Here at ProBikeKit, we have done a Continental GP4000s II review to help you along the way in the bike tyre buying process. The Continental GP4000s II is the latest in a series of tyres that have been the popular choice for cyclists since mid-2007. This tyre stands the test of time and proves itself again and again against other rival rubbers. The technology behind the GP4000s II gives it a sturdy and solid grip in both dry wet weather, you can rely on this tyre to keep you going when times get tough.
In the cycling world, there are two main types of tyre buyer: those who are brand loyal and those who will buy the best tyre for their budget. This is where the GP4000s II can suffer, it isn’t the cheapest tyre available. What it is however, is Continental’s best road racing tyre, and once you’ve ridden one you may become a Continental convert for good (or the near future at least).
