The new era in cycling, Tubeless too.

The best allrounder in the field, brought to a whole new performance level. Ride faster, more comfortable and with increased puncture protection. Made to make you better.

After 14 years and multiple different remakes, the popular GP 4000 has finally evolved into the next generation.
One claim we can all believe is that the GP 4000 S II tyre was a genuine class leader, a tyre that consistently performed and out-performed when called upon. Now, after 14 years since the original GP 4000 was released, the legendary tyre has been given a complete overhaul and Continental claims, but not limited to tubeless.

The GP 5000 TL is similar to the regular version but adds an airtight liner, a shaped bead (with softer rubber to make fitting easier) as well as a coarser 180 tpi casing. Continental claims they went through multiple versions, attempting to walk the line between a secure fit and easy mounting. Continental's trademark Black Chili compound has also received an upgrade in the form of a new formula as well as laser etched tread that is supposed to provide an even greater cornering experience. The company also claims that the texturing also smooths air flow, thereby decreasing drag.


Technologies

Tubeless
The user-optimized Tubeless System. The TL technology is specifically designed to offer Tubeless for road cycling demands. Easy to install and reliable in use.

Tubeless Bead
Specifically developed the Tubeless bead seals through its unique shape and provides stable fitting on the rim.

Active Comfort
The revolutionary approach in cycling. Embedded in the tyre construction the Active Comfort Technology absorbs vibrations and smoothens your ride.

Lazer Grip
Lazer Grip, to make you one with the road. The lazered micro profile structure expands over the tyre’s shoulder and provides outstanding cornering.

Black Chili Compound
Tyres with BlackChili Compound reach an unprecedented level of performance. Compared to the previous best Activated Silica Compound, BlackChili tyres have 26% less rolling resistance, a 30 % higher friction value (grip) and a 5 % increase in mileage. BlackChili technology never stands still as it is continuously developed. Whether on the road or mountain bike, speed and grip advantages are very noticeable. The complex compound technology is so sensitive that tyres with BlackChili Compound can only be produced exclusively in our German Korbach factory.

Vectran Breaker
For unsurpassed puncture protection. Vectran™  maintains these attributes even in the most adverse weather conditions. Vectran is spun from Vectra liquid crystal polymer, which results in a thread that is thermoplastic and has multifilaments. This semicristalline material is harder then aramid, has five times higher tensile strenght than steel and in addition, is also lighter than comparable nylon thread.

Fast Rolling & Responsive Tyres

I have two bikes set-up with GP5000 TL hoops and I'm chuffed to bits with them. See you be lasting longer than other tubeless tyres I have run in the past 🤗

Low quality

Both of these new tires have a "bump" in the tire. Local bike shop installed and said they seated fine but couldn't get either bump to go away? Shop said I should return these. Help!

Fantastic prices and service!!!

I just received the 2 Conti GP5000 tubeless tires I ordered 4 days ago. Granted, I haven't even installed them but felt compelled to write and say how shockingly good Lordgun's service and pricing are. Their price was WAY below any US retailer (including biketiresdirect.com) but I was a bit hesitant to order as i live in NYC and was concerned about delivery, even with the Fedex option. The tires arrived today as promised and suffice to say I am delighted by Lordgun. Excited to know I can trust this company that offers such incredibly low prices. Thank you!

Expensive but oh so worth it

My first foray into tubeless, and I'm now a convert! Once I'd got my tubelessness sorted (worthy of a 1000 word review on itself), the tyres were hard to fit, but this is a good thing for road tubeless. Once on I was surprised to find they weren't entirely airtight without sealant as I was led to believe they would be. No matter though, I wasn't going to run them sealant-less. I'm happy running my 25mm at 70psi and I'm at least 110kg! In fact, at 80 they feel way too hard. The combination of fast rolling, grip and comfort is exceptional. There are probably tyres that do any one of these things better but I believe these tyres are the ultimate all-rounder.

Exceptional

Very well made and design for tubeless. Not that difficult to install and easy to inflate - I used my floor pump with no problems... Fantastic grip, great rolling resistance and verry confy ride with 75psi - love these tires...
