The new reference standard for racing tyres and the successor to the highly popular Grand Prix 3000 now has 20% less rolling resistance and an even lighter weight.
The new puncture resistance!
The all new Vectran Breaker: belt, developed and patented by Continental, surpasses even the famous puncture resistance of the former leader in this category, the GP3000. The extremely strong Vectran fabrics are more flexible and lighter than all other puncture protection materials. Vectran offers more resistance to cuts than Aramid, is five times as strong as steel and features less weight than a nylon double breaker. It also maintains strength in the wet.
Vectran is used in extreme sports applications such as sailcloth for offshore competition yachts. It is also used by NASA to make airbags for absorption during lunar landings.
The new compound
The black GP4000 tyre options feature the revolutionary Black Chili compound whilst the coloured options use advanced Activated Silica Compound (ASC) to increases the handling threshold and reduce the rolling resistance of the Grand Prix 4000 compared to the previous ASC compound. A new anti-cracking formula prevents UV light from damaging the compound and increases the mileage performance.
The new tread features new tread wear indicators to help riders gauge the life of their GP4000 tyre. On the one hand you don't lose mileage performance by prematurely replacing the tyre and on the other you don't risk safety by using the tyre beyond its tread service life
Please note, that on some instances these goods may not be delivered in the manufacture's packaging, but will still have a full UK warrenty.
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.
