Strengths:    Great ride and puncture resistance.

Weaknesses:    Weak side-walls. Very prone to tears.

Bottom Line:   
I've been riding on Conti's for years. They provide a great ride and are fairly puncture resistant, so I don't get many flats, but the durability is very poor. I have never been able to get full wear out of a set of these tires. They are very prone to tears of the side-wall. I've ridden on my last pair of Continental 4000's. Time to switch to another brand.

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.
