AndreBought these in the sale for winter cycling, Merlins prices are unbeatable. Really impressed with them, they hold the road in the wet and roll well and were easy to put on, would recommend for the winter and I`d expect they will be just as good next year in the summer
TOMThe best tyre for long distance. Resistant to punctures and excellent rolling.
Mr RRace on these in early spring until the roads dry out. There are better performance tyres out there but the minor increment in performance is of no use if you're at the side of the road with a flat....
Mr DennanArrived to ireland in 2 working days, have only gotten out on 2 40km ish rides but both were in the rain and the levels of grip whilst cornering is astounding, really gives alot of confidence to enter corners faster than my previous Vittoria rubinos.
Mr HazanGreat traction for the Israeli winter, where occasional rain raises oils to the surface, and where the sidewalks have many fallen leaves.
Mr shaharReliable tire. Very safe for a wet road, very good protection for a flat Attractive price
Mr saldise kortaNeumáticos de calidad súper , precio muy bueno en Merlyn y envío y entrega correctos.
Mr RyanFantastic tyres, great grip in the wet. The 28mm hugely improve ride comfort.
Mr PankiwBought as winter tyres. So far no punctures
JakoThe best tyre to get you through the winter months. Outstanding grip and puncture protection.
Mr CopestakeThese tyres are a must for winter commute in Northern Ireland, especially in the back country lanes. I previously owned a pair of these GP 4 season tyres, but I had to replace due to wear and tear after 2 years of winter abuse. never had a puncture. I have used these again for the last 2 weeks in rain and roads covered in shale and stones, still going strong. 10 out of 10. Worth every pound.
Didzis KlavinsMany other tires lose traction in rain at +3 degrees. With those I can almost carelessly cross wet tram tracks without a risk of wipe out. I haven't experienced any punctures either.
Mr KokocinskiCan`t fault these tyres for winters use, decent rolling resistance and durable.
MichaelTop quality tyres, bought these to have when my present 4 seasons finally need replacing. Nearly 5,000Kms. on them and not one flat. These are my go-to tyre as I have not found anything to come close to them. Great price and service as usual.
Mr HallGrand Prix 4 season tyres are super puncture resistant. I would recommend highly!
DJCGreat autumn and winter tyre. Provides the reassurance of better grip (both in the dry and wet) as well as decent puncture protection. These tyres tend to last me at least two UK autumns and winters.
Ms McDonaldJust what I ordered. They are great tires for hotter climates and are virtually flat proof.
Mr T ManoelExcelent tyre and grip, nice performance.
P ShieldsSeem lighter than my usual winter tyre the ever reliable Gatorskin, so hoping these offer similar level of puncture resistance. Time will tell.
pkultraGreat tires. Bought for fall/winter riding and happy so far.
DAVIDMy go to tyres for the last 4 winters. Hard wearing highly puncture resistant and Great in the wet. What more do you want? Ah yes...... Best price at Merlin!
Mr MaultbyBest tyres ever, with our 2 bikes we used to get punctures every few weeks, now we've had 1 puncture in 2 years since using them with more miles ridden.
VincentExcellent tyre for winter use. Sticky, looks nice although a little noisy. Gives confidence in the corners.
Mr BlakeChunkier version of the summer tyres which recently ripped on local country lanes. Have done a couple of 50 mile mass start events on them so far, comfortable and good on roads of very mixed condition.
MichaelThese are my goto tyres and this was a reorder to replace my old ones which had 7,300Kms with no flats.
Mr TaylorReally nice tyre, wish I'd put these on from the start, good tight fit, feels really solid on the rim and strong construction. I will buy another of these for the front wheel in time. All bikes should have one of these on the back wheel. Hand made as well so really good value. Strong robust tyre.
Mr aounMaybe the best tires for a road bike, I've been buying them for the last 5 years, they're super reliable. Whatever the road condition, or the pavement. They last a lot. They have a bit more friction, but they're reliable for long rides.
johnChange from Cont. 23 Gatorskin to 25 4 Season for winter riding. Seems to ride slightly smoother with better road contact on bends. Would recommend width 25mm. Was OK to install using tyre levers. So far so good.
Mr Hernandez200 mile review. No flats which is why I changed to these. Only time will tell on how sturdy these tires will be but so far not bad. Easy to put on . Not as fast as the Grand Prix 4000 S II but not bad. Only time will tell on how they hold up
EifelwaldGreat grip but not made for off-road or even rough sealed roads (punctured 4 times in almost as many dirt road outings). If you keep these tires on sealed roads their puncture resistance is ok (punctured once only in a year of regular usage).
Mr FilipekI have been riding on these tyres for some time now and it was time to replace them with a new set. These tyres are very robust and last a long time whilst not being too heavy or not losing grip throughout their long life. These are great tyres for a variety of uses especially commuting or sportive rides.
Mr CantrellI have used these tyres for several years and find that I suffer very few punctures
IlanAs everyone else said very durable, hardly get punctures, been buying these again and again for years.
AndrewI researched tires heavily and these tires are well rated for weight, rolling resistance, and puncture resistance. Plus they aren't pure slicks as they have some minimal grooving to help in wetter environments. Overall these tires were a no-brainer and worth a little extra $$.
Mr WilliamsGreat Tyres. Have always used GP4000 tyres but switched to Grand Prix 4 Seasons last year. They are easily a better tyre for all weather conditions than the GP4000 and in winter they don't cut up like the GP4000'S.
MicaelaGood quality all year round tyre!
Mr McLeodNo punctures in my last set of these! And easy to fit.
IoanI'm very pleased with this tyre, excellent grip on wet and dry (better then replaced Gatorskin), good quality, puncture resistant. Hard to fit! Will buy again for sure
Sam4aI've always bought cheaper winter tyres before; usually high quality, but heavily discounted. This time I bit the bullet & bought these, based to recommendation & reviews. Only done a couple of short rides, but first impressions are they are light, responsive, very grippy & have an excellent ride quality. Only time will tell whether they are puncture resistance and worth the money.
OferVery good tyres, light, puncture resist and very good grip. Had this pair for almost a year, riding 20km a day, this is my second pair.
Kiwi RacerGood winter tyres. I normally race GP4000IIs tyres so these are the logical choice for winter months. The softer compound wears a bit quicker that other tyres but give the wet weather grip. Tests show that these tyres have the same puncture resistance as Gatorskins but much better adhesion on wet tarmac. Just wished you could get the 32mm versions more easily. 25mm measures 26.5mm width on 17.5mm internal width rim.
Mrs neviesStrong tire for all conditions, with puncture resistant features that don't come with a big speed price.
mr ianGreat tyres and great in all types of weather
MarkUltra durable for winter riding.
Mr SimpsonReally really happy with these - got them after wiping out on greasy December roads - these tyres give you the confidence to ride hard in winter - have now done about 1500 miles on them - no punctures and they stick to the road - can't recommend them enough
TomGreat as ever. Best winter tyre for me hands down.
LivioExcellent tyres - hand made in Germany. Not as fast as the GP4000, however far better when it comes to puncture protection.
FelipeThese tires offer a great grip in dry and wet conditions. I have use them for less than 100 miles but the grip to road is superior to my previous ones. They provide better grip and in result I feel more confident in my ride.
PaulBrilliant tyres so far, easy to fit, good grip and fast
AlDTougher with softer rubber than the Conti 4000s that I've used since start of summer. This is my goto winter rubber.
ROBERTOSAlways use these, for me they give me confidence going downhill at speed and round bends the grip on the road is always there.
LiorGot those as an upgrade to the Gatorskin Hardshell. So far been using them for several months including a month of NY wintery snow and although they feel much "softer" and "gripperier" than the hardshell have had no flats so far (which is saying something for the streets of Manhattan...
DavidThese tyres have given me confidence on slippery back roads and on a ride I recently went on where there was a lot of snow on the road on a long climb. Cornering on wet roads gives you a lot of confidence and haven`t had a puncture yet.
Mr JonesExcellent grip with a smooth ride compared to my old kendas
JasonWhat can I say - the best all-season 700c tyre there is.
Mr yavuzturkIt's the right choice for winter conditions. Good price
Mr TrachtenbergThese are my cold weather tire; I switch to 4000s in spring and summer. They work very well and I've gotten as much as 3500 miles out of them in commuting and recreational riding.
TerryThese are the best all year round tyres, great price, quick delivery
andrewNice tires for training. I have been using these for quite a while and will continue to use. Really good price as well.
Mr ScottoDoesn't ride great, but worth the flat protection
Ms McDonaldI have used these tires since moving to the southern US. They are durable and almost flat proof except when they pick up a wire that is hard to find in the tire.
Mr NediviFor someone who has cycled for more than 7 years now I can say that Continental Grand Prix 4 seasons are the best tires I used so far. Indeed a bit heavier but since I am not competing it is less important. They easily last 8,000 - 9,000 km. This time the price was very attractive.
Dr RenoOnly about 150 km so far but they perform nicely. and I expect to keep them on throughout the winter. I expected to maybe see some laboring on the hills with these "all season" tyres but haven't seen any so far.
Mr Marcus RetkaThe best tyre for long distance. Resistant to punctures and excellent rolling.
LeeGreat all around tire. Very smooth ride in all conditions. Can't comment on durability yet but so far extremely happy, wished I purchased these sooner.
Mr ParkerDependable tyre that I use in winter instead of GP4000S II's as it has a thicker side wall & more puncture protection. Zero punctures last winter!
LeeMy favorite winter and training tire. Good puncture resistance
Richard PerkinsGreat tyres. Really good price. These are replacing the same pair from last year. Brilliant for riding through the winter. I'm not a commuter but head out with the club most weeks. Excellent puncture resistance keeps me dry and warm!
Mr SmithTreated myself to a new set of wheels and agonised over what tyres to fit. Heading into the winter and with a few good reviews from my friends I went for the GP 4 Seasons. Probably a tad more expensive than I would have liked but so far they are living up to their hype. Grippy, fast and I have a lot of confidence in them. Will see how they last over the next few months.
MiddlesworthBest tires yet. Good puncture resistance but very supple and sure footed. Perfect tire for long training rides and double centuries. I have more than 4k miles on my current front tire and it should go another 2k at least. Rear tire lasts about 2.3k miles. Most of my riding is in the hills and mountains.
spmHave been really happy with these tires so far. Seem very solid and sturdy. I have ridden in the rain with them a few times and these seem to grip well too, which is why I got them. No flats so far!
Mr DalquistGreat tire, I commute on this daily in Seattle. They roll great in the summer and grip well in the wet winters.
Mr TraynorUsing these in a 700x25 after GP4000S for the autumn & winter seasons. Ride just as well, rolling resistance wise. Stronger tread & sidewall ideal for the rough/wet roads.
Mr WrightThis is my 2nd set now as the first where that good. Finally found a trye that won't break the bank and are really good.
Mr AchillesChanged to 4 season from 4000s for training all year round and I haven't regretted it at all. Looks cool at the same time.
Mr camposFantastic tyre, a little heavier than the 4000s but durability and puncture resistance makes it a great all year long tyre.
Mr MarshThey're Continentials. What more needs said? They are tough and last forever. Gritty roads? No problem. Slick roads? No problem. I switched from Conti's to another brand that lasted 4 months. Never do that again.
Mr MasonQuite the best Winter tyre; Training tyre; Fast Does-Anything Tyre I have ever used; You can get faster but at the cost of either reliability or grip is less than perfect conditions (like we ride all the time).
DongaGreat tires (28) for my go-everywhere bike. I got 5000 km out of the rear and the front is still ok. I use this on the road and sometimes on gravel and single track. Only one flat ever.
WangGreat tire for commuting in wet season, also great puncture protection
CantyThis is a replacement for the same which after about 3000 steep miles on the rear had worn out. Confidence giving level of grip in the wet.
andersonI installed these on my new Felt Z5, which had 25 mm, easy to install and works well, I now have 28 mm and a better ride. Good looking tires as well !!
Mr burgessSaved my life on the first ride.. was going 40km/h down a wet road, crossed a white line around a corner. I slipped but stayed upright, I'd be in hospital on my old tyres.
Ms WagnerI'm pleased with my purchase. Decided to go with these because they have a thicker sidewall than the other Contis.
HamiltonThey are the best tyres, I run the 700 x 25 4 season all year round, great stability, fantastic in all weather conditions here in Australia. Great value tyres
worsfoldExcellent reliable tyre and I can fit myself being a woman. Wouldn't buy anything else
ClokeGrand Prix 4 season are my go to tyre. A good mix of speed, puncture resistance and comfort.
DanaGreat product and better price than anywhere local. I use these tires all year round and they are great in all conditions. Pretty good flat protection as well. Only time they did not last was when I got a construction staple in my tire. Other than that they are great till they have worn out.
Yee FengHave commuted through the winter months on these and they're absolutely bomb-proof.
The JasperI bought these to replace a pair of Schwalbe Luganos. I noticed an immediate improvement because they roll better and the grip on wet and muddy roads is vastly superior. The build quality is ace and I will be using them on my winter trainer/commuter bike (Cannondale aluminium Synapse) so they will get a hammering in all weathers.
ClokeThese are the best all round tyres you can get. Great grip, reasonable puncture resistance and low rolling resistance. I've raced with these tyres. Whats more Merlin offer great service and a good price.
Mr KadowAfter more than three years of continuous riding my back wheel needed a new GP 4 Season in 25mm. In my opinion, they are simply the best and most robust types on the market as their performance even in wet conditions is simply amazing. Best value for money with this deal here as well!
O'HaraJust bought new tyres from yourselves at a very good price. I have ridden 4 Seasons previously and find them excellent. This time I ordered 25s as our roads in the west of Ireland have taken a hammering over the winter. Continental tyres speak for themselves.
JonesyOnly ridden 100 miles or so on these tyres but they definitely seem to roll faster than the stock rubber that came with my bike. Grip in the wet seems better to and perhaps the ride is smoother. Too soon to vouch for the durability and puncture protection but I am a Continental fan so I am hoping the 4 Seasons match the high standards of all the other tyres I've ridden from this brand. First class service from Merlin Cycles, with rapid delivery and bargain price too.
Mr BrakesI put a pair of GP 4 Seasons on my road bike for the winter conditions and I have had no skidding/sliding during this winter of much rain, and I can ride with confidence. I have however picked up a few nicks in the tread , one being quite deep stretching down onto the side wall. so I purchased a spare tyre from Merlin which at the time was the cheapest and delivered in 2 days. I am pleased with these tyres up to now, longevity is yet to be assessed.
Mr andersonGood tyre, rolls really well with decent grip in wet
Mr WrightHave been using GP4000 25s for the summer, but decided to get these following a puncture in wet conditions. Was hoping for something with a similar feel, but more puncture protection. So far, these are exactly what I was looking for. I got the 28 size, and they feel very similar to 25 GP4000s, and so far (touch wood) no punctures, despite several rides in poor conditions on mud and debri strewn lanes, great stuff. Also, great price from Merlin and reliable delivery as usual.
BenAn extra puncture resistance without compromise
Mr WhitleyThe best tyres I`ve used, won`t use anything else
Mr RamseierGood balance of durability and puncture resistance. These tires wear faster than the Gatorskins, but will give a better ride. Puncture resistance seems comparable.
Mr AtkinsonBeen having punctures so thought I would try these. So far excellent.
Mr LewisGreat training tires, good grip, and rarely have flat issues until I have ridden them 300 miles beyond their expiration date. These tires last and last well beyond where a normal person would change tires based on wear with no increase in flat potential. When they do go though, it's time to change them, but usually at that point I have 2-3 spots that are worn all the way to the inner fabric casing.
Fabrício OliveiraGreat tires. I ride with him yesterday 80km. I don't have problem with the tires.
Mr KenneyI like them. More tread that GP4000s with no major speed loss that I can notice. They are on my winter bike ready for the wet / winter ahead.
LebrunMy first impression, these tires are handling very good and giving me safe feeling on road.
Mr AdlersbergBest tires for commuting in nyc roads.... 25mm is the way to go
Mr limThe Conti GP 4x tires are amazing. For training on wet and dry condition. Can't go wrong with these.
JakoolisSimply the best all round training tyre you can buy. This tyre is the perfect way to survive some of the shocking road surfaces we have in the UK.
Warren FrostMy second round with this tire now and they are awesome. Long lasting and ideal for any road.
Mr RingOnly had them on my bike two weeks, but they are a noticeable improvement from my last tires! I came off my bike a few times over the last 6 months due to speeding around corners, and these have definitely helped me in feeling safe to travel at speed again.
Mr TomlinsonGood grip, but remember some extra wight
Mr ShawExcellent tyres. Great handling in wet and dry and very stable. Perfect tyre for training and for touring and being foldable are easy to fit. Have found them to be more hard wearing than the Continental GP4000S which are also excellent tyres.
Mr WalkerIMHO the best all round tyres you can buy. Use them for Audax, circuit racing and general road riding. Only replaced current one as looking a bit bald and worn ready for some long rides. Superb grip over this last weekend in a very wet peak district especially on downhills
Mr Mørk NielsenAwesome tyre. Been using it for a while, and has good grip and no flats so far
James - HampshireI ordered 25mm as I prefer the added comfort over 23mm. They dont look quite as wide as the 25mm GP4000s but no reason to doubt Continentals measurement. Took them out for a spin this weekend, short 30 mile blast around the Hampshire countryside Very happy that I replaced the previous tyres only purchased last month (Vittoria Diamante Pro Radial) please read my review on these. I was expecting the four seasons to offer slightly more rolling resistance than they did so was pleasantly surprised that I found them to be just as quick as the GP4000s. The tyres certainly gave me back the confidence I had previously so felt I was able to push harder on descents rather than ride with caution I appreciate my review is only after a single ride so cant offer any feedback on the tyre lifespan, however Im very happy as I feel I have my bike back Thanks Merlin / Continental
JeffGreat tires - really durable and long wearing. No punctures on over 7 months riding on my current primary bike. Putting them on all my bikes.
Mr GilksTop tyres, got me through the Paris Roubaix Challenge without a single puncture or crash! 5 Stars Recommended. Top service by Merlin too
Mr ChebulThe tires appear to be well made. My initial impression is positive. They were easy to mount and look good.
Mr DykesThe previous tyre was very good. I think I had two punctures. Rolls well. Lasted nearly 5000 miles (rear) on a bike that I carry stuff on a rack. I also ride rough back roads all year round. The tyre tread split but the inner was ok. However I retired it at that stage. I replaced it with the same tyre. Ordered it Sun night and was at my house on Monday pm.
Mr saundersonMy choice for winter riding, gives a good balance between grip, protection, weight, comfort and speed. Not the cheapest but again not too expensive for what you get.
Mr RobertsSuperb, great price, great product. Easy to fit on the bike and no punctures on a 45 mile ride. Feel slightly slower than my original Luganos but given that they puncture every 2 minutes I'm happy to be a bit slower on the ride if it saves me half an hour fixing a puncture. Delivered within 24hrs on a normal postage! Very quick turnaround can't recommend enough based on that.
Mr FernandezLove these tyres... Come up a little short of 25mm but otherwise they are fast and light for winter tyres.
Alin AndronicGreat looking tire and a nice grip on the road. Very tight to get on the rim so if you like that snug feel, this is the tire to have
Mr GenoveseFive stars. The tires are durable and provide a comfortable ride.
ChrisExcellent tyre. Additional grip in icy conditions to build confidence. Feels good on the road surface too. Great service delivery from Merlin
SkrotalLove these tyres. Just replacing my first set after 5000km. Only had one pinch flat in that time on rocky gravel. They are nice and grippy and fast enough. Originally for the winter but I am just using them all year now.
BslowMy favorite training tire. I have only flatted once using it and that was when I ran a tire about 500km past when the inner casing began showing! I ride about 2000km a month with plenty of gravel and these tires last and keep me rolling instead of fixing flats. Love them.
Mr henryI went the entire length of wear without a flat. I live in Northern California and many of rides include rugged coastal trails with exposed rocks. I can't say enough good things about these tires.
Mr WalkerAn existing favourite of mine, did London Edinburgh London 1400km on them in 2013 with only one puncture.
Mr BoltThese tires are fantastic for daily road training. The reinforced side walls provide great protection from debris on the road.
Mr CastilhosThe best tyre, perfect to use in big cities
Mr MatchuraBest road tire I have found for any pavement that is not maintained well. The only drawback is the tread is designed to work on wet surfaces and so wears a bit quicker than a lot of other armored tires out there. Still, I have ridden through broken glass without any flats. Worth the shorter life.
ThomasTrusty tires, very good grip in the wet and hard wearing
Mr JonesI bought these to replace the stock tyres on my Boardman CX Comp as I'm just riding on roads at the moment. I'm not a weight weenie but I saved 800g swapping to these tyres and that's a noticeable saving. At first I thought they were not that grippy, but after checking and lowering my tyre pressure (100 psi rear, 80 psi front) they have great traction in the wet as well as the rare occasion it's dry too! They are a bit pricey but Merlin had the best price by quite a bit and I feel like I've got a quality product for my money
Mr Beveridge3 punctures in 2 days of winter commuting using GP4000s, switched to GP 4 season and not had a problem since. Usual Continental quality and incredibly sure footed on wet roads.
Mr HughesThere is no other Winter Tyre as good as these. Flint proof for the Southdowns and Northern France - lets you get more miles in without those hideous, wet and cold, roadside puncture repairs.
Mr DaviesI've fitted a pair of these on both my bike and my wife's. Both of us commented that they were a little twitchy at the start, but seemed to clear at the end do a quick 15 mile cycles. Very easy to fit on both bikes, usual Continental quality.
Mr MiddletonGreat tyres for the winter ahead. My last set lasted 4 years/winters without any major wear n tear. Merlin came up trumps with best price too
KRBought a new GP4S to replace a worn one. Can't fault these tyres really, particularly as far as puncture protection goes. I commute 15-20 miles each way on a lot of bad roads with plenty of broken glass and have only suffered one penetrative puncture in 12 months (compared to five in five weeks on the terrible Conti Ultraraces that came on the bike). The tread does seem to cut quite easily, but patently not a lot gets through the Vectran belt. The GP4Ss roll fine and grip is great, even on greasy, wet roads. Pity they don't look a bit sweeter, but that's just vanity.
Ms PragnellGreat Tyre, really robust, no complaints, hence reordering!
Mr sanchez diazThis is the second time I buy this tires, and I'm very satisfied. Great durability and avoid flat tire. I'm going to keep buying this tires in the future. Definitely
Mr DykesGood rolling tyre and hoping it lives up to billing only had it on 100 miles so cannot say how long it will last
Mr rutaSuper durable winter tyres especially on the back wheel which suffers punctures more frequently but this tyre minmises this.
Roger LuntGreat winter tyre from Continental. Superfast delivery from Merlin as always.
Mr AdamsBrilliant used these for the last few years, durable and other than a puncture on the first ride 3 years ago I've used these tyres for the last few winters with no issues at all. Fast and grippy too!
Mr MacKayI have used GP 4 Season tyre on the front wheel for the past 12 months and been very satisfied with good grip even in cold winter days and in the wet. This new tyre is going on the rear ready for the winter. I have found these tyres have been good at resisting punctures
Mr Lobatobest products deal, I am happy with Merlincycles online store, very efficient staff to proccess orders.
