The Continental Grand Prix 5000 road tire is a great all-around tire that gives you puncture protection, comfortable ride qualities, and without sacrificing speed. The Black Chili compound gives one the best balance of grip and rolling resistance for cycling. Patented Vectran puncture protection makes for top puncture resistance and extremely low weight. Lazer Grip enhances cornering ability. Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations for a smooth comfortable ride.

This Special Edition tire comes with all the technological features you know from the regular Grand Prix 5000, plus a lush cream sidewall. 

Features: 
  • Lazer Grip: the lazered micro profile structure expands over the tire’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering
  • Vectran Breaker: Spider silk-like Vectran puncture protection has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight
  • Active Comfort Technology: absorbs vibrations for a smooth and comfortable ride.
  • Handmade in Germany 
  • Special Edition lush cream sidewall with TDF licensing.

Continental Grand Prix 5000 Road Tire (Black/Cream Skin) (700c) (28mm)
Got two, count 'em, TWO rides on these gorgeous tires before the sidewalls became discolored and blotchy, the beautiful cream color ruined by what appear to be reddish brown stains. Riding only on pristine roads in daylight, no rain, did not ride off-road or through any mud. Have no idea what's going on. Extremely disappointed. They seem to be very well made tires, except the sidewall just looks like hell. The tires are literally four days old and they look like they are 4 years old.

Very good tires, but the cream color discolors from heat, (I live in Texas), quickly.

Only a few hundred miles down but even at my ability I can feel these are better than the original pair they replaced. Are they really that much better than a pair of Ultra Sports? Depending what you pay- maybe not so worth it for people like me if you expect roughly the same time between punctures and wear life. However, some of the best money you can spend on your bike is for good fast tires so in that sense I'm rather pleased with them. The cream sidewalls complement my bike rather nicely so that does also tilt my opinion. The appearance hasn't suffered from the elements and wear that badly in my experience but it does show grime pretty visibly. If you're like me you might feel motivated to clean your bike more frequently as a result.
