Tough technology that can withstand all conditions.
With the Grand Prix 4 Season's DuraSkin™ anti-tear fabric, this tyre is as hard as nails. Featuring in the hellish Paris - Roubaix race, it was later found that riders who had been using this tyre with DuraSkin™ actually suffered less punctures and other tyre related incidents.
The 'carbon compound' featured on the Grand Prix 4 Season, means that it is a extremely wear-resistant tyre, showing minimal signs of damage after many long rides. A double Vectran® Breaker belt under the tread raises the puncture and cut protection to the highest level available on the market. Available in 23mm, 25mm and 28mm versions, the Grand Prix 4-Season is a customisable choice for all types of riders. - T.H
"The Continental GP 4-Season is the standard: full score in all categories! The tyre is lightweight and rolls well. It achieved by far the best result in offering fantastic grip and puncture protection, even in the wet and cold. Not just the top winter tyre." The test results from Road Bike Magazine

I have used these tyres for the last few winter seasons and they are great, hard wearing and grippy. Punctures have been few and far between.

OK, I wouldn't race on these. But for my commute/winter train/utility bike I haven't bothered putting any other tyre on it for years now, these are such good all-rounders. Good grip, durable, not light, but not overly heavy or 'dead' feeling either. Just great reliable all purpose tyres.

I decided to upgrade to winter tyres after having 3 punctures on the same bit of cycle path in the space of a week (basically since the weather turned and autumn made the paths all leafy).
I had been running Panracer Passela tyres which up until now I thought were perfectly fine.
Its not until you switch to a premium tyre like the GP 4 season do you actually appreciate the benefits of them.
A steep section on which my previous tyres always lost traction (even in the dry) I now grip all the way (it was wet today) and the increased efficiency actually makes my commute feel easier.
The bike feels generally more nimble (possibly less rolling resistance - they also come up a bit narrower and lower volume than the passelas of supposedly the same 28mm width). Ride quality isn't unduly affected but then I was running quite high pressures before and the skinny old steel frame makes the ride pretty supple anyway.
Just running my finger over the surface of the tread I can feel its actually a softer and more sticky rubber compound. Wet cornering also feels safer.
I traversed the section of path where all the punctures occurred without issue so although I've only ridden them once I can alerady testify to their attributes.

A great winter training tyre or commuting tyre. Excellent grip in both the dry on those cold mornings and in wet conditions. I'm now on my second set as the others wore out after two winter seasons worth of riding.
20 October 2014 by
Simply must be the best winter/autumn road tyre at a reasonable price, especially with inner tubes thrown in.
My only gripe is that when I entered a first time buyer discount code it was rejected because it was a multi buy(two tyres) and therefor did not qualify for the discount.
Make me think twice about shopping here again, possibly.
20 October 2014 by
Second set of these and they are a great tyre set for autumn/winter. Have used 23/25 combo but they roll great so went for 25/25 for added comfort.
It gets wet and slippy on local lanes and these give me the confidence to keep the speed up!
13 October 2014 by
Great, confidence inspiring tyre in the wet, not so much on the country lanes with tractor mud on.
Roll fantastically well with little resistance, still managing to set Strava top 10s!!
10 October 2014 by
Not used the tyres yet as brought them for the rainy season, but have had good feed back and can't wait to use them.
19 August 2014 by
light tyre for training year-round cycling
It grip well enough for you to ride confidently through the worst weather, and thin and flexible puncture-proofing layers
Very durable. Great grip. Decent weight. Very nice road. The best all weather tire I've owned
21 June 2014 by
As a returning cyclist I was becoming disillusioned with 5 punctures on my first 4 rides! I was walking furrther than riding.
I was advised to try the continental grand prix and (at the risk of tempting fate) I have done a few hundred miles since with no problems.
The tyres are excellent and whereas I may lack experience to compare and contrast them against the 'balloons' the bike came with, I would certainly not change them.
4 June 2014 by
I have used this tyre for a number of years in all weather,fantastic grip and cornering, Would highly recommend this tyre.
19 March 2014 by
Bought these to swap out a pair of GP4000s which were cutting and puncturing badly during winter riding, These are slightly slower (hardly noticeable) but much more confidence inspiring in the wet and as yet (500+ miles) no punctures or cuts. They are tight on the rim so tyre levers are a must.
11 March 2014 by
Good tyres, no issues although I've only done 600 miles on them. Went on ok, grips well. not much to say really - I would buy them again.
3 March 2014 by
Love these tyres on my winter bike. They fill me with confidence in the wet and frosty roads and a reasonably puncture resistant.
Nothing's immune from punctures though. I've suffered mostly with damaged sidewalls with 4 seasons. I'd still be reluctant to move to other rubber though as the strengths outweigh the weaknesses.
21 February 2014 by
These tyres are the best all rounder out there.!!
The quality is 2nd to none, which is what you would expect from a hand made product...In Germany.
The tread pattern is fantastic and the compound is like an F1 tyre.
With the built in puncture protection, you have a tyre that just oozes confidence.
The grip in the wet is amazing and with the 25mm versions you have that extra width to boot.
Wet weather riding has never been so good.!!
17 February 2014 by
This was my first bike upgrade to my audax bike and after much deliberation and research decided to get a set of these tyres. Being a nervous descender and cornerer I was looking for a tyre that would help give me more confidence. These tyres do exactly that these stick to any road surface or condition like glue and my cycling experience has been greatly improved best price on the net via PBK and arrived next day. If you make any upgrade to your bike make sure this is the first purchase you make.

These Conti 4 Seasons tyres replaced a pair of Michelin Pro4 Endurance. Over 500+ miles neither set of tyres punctured though, its fair to say i have probably replaced them early in their wear lifecycle. I'm not that interested in fixing punctures in a country lane thats dark and wet !. I decided on the Conti's not just because I fancied a change but mainly because of their reputation and their high TPI - they promised better comfort. 25C's will fit my bike but not with mudguards for they could not be considered. To improve on comfort further I have paired these tyres with my (reused) Michelin Latex tubes. In terms of fitting they are not that bad; its important to make sure they are warm and you have decent levers as you will need them - these could not be fitted on my Ritchey wheels by hand alone. So far, I have only used them for less than 100miles but on the same roads and conditions they appear umarked so far with no punctures but its harder to see any nicks or cuts as they can appear in the sipes.. In terms of grip then I'm not inclined to push them hard in winter conditions but I'd say they are probably on par with the Pro4's time will tell. That said, my ride is now signficantly more comfortable than before - tar/chipped roads produce much less vibration, road cracks/joints etc are felt much less too and generally they seem to roll much better - thats not to say that they are faster. Overall everything has been dulled or 'damped' but you still feel the road and I'd be tempted to say the bike steers with more stability (is that the tread ?). For me, given the discounted prices, thats a good trade off. A ride on these seems much less tiring now and for that reason i can highly recommend them - lets hope they last !.
16 January 2014 by
Brilliant service. Fantastic tyres. Great price.
11 January 2014 by
I bought these after my GP 4000s' started cutting easily and had a few punctures at the beginning of winter. There is no noticeable difference in rolling resistance between the 23mm 4000s' and the 25mm 4 seasons but the 4 seasons seem a lot tougher.
I would be surprised if these are as grippy in corners as the 4000s' but being winter I haven't really tested them yet and can fault them. They are also great value at this price.
8 January 2014 by
You always expect something good from Continental and these 4 season tyres do not fail to delivery. For me i need puncture resistance and they most certainly have the grip and rolling resistance you can expect from such a premium tyre.
Most definatley a recommended product for anyone...
6 January 2014 by
These are great 3Seasons tyres! For the two or three months the UK has near summer weather it is nice to fit a pair of lighter tyres however, for the remainder of the time I have found the 4Seasons to provide an ideal compromise between coping with horrible road surfaces and weather conditions whilst providing a decent level of comfort/ road feel. Some of the alternative winter tyres feel leaden by comparison. The compound, I suspect, is relatively soft which results in the rear tyre wearing out a bit quicker than some competitors however, I think this is an acceptable trade-off for the benefits enjoyed.

I ride the lunar surface that is Surrey on the weekends plus other rides during the week. In all, I do roughly 300-350km a week on these tyres. These tyres last 4-5 months (rear) and bit longer for the front.
In all they grip well and the only times I slide is if I am unlucky to hit the side of a manhole cover, some diesel, or ice, none of which is the tyre's fault! It is faultless in the wet, I am confident pushing it when everyone else is cautious. I rarely get punctures, and generally only with glass, again not the fault of the tyre. And this generally happens once during a tyre's useful life for me.
The tyre is heavier than others but if you do miles and ride over potholed roads, this is the tyre for you.
23 December 2013 by
The best i had in my 8 year of riding
18 December 2013 by
In my view the best there are for all year riding , just watch the sidewalls .
17 December 2013 by
Perfect, excellent value, good rolling, great grip
16 December 2013 by
Best all condition sportive/winter training tyre out there.
The 25c still gives you great rolling, but has that all important additional contact with the road when conditions aren't great.
At the reduced price these are untouchable. PBK service was second to none as usual - keep up the good work guys
16 December 2013 by
A great winter training tyre, excellent grip and long life. These are not the cheapest tyre but I feel they are worth the extra expense as wear rate is very low and life very long.
12 December 2013 by
Have used 4 seasons for many years now, and always feel confident in wet conditions with these tyres. Not the longest lasting tyres but see me through the winter. The only minus point is when they start to wear they go quickly so keep checking. Good puncture protection, but will puncture if you are unlucky and hit the wrong thing.
3 December 2013 by
I have done about 80 miles on them so far in the wet and dry. So far so good.
Good grip in almost all situations
I still carry a spare inner tube just in case they fail!
1 November 2013 by
I've just bough a second pair of these tyres for my spare bike. They are great winter tyres. Slightly slower than my summer ones (but not by much) but I've yet to have a puncture despite covering about.100 miles a week in all weather conditions and on some pretty poor road surfaces.
I've used other winter tyres over the years but so far these seem to be the best for puncture resistance.
30 October 2013 by
Fast rolling, excellent puncture resistance, confidence inspiring roadholding and looks that won't frighten the horses. For training, commuting, club rides, sportives - basically anything on-road* apart from racing, these are the nuts all year round but especially in the winter
28 October 2013 by
The Continental Grand Prix 4-Season Clincher Road Tyre is a fantastic wet weather tyre, I've never felt so sure footed on a bike in the wet ever. It's slower than GP4000s in general conditions but I bought these for the winter mileage and wet weather. They are so much better than Gators.
26 October 2013 by
I have used Conti's for years and the GP Four Seasons for at least the last four years. Reliable; fast rolling; very puncture resistant especially when used with Panasonic tubes, and last for aeons.
23 October 2013 by
I had these on my commuter last winter and they were great. I've just bought a set for my Pinarello for this season. Excellent grip in the wet. Confidence inspiring in the corners. Very good puncture resistance. All in all a tyre that ticks all the boxes all year round but especially in winter. Highly recommended.
22 October 2013 by
Great tyre, great price and great Services.
15 October 2013 by
These survived Hampshire flints through last Winter. I do not look elsewhere any more.
14 October 2013 by
A good winter tyre for grip and low rolling resistance. However, punctured after 50 meters on the start of an Audax. Changed the tube but did clear a thorn which had penetrated the tyre into the inner tube.
May be bad luck but also had a side wall blow out on these tyres.
4 October 2013 by
Fitting was a little fiddly and I did have to use tyre levers to fit them to my Trek.
Like others I've gone for the 25mm version, which I have found to be very smooth over a variety of surfaces. Very happy with my purchase and looking forward to a busy winter of cycling! Will probably go for the summer versions next year.
24 September 2013 by
Have had the 25mm version of these tyres on my winter bikes in the past and found them to be real grippy and fast rolling. Have not had a puncture (yet). Measured the width of the 25mm old tyre and it came up as 26mm, put on the new 28mm and it came up at 26mm! Eh? Perhaps it needs a bit of time (and use) to flex and 'grow'. The greater width over a 23mm eans you can run them at a lower pressure and get a smoother ride.
31 August 2013 by
The Continental Grand Prix 4-Season Clincher Road Tyre are great. They are possibly a little too fat for road but great sticky, grippy tyres for commuting.
21 August 2013 by
Took these tyres out on their second ride for the Norwich 100. Did 40 miles of small country lanes passing all the guys that had punctured. They held the road well, although it was bone dry. Usually have Gatorskin, but I think that these are worth the small extra cost.
4 June 2013 by
This is my second set of continental 4 seasons, I run them on both my bikes road and hybrid.Continental are not the cheapest tyres but you get what you pay for great road holding and puncture protection.
13 May 2013 by
Excellent year round training tyres. I ride lots of different road surfaces on my training rides (a,b and c roads) grit, mud, leaves etc. Good choice tyres for mixed UK weather.
6 May 2013 by
Works as a deluxe winter training tyre or a reliable race tyre.. itâ€™s harder to puncture than the racier Michelin Pro 3 or the Gatorskin and rolls a bit quicker than the latter. If you can swallow the price itâ€™s viable as a winter training tyre. For competition itâ€™s more reliable than racy.
31 October 2012 by
My cyclocross bike has become my do everything bike. I commute on it, train on it, haul my son's trailer with it, I have even raced on it a couple of times. The GP 4season is the perfect companion tyre. In a 28mm size I can ride down a long dirt road without fearing a flat on the way, I don't get many punctures on the road despite living in a city covered in broken glass, and they are still grippy and roll OK. There may be faster, longer lasting and even more puncture resistant tyres out there, but I haven't found one that does all three things so well.
31 October 2012 by
Only recently installed these in 28mm after reading plenty on forums about the trend to wider tyres and slightly less than maximum tyre pressure. Found them really tight & difficult to fit onto the rims (broke one tyre lever & chipped another and unstuck some rim tape, hence 4 stars), so I don't know how I will go fixing a flat after dark in the driving rain...hopefully they live up to their bullet-proof reputation so I won't have to find out soon. Not a great fan of the brown hatching on side of tyre, but that's minor: my tyres end up getting pretty smashed on Sydney streets. After 500km have had no troubles: roll about as fast as Conti GP4000 in 25mm, and handle well in wet and dry.
31 October 2012 by
I used to get 2-3 punctures a month cycling to work about 22km each way. I weigh 108kg and get about 2000km out of a set of 4 seasons tires, I have been using them for about 18 months and have not had a puncture yet. My son turned me on to these tires, he weighs <65kg and raced competitively he used the 4 seasons tires for training and got 20,000km out of a set.Other tires seem to collect glass which slowly works it's way through. These tires seem to spit it out.
31 October 2012 by
Using the 25mm version, unbeatable in adverse conditions, bullet proof casing, supple and pretty fast. Decreasing PSI in wet allows you to blast away on tricky descents when others start to skid out. I have not ridden the Vittoria Pave since it would be the only tire worth comparing to that is on the same level. Compared to the Gatorskins the GP 4season is more supple and faster. Did 2 rain races on these tires and can only recommend it.
31 October 2012 by
I've been running the 28s on my rear wheel for a couple of months now (paired with a narrower tire on the front) and these exceed expectations. Comparatively light for what you get. Seemingly bombproof. Grip and corner nicely even (especially?) in the wet. These are solid enough in the puncture resistance department that I would recommend running them with a latex tube to decrease weight and increase suppleness. Great rubber.
31 October 2012 by
Forget Gatorskins - they have the reputation which the, frankly, far superior 4Seasons deserve. I often leave these on well into Spring but certainly don't feel as though I am being restricted by a 'winter tyre'. Give them a go and you're unlikely to go back.
