Tires grip well, feel lighter and feel like they provide less rolling resistance. Definitely an upgrade to the 4000s. Would highly recommend these new tires for anyone who is currently riding the 4000s. These are worth the extra money for the ride they provide
I just installed a 25mm GP5000 up front, replacing the Panaracer Race A Evo* I've been running for most of the winter. It felt a little faster right away, as was expected, based on lab testing and the fact that it was so supple right out of the box (compared to the 4000). Performance on the road was very good as well. Turn-in was smooth and predictable, and grip in turns was especially confidence-inspiring (and these days my confidence is not easily inspired). I did feel it was a bit vague and not optimally stable at higher speeds, but less so than the 4000 (which is why I stopped running that tire up front). Still, not as stable as the better tires in this regard, such as the Corsa G+, Race A, and Power Competition. Ride quality is noticeably improved as well, at least with small bumps and high frequency chatter. Whether that is a function of the new elastomer layer or the supple casing, it's a welcome improvement over the somewhat harsh-riding 4000. Also welcome, and not, is a meaningful reduction in size from the 4000. Great to have the 5000 run closer to it's stated size (and other tires), but good luck figuring out the optimum size for your bike now. As a reference, my 25mm 5000 measures just over 27mm on my 19mm internal rims (whereas the 4000 measured nearly 29). Unsurprisingly height (and volume) are reduced as well. Let's hope that puncture-resistance and lifespan are not, and remain as excellent at they are in the 4000. Regardless of that, these are clearly going to be the "race" tires to beat this year. *Great winter tire. Excellent ride quality and grip, reasonably fast, and very puncture-resistant (both tread and sidewalls).
Cost peformance is one of the best and comparison with GP4000S II this tyre is more comfortable.
Continental have really got hold of their sizes with the GP5000. 25mm means 25mm wide. 28mm means 28mm wide. Not like GP4000 SII 25mm were 28mm wide and 31mm tall on 17mm inside width clinchers
Great looking, easy to put on (even with false finger nails) & fast to ride. Seemed to reduce road vibrations but that might just be because my last contis were nearly threadbare! Happy with product.
A great improvement on an already brilliant tyre. Its not the fastest, lightest, grippiest or sturdiest, but it is the best all round tyre that does better than average in all categories. Absolutely worth the money.
One of the smoothest tires I've rode on ever. 10/10 would recommend to a good friend
Have ridden for a few weeks and they are an excellent tyre.. Highly recommend it.
So far, so good. Seem to be more robust than the 4000S.
Purchased the 32mm tyres. Fitted to Tarmac SL6 Disc on Roval CLX32 rims with 21mm internals, the tyres measured up at exactly 32mm!!! The old GP4000's 28mm came in at 31.5mm on the same rims. The GP5000's look great and feel fantastic so far (and the Tarmac SL6 Disc frame has heaps of room, I think it could take 36mm tyres)
Amazing! When I read that it was going to be just like the 4000s ll's but lighter, faster, more puncture resistant and grippier, I didn't believe it. But now that I have ridden them, I can't help but accept that they are. From just using these tires, my average speed raises from 1-2 km/h! Taking on the local switch backs at top speed, I feel even more confident that I won't slide out and I beat my PR by 10 seconds after a light rain, then by 45 seconds on a dry day! Highly recommend, defiantly a good investment. I will be riding these for many years to come. Very impressed.
Improved rolling resistance, lighter, still durable... these are the best all-round road tyres.
