Thanks to its DuraSkin anti-tear fabric, the Grand Prix 4 Season holds up under extreme conditions. In the Paris Roubaix race, the Hell of the North, cyclists equipped with DuraSkin enhanced tyres have the fewest tyre related problems during the race. Incorporating Conti's special wear resistant carbon compound, the tyre is characterised by very good mileage performance as well as excellent adhesion on wet roads and at low temperatures.
Vectran is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran is spun from melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Spider silk, like Vectran, has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight – exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bike tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.
Tyres with DuraSkin sidewall protection have to be able to roll with the punches. They are used under the harshest conditions. The high quality polyamide fabric protects the tyre casing against the worst conditions. These tyres stand out thanks to their brown sidewalls
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.
About the Continental brand
More than 100 years experience in the development and production of bicycle tyres has made Continental a unique company within the industry. 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. One thing all Continental bicycle tyres have in common is that they are developed in the technology center in Korbach, Germany, where they also undergo strict inspection.

Magazine reviews for Continental Grand Prix 4 Season Folding Road Tyre
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.
Could you please tell me what the weight of the 28mm version of this tyre is?
I have a bike with well worn Kenda K-196 700×26c tyres which I want to replace with a pair of Continental Grand Prix 4 Season 700C tyres - fed up with the punctures! As this is not available as a 26C, would the correct size be the 700x25C ?
I have a pair of 700 x 25c 4-seasons and they are first class - don't forget to change your computer settings from 26 to 25 or you will get an incorrect reading!
Would a 25mm tube or 28mm tube be best?
Hope this helps.
Without going into masses of detail, high TPI numbers generally mean a thinner, lighter tyre with lower rolling resistance. The downside of this is that the tyre may be more vulnerable to punctures.
Quick search on the web revealed that. Hope it helps, it certainly helped me as i never really looked at TPI numbers for tyres.
Thread counts have the most impact in road uses, where tire pressure is higher. According to bike tech Mike from REI's Seattle store, "A higher thread count casing makes (the tire) suppler and more resistant to punctures and makes it a little lighter."
Thread counts for a road clincher start at 60 tpi (threads per inch) and go up to 320 tpi for higher-performance clinchers or tubular tires used in racing. Other tires have thread counts as low as 20 tpi. Check the specs tab on REI.com product pages to compare different tires.
higher the TPI usualy indicates the more supple and tyre (i.e. more threads = less rubber) - it also indicates that each thread is finer and as a result more likely to be lighter.
