Continental Launches Grand Prix 5000 TT TR Tire

Continental has launched the same tire used by Fillipo Ganna to set the Hour Record back in October 2022, with the introduction of its Grand Prix 5000 TT TR.

Now a permanent addition, the Grand Prix 5000 TT TR joins the already award-winning Grand Prix 5000 performance tubeless tire range, having previously been released as a Limited Edition 25mm tire in celebration of the 2022 Tour de France. The Grand Prix 5000 TT TR will now be available in 28mm.

Touted as the ultimate speed-focussed tubeless ready tire, Continental states that the Grand Prix 5000 TT TR gives racing cyclists the lowest possible weight and coefficient of rolling resistance thanks to optimised tread thickness and construction to reduce material deformation at the contact point between road and tire.

Uniquely for speed-focussed performance tire, the Grand Prix 5000 TT TR includes optimized puncture protection and tear resistance.

“We are excited to roll out the Grand Prix 5000 TT TR for racers and teams as a permanent addition to the Grand Prix 5000 TR range. Riders now have the opportunity to choose the perfect tyre for their race tactics, whether they’re chasing a personal best, a sprint finish or a world record.” Oliver Anhuth, Head of Marketing, Continental.

Key features of the Grand Prix 5000 TT TR:

  • Weight: from 220g
  • Dimensions: 25-622, 28-622
  • Technology: Black Chili Compound, Vectran Breaker, LazerGrip, Active Comfort Technology.
  • The Grand Prix 5000 TT TR is 35 grams lighter in 25-622 than the equivalent size Continental’s Grand Prix 5000 S TR

As with every Continental Grand Prix 5000 tire in 25-622, the new Grand Prix 5000 TT TR tire is hookless compatible up to 21 TSS and tubeless ready, giving racers the freedom to choose their preferred tire setup. In 28-622 the tire is hookless compatible up to 25 TSS, weighing in at 235g. A pairing of 25-622 for the front tire and 28-622 for the rear tire provides the lowest overall rolling resistance and greatest racing performance.

Available exclusively in the black sidewall colorway, the Grand Prix 5000 TT TR utilizes Continental’s unique BlackChili Compound for the ultimate balance of rolling resistance and grip and the Vectran Breaker for puncture protection and five-times greater tear resistance than a comparable nylon breaker.
