyre and speed is the only thing that matters look for a low weight folding tyre with high TPI. If durability is your priority and speed is not so important look towards the puncture resistant tyres and consider going for a wider tyre, these will be less prone to punctures and offer a bit more comfort. For wet road conditions a triple compound or winter tyre is a good choice, these use a softer compound on the cornering surface to maximise grip.

Continental is the only German bicycle tyre manufacturer to produce its tyres in Germany. Knowing this serves as a mighty incentive to our engineers and everyone else involved in the manufacturing process to constantly strive for further innovations. In our technology and development center in Korbach, we are constantly developing new revolutionary technologies such as the unbeatable Black Chili Compound and the ultimate Vectran™ Breaker anti-puncture technology, both used at the top end of race sport. These technologies demand sophisticated processes to ensure our legendary end-product quality, and these innovations as well as the new “ProTection” and ”RaceSport” technology for MTB tyres, can only be manufactured in our factory in Germany – “Handmade in Germany”. In order to offer the best tyre for any application, we rely equally on dialogue with our professional racers, hobby cyclists and everyday bike riders. This results not only in high-end products for top sports applications such as the new Podium TT or the revolutionary downhill tyre “Der Kaiser”, but also tyres for everyday use like the new innovative combination EcoContact/EcoContact Plus as a companion to the latest e-bike trend. As a global player, Continental also maintains high-tech production facilities outside of Germany, where Continental tyres are produced for you with an equal degree of care and dedication.

Magazine reviews for Continental Grand Prix 4 Season Fold. Road Tyre (2) and Tubes
Review from Bikeradar
Looking like the Conti Grand Prix 4000 it's based on, the GP 4 Season is has more protection with winter work in mind. It has the same bead-to-bead slash resistance of Continental's Gatorskin, plus two Vectran breaker strips to keep sharps from penetrating the tread.
It's harder to puncture than the racier Michelin Pro 3 or the Gatorskin and rolls a bit quicker than the latter. Conti claims good tread life, and if you can swallow the price it's viable as a winter training tyre. For competition it's more reliable than racy.
Works as a deluxe winter training tyre or a reliable race tyre
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Will increasing the width of these tyres make any noticeable difference to the ride comfort?
What is the disadvantage of increasing the width? Rolling resistance increased?
However, if you're seriously compromised on ride harshness, you first need to check that there's enough clearance under the fork crown and rear brake arch on your frame, to accomodate the extra bulk of the larger section tyre. Bear in mind that 5mm radial clearance around the tyre is a minimum safe clearance, to prevent road-chippings & other debris from stopping you - dead.
And I want to know its valve length too.
Nothing fancy, but since the 4 season is best suited to winter training or sportifs with wet conditions and/or road surfaces likely to cause a risk of punctures and is not particularly light, there's not much point putting something lighter than a standard tube inside.
2 inners for £10?.....nothing cheap about that.
What am I missing?
Had my first flattie with these tyres, probably only done 1000 km and they are not looking in good shape. This is a nice race tyre and handle great in the wet, but are not recommended for general commuting on city roads.
Do i have to stick to 45 as this is whats on, i would rather go narrow but cant afford new wheels - would these fit and how narrow can i go on the same wheel.
Any help really appreciated - cheers
The GP 4S is a great tyre, but I'm not sure it's available in that section. If so, it's a good choice for handling canal towpaths, NOT deep muddy ruts on Bridleways!
I've just fitted them to my hybrid they're an excellent pair of tyres/tubes.
These tyres didn't blow up as big as I had thought that they would and fitted just fine.
Just 26.5mm width and 30mm height.
Tread not as deep as I would expect.
