GP 5000 TL

4

Most everything you have read about these tires is true. They are a huge hassle to mount. I put them on Ksyrium elite rims and as far as I can tell, that simply cannot be done without using a lot of force with tire levers and considerable profanity. It is not as bad if you have previously mounted them with tubes on a spare rim, gassed them up and let them sit for a few weeks. But even so, they are just awful to mount. The upside is that they do not flat. Where I ride, there are goatheads everywhere. In the late summer and early fall, you cannot go for a ride without getting at least one or two flats on conventional tires. But I have been riding the GP 5000 TL tires 200 - 250 miles per week for the last 10 months, and have yet to get a flat. For that, I am willing to put up with the hassle of mounting them.

Great Rubber

The Continental GP 5000 TL tires are great! They stick to the road and hold a corner at higher speeds. Having less tire pressure since the tires are tubeless smooths out the ride making the ride more enjoyable.

These tires ride very well and are much improved

5

It's been a while since I've ridden on Continentals. I found their previous offerings (clinchers) to be harsh and its tubulars were great for the velodrome due to their high pressure; however, using the road version was always sketchy in the wet. I found these tubeless tires to be much improved. They are mated to Vision KOM rims where I've put them to use on varied road surfaces. They've worked well, though I haven't put them through their paces on a wet road. Of course, the real issue with tubeless is getting them on the rim and inflating. Since all manufacturer's rims — even those tubeless specific — your results may differ with other hoops. For me, the rear tire went on fairly easily with only the use of a tire lever (plastic) to finish off the mount. That one was quickly seated and inflated with a regular track pump. However, the front wheel was a bit more finicky. It mounted easily using the aforementioned tire lever but just wouldn't inflate. Even using all the tips and tricks I found online I still stymied. Finally, I made sure to push down the tire over the valve opening and wiggle it as I used the hand pump. Success! For some reason you don't get that satisfying "pop" sound when the tires seat on the rim but they are securely beaded to the hooks on the rim. I've put on a couple of hundred miles (300 kilometers±) and they work well. I've tried various tire pressures to find the optimal ride quality.

Last time I buy GP 5000s

1

I have ridden GP4000s for several years and been very pleased with them. I just blew out the sidewall on my GP5000 rear tire after only about two months of riding. I didn't hit anything. The 5000 seems to be a much less durable tire with very little sidewall support. Almost crashed on my way down the hill after it blew out, so I am very disappointed with this tire.

Continental Grand Prix 5000 Tubeless

Went on to the rims like a dream, so much easier than the schwalbe that were previously on. I was able to simply use my track pump. Ridden a couple of times and they feel really good

Best in class

5

Well priced, best performance.. Fitting was difficult, since the bead is the hardest compared to other brands. Did not need any special pump to inflate, and you just need to do the right things with sealant, and off you go in the morning!

Great tyres....once fitted

4

First impression was what have I done....found them almost impossible to fit to my Giant SL1 wheels, had to enlist the help of a friend. Once fitted though I found them to be excellent, smooth rolling, fast and comfortable. Long term the jury's out, just hope I don't have a puncture that won't seal and requires tyre removal/refitting at the roadside!

Smoothest ride

5

Replaced gator skins with these tyres about 4 weeks ago, they slipped on the standard Merida 500 wheels easily by hand, filled front and rear with my usual 90psi. First impression on test ride was the smoothness of the ride, bumps in the road I used to have to brace myself for, the GP5000 just glided over. 4 weeks in, daily commutes and a couple of weekend burns, these tyres are amazing. Highly recommend.
