I've put in about 1,000 miles on these Continentals and I'm impressed. Impressed from the very first corner to be honest, none of the Continental 'squeak' that I was expecting, just a reassuring gummy lean..I've been confident on wet, greasy and mossy green corners, rider cojones giving way long before the tyre has any inkling to, and they've coped well with the dry/wet/dry mix of this Summer's roads.Report this review
Was considering more expensive tyres , but decided to try these and sure haven't regretted it!
Equally confident in wet and dry conditions. Roads around here are not in the best state, yet the tires tackle it perfectly! Enjoying the 24mm width, feels more comfortable than my narrower race ones!
Great performance at a great price deserves 5 stars from me
These tires ride great and handle any road condition including the extremely hot chip and seal roads of Texas.Report this review
I was looking at a couple of different contis (GP4000s and GP 4 Season) before I came across these at a great price. I purchased the original GPs (24mm) and I believe I made a good decision. No issues with weak sidewalls, though I think Continental fixed that issue years ago, and they seem to be wearing quite well after 1k miles.Report this review
In my 30 years of riding and racing, I have decided that Continental tires are the only "premium" clincher that is really worth the premium price.
These 24 mm Grand Prix's are my favourite, just because the 23mm seems too narrow and 25mm seems too wide.
I would take ANY MODEL Conti over any other bra
I have only ridden on these for a few hundred miles but so far I am impressed. Very comfortable and they really easy to mount. Only negative I can think of at the moment is that the tires seem alittle sticky (not in a good way). .. I guess thats what they mean by rolling resistance.Report this review
Roll great, stick to the surface with none of the Gatorskin wet weather issues. So far done about 1500kms and still have the mould seam on the front, so appear to wear well with the extra mm in rubber.Report this review
I bought the bundle when it was on discount and put them on a training bike. I've found they have the durability of the GP4000 23mm and may feel a bit more cushier, but that might be more psychological than anything else. Anyhow, great value.Report this review
Bought twin pack with tubes included from probikekit for a very good price. Great deal! Received order within 8 business days. Tires went on easily on Shimano rims. I ride a Cervelo 09 S1.
I am comparing these tires to Vittoria Pro Slicks, and Michelin Pro 3's. Compared to the Vitt's they are stickier on corners, ride is much smoother, and seem to roll as well. Compared to Michelin Pro 3's the ride is smoother, the cornering in better, and seem to roll as fast. They really smooth out my aluminum bike and I am very happy with my purchase and would buy again.
I have only put @200 miles on the tires and will comment again when I reach 3000 miles.
