German magazine TOUR has featured a comprehensive road tire test, covering many aspects of tire performance, even including 'real time' wet grip where their human tester donned motorcycle leathers and pushed his specially adapted test bicycle to the limit on each different set of tires.
The Continental GP4000s II was a clear winner by performing well in all areas.
Not only the German magazines are cocksure! The magazine BICYCLING from the USA announced:
This is not only the best Conti ever but, all things considered, one of the best tires ever made.
Fast, smart, special
The Grand Prix 4000s II boasts global appeal as the best all round race bike tire on the market. Not only is it fast and super grippy, thanks to its state of the art Black Chili rubber compound, but it is also tough with a healthy tread layer and of course our Vectran anti puncture breaker layer underneath.
So for reliability, longevity and all out performance for your race machine, the GP 4000s II is the only choice.
- advanced BlackChili compound for low rolling resistance, high mileage and maximum wet weather grip
- A proven tyre with a facelift, new colours, new design, tried and tested technology
- New sizes in 23-622, 25-622 and for poor conditions, 28-622
- Vectran breaker for unsurpassed puncture protection
