Continental has unveiled its latest tire called the Grand Prix 5000 S TR, which broke cover during last weekend’s Paris-Roubaix Classic.
The new Grand Prix 5000 S TR features a tubeless-ready design that’s compatible with hookless wheels, touting not only improved performance over the out-going Grand Prix 5000 TL, but easier to mount thanks to its hookless design.
In fact, Continental makes such bold claims as the new tire being 20% faster, 50g lighter and having 28% more sidewall protection than its predecessor.
“We created this new tire to combine maximum performance with ease of use and reliability, regardless of whether a cyclist chooses to race, to spend long days out exploring the roads, to ride through summer or all year round. All new hookless compatibility and tubeless capabilities will put convenience without compromise at the heart of every cyclist’s ride,” boasts Continental’s head of marketing, Oliver Anhuth
“Available in black or black with a transparent sidewall, the Grand Prix 5000 S TR utilizes our patented BlackChili Compound for the ultimate balance of rolling resistance, grip and longevity, Vectran Breaker for puncture protection and tear resistance and Lazer Grip for outstanding cornering,” adds Anhuth.
The Grand Prix 5000 S TR will become available this month for 79,90€ per tire.
