I swapped to Continental GP 4000 II's a few years ago and was very happy with them so when these were announced while I had doubts they'd be much better I certainly wanted to try them out. Thanks to Merlin I get to do that at about half the price of buying them locally. So far they haven't disappointed but I will need more miles to tell how they wear. I also went with 28mm which is larger than I've used on a road bike before so the rides will not be directly comparable but I will say this that unless you can average over 40KM/h and you have the clearance 28's are highly recommended
Bought these based on reviews I’d read and although ridden only 3 times they feel great on descents , cornering and even in the rain 👍
This was the most efficient purchase I’ve done ever, soft, good traction, high puncture resistance.
A leap up from the 4000. Have done 100 miles on them and am very pleased-they ride like a good tub with comfort and low resistance. When funds allow will buy more for my other steed
Great tires. Excellent traction and fast.
Fast grippy and comfortable. In my opinion better than gp4000 and corsa speeds. Good price at Merlin too
Excellent Tyre more confortable after 1500 km than Conti GP 4000IIS. Time will tell for the rest
Excellent product. Improvement over GP4000. Have logged over 1500 miles and no signs of wear. Miles were logged in upstate New York in April and May when roads are pretty crappy. Just ordered a backup set to have on hand when replacement is needed. Merlin deal for 2 tires and 2 tubes cost less than 1 tire at my local bike shop!! Received order in 7 days.
Highly recommended. More confortable than the excellent Conti GP 4000 IIS. Very competitive price from Merlin. As usual, excellent service fast shipping to Canada
Very pleased with these tyres - they are much lighter than GP4000s, and seem to roll better too.
Ordered 28mm tyres for my Canyon aeroad (disc version). Arrived quickly, fit really well, no clearance issues and delivery to the UAE a smooth process in just 5 days.
I love Conti's - they stick to the road like glue! These are their latest and Merlin prices make them affordable.
These are best of all the tyres I've used so far...
Outstanding tires! I switched from Bontrager tires, and I immediately noticed the difference. Very smooth, excellent traction, and after the first 500 miles on them, no visible knicks or damage to the tires. Very pleased with these!
Do Continental GP5000 really need a review??? The best!!!
Time will tell if these are much different than the GP4000 but initial impressions are positive with tyre providing grip and comfort in dry and wet weather.
Awesome tyres at a reasonable price
Amazing rolling resistance and tire feel. Quite a step up from my stock tires. Thanks for the fast shipping and great prices Merlin!
What an amazing upgrade! I was a little sceptical of other anecdotal feedback, but having ridden then myself I am well impressed by the improvements when compared to the tried and trusted GP4000S II's!
Love these new tyres, 28s only slightly wider than the old gp4000s 25s, they're very comfortable and roll great. There's so much grip too! Worth the extra, great deal from Merlin!
What a bargain!, noticeable difference from the 4000s
Insanely good
Having used the GP4000's over the past 10 years, I was not disappointed with the new GP's 5000. The texture of the Tyre feels different and the tread pattern has changed. The initial feel on the road using 25mm is great. Sustained 35-40k on bitumen roads including tight cornering easily matches the superseded 4000's. No punctures to date. Well worth the purchase.
I have been sworn by these tyres by many in my riding group. Comfy and smooth ride, with great efficiency.
Brilliant tyres. So much grip and can run the pressures a little lower as these are an upgrade from having 25mm GP4000s
Only done a couple of rides but early days, they feel fast and light. No punctures, no slips on new rubber,they feel grippy but roll well. They fitted easily onto my dura ace c40 wheels and feel like quality rubber in your hand.I think these tyres are going to be around for a long time.
Great looking tyres and I'm sure they'll ride fantastic as per usual from Conti GP. My 32s were awesome but I've switched them to my hybrid for some slight aero gains. The biggest problem I've got is trying to get them on my DT swiss rims. I had no issues with the 32s, but I've killed 3 inner tubes trying to get the 28s on, and I'm not a rank amateur at tyre changes.
I have always loved Conti's GP4000's and have used them all year round for many years, so it was a no-brainer to try the GP5000 for my new race bike. Previously I have ridden tubular for racing but as I have a nice set of 50mm Campag deep section clincher rims I decided to fit these with a decent tyre for racing, went for the 25mm front and rear. They certainly feel good and I won my first 2 races using them though not all that can be put down to the tyre. Not cheap but if you want a fast high performance road bike tyre then I definitely recommend.
Ordered on Saturday. Received the tires on Monday. Really easy to fit seem to have good grip and roll like specialzed turbo cotton tires fast and comfortable. But about £25 per pair cheaper. I would buy them again
Great tires. Even better than the GP 4000, plus they are truer to size so the 28s actually fit my frame.
Great tires at a great price. These tires perform well in all conditions and are very puncture resistance.
Best tires I have ever ridden on .
Fantastic all round tyres. I got the 32s and the grip, comfort and stability is fantastic. I've decided to switch the 32s to my hybrid and go for 28s on my roadie to help get a few more kph if I can. Only done 150km so far, but they still look brand new and haven't had a single sketchy moment despite some horrific weather on my rides.
Switched from gp4000 to these. They feel pretty similar so far, fast rolling, grippy in the wet and no punctures as yet. So far so good. Time will tell with durability. As always, good price from Merlin!
Definite improvement in grip over the 4000.
Great tires. Long tread life and highly puncture resistant
Great tyres. Light weight with low rollling resistance. These are perfect for my new carbon rims.
Absolutely awesome
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.
