Have't been far on them yet, but going from 25" Gatorskins to 28" GP5000 is a massive improvement in comfort for no reduction in speed and a noticeable increase in cornering/braking control
Merlin ALWAYS has the best prices, fastest shipping and BEST customer service! My one stop shop for cycle stuff! Thanks for being the best at what you do!!! Cheers

Sets the great Continental GP series tyres to an even higher standard. Great all round tyre.
Best Endurance tire on the market
The Continental 5000 tire is a new product that I have just put into service. It's an upgrade of their superior GP4000 S II tires that I've used for years with excellent results. VERY seldom flat, great traction, long wearing.
Changed from the 4000 II to the new 5000 continental. Based in Panama with lots of wet track these tires seem to be the outstanding all weather tires, happy camper so far. Also purchased at unbeatable price
Despite some of the lukewarm reviews I find these tires roll super well and are so confidence building when pushed through corners. Iam looking forward to a few more kilometers onn these wheels to get a better handle on how good they are really are relative to the 4000s.
Bought a 25mm version to replace a damaged 23mm GP4000. True to size, grips well, light (mine weighed 212g). Time will tell regarding puncture resistance and longevity but very happy so far.
GP5000 is the very improve version of GP4000, way much better rolling resistance and with the price deal I got from Merlin Cycles, this is a very good deal!
Great tire so far, very grippy, no punctures or cuts

Very fast tire. Incredible cornering speed. Very good choice. Worth your money.
Upgraded from gp4000 to these as I'd worn them out. Only used once so far and I cant tell the difference performance and comfort wise. Notable difference though is that they are thinner than previous tyres. 25mm same as before but a lot more room between tyre and forks. Time will tell.
25c easy to install on Giant PR2 disc story ck wheels. Haven’t noticed much difference in handling or comfort to the 28c Duranos I had on but there is a very noticeable difference in rolling-these are much faster. Done a couple of hundred miles on them now with no punctures so hoping that continues!
Been a fan of Conti GP4000Sii and read loads on the hype for the GP5000. Of course they are quicker was the reviews.... well they would be, we all go faster on new stuff. Anyway gave them a go as the Merlin pricing with the weekend offer was a no brainer. Well after the hype... they are "all that". They are quick, light and grip like hell. Done 1250 miles with no issues or the dreaded P word. Now for details, they are true to size (Gp4000 were all big) the 28mm are about the same as the GP4000 25mm and the 32mm fit my endurance frame. The tead does look a bit thinner on the wear indicators, but you are buying a race tyre. Mine show no real wear and have not cut up badly either. I'm gonna slam a set on the commuter and hammer them and see what happens, after all grippy tyres for the crap weather is the real test. Update the post when i have put some miles on them. So if you are thinking about it, then get some, even the tests on the internet in labs prove they are a class leader.
Done about 200 km on these tyres, early days but they seem quite fast and easy rolling. Great price.
Quality tires!!! Bought these to mount on my 88mm Carbon HED Track Wheels, they look and feel awesome.
25mm OEM Non Boxed Tyres supplied, quick delivery as usual. All in good order - thanks! Tyres ride well, after a couple of rides they seem to have bedded in and become more supple & comfortable, quick and light rolling... They are true to size and have come up at 26.5mm on 19.5mm internal carbon wheels.
The standard by which all other tires are measured. Just order them, you'll be happy.
Great tires at a great price. Much better than the 4000s!
Read the reviews and though it sounded to good to be true but I must say the rolling resistance is noticeably less than my gp 4000 s ! They really improve the ride and coasting goes on and on l love these tires !!l :-)
Feels so light ang comfortable, perfect rolling resistance.. added by fast delivery of Merlin Cycle 5 stars
True to size, fast and comfortable tire much improved over 4000 and gatorskin, highly recommended
Great Price. Softer ride and very responsive.
Phenomenal tires! Roll fast and are super grippy and inspire cornering confidence.
I am impressed with these tires. Easy to mount and feel great. Its a little early to be positive but they seem to be noticeably faster than the 4000 and way faster than Gatorskins I have on similar bikes.
