Strengths:    Fast tires

Weaknesses:    Wayyy too many flats.

Bottom Line:   
Can't believe I let myself get talked into buying these. But the LBS was out of the Gatorskins, so...
I've now tossed them in the rubbish bin after using just half the tread life (if that) and going back to Gatorskins. I have had sooo many flats on the 4000s. A dozen this year alone. Half the time it was tiny shards of glass that should not have gone through to puncture the tube. I like the speed, they're light and easy to take on and off, but I am never buying these again.

Strengths:    Good Grip

Weaknesses:    Missing Logo on Reflex Version

Bottom Line:   
Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II Road Tyre Reflex without the logo. I purchased these because of the reviews and the kudos of the Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II brand as pictured in the clever advertising. However the reflex version is not branded and is just a plain tyre and could be any cheaper branded tyre. In fact I think it is just the plain 4000 version.

Strengths:    The Continental Grand Prix 4000s stick reasonably well when turning and ride well when racing - but that's all

Weaknesses:    Poor rubber build that sustains cuts and punctures even on main roads and cycle paths - dont waste your time

Bottom Line:   
The Continental Grand Prix 4000s needs to improve on handling as cheaper tyres provide better 'feel' for different road conditions. The big problem is durability. The tyres sustain many cuts even though the tyre travel only 100 KMS. These tyres simply cannot be trusted as they puncture easily due to high degradation of the rubber - eg sustain many and deep cuts. The result (at speed) is flat tyres that can cause an injury and plenty of frustration

Conti Grand Prix vs Grand Prix 4000S

I bought a second hand bike with old, but low mileage, Conti Grand Prix tires. 3,500 miles later I had my first puncture flat from a simple staple. Both tires are fairly squared off, but I'm wondering how much longer I should ride on them. I have new GP 4KS tires in the box, but don't want to waste ... Read More »

Sidewall cut - Grand Prix 4000s

Rather than hijack the recent thread on the gatorskin sidewall failure, I’ll start my own. I hit something yesterday which put a cut in the side wall of my rear tire. A few of the casing treads are cut and it looks fairly deep considering how thin the sidewall is. Can this tire be considered sa ... Read More »

Grand Prix 4000s okay for everyday?

Vittoria Rubino Pro Slicks with only 300 miles on them and I got two little cuts/chunks out of the tire, one on the front and one on the rear. I am afraid to ride them now. I liked the ride, but am leery of getting them again. Would Grand Prix 4000s be okay for everyday riding? I try not to ride ... Read More »
