About Continental Grand Prix 4000S II 700X25C Folding Road Tyre
The best all-rounder
the ideal combination of comfort, puncture protection and low rolling resistance
perfect all-rounder for all conceivable conditions
excellent puncture protection thanks to Vectran™ puncture protection insert
excellent grip, high mileage and efficient rolling thanks to BlackChili Compound
A new relationship between grip and rolling resistance
This unique tread rubber mixture which is only produced in our German factory has revolutionised bicycle tyres.
BlackChili Compound improves rolling resistance by 26 % and provides 30 % more grip than activated silica compounds.
Premium tyres with BlackChili Compound also impress with higher mileage and unlike many multi-compounds, provide a constant ride from the first to the last kilometre.
The benchmark in puncture protection
Vectran™ is a synthetically manufactured high-tech fibre from a natural model. Like spider silk, Vectran™ is a liquid-crystalline polymer (LCP). Vectran™ is spun from the melted liquid polymer Vectra and processed further to a multi-strand thread. Spider silk like Vectran™ has an enormous tear resistance at a very low weight: Exactly the right properties to process into a premium Continental bicycle tyre as a puncture protection insert. A Vectran™ Breaker is lighter, more flexible and protects more effectively against cuts than the comparable nylon breaker. Vectran™ Breaker does not adversely affect the rolling resistance.
About Bike Tires
Investing in a good robust bike tire means no stopping over punctures, care-free ride over potholes, shards, and other picky objects sticking out of the road. Before you buy a bike tire, make sure you’re aware of the correct bike size, your purpose of buying a specific tire and what kind of bike riding(road, urban, off-road) you’re into. Road tires are sleek and smooth, can retain high pressure. Hybrid tires are suitable for everyday city rides whereas mountain bike tires come equipped with treads for firm grip and handling over the uneven surface.
More than 100 years experience in the development and production of bicycle tires has made Continental a unique company within the industry. Continental is the only German bicycle tire manufacturer to produce its tires in Germany. Knowing this serves as a mighty incentive to our engineers and everyone else involved in the manufacturing process to constantly strive for further innovations. In our technology and development center in Korbach, we are constantly developing new revolutionary technologies such as the unbeatable Black Chili Compound and the ultimate Vectran™ Breaker anti-puncture technology, both used at the top end of race sport. These technologies demand sophisticated processes to ensure our legendary end-product quality, and these innovations as well as the new “ProTection” and ”RaceSport” technology for MTB tires, can only be manufactured in our factory in Germany – “Handmade in Germany”
