The Continental Grand Prix 4000 S is the smart tire choice no matter what your road cycling conditions are. With Continental's patented Vectran Breaker technology, you won't be tearing holes in the 4000 S any time soon. Vectran is a liquid crystal molecular compound which makes the 4000 S virtually invisible to thorns and since it's a polyester compound, it doesn't make the casing stiffer.
The new Grand Prix 4000 S (Schwarz) uses Continental's exclusive Black Chili rubber compound and a sleek black sidewall color scheme. The Magic of Black chili lies in Continental's ability to refine Carbon Black particles to the size of a soccer ball relative to the earth, compared with standard particles. Carbon Black is a filler that reinforces the rubber. Since those particles are now much smaller, it allows more rubber to be in contact with the ground. Thus Black Chili tires have 30% more grip, 26% less rolling resistance, and 5% more mileage than Conti's non-black chili tires. An independent German cycling magazine also found this tire to be superior on wet roads than it's competitors. Found on the bikes of Team Columbia-High Road, Team Type 1, The BMC Racing Team and others, the Continental Grand Prix 4000 S tires are a maximum performance race tire that will inspire confidence with every mile.
