The Grand Prix 4000S II boasts global appeal as the best all round race bike tyre on the market. Not only is it fast and super grippy, thanks to its state of the art BlackChili rubber compound, but it is also tough with a healthy tread layer and of course Continental's Vectran anti puncture breaker layer underneath. So for reliability, longevity and all out performance for your race machine, the GP 4000S II is the only choice.
How are these figures possible? The carbon filler particles within the rubber compound are reduced to 1/10th of the size of standard carbon particles. This creates a closer knit with the particles having more points of contact with each other, thus forming a tighter bond, (increasing mileage performance) and also with the road (increasing grip). Also the way in which the particles interact with each other has a dramatic effect on reducing rolling resistance. Black Chili is used by several ProTour and Continental teams as shown opposite.
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.

I've been using GP4000s for the last few years I find them to be hard wearing, reasonably puncture resistant, easy rolling good quality clincher tyre. As they are really meant as a race tyre they are more than good enough for a fast sportive rider

The difference between these and my previous 23c Specialized Espoir Sport is astounding. They help soak up the bumps without fuss and actually make me cycle faster on Britain's less than perfect roads.
Well worth the investment so far

My new bike came with Vittoria Pro Rubino Slick and the bike didn't perform well at all. So I ordered these and what an upgrade. Instantly I got the bike I wanted. Precise handling, excellent grip and also speed.

Bought first set nearly 2 years ago, been great though the back was wearing a bit so I thought I’d replace.
Reason I like these tyres:-
1) Easy to fit on my Carbon Fibre clinchers – so I don’t need tyre levers (which always worries me on carbon wheels – also, don’t make my mistake when I fitted the first set – make sure you get the rotation arrows in the right direction)
2) Light weight
3) Spin up well
4) Long lasting
5) (Fingers crossed on this one!) seem to be puncture resistant
6) Good value
7) Look good
I can only recommend, also great service from PBK – arrived next day

Replaced a pair of Continental Grand Prix 4000S 23c with some 4000S II 25c. A slight increase in comfort with the extra volume but only very slight, rolling resistance and speed still good. They are the same Black Chilli compound which is vey sticky. Wear isn't badly compromised either.

The tires look very nice bike.
Performance is also very good.
Excellent grip, the faster the speed. The best choice!

Continental's GP4000's have long been my favourite tyres, and these S 11's, the latest version, are the best yet. They are light, grip well, have substantial puncture protection, and they look good too.I wouldn't use anything else.

Badly needed some new tyres and with so much choice it was hard to know what to go for. I came across these tyres which looked pretty good in terms of durability and performance. I fitted them last week and went out on a fifty miler this Sunday. Tyres felt good and should last some time. Good price paid for pair. I would buy these again

These can be purchased on-line folks for 17euro less than advertised here,not being critical of Probikekit,have purchased here previously but it does pay to 'shop around'.

Conti GP 4000S was known the best but 4000S II got better!!

4 punctures in 2 weeks prior to buying these. No punctures in 2 weeks with them and the grip is noticeably better too!

Great tyres. They are really grippy giving you confidence to hit the corners fast. Low rolling resistance and they are light too. Helped me take full minute off my 10 mile local route. Really impressed.
