Strengths:    Fast, Good road "feel", easy to change

Weaknesses:    Not very durable - Tire cuts and flats easily. Two flats in the course of a week (200mi.) Tires properly fitted, inflated and ridden on relatively clean roads.

Bottom Line:   
Won't buy again. I expect greater dependability for the price of this set.

Strengths:    grip, light, rolling resistance

Weaknesses:    They do seem as if they are wearing quickly

Bottom Line:   
I had a pretty old pair of 2002 tires that I have been riding on for a very long time but it was time for an upgrade. I could instantly notice much better handling and a much smoother rolling resistance.

Strengths:    good reviews (elsewhere)

Weaknesses:    pick up sidewall damage all too easily.

Bottom Line:   
put these on my winter bike, looking forward to the benefits of well thought of tyres. however, i have managed to destroy both inside 1 month (600 miles). i'm 210lbs so i guess i give tyres a good work out, but both front and back have developed side wall failures at 110 psi.

i think continental have over-rated this tyre!!

Strengths:    Grip, low rolling resistance, looks

Weaknesses:    Picks up cuts from gravel and punctures in wet once a bit worn!

Bottom Line:   
Bought these as owner of my lbs said they were the best tyres he'd ever used. They look great, grip great - even in the wet and give great feel. However they do ride a little harsh and wear out very quickly. They're quite suseptable to cuts - which they would be as their a soft race tyre. I got 2 puntures on the rear, both on a wet bit of roadwhen the tread was wearing thin at 1400 miles on my first rear, then 800 miles on my second (I must have ridden the second pair harder hey?) The second punture rote the tyre off as it bulged. You pay your money and take your choice! For racing where grip is a priority they're great - you just change them when they wear out! If you intend to use them in this manner and can afford to change the rear every 1000miles and front every 1500 then buy them. For all rounders the GP4000 would be better. I don't why so many people complain about them as if you read Continental's guide they're not recommended for training of Spotives!
